Kids that are too much to handle are often referred to as hellions. The movie by the same name follows the Wilson family where the father is struggling single dad trying to raise his rambunctious two boys. The boys seem to get into all type of troubles and the opening scene shows how they seem to be in the wrong crowd. This movie does a good job of showing how sometimes bad things happen to good people. How a few bad decisions can put you in spiral that can put your life out of control. It also showcases the difficulty of a middle class family in making it. A small release film but a powerful story of those kids that always seem to be on the wrong place all the time. I enjoyed the movie and Juliet Lewis creates a believable role in the caring aunt. Dr Wilson Trivino
