The movie "Problem Child 2" from 1991 is a comedy film that revolves around the character of Junior, a mischievous and unruly child who causes trouble wherever he goes. The movie is directed by Brian Levant and stars John Ritter, Michael Oliver, and Jack Warden. The story takes place a few years after the events of the first movie. Junior, who was adopted by Ben and Flo Healy (played by John Ritter and Amy Yasbeck) in the first film, is now a little older and is attending kindergarten. However, despite his parents' best efforts, Junior is still causing trouble and making life difficult for those around him.

The movie opens with Junior causing chaos at a birthday party by hitting a piñata with a shovel, causing it to fly into the air and land on a guest. The incident results in the Healy family being banned from attending any more parties in the neighborhood. As a result, Ben and Flo decide to take a family vacation to a small town called Mortville to get away from all the chaos.

However, things don't get any better in Mortville. Junior quickly becomes enemies with the town bully, a girl named Trixie (played by Ivyann Schwan), and her gang of friends. Trixie sees Junior as a threat to her authority and decides to make his life miserable. Meanwhile, Ben becomes infatuated with a beautiful woman named Lawanda Dumore (played by Laraine Newman), who also happens to be the ex-wife of the town's wealthy businessman, Big Ben (played by Jack Warden).

As the movie progresses, Junior continues to cause trouble wherever he goes. He starts a fire in his kindergarten class, disrupts a school play, and causes chaos at a petting zoo. Meanwhile, Ben's relationship with Lawanda leads to confrontations with Big Ben, who becomes jealous of their relationship. The situation escalates, and Ben finds himself in a dangerous situation, with Junior and Flo trying to rescue him.

Despite all the chaos and trouble that Junior causes, the movie is ultimately about the love and bond between a family. Ben and Flo love Junior unconditionally and are determined to do whatever it takes to keep him safe and happy. Despite all the difficulties they face, they continue to stick together and support each other.

The movie features several enjoyable and humorous moments throughout, with John Ritter delivering several hilarious performances as Ben Healy. Michael Oliver does an excellent job in reprising his role as Junior, and his mischievous and adorable nature makes it hard not to root for him. The supporting cast, including Ivyann Schwan as Trixie and Jack Warden as Big Ben, also delivers excellent performances.

In conclusion, "Problem Child 2" is a fun and enjoyable comedy movie that will have you laughing out loud.
