one line summary
I think there's a deeper level of comedy in this movie than the simple dumb jokes and pranks. Things like Junior's deadpan delivery of "these people are dicks" after meeting his new neighbours, his facial expressions and fist clenching whenever someone p***es him off, and his deadpan fake laughter when he gets his revenge. You never really know whether these kind of things are meant to convey the kid's evilness and be taken seriously within the context of the movie, or are just supposed to be completely ridiculous, which just makes them all the more hilarious, moreso than the more obvious actual jokes.

Trivia

The address of the house that Ben and Junior move into at the beginning of the movie is 911. 911 is the emergency number in America.


Quotes

Junior: This babysitter sucks!


Goofs

The type of gear-driven sprinklers in the Healys' front lawn should make no mechanical sound, but the familiar clattering noise of impact ("rain bird") heads is clearly and loudly heard.


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.
