A blond, Americanesque baby in a basket washes ashore "Somewhere In Asia" where he is adopted by two loving parents. Dad runs an oriental take-out place--ubiquitous. Mom makes and rents instructional sex tapes--unique. Little blond Ikki grows into an unpopular but well-rounded adolescent, helping Dad with deliveries and dreaming, in anime, of becoming a Dancing Ninja.
Ikki seeks training from a martial artist who looks as Oriental as Emeril Lagasse, and sports a chest tattoo that looks like half of a butterfly, dragging a ribbon. When he is turned away at Sabu's dojo, Ikki finds an imaginary friend in an unplugged dance video game and spends two years learning to dance so well that only about half of the dance sequences require him to be shot from the neck up.
Along the way, Ikki learns to harness his chi, wins over Sabu, makes a few friends, throws a few octopi, gets the girl, finds his real Dad, gets control of his hair gel, and pisses off David Hasselhoff.
Bonus: The Hoff covers B. J. Thomas' 1970 hit "Hooked On A Feeling" over a montage of wardrobe changes that would embarrass a Ken doll. (Dude can sing! He can't wax, or diet, or choose material. But he can sing!)
Not. What. I. Got.
Honestly - I loved this movie. It was hilarious. I have to respect David for playing such a silly character. And Lucas Grabeel did a wonderful job with the comedy - I'm actually going to see if he has other hidden gems.
In an age that needs bathroom jokes to consider itself "comedy" - this was highly refreshing. Ok, there was the naive sex jokes, but they were very lowkey.
I mean, you can't overthink the movie. It's a lot of jokes that are funny but don't really make you laugh, and the characters are heartwarming, but not enough for you to care about them. In another dimension it would be Mystery Science Theater's wet dream.
I'm glad I watched it, probably won't watch it again, though I think it might be amusing to watch it with a group of friends in the right mood.

The saving grace of this movie is seeing "The Hoff " sing and do basic movie fighting in interesting hair and costumes.Published 9 months ago by Bronson Clark
If you are looking for something that is just funny and off the wall, then this is the movie to watch. It is not a high budget film, just a fun lighthearted comedy.Published on May 22, 2014 by Dan Hangen

I thought it would at least be fun, but I couldn't even finish it. Maybe if you REEEEEAAALLLLY liked HSM it has redeeming qualities, but this one wasn't for me :)Published on December 7, 2013 by Mark Hunter
