"Worst" is a Strong Word!
I question the credibility of any imdb user who calls Problem Child 2 "the worst movie ever made." Have these people ever seen The Jazz Singer with Neil Diamond? Armageddon? Movies which are actually meant to be taken seriously! Very often, it seems one will deem a movie "the worst ever made" when expectations are shattered. But come on! The title says it all- Problem Child 2!! What exactly DID you expect? I have a difficult time believing that Brian Levant was expecting any type of critical acclaim, or to be taken seriously. RELAX! Deep down, we all understand that juvenile delinquency is not humorous.

Well...I shouldn't say "all." Bad kids crack me up!! I loved Problem Child 2, and recommend it to anyone watches movies to be ENTERTAINED, not just to nitpick. To involve kids with cruel pranks, toilet humor, and Jack Warden was GENIUS! Junior Healy makes Dennis the Menace look like an Olsen twin. I wouldn't want to mess with him.

Quotes

Ben Healy: Junior, we are new here in this community. Can't we, at least, attempt to fit in?
Junior: What're you getting angry at me for? I didn't do it. I just watched it.
Ben Healy: Yes, and so did the entire neighborhood.
Junior: I didn't hear any complaints.


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.


Alternate Versions

When shown on network television additional deleted scenes were added in to pad out time and edit out questionable content. The following is a list of the scenes. 1. When Junior enters the school, he asks Trixie for directions to the principal's office, she secretly puts a "kick me" sign on Junior's back. 2. Ben and Junior are seen in their living room recovering from their concussions. When Ben goes into the kitchen to try to find more ice, he asks Junior what happened to his head and Junior says a girl did it and that women are crazy. Ben tells him not all women are crazy and notices Charlene Tilton's character doing yoga exercises next to a street pole. Ben goes outside to assist,causing Junior to make a vow to save him from the single women in the neighborhood. 3. A dialog scene before Big Ben notices that Dolly and Madison are selling his own clothes has him walking out of the house talking to a client on his cell phone which shortly after, the client angrily hangs up on him. 4. Another dialog scene occurs after LaWanda leaves their house when Big Ben explains that LaWanda is nuts over Ben. Junior tries to explain to his dad that he doesn't trust her but Ben verbally warns him not to talk about it as they made an agreement that Ben would spend more time with Junior as long as he behaves. 5. Additional scenes occur during the school's open house which has Murph pigging out at the refreshment table as well as Ben trying to explain to Annie that he could help her out with any problems that she has but Annie objects and tells Ben he wouldn't be able to. 6. Junior is in Annie's office with a nasty scratch on his arm. After she treats it she gets a call that Trixie stole their neighbor's station wagon and drove it through their house. Annie agrees to talk to her about it over dinner at Pizzarific. When Junior comes home he finds a stunned Ben telling him that LaWanda is in the hospital for rabies, a continuation of a sequence earlier where he switches her blood test with a rabid dog. 7. When Ben finds Junior missing, he gets a call from Annie saying Trixie is missing too. As Ben goes downstairs he trips over a bound-and-gagged Big Ben who is tied-up on the floor.
