Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: 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. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Its unholy mixture of peppy sadism and pious, self-righteous sentiment comes straight from Hughes' crabbed cinematic heart. – Ty Burr, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 12, 2010

Rotten: 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. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 12, 2010

Rotten: Those good qualities are undermined, unfortunately, by the Switchblade Sam character, who is dirty, threatening and scary. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Rent first perhaps

Okay it's not as good as the classic show with Jay North or the original comic book. However it is very funny. ASo perhaps even if you love Dennis the Menace but never seen this movie before perhaps rent it first and see how much you like before you decided to buy it. Because you may or may not like as much as the comic or the classic TV show.

funny but ...

its funny but its nothing like the comic
