Storyline

The neighbourhood's lively six-year-old, Dennis Mitchell, dreams of finally getting a brand-new bicycle for Christmas since he's been so good throughout the year. To make sure that his beloved next-door neighbour, Mr Wilson, has the perfect holiday, Dennis makes a long list of things one needs to make it work; however, this is easier said than done. And when a kind otherworldly guest pays a visit, sooner or later, everyone is bound to have a hearty slice of Christmas spirit. But, will Mr Wilson ever change? Written by Nick Riganas

Dennis the obsessive psycho
26 December 2009 | by MartianOctocretr5See all my reviews

Dennis is inspired by a classroom lecture about Christmas celebrations, and goes on a reckless rampage of "well-intentioned" destruction. Don't expect the exuberant Dennis who touches adult hearts with his ingenuous spirit. Expect a misguided kid whose ill-conceived crusade involves trespassing, persistent obsession, vandalism, and ignoring warnings. Aimed at three year old kids with a slapstick approach, the violent accidents are supposed to be funny and cute. They're neither.

Dennis's parents do nothing, as the kid marks a "checkoff" list of good deeds to "help" Wilson. One fiasco after another. Damage, destruction, injury. Then he tries another item on the list. Damage, destruction, injury. Then another. Damage, destruction, injury. And on and on. No jury in the world would convict Wilson if he bought some pit bull attack dogs to devour this little psycho next time he sneaks on to the property. And then blow up the Mitchells' house. Anyhow, the story then throws in a weakly contrived "Christmas Carol" sequence in for a moral tag. In spite of a hopeless script, the cast all do a pretty decent acting job. You may not notice the actors by this time though; you'll be too busy rolling your eyes.

Uses the Dennis moniker, but it's really a thinly disguised cheap rip off of Home Alone.
