While I was writing about my favorite movies last week, I completely forgot about another favorite I had recently re-discovered:
Dennis the Menace!
I know, it's nothing like the other two movies I praised in my previous post, no refined culture or beauty, but I still love it! I watched it again for the first time in probably 10-12 years a few months ago, and I could not stop laughing throughout the entire film! It portrays so well the mind and activities of a mischievous 7-year-old boy. It's cute and hillarious, and it's so true! The tricycle trailing empty cans, the sling shot, the tree house, the denchers, the teenage baby-sitter, the bossy girlfriend, the grouchy old neighbor and his angel wife ... ahhh, I love it all! If it's been a while since you've seen it, I encourage you to watch it again, hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
While writing this post I looked up the trailor for the movie and watched it, remembering again how funny the movie is. Click to watch for yourself (but understand that the real thing is much better than it's preview).
