Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie is a 1990 mainly martial arts slapstick comedy. The Foot Clan is a Hollywood glorification of a street gang, with a secret headquarters filled with adolescent attractions like skateboarding, games, music, girls, recreational drinking, cigarettes, and fellowship. Abundant martial arts fighting that's sometime comical and slapstick (usually when it's Turtle-vs.-villains), sometimes bone-crunching and brutal (when its human-on-human). Two dead bodies seen as the result of barely offscreen karate killings. Human characters threatened with baseball bats, swords, and clubs. One character crushed in a trash compactor. Heroes knocked out and comatose, but no blood. There's a brief glimpse of underaged girls in sexy streetwear.

Language

"Damn" is as bad as it gets.

Social Behavior

Fighting solves all problems here, of course.

Consumerism

Plugs for Domino's pizza, other movies, and TV shows (how many young viewers will get the reference to Moonlighting, though?). Of course, the Ninja Turtles were an industry in themselves, with toys, games, comics, T-shirts, practically everything that could and was sold to kids.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Recreational drinking and smoking in a lawless kids' club.
