Ninja Turtles

The ’90s were a great, great time for movies. It’s a shame that ’80s babies didn’t see any of them.

OK, that’s not really true. If you were born in the ’80s, we’re pretty sure you saw all-time great movies like The Lion King, Homeward Bound and Toy Story.

However, the majority of movies from the ’90s that were meant for kids were truly terrible. (Have you tried watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles recently?)

The funniest part is that, as children, we couldn’t tell the difference between bad and good cinema. Back in the day, we didn’t pay attention to plot development or acting.


We liked bright colors and action. So it wasn’t uncommon for a child’s favorite movie to be 3 Ninjas, then Aladdin.

Since it’s #ThrowbackThursday time (yay!) let’s have a look back at 25 movies that we loved as kids that actually absolutely suck.
