I really enjoyed this film - which was truly different.
To be honest, I'm absolutely fed up with portrays of children (especially in commercials and family movies). Children are always portrayed as so cuuuuuuute and nice
I'm worried about getting tooth decay because of the sweetness involved.
Problem Child is just different - the child is a complete evil brat which causes havoc during the whole movie.
Basically, the film concentrates on showing the evil side of children - and yes, people, there is a cruelty in children. Do you remember your own childhood? The bully who loved to harass weaker children? How about children treat outsiders, like fat/ugly peers? What about kids torturing animals like flies or frogs?
Sure - this comedy is far of and unrealistic, but so are cuuuuuuute and sweet family movies.
So - I quite like the movie, it's a black comedy which is a nice counterpoint to sweet & cute comedies like Home Alone.
