Did we miss something on diversity?

Non-stop fun

This sequel is more exciting for the kids than the first film, with more action scenes and a big of mystery added. There is a line in the opening scene when Keno insults a female by implying she should lose weight, but young kids probably won't notice, and there is a scene when the turtles are moving out of the appartment and one of them pulls down a poster of a woman in a swimsuit, giving it a kiss. Again, probably only would be comprehended by older kids. Overall a great family film for kids that are used to seeing mild ninja fighting.
