Dennis the Menace

Factual error: When the shop vac shoots the golf ball at Mr. Wilson's gonads, it only affects him for around ten minutes. The shop vac was able to shoot a glob of paint over 50 feet in the air so the speed and impact of the golf ball would have done much more than put Mr. Wilson in extreme pain for a short while. The impact would have likely caused internal bleeding, swelling, causing him to vomit, probably a rupture, requiring him to be hospitalized. There is no way he is walking away from that, he wouldn't even be walking at all.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Dennis is in the bathtub you see some toys floating around in the tub. When it cuts from above him the toys are gone. Instead the whole tub is covered with foam. (01:28:20)

Trivia: The film was released as "Dennis" in the United Kingdom in order to avoid confusion with the British comic strip character, "Dennis the Menace."

Mrs. Martha Wilson: Weren't you a fat boy?
George Wilson: I was husky.

George Wilson: I can't stand that kid, he's a menace.

Dennis: How old is this bed?
Mrs. Martha Wilson: It belonged to my mother.
Dennis: Where's she sleeping now?
Mrs. Martha Wilson: She's been gone many years, Dennis.
Dennis: On business?
Mrs. Martha Wilson: No, she's in Heaven.
Dennis: Oh, there's an awful lot of people in Heaven, especially old people.

Answer: Because of what George said to him in the house after he was robbed. He hurt Dennis' feelings so he ran away.

Question: Why does George go to find Dennis since he hates him? Did he also expect Dennis to listen to him after he had just scolded Dennis?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Chosen answer: He doesn't hate Dennis and does not want anything to happen to him. He's just a rather crotchety old man who is annoyed by a precocious kid. He may not expect Dennis to listen to him, but he at least makes the effort to reach out as most adults would.
