      Movie Info

      Ben Healy (John Ritter) and his adopted son, the mischievous and destructive Junior (Michael Oliver), move to a new town for a fresh start in what happens to be "the divorcée capital of the world." Now the two face a multitude of women throwing themselves at Ben, though a new mom isn't what Junior wants. But Junior has more to worry about than his father's dates -- the little troublemaker might have met his match in Trixie Young (Ivyann Schwan), a small girl with a big chip on her shoulder.

      • Jul 01, 2012

        Sequel to Problem Child, this film, continues the so called funny exploits of Junior, unfortunately this isn't a funny film. John Ritter can't even save this film, and it's a bad sequel to a bad film. The film lacks anything really engaging to appeal to the viewer. I really didn't get into the film, and quite frankly, I found this film along with the first to be very overrated. This film is garbage that is poorly written, acted and directed. If you're looking for something really funny, you definitely won't find it here. This is filmmaking at its worst. The film has a poorly constructed plot with awful jokes that are not funny. As far as comedy is concerned, this film really doesn't work. This film makes you ask the question, how could this crap be made? This film was bad, unimpressive, boring and pointless. I hated the film, and the actors were not likeable in their parts. This was a film that never should have seen the light of day. Poorly constructed, this is one of those films that never should have been made. The first film was bad, and this is just a poor attempt at cashing on the mediocrity of the first. Avoid this film, and there are far better comedies out there. This is a poor sequel that never should have been made. If you're looking for something funny here, you'll be sadly disappointed. There are no laughs to be found here, and this is just a bad film. I hated the sequel as much as the first film. Avoid it; you'll be glad you did.

        I remember this from my childhood. I don't know if I watched it now if I would think it was any good but I remember liking the adventure of these rotten kids who sort of learned their lesson at the end.

        Not as good as the first movie, but still pretty funny.
