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

During a 2014 interview on Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast, screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski revealed that the studio was reluctant to rehire them, only doing so because they wanted to shoot a sequel before Michael Oliver could noticeably grow and, as the writers of the first film, could produce a script quicker than writers new to the story and characters of the franchise. Frustrated with the criticisms of Problem Child (1990), they deliberately increased the poor taste in the sequel, intending to make a Pasolini or John Waters film for children, and went so far overboard that the first cut received an R rating from the MPAA, a secret kept until their 2014 appearance on the podcast. Dubbing over Junior's use of the term "pussy whipped" got the film a PG-13 rating on appeal but the studio was still so nervous that, at the last minute, they added the Woody Woodpecker cartoon Smoked Hams (1947) to the film's theatrical release to reassure parents that the film was suitable for children.

Goofs

When Junior sets the Crazy Dance on the highest speed, there is ample evidence that the Crazy Dance's rotational speed has increased while the centrifugal force has decreased. This is a physical impossibility. See more »

Mr. Thorn: Well, get in here and find a seat. Go ahead. Come on, come on, come on! Hustle, small fry. I'm not gonna have you holding up my class all year. now, let's move it!

Childhood classic
14 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a childhood favorite of mine. No I wasn't a problem child, but got enjoyment out of watching these kids run rampant. I just don't understand why it has gotten such a bad rating. Its not Oscar material, but it doesn't deserve a 3.3 either. I guess to each is own. There are some classic lines and stunts that are burned into my brain, make me laugh just thinking of it now. Granted I haven't seen this movie in 8 years, I still give it a 7 because it holds a special place in my movie watching experience as a kid with my sister. Line 9 Line 10 I don't understand why I have to make this 10 lines but I am wasting some space this was supposed to be a
