Rocky keeps switching between having braces and not having braces, even though the movie spans a total of 2-3 days. For example, when Grandpa first tells the boys to listen to the flower and when Rocky and Colt first meet Jo, Rocky does not have braces. Yet the morning after the ninjas rescue Jo's father (when Grandpa throws an egg at them) Rocky has braces. Rocky also has braces at the pizza parlor. See more »

A Delightful, kid-classic popcorn flick
6 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie isn't meant to be taken seriously and alot of people make the mistake of taking it seriously. It's just plain fun. I enjoyed it when I was a kid and I still enjoy it now. It's a classic boy movie. It was alot better than the other kids movies that came out that year. These are the kinds of movies I want my kids to see one day because they are entertaining.
