Hank Ketcham's popular comic-strip kid comes to the big screen in Dennis the Menace, a delightful family comedy from writer/producer John Hughes, the creative force behind several of the most popular movies ever, including Home Alone and Uncle Buck. Young Mason Gamble (who won the title role over 20,000 hopefuls) is all-boy, all-menace, all-Dennis, right down to his slingshot and dog Ruff. As Dennis's long-suffering neighbor George Wilson, screen veteran Walter Matthau is a marvel of lovable grumpiness. And Christopher Lloyd (Back To The Future) adds a new wrinkle to Dennis's neighborhood as a villain who learns he can't match wits with a certain 5-year-old dynamo. He may be a minor, but he's a major delight. In fact, "Dennis The Menace is an irresistible treat" (Bill Diehl, ABC Radio Network).
