Midway through the adopted-brat-from-hell comedy Problem Child, there's a scene in which the vicious little tyke (Michael Oliver) wreaks havoc at a baseball game, running around the bases and bopping each of the opposing players with his bat. It's a satisfying fantasy for those of us who spent our Little League years standing at second base praying we wouldn't bobble the next grounder. The rest of the kid's tricks are too unimaginative to be much fun — though with jokes this lame you won't have to worry as much about your children getting any bad ideas. D-
