Over concerned parents who were upset because they somehow thought the first Ninja turtles film was not appropriate for kids ruined this film. It does all right in the end. Good plot, more great puppetry from Jim Henson Muppets, but in the producers efforts to make the film more comfortable for these over concerned parents, they took a lot of the life and energy of the film away. It could have been a great sequel had they stuck to what worked in the original and ignored these few over concerned parents. All-in-all, the film pretty good though, still better than the third film.
