During the end credits, there is an additional scene with Dennis at Alice's workplace, who was forced to take him with her to work following the aftermath of Mr. Wilson getting hit in the forehead with a burnt marshmallow, and tries to help Andrea make copies of documents, only to wind up getting her face onto the copying scanner when her necklace gets caught in the machine and Dennis runs off in fear and alerting many of the other office workers.

This film is a great little family comedy. I loved it as a kid, and it still holds up today. Walter Matthau is delightfully miserable, Mason Gamble is chasing, and Christopher Lloyd is unrecognisably fiendish.
Get the popcorn, sit the kids down, and enjoy...whilst remembering to tell the kids not to try ANYTHING Dennis does!
