The big screen adaptation of Dennis the Menace was a big hit both for comics-turned-movies and the notion that there’s nothing weird about an older man whose best friend is a young serial killer.

The Addams Family‘s jump to the big screen proved to be a smash hit, leading to a sequel and several spin-offs. It also introduced the world to Christina Ricci in a breakout role. The boy who played Pugsley wasn’t quite as lucky even though he had the larger breasts at the time.
Though a recent film, Marmaduke is hailed as one of the most important films in the dog wearing sunglasses genre. What a cool pooch.
