UNCLE MARTIN IS SUFFERING FROM A LITTLE PROBLEM…
Get ready for mischief, mayhem and madness with this outrageous comedy starring the truly hysterical Martin Short (Three Amigos, Innerspace) with Charles Grodin (Midnight Run, The Heartbreak Kid), Mary Steenburgen (Melvin and Howard, Time After Time) and Dabney Coleman (9 to 5, WarGames). Clifford is crammed with enough laugh-out-loud moments and brilliantly subtle, sophisticated humor 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 reneges on his promise, Clifford hatches a devious plan to get even and teach his uncle that all work and no play makes Clifford a very bad boy! Written by William Porter (Back to School) and Steven Kampmann (The Couch Trip); and directed by Paul Flaherty (writer on SCTV, The Tracey Ullman Show, Muppets Tonight + director of Who's Harry Crumb?, 18 Again!).

Whether he is pretending to be angelic or flashing satanic looks, Short makes Clifford an often riotous comic creation. And Grodin, with his fussy airs, makes a perfect fall guy. --Malcolm Johnson, Hartford Courant
There are plenty of laughs here, and Short is clearly having a ball portraying a Damien-like kid... --Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
The kid is obnoxious from start to finish, and the way he fantasizes about his uncle's girlfriend (Mary Steenburgen) is tasteless. --Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune

Hollywood is a place where really smart people go to get really rich. You don't turn over a project like this to a dummy, but in this case, somehow, somebody up the chain of command just did not understand surreal humor or dark humor or, well, humor. They tried to "dumb it down" to make it appeal to, uh, "typical" people and all the laughs went out of it. You can hear the hiss of escaping comedic impact-- listen closely...
Damn it. Damn it. It makes me mad to think that this abomination was one of the things that contributed to Martin Shorts, um, career "challenges." I don't know who fouled up what could have been a very funny movie. but somebody owes somebody a LOT of money. Truly, a missed opportunity. I could see where this was TRYING to go, but it didn't go there because some dummy was too literal-minded to keep the ship on course.
Seriously-- how can you fail to see that an adult being treated like a "child" is just an exaggerated version of what goes on everyday in Mom's basement all across America (and the world?). How dumb do you have to be to miss the way that "Clifford" is a satire of American manners and a spoof of movies where children are considered naturally funny, innocent and cute just because they are children. Clearly, this film was originally intended to spoof the American child-obsession and the idea that kiddies are always right and "Will someone think of the CHILDREN!!" being the ultimate argument.
Then some dummy didn't get the joke and we get this truly un-funny, awful movie. What a waste of talent.
