Wilsonbut these are few and far between. This is no real surprise since, about five minutes into the film, we learn that Wilson has been planning for this moment for 40 years. Later, while getting paint from a high shelf in the garage, Dennis tries to grab his slingshot, which was taken away from him by Henry, and accidentally spills the paint on the floor.

Matthau brings lovable grouchiness and wince-inducing pratfalls to the role, setting the stage for Dennis and Mr. There are some inspiring moments like The Omen —like music and shot when Dennis comes to see Mr. Mitchell a miscast Lea Thompson is now a working mom, which appears to be a plot device to get Dennis into the Wilson house and an excuse to insert some gratuitous cheap shots at working women, especially those without kids.
