When Switchblade Sam takes an apple away from Gunther with his switchblade, the hand is obviously a fake plastic hand rather than the little boy's, as it wobbles when the switchblade makes contact with the apple. See more »
I never read the "Dennis the Menace" comics, but have watched the cartoon and the old black and white TV show. They were more interesting than this movie version, where Dennis' (Mason Gamble) have to stay with Mr. and Mrs. Wilson (Walter Matthau) and (Joan Plowright) after his parents go out of town, and tries to be helpful to Mr. Wilson, but ended up being an annoying menace to him.
This movie made me laugh at certain points, but thought the endless pranks Dennis played on Mr. Wilson went overboard, making the man hate on the kid than trying to get along with him, like the character development you see between the two characters in the TV series. You almost feel no sympathy for Dennis and feel sorry for Mr. Wilson for all he went through.
The acting was quite good, nonetheless, and you see some innocent and sincere themes in the movie, especially involving the kids. However, I think this is a film best left for the younger ones.
