Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
The turtles find out where the Ooze, the substance which made them mutate, came from. Unfortunately Shredder learns about it too, and uses it to enhance himself. So the turtles have to prove again who's the better ninja fighter. Written by

When the script called for Leonardo to perform a back handspring, Mark Caso wanted to do it but director Michael Pressman was unwilling to risk an injury. Pressman wanted Caso's stuntman to perform the feat, but the stuntman didn't know how. A search was initiated for an outside party to do the stunt, but Caso - a national gymnastics competitor - eventually won out and performed it himself. Caso later said of the matter: "I was like, well, I want to do my own thing. You are going to go out there and look for someone worse than me. You cannot find somebody to do a better back-handspring than I can. I want Leonardo to have the best one." See more »
Before the final fight with Tokka and Rahzar, when Donatello and Professor Perry deduce that they need CO2 in order to destabilize the mutation, they find a fire extinguisher. When they grab it, you can see from the pressure gauge that it is in fact not a CO2 extinguisher. This would make sense because CO2 extinguishers are primarily used for closed in areas or electrical equipment. See more »
[after Leo starts conversation about the Foot]
We kicked their butts. They're all in jail. Besides, we took out the Shredder. So what's everyone so worried about, anyway?
No, Splinter took out the Shredder!
They're both right.
Yeah, yeah. I was there, Leo, remember? Ol' Shred did a swan dive, with a half gainer, right into the back of a garbage truck! AAAAAHHHH!

Well, this second film was more kid-oriented and played more for laughs, but I still got a kick out of it. Paige Turco made a better April than Judith Hoag (and what a cool apartment April has!) and Ernie Reyes Jr. (whatever happened to him?) is a lot of fun to watch too. What WAS the secret of the ooze? I haven't seen the film in years!
Re: Vanilla Ice. Yes, his very presence is laughable, let alone his "performance". But in his defense, he's less embarrassing here than in 1991's other blockbuster smash hit, Cool As Ice!
