The nursery rhyme, to which Dennis falls asleep, is "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" by Eugene Field. See more »
In all of the Dennis the Menace stories, both Henry and Alice (his parents) calls both Mr. and Wrs. Wilson by their first names "George" and "Martha." However, while Henry calls Mr. Wilson "George" once when he first interacts with him, like the way it is in all the other stories, he somehow ends up calling him "Mr. Wilson" twice instead of "George" during their chat.

This movie is best compared to "Home Alone" and the better of the two.
I feel really badly that this movie is on the list of worst according to average vote. If you consider that it relies very much on slap-stick humour, which does not appeal to everyone, that might explain its poor showing.
The movie is best compared to "Home Alone." I feel it is by far the better of the two movies. Dennis is wide-eyed and innocent and the slap-stick scenarios are 'accidental' rather than contrived as in "Home Alone."
This is a movie that elderly parents can watch and be guaranteed to have a good time. It is also a movie that kids will love. If those in between can't appreciate it, that speaks a lot for their loss of innocence.
