Trivia

The theatrical trailer as well as several TV spots for this film included the popular "We should run. We should hide. We should kick their butts!" line used in the first movie. However, in the actual film, only the final part is used by Tum Tum who rephrases it as "Let's kick their butts!" See more »

Goofs

When the boys are ordering the tickets to Tokyo using their grandpas recording from the answering machine, Colt plays the part where Mori Shintaro screams. The problem is after the lady asks if the price is OK Colt makes the tape say "yeah everything" , but the problem is their grandpa said "yeah they took everything" so there would be no way Colt could get past those two words that fast without listening to make sure he hit the right words.

Quotes

Umpire: [Angry and spits after witnessing a fight break out during the baseball match] This is the most disgraceful display i have ever seen in baseball history. Your supposed to be learning how to be cisterns and sport mans NOT Hooligans. I am suspending this game for one week to give you a chance to cool down. The game starts over next Sunday, that is if by then and if you decide to GROW UP.

The Single Most Important Work in the History of Man
31 July 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

There is so much I could say about this movie. The cinematography, the music, the allegory...bittersweet indeed. The child actors...so young, so full of talent. Tum tum's impassioned cry of "scccraamble!!!" brings tears to my eyes and joy to my soul. There are no words. But maybe there are: Breathtaking. Original. Quality. Innovation. Family. Love. Peace. And violence. But beyond it all, the ultimate moment of this film arrives not near the conclusion, but in the subtle beauty and grace of Nurse Shibuya (played by the irreplaceable Glen Chin, in the finest role of his illustrious career). See here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GusQxS9pRTw

I can say no more without dulling the gleam of this artistic vision.

Fight on, brave ninjas, fight on.
