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

Based on the landmarks the Healys pass on their road trip, it can be assumed that they're moving from California (the first landmark is the Randy's Donuts in Inglewood, CA) to Florida (the final landmark they pass is the Booby Trap club in Orlando, FL). 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.)

True, this movie is not that great, but personally I have seen worse movies
22 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I sort of liked the first Problem Child, it had problems but it had its moments as well. This sequel is bad admittedly, but it isn't the very worst sequel out there(Home Alone 4 gets that dishonour) and it certainly isn't as bad as Problem Child 3:Junior in Love, which is Bottom 100 material. Starting with the good things, some parts are funny, like the food fight and the vomiting on the roller coaster and Gilbert Gottfried is often hilarious here as is Jack Warden. However, where the film comes down is an awful script, leaden direction, rushed camera work an even more obnoxious performance than ever before from Michael Oliver as the dysfunctional kid and apart from one or two exceptions the jokes do not work. In terms of performances, John Ritter is lost at sea here not surprised seeing as how little he was given to do, and Amy Yasbeck's performance is pretty much a copyright of her performance in the first film. Overall, bad but not abysmal. 3/10 Bethany Cox
