STAY AWAY!!!!
6 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

You're better off with the 1993's Dennis the Menace. This one was so bad, it make Dennis the Menace: Strikes Back and the 1993 version look like American movie classics. PLEASE AVOID THIS MOVIE AT ALL COSTS!!!! There's much better movies out there than this stupid pile of bones.

I give it No Stars
