Dennis is a UK VHS release by Warner Home Video on 1st August 1994.

Description[]

When six year-old Dennis Mitchell comes home for the summer, mayhem is sure to follow and next-door "Mr Wilson" is bound to bear the brunt of it all!

Walter Matthau stars as the long-suffering, cantankerous George Wilson with Joan Plowright alongside him as his wife, Martha. The star cast continues with Christopher Lloyd from the "Back to the Future" series, making a fabulous villain Switchblade Sam, who steals the Wilson's valuables in what appears to be an easy heist. However, he hadn't counted on the one thing which could bring his downfall: a boy with insatiable curiosity, inexhaustible energy and boundless good humour: our hero played by Mason Gamble, Dennis!

John Hughes, the man behind "Home Alone" and "Uncle Buck" brings this beloved comic strip character to life, in one of the funniest and most entertaining family films you'll see.
