Most Ludicrous Premise
Mafia Good -- Ninja Bad
The Mafia are a non-profit organization, only there to help. They want to keep drugs out of Shanghai, but the evil Ninjas want to sell them. It's war!

Smithee Award Winner! Worst Special Effect
Rope, Dummy, Ninja. Like "Bell, Book, Candle," But Stupider
Charlie's fight scene where the ninjas are on strings, and he uses ropes to whack dummies around. And it looks even more clunky than it sounds.

"Cutting Butter With A Chainsaw"
And It's a Long Fly Sword to Center Chest!
Fighting Oliver Hardy, our hero bats a thrown sword into him in a move that puts American Samurai to shame.

Ninjas on the Grass, Alas
"They're using special ninja Kung Fu." The ninjas transform into magical piles of lawn clippings which our hero is apparently powerless to resist. Powerless -- until he uproots a tree and uses it to fight them.

Worst Picture
The Galactica? Where?
Jack is in lust with the ninja leader's sister. In the end, he and Charlie fight with a ninja wearing a purple suit and with a high-pitched scream. They finally defeat the ninja, and yet are shocked to discover "It's a girl!" Ah, well. They spout some platitudes and head off, arm in arm, to the Battlestar Galactica theme.
