Delightful Romp With Dennis and Friends
12 June 2015 | by jlthornb51See all my reviews

Victor DiMattia is wonderful as that little lovable moppet Dennis from funny paper fame. As Dennis is brought to life, the laughs come fast and furiously in this utterly delightful comedy romp. The neighborhood is in an uproar when the tyke finds a dinosaur bone in the yard and a notorious paleontologist is dispatched to investigate. During the resulting did in the tiny dynamo's front garden, all mayhem breaks out and chaos reigns supreme. A stellar cast is uproarious and the direction couldn't be more sharp. Especially observant satire on neighborhood politics and feuds. For anyone who loves kids, dinosaurs, and life.
