This just might be simultaniously the worst and most hilarious movie of all time. The "jokes" could have been written by Bob Sagat, and if the script was written by a 4th grade class, it would be yet another testament to the poor quality of education in our country. One interesting note though, is that Roberts' "co-star", (thankfully I don't know his name) is almost more annoying than Roberts himself! I've seen this movie around 5 or 6 times on daytime HBO, and it gets funnier every time. But I warn you, watch it only with a friend, because without one to help you through, the possibility of suicide becomes all too real. END

It is painfully true that the script for Tiger Heart is horrible. In fact, it feels like there was no script and the movie was just thrown together. Having said that, you have to admire the amazing karate of T.J. Roberts. He had to be the best teen martial artist I remember. He had unbelievable moves. If he had been cast in the lead role in Karate Kid, the movie would have been more believable and an even bigger success. So if you're looking for Hamlet, skip this flick. If you want to see the little scrawney teen kick the cool guys butts, you'll love Tiger Heart

"Tiger Heart" is the most recent solo vehicle for teenaged karate hero Ted Jan Roberts, and while I think it's better than his previous The Power Within, it falls short of his best work, A Dangerous Place. It's a fun slice of mid-90s nostalgia that's unfortunately cluttered by an unfocused screenplay and a couple unlikeable touches, but if you can somehow get around paying the ridiculous price it's going for these days, it's worth picking up the DVD for fans of any of the abovementioned.

The story: martial arts-practicing teenager Eric (Roberts) becomes romantically involved with a pretty girl (Jennifer Lyons, Transylmania) whose family-operated market has become the target of a greedy property baron (Kristopher Kriesa, House of Blood) and his gang of ruthless enforcers.

Whether or not you enjoy this movie will largely depend on how much fluffy padding you can tolerate in a 90-minute film. I didn't count the minutes, but a fair chunk of the flick consists of nonstop bantering between Roberts and his onscreen pal (Timothy Williams, Cheers), shared goo-goo eyes between Roberts and Jennifer Lyons, and random throwaway scenes like when Roberts and Williams get harassed on their way to a party, resulting in a very short car chase.

Call it a cop-out, but there is an automatically redeeming element to a movie that sticks to the basics and refuses to take itself too seriously. And nowhere is this more important than in the world of "B" martial arts flicks, though Jet Li's work has managed to downplay a lot of the comedic elements in favor of a deeper, philosophical style of message that has proven to be masterfully effective. Languishing in the 2nd tier of straight-to-video offerings on the western side of the Atlantic is the assorted works of child actor and martial arts protege T.J. Roberts, of which "Tiger Heart" is generally regarded as being the most reviled and dismissed. This could be chalked up to a number of possible reasons, be it shifts in the market as the 90s grew more and more cynical, or just the fact that a 16 year old Karate Kid knockoff with a girlfriend hotter than Elizabeth Shue was circa 1984 isn't as fetching as a 12 year old kicking the butts of as many as a dozen grown men in a way reminiscent of 3 Ninjas, but either way, most see this as a soon-to-be-forgotten flop from a child-star who was getting too old for the business. Naturally, the author of this review begs to differ.

While obviously this is far from Oscar material, there is a lot of entertaining content to be found on here. The overtly campy approach; replete with mid 90s pop culture references, mild yet difficult to miss stereotypes (they cover all the bases from the Hollywood homosexual interior designer to the singing Mexican housekeeper), and a healthy dose of upper-class dysfunctional family gags (the absolute icing on the cake being the serial-monogamist sister of T.J.

Even though the acting may be "B" quality, I thought the story wasn't too bad. The martial arts action was pretty good.
