Did You Know?

Trivia

In the United Kingdom, the film was initially titled simply as "Dennis", to avoid confusion with the identically named character from the British children's comic "The Beano". The film has since been released online in the UK under its American title, in line with the DVD and online releases of Hank Ketcham's character, while the Beano character is now published as "Dennis the Menace and Gnasher".

Good film work of the comic strip
15 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

This movie is without a doubt identical to the comic strip. The characters look exactly alike, especially Dennis's parents. And I don't think anyone could have played a better Mr. Wilson than Walter Mattau. This is what makes the movie so good. Another familiar actor is Christopher Lloyd (from the "Back to the Future" trilogy and "The Pagemaster) who plays the robber. I remember when I rented this at my local grocery store, I saw the scene where the robber kidnaps Dennis and ties him up. Then Dennis tells him the only right way to tie him up so that he won't be able to get away. The robber has handcuffs and the key falls into the beans he's cooking. Dennis is forced to feed the robber beans in order to find the key. After this the robber farts in the fire. This scene was cut when shown on TNT. Watch this movie and see for yourself how wonderful it is.
