PG Certificate


Our Score
There are those who like nothing better than a full celluloid cacophony of life's more basic bodily functions and, if you find lavatorial humour a must, you will be well served by this execrable film. Continuing where the only marginally better original film left off, with the return of John Ritter as the hapless Pa and Michael Oliver as his devilish adopted son, Problem Child 2 was universally and justifiably slated on its release. A cinematic disaster zone.


Single father Ben Healy with his obnoxious adopted son in tow moves to a new town in search of romance, but ends up with yet another wayward youngster on his hands. Comedy sequel, starring John Ritter, Amy Yasbeck, Charlene Tilton, and Laraine Newman.
