The glass that Professor Perry uses to mix the mutagen antidote has a picture of Bart Simpson from The Simpsons (1989) on it. One of Bart's trademark catchphrases is "Cowabunga", like that of the Turtles'. See more »

Goofs

During the junkyard scene, just before Donatello is thrown, you can clearly see that Leonardo's katanas are in their sheaths. After he is thrown the shot cuts back to Leonardo fighting and his katanas are no longer there. See more »

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!
