PG | | Comedy, Family
A young boy is just short of a monster. He is adopted by a loving man and his wacky wife. The laughs keep coming as the boy pushes them to the limits.
Jack Warden agreed to be in the film after Dennis Dugan offered him half his net profits (a percentage negotiated beforehand of the net profit to a movie). Warden was so touched by the gesture that he agreed to take the role, but refused to take any of Dugan's potential earnings.
Little Ben Healy:
Nobody messes with The Healys and gets away c'mon.
One scene Junior goes to the bathroom on the campfire and puts it out. The very next scene the fire is lit.
The version that airs on the Hub network is based on the USA Network version that has the "bonus footage" added in the movie, but makes several additional edits. Amongst these are: Big Ben's reference to the "Japs" and the "Hirohito Corporation" are removed, and Big Ben's comments to Little Ben about artificial insemination are edited somewhat (though the line about taking his sperm to someone who knows what to do with it is still intact).
