Movie Info

In this direct-to-video sequel to the 1993 movie Dennis the Menace (which was based on Hank Ketcham's long-running comic strip), mischievous youngster Dennis (Justin Cooper) wants to help his eternally frazzled next-door neighbor Mr. Wilson (Don Rickles) celebrate his birthday, but Mr. Wilson is already feeling his age, and the lively Dennis only makes Wilson feel that much older -- and the arrival of Dennis's spry Grandfather (George Kennedy) doesn't help. Eager to feel younger, Mr. Wilson soon falls prey to a con man (Carrot Top) who sells him a variety of bogus youth-restoring potions. Dennis the Menace Strikes Again also features Betty White as Mrs. Wilson, and Dwier Brown and Jaqueline Steiger as Dennis's parents. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

There's a nugget of a fairly entertaining family movie in here, somewhere, but there are just too many shortcomings to make it enjoyable to viewers outside of the target age group.

Audience Reviews for Dennis the Menace Strikes Again

I didn't like this sequel, the first one was so much better, especially because of the great cast. And this one changes that cast. The story is more predictable and dull too. Overall it's just okay.

This is a sequel to the Dennis the Menace movie. The sad thing is that none of the actors from the first movie are acting in this movie, what a shame. I thought the first movie was charming and funny but this one clearly goes way over the line of being just plain silly and pointless. If you liked the first movie I wouldn't recommend you to watch this one because this one is nothing like the first one. I just don't understand why they would even bother making a sequel to this movie when they know that its going to be this bad.

Typical Dennis the menace antics. Kids will like this but really Don Rickles is the only reason to watch.
