During a 2014 interview on Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast, screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski revealed that they initially conceived of this film as a dark adult spoof of the then-popular genre of cute kids changing adults' lives such as Baby Boom (1987), Kindergarten Cop (1990) and 3 Men and a Baby (1987). Universal insisted upon turning it into a children's film and, after a difficult shoot, were so disappointed with the results that all involved expected it to bomb. Problem Child went on to become Universal's most profitable film of the year but was so embarrassing for Alexander and Karaszewski, with Alexander crying at the first screening, that they tried to distance themselves from it in the immediate future. Over time, they would work with studio executives who were young when the film came out, grew up watching it and were impressed to be meeting the writers of Problem Child. Looking back, they still feel the film is "a mess," but take pride in being involved with one of the darkest PG children's comedies (citing the scene where Flo cheats on Ben with an escaped serial killer while he is catatonic and contemplating murdering his seven year old son as an example), adding "and it's funny."

When Ben is standing on the bridge watching the truck drive away with his wife in the back, he has the rifle in his hand. Ben and Junior turn around to walk back to the car and the rifle disappears. It seems unlikely he would have left it laying on the bridge. See more »
Problem Child was a funny and hilarious film. This was one of the best funny family films of all time. Michael Oliver did excellent playing as Junior. John Ritter and the whole cast did excellent as well. This movie is fun film for all families to watch, the problem child series is a all- time favorite.
A recommendation for all of those who love comedy family films. This one is must watch. A funny adventure film of the 90's.
Some people thought this film was terrible, but they were wrong. Problem Child is the best and beyond the funniest family film. Michael Oliver did great as Junior and shined through he was crazy LMAO yet funny throughout the series. Awesome flick!
