Consensus: Crude, rude, puerile, and pointless, Problem Child 2 represents a cynical nadir in family-marketed entertainment.

If you take the family to see this deplorable excuse for a good time at the movies, then parents deserve what the kids will learn.

I don?t know why I watched the second film when I hated the first so much? Stupid me! This film nearly made me throw up!

I often forget there was a sequel if that tells you anything.

Movies with obnoxious children are bad enough. Now try one with an obnoxious child who believes acting means SPEAKING YOUR LINES AS LOUD AS YOU CAN!!!!
