Storyline

Junior's back in his first adventure since his last! Junior and Ben move to Mortville which seems like the perfect town to live in. The Healys have a nice new house--and Junior get's a cool new room! And young women have formed a line at Ben's door in order to get a piece of him (romantically). Ben does feel he should get remarried so Junior can have a mom, so while Junior adjusts to his new school which includes a little girl who's as bratty as Junior and a teenage brain-dead ignoramous bully in Junior's sixth grade class, Ben finds some dates, which Junior sends running for the hills, in the meantime Junior pulls his infamous tricks on people: blowing up barbecues, taping the bully to the chalkboard, videotaping his babysitter and her boyfriend having sex and broadcasting it for the whole neighborhood to see, same old same old. Meanwhile, Ben meets the gorgeous school nurse (after the school's satellite dish get's pushed on his head) and they, well he, believes it's love at first ...

Trivia

Big Ben says that he only sold one starter kit. If you look very closely, you'll notice he sold it to Voytek Claukinski. See more »

Goofs

During Junior's attempts to vandalize the portrait of Annie, he instantly recognizes Trixie when she shows up to torment him - but the two have no apparent way of knowing each other yet, unless you count the too brief "balloon pop" scene at the beginning of the movie. This is because of a deleted scene from Junior's first day of school, in which she puts a sign on Junior, leading to his being tormented (this scene is in the USA Network version of the film, but no DVD or home video release.)

while not an especially good movie, there are hundreds of worse movies
8 December 2005 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Although I would never give this movie a great review, I can't understand why the movie has been rated so poorly on IMDb. If I took a little time, I'm sure I could list hundreds of movies that are FAR worse. Instead, this movie should be seen as a silly little time-passer. Some, particularly kids and people who have a high tolerance for John Ritter, may actually like the movie. This CAN'T be said of horrible films like THEY SAVED HITLER'S BRAIN, ALPHAVILLE or CRACKING UP--3 infinitely worse movies that just popped into my head. PROBLEM CHILD 2 did NOT cause me to feel bored or nauseous--while this is NOT a glowing review, it certainly seems to me a good reason not to list this among the worst films ever made.
