Dennis the Menace

Plot hole: During the bedroom scene, when Dennis shoves a flashlight into Mr. Wilson's mouth and nose, Wilson opens his eyes. It would be impossible for Dennis not to notice his open eyes, and realise he's faking being asleep, especially when he puts the light into Wilson's nose.

Plot hole: Towards the end of the movie we see Mr. Wilson peek out from his front porch, surprised to see Dennis biking back home with his wagon carrying Switchblade Sam, tied-up and partly unconscious. Now unless Dennis must have some hidden superpowers or somehow knew how to tweak the laws of physics there is no way that an eight-year-old kid could carry an adult of that size to his wagon let alone easily bike home with Switchblade Sam's weight. Plus being an experienced criminal like Switchboard Sam he may have offered some resistance in being caught doing so much less submit to a mere kid. (01:50:00)

Continuity mistake: When Dennis is in Mr. WIlson's bathroom after his bath, pouring mouthwash in his nose spray, Dennis has toothpaste all over his chin and mouth. When they show Dennis from the side, it is gone. From the front it is there again. This happens several times in the shot.
