When Dennis? friend Lisa discovers his stash of Vogue magazines, she convinces him to vamp it up and wear a dress to school. But in class, his hilarious hijinks as ?Denise? are brought to a screeching halt when the headmaster discovers his secret and delivers the worst punishment of all?Dennis is expelled from school and therefore forbidden to play in the soccer Final Cup!
