Editorial Reviews

Dana Carvey (Wayne's World), Valeria Golino (Rain Man), James Earl Jones (A FamilyThing), Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects) and Michael Murphy (Magnolia) star in "the brightest comedy to grace the big screen in years" (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)! Private Investigator M. L. Pogue (Carvey) has developed a rare case of amnesia that causes him to forget all the details of his life each time he falls asleep. But that's not his only problem. He's also the key witness in the murder trial of a dangerous mobsterand he can't remember the guy, the crime or even his own name! Pogue attempts to put the pieces of the caseand his lifeback in order with the help of a tape recorder and an eye-patched pooch. But with his deadline to testify on the case fast approaching and bad guys coming at him from every angle, it's definitely a situation that anyone would want to forget!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant June 6, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I loved this movie, I think its genius. It has depth, detail, atmosphere, and is hilarious with clean humor (which is kind of refreshing). A great vehicle for Carvey (and I'm not a huge Carvey fan), I can watch it again and again!

5.0 out of 5 stars rock on dana carvey October 19, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Groundhogs Day = a man with no lust for life repeats the same day over and over.
Clean Slate = a man with lots of zest and charm can't remember anything once he has slept.
Anyone who equates these two movies has a delinquent intellect.
That said, I would just like to share with you my love for this movie. I think it is well-crafted, well-executed and so very funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars dumb humor July 23, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is the best comedy of all time. Dana Carvey pulls off the best character of a guy who's got temporary amnesia. He plays the perfect role waking up as a complete moron to the world every morning, whenever he goes to sleep ~ he loses his memory. If you liked Dumb & Dumber...etc. you will love this movie. And it's a good one to buy because you have definately got to watch it more than once. You can't catch everything the first time you watch it. Hope this review helped.

2.0 out of 5 stars You Golino, girl April 3, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The comedy CLEAN SLATE runs hot and cold. Its director, Mick Jackson, has made at least one gem (L.A. STORY) and one dog (THE BODYGUARD), and he's between those extremes this time around. CLEAN SLATE's worth a try on television as opposed to buying or renting.

CLEAN SLATE's imaginative premise involves the plight of lead actor Dana Carvey, who doesn't remember anything previous to his last night's sleep. Before we even get to know his character, the film rushes into the story of the daily amnesia attacks, one reason it took me some time to start enjoying the film. Further, several weak plot devices and too many one-note characters strain the credibility of CLEAN SLATE's otherwise fun, clever story.

While its jokes hit or miss, CLEAN SLATE does not waste the comic talents of "Saturday Night Live" funnyman Carvey. However, it is lead actress Valeria Golino who, playing the friend Carvey may not be able to trust, carries the film. She certainly has the advantage of playing CLEAN SLATE's only three-dimensional role.

CLEAN SLATE ain't bad. With some rewriting here and some editing there, it could have been even better.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it September 12, 2008
By NewMan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's not screamingly funny, but unfortunately it is Dana's best solo starring movie to date.
Carvey and Golino work well together and create real characters out of a pretty one dimensional script. Plus, there's Kevin Pollack who's turned out to be far more talented as an actor than he ever was as a comedian and the ever exquisite Olivia D'Abo (Single Guy (TV), Point of No Return, many bad movies and cartoon voice overs.)
This seems like one of those vehicles that starts with a funny idea, but there isn't the writing talent or maybe just a lack of impetus to develop it fully. It's pretty much a one trick pony.
Robert King needed a writing committee like the writers for the Simpsons to take a basically funny concept and add joke after joke until there was really something there like they did with Groundhog Day.
I saw Pre-SNL Dana live (late '85 or early '86) so I know what it's like to laugh so hard you can't hear all the jokes or breath for that matter. His talent is incredible, but he hasn't has the best of luck in films.
This one isn't terrible, but it will never be on anyone's top ten list either.
(I actually gave 3 stars but I can't figure out how to change it.)
