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.

3 Ninjas Knuckle Up
14 July 2013 | by (C-World) – See all my reviews

Another awesome comeback into the 3 Ninjas series. "3 Ninjas Knuckle Up"

3 Ninjas Knuckle Up was also a classic and really good kids family film. A kick-butt action-comedy-family film. The boys, Michael Treanor, Max Elliott Slade, and Chad Power were so awesome! 3 Ninjas Knuckle Up was funny and full of true Martial Arts. Victor Wong who starred as Grandpa he did great and connected very well with the boys. Sang-OK Shin who directed film. Awesome job! Alex S. Kim thanks for writing such a amazing kick-butt story. 3 Ninjas Knuckle Up rock!

We all remember watching this one too as a kid and watching it via Television whenever it showed. 3 Ninjas Knuckle Up was always a joy to watch because truly it rocks and kicks-butt. There's nothing negative about the film itself. I recommend it for everyone and you should check it out if you haven't today. If you loved the first one you'll love this one 3 Ninjas Knuckle Up will rock your world! these boys are awesome.
