Beverly Hills Ninja

Either Tommy Boy was a serious anomaly in Chris Farley's repertoire, or his talent blazed for that brief time and faded straight away – resulting in the atrociously unfunny Black Sheep and this marginally better effort.

A ninja 'master' and idiot (Farley playing Farley) is approached at home in LA by a beautiful blonde (Sheridan) to help her with a case in Japan. Thinking he's a great ninja warrior, he goes with his master's blessing, who secretly sends his brother (a real ninja) to watch over him and undo the inevitable damage.

The laughs are there fairly often, but the surprise is gone and the jokes not as funny, and all in all this is another lame cash in on Farley's talent, one that falls short. His last starring role before his drug overdose death.
