Michael Oliver has grown up and moved on. Chapter 3 of the Problem Child trilogy features pre-teened Junior in love with a classmate that won't even notice him, but does notice three other boys who are rivals to Junior. This means war! Junior trashes the three boys, along with Big Ben, and even gives Dr. Peabody a taste of his own medicine at the dentist office where Peabody attempted to give Junior braces and as usual, Ben is oblivious to his son's madcap tomfooleries.

Did You Know?


The name Corky McClullen, the famous child actor in the movie, is a tongue-in-cheek parody of Macaulay Culkin, who was the highest paid child actor at the time this movie was being made. See more »


The producers of this movie obviously forgot that Junior threw his red polka dotted bow tie off the bridge at the very end of the first movie. It's somehow back around Junior's neck in practically every scene. See more »

Not the same without John Ritter
15 June 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Let me guess, John Ritter was not available or did not want to do the part anymore, so someone searched for another actor to play Ben Healey and William Katt was as close as it got. Sorry, but without John Ritter, the film, albeit a television film, is simply NOT the same. Also, Michael Oliver was at the point of growing up (let's see, by calculations, he was about 11 or 12 when this installment was released) and the television biggies had to hire someone close to Master Oliver's character and presence). William Katt played Ben Healey, John Ritter WAS Ben Healey. Problem Child 3 does not have much in the way of substance.

While I cannot sing the praises of the first two installments, Problem Child and Problem Child 2 will be another great way to remember Mr. Ritter's great art of comedic timing.

I miss you, Mr. Ritter. You left this world too soon.
