Honest Trailers Destroys Any Fond Memories Of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze’

Subscribe to UPROXX

Before the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were being molded after Bill Murray, they were being molded after a pale imitation of a successful first movie, with everything fun stripped away because of a hurried production and the humoring of special interest groups who didn’t like weapons, fighting, or anything ninja-related. That’s right, Screen Junkies just ninja’d an Honest Trailer onto YouTube, and this time they’re taking on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze. Ahem, I mean “ooooooze“.

Check it out above to relive the magic and the mystery of villains who stand around and do nothing, “ninja” turtles who can’t hide or sneak around, an April O’Neil imposter who asked for less money, and protagonists who wouldn’t pull out their weapons even when caught in a net made of very cutable rope. Oh, and a dance break with Vanilla Ice. “No, Ninja, No, Ninja, No!”

And be sure to check back tomorrow for a little something special about this ooze. Wait. That didn’t come out right…
