The rambunctious little tyke of the famous comic strip makes his way to the big screen in this very funny comedy. Mason Gamble is perfectly cast as the title character, a seemingly sweet little kid who does absolutely everything possible to annoy the hell out of his crotchety old neighbour Mr. Wilson (Walter Matthau). Most of the film’s humour comes from Matthau’s excellent performance, but there’s also lots of fun stuff from Dennis and his equally adorable friends.
