Goofs

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 »

Colt: You heard the flowers?
Tum Tum: What? I don't hear anything.
Rocky: That's the whole point. I didn't hear them.

Filthy dirty.
6 September 2012 | by (Surrey) – See all my reviews

I sat down of an evening to watch this film with my two children one of whom is 4 and the other is 3, i assumed that this film would be entirley suitable for them to watch, and certainly would contain less offensive scenes than Titanic: The Legend Goes On. That said, i was shocked at the many references to fisting and all male threesomes, as well as many other graphic scenes, i was also offended to see that apparently use of the N word is commonplace in this film, and the prison (NONCE) rape scene was so graphicly portrayed, I suggest that anyone who wants to keep their children in a non comatose state ssould avoid 3 Ninjas Knuckle Up at all costs.

Much love, Rob Franch.
