5.0 out of 5 stars 7, the age of innocence! For Junior, the age of corruption!
The devil swoops into the pleasent lives of the Healey's (in the form of a seven year old boy named Junior that is)! All they wanted was a child to love when they adopted this cute boy, but little did they realise that from then onwards things would never be the same. Well, with a serial killer as an idol, it was obvious that Junior wasn't a typical school boy! Mr Healey...

3.0 out of 5 stars Too corny and predictable to stand the test of time.
Was probably good many years ago when it first came out on VHS but now seems dated and rather stupid - but it's worth watching if you've got nothing better to do but the humour is terribly slapstick and corny although there are a few politically in-correct scenes that probably would not get through the PC Police now.

The devil swoops into the pleasent lives of the Healey's (in the form of a seven year old boy named Junior that is)! All they wanted was a child to love when they adopted this cute boy, but little did they realise that from then onwards things would never be the same. Well, with a serial killer as an idol, it was obvious that Junior wasn't a typical school boy! Mr Healey took Junior under his wing though, in the hope of rescuing this confused child from a world without love. But things weren't looking too promising as a camping trip, and a birthday party soon displayed. Nevermind a series of fires, and the fact that Mrs Healey was more concerned if her dress matched the colour of her lipstick. Comedy genius. Problem Child is a film perfect for everyone.

Junior is hardly a model child. Mean-spirited and impudent.

He is adopted by a loving man along with his obnoxious wife named Ben and Flo Healy. Ever since Junior comes into their lives, he turns ordinary days into full-scale nightmares.

He also leaves a path of serious destruction in his wake, and is even pen pals with The Bow Tie Killer, a notorious serial killer who kidnaps his faithful correspondent, along with Flo.

It's up to Ben as he undertakes a rescue mission to get Junior back from Beck before he plans on hurting him.

For a film that's directed by Dennis Dugan, made so soon after Home Alone, and under an hour and twenty minutes, its not too bad.

It's full of clichés and troupes, and there's no prizes for guessing how the finale will conclude, but it does its job like a McDonalds would, fills you full of garbage and hits the spot for a while, until self realisation kicks in.

Ritter carries the film, and really puts his all into the doting dad, sometimes too much. The same cannot be said for the child members of the cast. Oliver aside, the rest of the kids are awful, as if they have been picked up from the street and just told to say what they do.

Set pieces are okay, it's still amusing in a guilty way, and my daughter loved it, just like I did when I was thirteen.

Great and very funny movie for kids adults alike junior keeps you entertained
From start to finish with is hilarious antics while the but loveable late John Ritter
Plays the suffering father who sees good in everything including junior.
Comedic humour with hints of heart rending moments on a journey of rehabilitating
A wayward kid who is a menace but just waning to be loved.

I really laughed when I first saw the movie some years back. The storyline is still comical and worth a try.
