I don't care what people say, I was a kid when this came out and I still didn't like it. Just like Drop Dead Fred - I guess you have to be of a certain disposition to enjoy it, and that disposition is not me.

The little terror from Hell!

Flo (Amy Yasback) is a bitchy selfish gold digging woman who wants to have a child in order to be just like every other parent in their neighborhood and use him as a social tool but unfortunately she is unable to conceive.

Junior's so 'bad to the bone' that even the Nuns at the Orphanage are ecstatic to be rid of him.

Flo soon realizes that Junior is no angel and wants to do the same but Ben wants to be a good father and sees him as a lonely kid who is just misunderstood and l...

Kids will like it

When Junior, Ben and Flo were invited to a little girls birthday party, the girl was disrespectful to Junior by at first saying she didn't want him at her party because he was adopted. Then when she is forced to invite him she is mean to him at the party by leaving him out of all the party games and telling him he can't watch her magic show. So therefore because of the way the girl treated him he gets even by destroying her party. Another time is when Junior plays baseball on the team that Ben is coaching, the boys all make fun of him there by calling Ben, his dad a dork so Junior knocks half the other team out with the baseball bat. I feel that Junior never believed that he was loved considering the fact that his real mother abandon him as well as several other families.The only one that...
