One of the best comedic films of the 90s. I don't understand why so many people thought it was so terrible. Yes, i know Junior could be a little annoying sometimes, but that is his role and he will be greatly remembered for it. As for the rest of the cast, i thought everyone did a great job, especially Jack Warden. He may have been the funniest character in the movie. anyways, you have to watch the movie repeatedly to understand and comprehend its hilarious outcome.
Another Childhood Favorite!!! (by Pumpkin_Man)
Ever since I saw this on TV when I was little, I've loved this movie! I love the the plot and direction of this movie and thought everyone was cast perfectly. Junior is a mean-spirited kid that nobody wants. When Ben and Florence Healy consider adopting a kid, Mr. Peabody persuades them to take Junior. Soon after, havoc ensues. My favorite scene is at the birthday party when he throws presents in the pool, puts exploding candles on the cake, and puts pickles in the piñata. Everybody in Ben Healy's life starts hating Junior, but Ben doesn't want to give up, until Junior drives the <more>
family car into Ben's dad's store. When a psychopathic killer escapes, he kidnaps Junior and Florence, but at first, Ben doesn't care, until he finds out that the entire time, Junior liked him. Ben saves Junior and tries to stop the bad guy! I highly recommend PROBLEM CHILD!!!
The Problem child movies are very funny!John Ritter,Amy Yasbec,and Jack Warden,and Michael Richards are all good in the film!It is always sad to to see the great late wrestler Kerry Von Erich.The film has some of the more hilarious scenes ever!.If you like comedy film with bratty kids then check this out!

Are you guys kidding me? anyone that says this movie is bad is wrong, I happen to find this as one of my favorite movies I think there is a strong moral message in it, not only that but this movie is easily one of the funniest movies I have ever seen I mean maybe it does have bad acting I can't tell, but it still has a good message in it and there are some really funny parts in it. This and bad Santa are two of my favorite movies they both have good morals and both I can watch over and over just because of the hilarious scenes in them. In my opinion you should see this movie and if you <more>
didn't like it at least you will have gave it a try and if you don't like this kind of humor then oh well.
Problem Child is one hell of a funny movie. It is a low budget movie that did not do so well in the box office. In some ways, the movie is annoying because if a Kid acts like that, he should he disciplined in a Major Way. That does not stop the movie from being ever so funny. Packed with lots of fun and jokes, This movie does Entertain. There are Three Installments of Problem Child. The First is the Best, The Second has the same actors but is a disaster. The third was the worst with different actors playing the parts. Out of all the actors, Jack Warden was very funny as the typical American <more>
Granddad. Overall, this is a worth watching movie, and may appeal to a hand full of audience.
Excellent comedy about an out of control 8-year-old terror from Hell! (by Catherine_Grace_Zeh)
PROBLEM CHILD, in my opinion, is an excellent comedy about an out of control 8-year-old terror from Hell! If you ask me, Flo Amy Yasbeck and Lucy Colby Kline were absolute snobs! On the other hand, everything that Junior Michael Oliver did was absolutely hilarious. Mr. Peabody Gilbert Gottfried was also hilarious, albeit somewhat annoying. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that everyone was ideally cast, the direction was flawless, the production design was spectacular, and the performances were top-grade. Now, in conclusion, I highly recommend this excellent comedy about an <more>
out of control 8-year-old terror from Hell. I guarantee you you'll enjoy it.
Dennis The Menance and Bart Simpsom rolled into one! (by GOWBTW)
"Problem Child" is definitely one of the most hilarious movies I have ever seen. Here you have Junior Michael Oliver , a scheming trouble-maker who loves mischief, and can't stand everyone around him. Been a problem since he was born. The orphanage won't have him different parents give him back, he is terrible! Only "Little Ben" Healy John Ritter, 1948-2003 takes the time and heart to love him. His wife Flo Amy Yasbeck, Ritter's real-life wife totally resents him. At a young girls party, he really crashed it. At a baseball game, he was a threat to his team <more>
and the opponents. El ca bonging, and clubbing the opponents, and he slides on home with the bat at the catcher. Then he meets his idol, Martin Beck Micheal Richards who didn't live up to Junior's while. So when he shot "Little Ben", Junior open up to him. So he loses his wife, and gained a son, How does that make you feel. A great movie, very funny. A bit crude in some parts but it's handles out well. 3 out of 5 stars!
Awwww... Who wouldn't love that kid? (by noimosyni)
I don't really understand why this movie only got a 4 something review, or was it three? I'm not really sure, but really this movie? Gosh, I remember this when I was small. Every time it would be previewed in the TV, I would sit down and wait for a laugh fest. I remember laughs, wheezes and me holding my stomach while watching this movie. I don't care if it's real or not but then again, exaggerations are okay if they give you a good time. Right? Or am I right?Also, the other thing that I really liked was that this child Jr. was a genius or not because it's purely <more>
fictitious . I love the schemes and the fact that he handled all of it with a maniacal and evil grin was even better. Gosh!I love this kid! And he looks like a little angel with those freckles on his nose! Awwww... Who wouldn't love that kid?
