Nice night to be born. Apparently my birth is not considered a blessed event; that's me in the basket, and that's my mother carrying me.

I'm not a fan of comedies but any movie that starts with a scene of school children writing to their penpals with the following dialogue :
" Dear Queen Elizabeth . How is England ? "
" Dear Bishop Tutu . How are you ? "
" Dear bow tie serial killer . I have all your newspaper articles "
has something going for it , and the best thing about PROBLEM CHILD is the amount of very bad taste comedy . It's almost like a Farrelly Brothers comedy ( THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY , KINGPIN etc ) in both feel and execution . Okay so it's a goofy movie , okay some of the acting is poor , and okay you can see some of the jokes coming a mile away ( Oh a bear costume . I bet a real bear will turn up within the next five minutes ) but I watched it on TV one wet Sunday afternoon and had a few laughs
I can't help thinking that the poor response from many forum members might be down to the fact that this was marketed as a " family comedy " . I can just imagine many parents renting this from the video store , taking it home and watching it with their cherubs only to find it features attacks on religion and family pets . I reckon Joe Stalin would have enjoyed this movie as much as I did
