DENNIS THE MENACE (Theatrical Release USA 1993)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Dennis the Menace follows the cartoon strip story well and pleasantly surprises its audience with a simple, delightful story that has heart, love, and cleanness written into its very core. This is a perfect addition to the family home video collection that will stand the test of time in entertainment value. Walter Matthau is perfectly cast as the character Mr. Wilson while Mason Gamble could not have improved on his rendition of Dennis. The supporting cast shines. The story house, garden, and sidewalk scenes are perfect at every level.

Storyline

Dennis attempts to help his neighbor, Mr. Wilson.
