problem child

Families can talk about the differences between cartoon violence and real violence. In a live action movie like this one, how do the filmmakers indicate that nothing is for real? Punishment doesn't seem to make a difference in Junior's behavior. Are there consequences for your actions? Do you ever talk with your family about how they determine those consequences? Ben was victimized by his father, his wife, and even his friends before he even met Junior. Did his relationship with his new son help him make any changes? How realistic is his character?

Not worth watching.

This movie is AWFUL. As stated in the summary, the child is bad just for the sake of being bad. The language in the movie is ATROCIOUS. My daughter is 9 and halfway through said she didn't want to watch anymore because the kid is just bad. There is NO content appropriate for kids under 12. Don't watch this unless you want to teach your kids some new foul words.
