On Christmas Eve the Turtles realize they've forgotten to get Splinter a gift. They hit the town to try to figure out what to get him, their kid fans join them and lots of singing, dancing and some rapping and shenanigans ensues.
An out of the ordinary encounter with strange alien ooze mutates four ordinary pet turtles Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello into talking, walking, fighting green machines! Together, these brothers train with the legendary sensei rat, Splinter, to master the martial art of Ninjitsu. In this truly turtle powered tale, the turtles from one dimension meet the turtles from another dimension when a teleporting mishap occurs. What the shell is going on? Together, the turtles must locate the Technodrome to fix this mess! Meanwhile, Shredder tracks down his counterpart, Ch'rell, who devises a master plan to travel back to the Prime Universe to get rid of the turtles once and for all! As worlds collide, the turtles come face to face with classic characters like Casey and April, and a slew of enemies including Krang, Hun, the Foot Soldiers, the Purple Dragons, Bebop and Rocksteady!
In the original animated series from the 1980s, the Turtles often broke the fourth wall, and talked directly to the audience. This wasn't the case however with the 2003 series. This is made reference to in this movie, as the 1980s Turtles break the fourth wall several times. Until finally, Hun gets fed up and begins to violently shake the 1980s Raphael, while asking, "Why do you keep doing that?! Who are you talking to?! There's no one there!" See more »
Yes, come to me, turtles.
What the devil are you waiting for? They're right in your crosshairs!
Destroy them already!
[the Shredder smacks them both away]
Restrain these buffoons!
[Bebop and Rocksteady grab Shredder and Krang, retraining them in cuffs]
You'll hear from my Trans-Dimensional attorneys!

Having grown up watching the old 1988 series, it was great to see the specific characters of the turtles and their villains then, in the universe of the new more serious turtles that kids watch today. The whole thing is animated well and has an interesting enough storyline.
The only thing I slightly disliked about this movie, was that the older versions of the characters, both good and bad, are depicted as being somewhat helpless in the 21st century Turtle universe. They mostly get the goofy lines and carefree attitude. However, to be fair the old show was never as serious as the newer one apparently is, and there were excellent tributes to the old show. One running gag in the movie I really enjoyed, was that the older turtles would sometimes direct their attention to the viewer, which would confuse the 21st generation characters. At some point a turtle is actually asked; "Who are you talking to? There is nobody there!"
Although there is definite goofiness and corniness present, this movie offers a nice look at the turtles through time, and is a nice way to end this saga of the turtles (as Nickelodeon is apparently planning to make the next show fully CGI).
