Storyline

Brothers Johnny, an adolescent surf talent, and Adam, a preadolescent video-game addict, grow up care-free in California as adopted sons of Marines veteran Mac, inseparable friends of wacky local lout Iggy. Colonel Chi's military reign of terror culminates in their tiny birth-land, island state Patu San, off the Viet Nam coast. Former royal guards officer Zatch comes to summon the brothers to return and restore the pacific monarchy, because they are the sons of the murdered king, whom Mac took in exile for safety. They are joined on the adventurous journey by a bored Californian police detective whose attention was drawn by the ninja team that failed, thanks to Zatch, to murder the brothers in Mac's home.

Patheticly Funny
25 January 2001 | by kozoutSee all my reviews

This movie I saw on Showtime this year, and laughed heavily at its stupidity. The whole premise of the movie is absurd, and the commercial tie-ins are very low-brow. But regardless, this movie is worth watching because it is so patheticly funny. The stupid jokes,the silly stereotypical characters, and the horrible music are enough to make a non-overzealous movie fan laugh out loud.
