O course there is good stuff in it. It is probably my favorite of the three (or at least a close second to the original- it really depends on my mood) due to several factors. One, the cinematography was GORGEOUS. The Japanese scenery right from the opening onward, was simply so beautiful, I fell in love instantly. All the characters were well-developed, and I really didn't mind the corny jokes, because- well, it IS TMNT (and they had more of the FW influence by then). I loved the fight scenes, and the costuming (not the turtles suits, but the rest of it) was really well done. I never found the plot or villains generic- they were different from what fans expected, sure, but time-travel is NEVER really "generic", IMHO. Also, the little hints at influencing their own future (Raph with Yoshi, Whit possibly being an ancestor of Casey, etc.) were neat. Overall, I think this one gets too much flack, and most of it is undeserved. Yes the turtle suits (mostly the heads, as someone pointed out) were not as good, but since they were mostly covered by the samurai armor I hardly ever noticed. The parts in New York were a lot of fun, too. Casey in the bar with those guards was hilarious, as was their introduction to hockey and TV.

Always my favorite part of the whole thing... Turtles in the old samurai outfits/armor. Kinda cute (and it hides those lackluster Turtle costumes).

No kidding, the painted poster illustration is amazing.

Eastman and Laird's heart was in the right place for TMNT 3, but they just didn't have the right creative crew backing them up. The idea was to not make the same mistake and rush another sequel. It was supposed to be more in the tone of the first movie with the time travel stuff.

Another tip of the hat to Tarzan Boy. Fantastic old jam.

Despite the inferior looking turtles, it's better than Secret of the Ooze in every single way.

The line "He who dings the shell must pay!" is worth it alone.

Lol, yeah. Rist is awesome. "So... what's your sign?" was also perfectly delivered.

And I loved Raph calling Donnie out on his horrible Japanese.

All the turtle banter in it is hilarious. If only there were a little less time spent on the human cast (though they too are pretty amusing!).

The jokes in the second movie are better.

No doubt. TMNT III's joke fall flat almost all the time. For the most part, it's just a bunch of pulp culture references, like "Hey, let's have them do the 'stewing' gag from Wayne's World or mention the Addams Family."
