Trivia

Starting in this film, Paige Turco takes over the role of April O'Neil. Turco bares more a resemblance to the character as she's seen in the original Mirage comic book. The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) actress, Judith Hoag, was never even approached about the idea of reprising her role from the first movie, and she blames it on her own personal complaining - particularly about the six-day schedule and the amount of violence in the movie.

Less gritty than the first, but more fun
10 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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!
