Mutant Mayhem’ Premiere Streaming
What is more powerful than Turtle Power? Watching movies at home on streaming, obviously.
And now, those two things have come together, with this summer’s vibrant hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem making its way to streaming via Paramount+. You can watch the movie there right now. Come on. Go for it.
The latest remake of the enduringly obscure children’s franchise was produced, co-written, and co-starred Seth Rogen, and reimagines the Turtles as a quartet of quirky brothers who want nothing as well as being accepted and going to high school like anyone else. a teenager who is not a mutant mutant turtle. They decide that the best way to do that is to become heroes, who will face another mutant named Superfly, voiced by Ice Cube.

This latest one Ninja turtles film grossed over $110 million in US theaters, and did well enough to get Paramount to begin work on a sequel and a so-called spinoff animated television series Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
We were big fans of the movie here at ScreenCrush as well. In my review, I wrote…
While Mutant Mayhem obviously came from the same commercial movement, it adds a lot of new wrinkles to the old Ninja Turtles formula. With screeching animation and jokes about milking turtles for their precious bodily fluids, it doesn’t feel like something straight out of a Hollywood IP factory, and the surreal visuals are downright psychedelic at times. The whole package is so trippy and weird. You know, if I didn’t know any better, I’d swear by the people who did this – Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, right? – he took a lot of drugs.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem now available on Paramount+. It is best to enjoy pizza with very strange toppings on it.
