At least former SNL crew members are consistent: They make stupid films aimed at third-graders. Rescued as a child and mistaken for the Great White Ninja, American Haru (Farley) is raised by Japanese martial-arts experts. A disappointment to his clan, his fellow ninjas are happy to see him go when a beautiful American (Sheridan) asks him to spy on her counterfeiter boyfriend. Beverly Hills Ninja is little more than a series of sight gags that depend on Farley's girth.
