My Old Addiction

Problem Child


(out of 5)

When a happily married couple learn that they can’t have kids, they decide to adopt one instead. After visiting a local orphanage, a worn-out nun decides to give them a holy terror of a child () who has been in and out of foster homes since he was a baby. He’s the kind of kid that has made the old-fashioned types nervous about adoption in the first place, turning the happy couple’s home upside down and terrorizing the neighbours; he evens cuts girls’ braids off!  is appropriately stupefied as the father and  exasperated as the mother. Oliver has great fun tearing up the screen, but it’s a movie in a no-brainer kind of way, but successful enough to inspire the creation of a sequel.
