One of the funniest movies of all time! (by Movie Nuttball)
Dennis the Menace is a great hilarious movie. The music composed by the legendary Jerry Goldsmith is perfect especially for the scene when we fist see Christopher Lloyd. The cast is great and it was great seeing Llyod and Lea Thomson in the same film again ala the Back to the Future trilogy.Walter Matthau,Joan Plowright,and Paul Winfield were very good and I think it was a fine choice of putting Mason Gamble for the menace job as Dennis. The film has non-stop laughs especially the scenes with Matthau and I just love the scene when the end credits are playing.If you want to laugh look no <more>
you know how switchblade sam rolls into town? on steel rails, leapin' off the locomotive at full speed and dustin' himself off. then he scopes out the town and says, "i bet they don't even lock their doors." this is the happiest man in the world. he walks into people's houses, eats their food, jacks all their cash and jewelry... shoot, he even steals candy from a baby. cops try to give him guff, but he don't sweat it. he'll cook up a whole pot of beans, even when he isn't hungry. he eats his apples off of his switchblade. he got some tight threads. he <more>
probably gets laid all the time too, but they ain't showin' that in this movie. he drinks his whiskey straight out the flask. he kidnaps kids and holds them for ransom. mr. Wilson is kinda cool too.
I saw this film when it first came out and I loved it then and still do so I'm pleased to have finally bought it on DVD. Just watch it!!! I found it funny throughout and the end of the film where the villain played beautifully suffered at the unknowing hands of Dennis is a joy to watch. Just watch it!!!
My 4th grade class gives this film 20 thumbs up! (by mdm-11)
I remember growing up with "Dennis The Menace" TV re-runs. I loved the black & white sit-com, but this 1990s movie version almost tops it! That lovable sling-shot-toting kid with the cowlick is an unlikely "menace" to retired postman Mr. Wilson, who wants nothing more than to be left alone. Dennis Mitchell always seeks out Mr. Wilson's company, but each time disaster strikes, usually causing harm to property or Mr. Wilson sometimes both . Mrs. Wilson adores Dennis and often volunteers to watch him when the Mitchell's list of possible baby-sitters is <more>
exhausted.There is a sub-plot with a "bad guy" who, of course gets "fixed" by our hero. This is the perfect family movie. It's funny, sweet and makes you feel good when it's through. I showed this video to my 4th grade class as a reward . I never saw a group of 10 year-olds enjoy a film like they did this one. Enjoy this wonderful film again and again, it's a gem!
A wonderful family comedy that can be enjoyed again and again! (by LardLad3545)
This movie is a real treasure. Walter Matheau is excellent as Mr. Wilson and Mason Gamble brings the cartoon Dennis to life for us! Christopher Loyld does a wonderful job of being a menacing Switchblade Sam and is able to be vicious without being truly scary - which is helpful as this is primarily a family movie. His part is important because it shows how even a really mean person which Mr. Wilson's character is not can be foiled by the innocent childhood antics of Dennis the Menace.The real joy of this film, beyond the many sight gags and the smart dialog, is how the movie doesn't <more>
seem to age with time.. I saw it at the theater in the early 90's and it still seems fresh 13 years later. Also, it is one of those rare movies that can be watched over and over and still surprisingly be interesting, enjoyable and brightly funny!
Giving it a 9 to bump it up a bit. It is a 7,5 otherwise. I really like this film, when i was a kid i loved it. But even now when i am old i def can c the charm in this movie. It has great humor , nice environments , small town genre that i like. It makes you feel like you want to live there.Just a nice enjoyable film.
Great movie for kids of any age (by The_unemployed_cynic)
How can this movie get such a low rating? It is really well made, has some very funny moments and the casting is excellent. Dennis is cute as a button and totally believable, his parents are.. well, just perfect and mr Wilson is the best mr Wilson you could wish for. The same applies to many of the smaller roles. And then there is Christopher Lloyd in one of his best performances ever. I loved this movie, both the first and second time I saw it. It deserves at least an 8, so I gave it a 9 to boost the score.
This movie is best compared to "Home Alone" and the better of the two. (by JerBet)
I feel really badly that this movie is on the list of worst according to average vote. If you consider that it relies very much on slap-stick humour, which does not appeal to everyone, that might explain its poor showing.The movie is best compared to "Home Alone." I feel it is by far the better of the two movies. Dennis is wide-eyed and innocent and the slap-stick scenarios are 'accidental' rather than contrived as in "Home Alone."This is a movie that elderly parents can watch and be guaranteed to have a good time. It is also a movie that kids will love. If those <more>
in between can't appreciate it, that speaks a lot for their loss of innocence.
For whatever reason, this film has been somewhat underrated since its release in the early nineties. I suspect that much of the apathy stems from the fact that audiences at that time had reached the saturation point with "Little kid outsmarting the bad guy" slapstick Home Alone 1 and 2, The Three Ninjas series, etc . Still, this version of Dennis Mitchell's escapades is well worth a look, and is certainly holds its own against other John Hughes films with a similar ok, "identical" premise.The highlights of the film include winning performances by Mason Gamble and <more>
Walter Mathau as Dennis and Mr. Wilson, respectively. Mason Gamble was one of the more talented child actors to grace the screen at the time- if you're able to see more than a 'cute kid' and listen to his inflection, he's actually pretty funny. Mathau, of course, is Mathau and brilliant. It's somewhat annoying that the film decided to go 'PC' in portraying Alice Mitchell as a career woman, but other than that, the casting of the parents and Martha Wilson was perfect. The musical score was also excellent- whimsical, nostalgic, without coming across as cloying.There were only two problems with the film, but they were big ones. First, the director did not adequately develop Wilson's friendship with Dennis, which makes the end scenes seem forced and trite. The only recollection I have of Wilson even speaking civilly to Dennis before he 'ran away' was when he briefly explained why he kept his coins in a safe. Other than that, their relationship was nothing but snarls, grumbling, and apologies. Secondly, the introduction of Switchblad Sam was a typical and oh so tired Hughes device, although it was surprisingly violent compared to his other films watching a cute little five year old force feed and then accidentally set a villain on fire was slightly disturbing, to say the least . Christopher Lloyd's performance was over-the-top and distracting, taking away from what could have become a semi-classic children's film.
