Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze

Continuity mistake: When the Turtles first arrive on screen behind Keno, they leap over the boy to attack the thieves. Their order from left to right when they walk up is Mikey, Leo, Donny, then Raph. The very next shot shows them in the air, and the order is now Mikey, Donny, Leo, then Raph. Donny and Leo switched places between shots. (00:03:35)

Continuity mistake: When April arrives at her apartment, she places down a folder like object, and then puts some paper and her keys on them. Next she places her purse on top of the left side of the objects. Moments later, after she goes upstairs, the Turtles come in through the window next to the stuff she sat down. Now the purse is on top of the right side of the items, and the strap is in a different position. (00:08:40 - 00:09:25)

Revealing mistake: In the junkyard, Leo and Raph grab a long pole and plough through several Foot Ninjas with it. It is painfully obvious the ninjas react to the pole before it ever hits them. Especially the guy on the ground. (00:53:20)

Question: Why did Splinter make Michelangelo do flips after he jokingly said, "All the good ones end in O" to Keno?

Answer: He's punishing Michelangelo for disrupting the session with Keno, which he used as an opportunity to diss Raph.

Question: Why is Casey Jones not in this film and where is he?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: He had moved away - he says in the third movie. We are never told as to where it was he moved to though.

Question: Does anybody know how soon this movie takes place after the first one? The foot soldiers are regrouping at the "fallback spot" and Shredder digs out of the garbage pile which would suggest anywhere from 2-24 hours later. Yet somehow April has a brand-new fully furnished apartment and it sounds like the turtles have been there for weeks by the manner in which the neighbor complains about the noise.

Answer: Shredder could have been unconscious for days before he even began to dig his way out. Also, some apartments come furnished. The neighbor is likely one of those neighbors that always has to complain about something, and exaggerate at that. It's probably been about a week or so.

That still doesn't explain the scene with the foot clan.

Answer: Maybe they went into hiding for a while before meeting at the junkyard. It's unlikely they'd be remembering where to go after a huge battle from the previous TMNT movie. It was hectic after all.
