Critics Consensus: Not only is the movie's juvenile dialogue unbearable for adults, but the turtles' dopey and casual attitude towards physical violence makes them poor kids' role models.

I don't think my negative reaction is a case of a parent forgetting the sort of mindless entertain...

The artful grunge is gone -- and so's the edge. The whole movie is bright yet colorless

Kitschy nostalgia trip with some martial-arts violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze is the 1991 sequel to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie. There is martial arts-style violence, but none of it is graphic or gory, and there also are comedic pratfalls. Younger and more sensitive viewers might find the mutant wolf and snapping turtle scary. Parents may enjoy this kitschy movie as much as kids, since it gives them a chance to take their kids down the proverbial memory lane to show them a world when jeans were acid-washed and Vanilla Ice was actually a successful hip-hop artist instead of a B-list celebrity.
