Review Request for Nostalgia Critic.

Let me just apologize in advance in case this isn't how other TGWTG members normally suggest movies to review. Even though I'm new to the site, I've gotten the gist of the NC's general idea after watching and enjoying maybe thirty of his videos and there's a movie from my childhood that's so revolting I'm stunned he wasn't touched upon yet.

Problem Child!

This little baby is so reckless, so obnoxious and so insincere to its approach to the family film genre; it's essentially when Home Alone needs to be locked away in juvenile hall. I'm really not a Scrooge, people. I think edgier flicks can be good for the kid demographic! Just take a look at School of Rock or Akeelah and the Bee. This film right here is a downright awful influence on anyone too young to see how preposterous these stunts would be to pull off in real life. At least Macaulay Caulkin showed a spark of charm in playing Kevin McCallister and at least his character set his booby traps on two bumbling burglars who deserved to be tortured. The lead in Problem Child however can be set off if someone just looks at him the wrong way.

It’s about a 7-year old boy, Junior who was left on a door step when he was a baby and has continually been transferred from house to house because all the mischief he's caused since.  "Present" day, he's in an orphanage and still maintains an equally disastrous dose of mayhem throughout the property. He's soon adopted by the superficial, Flo who plots to use him as leverage to socialize with neighbors and the naive but ridiculously well-meaning, Ben. I kid you not, John Ritter plays the only honest, light-hearted adult in this entire stool sample. Everyone else either plays a pretentious gloater, a scheming money-hungry antagonist or a loud, unenthusiastic extra. Why? Because the film wants us to still like Junior in spite of all the crap he starts, so they make everyone else even bigger douches than him.

For two reasons I won’t spoil where this movie goes. One, it doesn’t pick up somewhat of a story until the last half hour. But everything that it’s succeeded by involves minors getting ruthlessly attacked by a baseball bat,  Junior stealing the keys to the car and mercilessly driving through traffic with Ben riding on the hood, Flo cheating on her husband with a prison escapee and Jack Warden’s bare ass. That’s right people – PG-Rated. Oh and two, like I said…it’s really the Nostalgia Critic who I want to see cover the movie for you. If the Wonka tunnel of doom lasted for 81 minutes straight, that would be Problem Child in a nutshell for you. There’s ton of audacious and crude material throughout the flick to keep your attention yet continuously make you angry with it’s hallow transitions and vulgar behavior.  Good day to you.
