Critic Reviews of "Dennis the Menace"Entertainment WeeklyJuly 07, 2010
Its unholy mixture of peppy sadism and pious, self-righteous sentiment comes straight from Hughes' crabbed cinematic heart.VarietyJuly 22, 2008
Very young children may find the numskull, by-the-numbers gags here amusing, but teens will consider this kids' stuff and adults will be pained.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
A smooth blend of sentiment and slapstick.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Mr. Hughes and Mr. Castle try hard to re-create a kind of timeless, idealized comic-strip atmosphere, but except for the performances of Lea Thompson and Robert Stanton... nobody in the movie seems in touch with the nature of the comedy.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Those good qualities are undermined, unfortunately, by the Switchblade Sam character, who is dirty, threatening and scary.ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
Most children will get a kick out of it, although adults roped into accompanying their offspring may find themselves yearning to escape through the nearest exit.TV GuideApril 26, 2007
John Hughes' vision of Dennis is much more menacing than Ketcham's fans and parents of small children might reasonably expect.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)August 11, 2003
Someone ought to pay for this.Juicy CerebellumMarch 04, 2003
Why, oh dear lord, why?!?eFilmCritic.comJuly 25, 2002
How to turn an innocuous comic strip into an obnoxious movie.Deseret News, Salt Lake CityJanuary 01, 2000
But it's all far too flabby, with lengthy setups that seem to go on forever. Some judicious editing to tighten up the film could have made all the difference in the overall pacing.Austin ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
A movie that makes you leave the theatre with thoughts of having yourself, and your neighbors, spayed is not a good thing.
