Not to be confused with the character Dennis The Menace, from British comic The Beano, this is a big screen version the American cartoon series "Dennis" about a mischievious 5-year-old brat whose shenanigans drive his docile, elderly neighbour George Wilson to the brink of insanity.
It has some funny moments but is overall just another movie in the whole young kids vs moronic adults chain following the success of Home Alone, Problem Child and other such films which were out in their droves during the early 90's.
