I just caught 1993’s Surf Ninjas on HBO and I have one question: Is this a real movie, or did the early 90s just throw up on me?
Here are some of the many things that Surf Ninjas brings to the table:
Ernie Reyes, Jr.
the Sir Laurence Olivier of our generation
If you thought he was good
as the rapping lizard from Fern Gully…
This guy standing around and acting Asian
With so many Asians out there, why does
this guy get so much screen time?
Answer: sex appeal.
In Surf Ninjas, he gets trampled by an elephant. Har har.
An NES videogame that is somehow linked to reality
Not the Ralph Bakshi film about Nazis
Little kids that overcome their day-to-day problems by learning karate
Jonathan Brandis before he trained talking dolphins
Rob Schneider as a high school student (!)
Surfers in SoCal with limited intelligence
A monkey that steals things and causes mischief, but actually ends up helping our heroes along
the little-seen prequel to American Beauty
OK. IS IT GAY?
