Trivia

This film was shot before 3 Ninjas Kick Back (1994), despite not being released until later. See more »

Goofs

In addition to the braces goof mentioned above, you can also tell that the movie must have had a lapse in shooting time because Rocky's voice is much deeper in certain scenes. This is most apparent during Rocky and Tum Tum's tango scene where Michael Treanor's voice is drastically lower than it is in the rest of the movie, which probably means this scene was added in after the original shooting.

Filthy dirty.
6 September 2012 | by 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.
