My daughter claims to be too old to watch the Christmas movies of her early years. This past Christmas I ordered several movies that I was hoping to enjoy with her. We actually watched this movie during the week after Christmas- I had proclaimed this day to be a lazy day for us and in our home only Christmas movies are allowed until I go back to work after Holiday break. So I put this movie on and suddenly magic was flowing in our home. After a week of complaining about nothing but Christmas movies, she wanted more! We watched two movies and several Holiday shows, we even went to see Christmas lights that evening. It was an absolutely wonderful day and it all began with this movie. My daughter has now claimed it as her favorite!!!!

5.0 out of 5 starsA Holiday Classic

I really liked this movie a lot. To me it's a classic up there with A Christmas Carol starring Alastair Sim. Although A Christmas Carol is probably the greatest Christmas movie of any era.

The story is sort of a variation of the Ebenezer Scrooge idea with Dennis' 'best friend' George Wilson providing the Scrooge character.

In this movie they go back and look at George Wilson's childhood experiences. Young Georgie was a menace himself. He took his neighbor's collection of model boats and tried to float them in the guy's bathtub with catastrophic consequences.

I found this interesting because the actor who plays George Wilson was Robert Wagner. Wagner was on board a boat with his wife Natalie Wood and actor Christopher Walken on the night Natalie went over the side and drowned.

Over the years people have insinuated that Robert Wagner murdered Natalie Wood. But I watched a TV show about this question which I think aired on the REELZ channel. It may have been an episode of 'Autopsy'. Wagner and Natalie Wood drank too much for one thing. Plus Natalie was taking various medications which may have compounded her intoxicated state of mind. She could very well have become disoriented and just fell off the boat.

In any case A Dennis The Menace Christmas is highly recommended. There's a lot about this movie I did not mention. I thought the story and concept was tremendous.

I purchased this movie; it would not play. I cannot find anywhere to receive a refund. I tried to view the video multiples times, with an error each time.

I like this version, because it's updated to more modern times, and the kid is really good. I also like the way the film builds on a checklist of things Dennis is going to do for Mr Wilson, but everything goes wrong of course. Very colorful and definitely a Xmas favorite to see every year.

This movie is bad. The first one with Christopher Lloyd was pretty good - the second one, not so much. This one. A real Christmas stinker.

As I have said in other reviews I am a Christmas freak so this this was a pretty good movie for me. As a bonus it has Dennis the Menace from the comics in it which was right up there with Peanuts as being one of my favorites. I was surprised to see that part of the movie was the A Christmas Carol story with Mr Wilson as a modern day Ebeneezer Scrooge the first time I saw it. You should get this. Merry Christmas.
