I really enjoyed this film - which was truly different.
To be honest, I'm absolutely fed up with portrays of children (especially in commercials and family movies). Children are always portrayed as so cuuuuuuute and nice - actually, I'm worried about getting tooth decay because of the sweetness involved.
Problem Child is just different - the child is a complete evil brat which causes havoc during the whole movie.
Basically, the film concentrates on showing the evil side of children - and yes, people, there is a cruelty in children. Do you remember your own childhood? The bully who loved to harass weaker children? How about children treat outsiders, like fat/ugly peers? What about kids torturing animals like flies or frogs?
Sure - this comedy is far of and unrealistic, but so are cuuuuuuute and sweet family movies.
So - I quite like the movie, it's a black comedy which is a nice counterpoint to sweet & cute comedies like Home Alone.
