Editorial Reviews

Get ready for mischief, mayhem and madness with this outrageous comedy starring the "truly hysterical" (LA Reader) Martin Short. Co-starring Charles Grodin and Mary Steenburgen, Clifford is crammed with enough "laugh-out-loud moments" (Los Angeles Times) and "brilliantly subtle, sophisticated humor" (Entertainment Today) to spoil you for good! Smart, hyperactive and dangerous ten-year-old Clifford (Short) has a lifelong dream: to visit the Dinosaur World theme park. Happily, his uncle Martin (Grodin) has agreed to take him. But when Martin suddenly renegeson his promise, Clifford hatches a devious plan to get evenand teach his uncle that all work andno play makes Clifford a very bad boy!

UPDATE June 6th 2004 (See Original Post Below):

The idiot who claimed the DVD version was edited, needs to lay off the funny stuff !!! Ok, So I was the irate poster of "WARNING: MGM DVD BUTCHERS CLIFFORD !!!" I am writing this to retract that previous post. After purchasing a used copy of "Clifford" on VHS, I was baffled to find the same exact version as that on my DVD version, missing the same exact scenes I had complained about being "deleted" from the DVD release. After doing research on the internet, and searching Yahoo, using "Clifford" and the exact lines I had remembered seeing in "Clifford", as televised on Comedy Central, I came upon this info at IMDB: [...]
The hysterical scenes I had seen (and loved) are only available in the televised version of "Clifford". These were excluded from the final print in the original Theatre release, and all following home video releases. I had only ever seen "Clifford" on Comedy Central, but watched it at least ten times on TV over the years. The scenes that were cut are stil gems, and flow with the story perfectly. (For example ... The scene where Clifford's Father asks Clifford where he got his walkman from at the airport ... "You Stole It Didn't You !? My God, Is There No End To Your Madness !?" ... proceeding that, was the scene where Clifford, on the televised version, had posed as a Deaf Child, with a sign around his neck, to collect money ... after being outed by a woman who speaks sign language, Clifford is seen in a store purchasing the Walkman in question with the money he had collected ... "No, a kindly old priest gave it to me, Da.") I wish the producers of this movie hadn't edited them. They were great. Oh well. Check out the above link I have provided if you are interested. So the blame is no longer on MGM DVD.

Clifford is one of the strangest movies I've ever seen. There is an air of the bizarre that permeates the world of this film. First of all there is barely a special effect to make Martin Short appear to be a [...]old other than the fact that he's always photographed half the size than everyone else. (mainly by sitting lower) No CGI here. I find this hilarious. Clifford is also a twisted sugar freak who will do anything to get what he wants. My favorite aspect of Mr. Short's performance is the face he makes everytime he tips the audience that he's about to do something insane. It is that priceless expression that always makes me want to show others this movie. Charles Grodin and Mary Steenburgen make a great supporting cast but this is Short's tour de force. I don't know a lot of people who've seen Clifford but it seems like it should have a cult following. In any event, if you are a fan of Martin Short's work at all you should see Clifford.

This has to be the funniest movie I have ever seen. The whole movie is soo funny. My favorites parts are when Clifford talks to Stefan, his fake dinosaur. I love you Clifford and wish there was a sequel!!!!
I'm Larry the scary Rex! I'm a scary dinosaur, but don't be scared of my sharp sharp teeth or my mighty mighty roar!

The movie "Clifford" starring Martin Short as a teenage child, is perhaps the funniest movie ever made. Martin Short(Clifford)is obsessed with going to Dinosaur World, which is where his uncle(Charles Grodin)works. Clifford is extremely annoying to his uncle, who asks, "Why can't you act like a normal boy?" Clifford has a small toy dinosaur who he confides in as a sort of alter-ego. He calls the toy Stefan. If you want to see a movie that will have you bursting at the seams, buy this movie. You won't be disappointed!

Canadian comedian Martin Short,who delighted audiences for a while on NBC's Saturday Night Live,delivers another fantastic comic performance as Clifford,a young boy who loves his "new mommy and daddy". As the "mommy and daddy" are Mrs. Ted Danson aka Mary Steenburgen and Charles Grodin. It's amazing how an adult actor could play roles of children so well. Robin Williams did the same thing in 1996's JACK. Short also performed awesomely in FATHER OF THE BRIDE(the 1991 remake) and FATHER OF THE BRIDE PART II.

In my opinion; there have not been enough roles that tap into the unique genius of Martin Short's humor with the exception of, "Clifford". My then teen children and I spilt our sides laughing at Short's work when we first saw this film! Several times we laughed so hard at a scene; we couldn't go on until we replayed the scene several times over. We were all in tears with uncontrolable laughter! All three of us still concider this movie to be among our most favored. Even if you are not a big fan of Martin Short; you will enjoy, "Clifford"!

Clifford (1994) was directed by Paul Flaherty, who also directed Who's Harry Crumb? (1989) and was a writer for SCTV, for which Martin Short appeared on, and also wrote for numerous other of Short's projects, finally sees a DVD release...sort of...the film stars Martin Short as the title character Clifford, a manipulative ten-year-old boy infatuated with dinosaurs and a theme park called Dinosaur World. Charles Grodin plays Clifford's Uncle Martin, and Mary Steenburgen is Martin's fiancée Sarah Davis.

It seems Clifford's Uncle Martin and Sara are having problems in that Sara wants to start a family right away, but Martin doesn't seem serious about it. Then Martin sees an opportunity to show Sara how great he is with children by taking in his nephew Clifford for a week. Clifford, wanting to go to Dinosaur World so badly gets his Uncle Martin to promise to take him, but Uncle Martin must break the promise due to a deadline he must meet for his work. This sets Clifford off in that he creates pranks, simple and elaborate, to get back at his uncle for lying to him. You see, Clifford is extremely intelligent, cunning, obsessive, and pure evil, in the way a ten-year-old boy can be, especially one who doesn't get what he wants.

The chemistry between Grodin and Short is really very good, the two battling wits and Grodin's character never quite realizing the depth of the boy's ruthlessness until it's too late. Short is creepily convincing as a ten year old boy out for revenge for not getting what he wanted, basically ruining his uncle's personal and professional life in a few, short days. There are a number of truly funny scenes and dialogue throughout the movie, and it's quite entertaining.
