This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen.

Clifford's mission is to get to Dinosaur World ("The only place where a boy like me can be happy...") and he will stop at nothing to get there!!!

Me and my family enjoyed this movie so much that instead of just renting it - we decided to buy it.

I don't ever write DVD reviews on here, but I feel I have to as a WARNING to true fans of this movie. I wish I could give this DVD 5 stars, I really do, but MGM for reasons I can't figure, have butchered this movie beyond belief !!! "Clifford" is one of my favorite movies, one of the bestest in the whole wide world. I was very excited when I read it was to be released on DVD. But some of the funniest scenes in the film have been cut out completely. I'm talking whole scenes. Why ?! What the hell is MGM thinking ?! I am continuously amazed and disgusted by how film companies seem to edit movies re-released on DVD, for no apparent reason. Columbia is famous for editing their release of Three Stooges shorts on DVD, editing out scenes as well. Why ?! I am highly disappointed, and if you are a fan of the original movie, as shown in theaters and on cable, this DVD will leave you disappointed and angry ... So what scenes are cut out on DVD ?
* The scene in the airport where Clifford is outed by a woman who knows sign language, when he poses as a deaf child, to collect money.
* When "Clifford's" dog "Sneakers" runs away, one of the funniest scenes. "Not my Sneakers ! Not the bestest dog in the whole wide world !"
* When Uncle Martin Pushes Clifford's Face into his bowl of cereal. "Oh, honey, be careful how you eat your cereal. Use a napkin. This Boy and His Cereal !"
* Among Others. Some of what I believe, the funniest scenes, GONE !!!
Butchered !!! Watching this DVD, for someone who knows the original, is a painful frustrating experience more than an enjoyable one. I got this DVD for under 10 dollars, but still ... I'm wishing I had just bought a used VHS. I may return it, if possible.

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!

We can't stop quoting lines from this movie. Usually my husband and I do not see eye-to-eye on the comedy we enjoy, but this movie had us both laughing. I have seen it before at a younger age and my siblings and I love to remind one another of it from time to time by quoting lines or posting a snippet of a scene on fb. To me this is a hilarious movie, without the constant cursing and sexual innuendos that most newer comedies have. We do not enjoy that type of comedy/comedian.
Any luck with that chocolate!?

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!

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"!
