Problem Child is one of those movies that you feel bad about liking. I first saw this movie when I was 8 and thought it was hilarious back then, and every now and then I catch it on TV and it still cracks me up. The beauty of this movie is that it wallows in it's wretchedness and awfulness. The humor is so low-brow and tasteless. I have absolutely no respect for this movie. But it's funny! There are so many classic, hilarious scenes that have been ripped off by other films. Michael Oliver was great in the first two Problem Child flicks, I wonder what ever became of him. He is truly the center of this film. He's not a cute kid -- He's ugly. He's foul mouthed and he's a brat (did I mention he hates clowns?). You can't help but watch this movie with a grin on your face. Some movies can't be held up to such high-standards. You cannot compare a Big-Mac to Filet-Mignon. They are both tasty, but they are of two different worlds. Just enjoy Problem Child for what it is: a good way to kill a Sunday afternoon.
P.S. Does anyone else see some odd resemblances between Junior and Chucky the killer doll from the Child's Play flicks?
