In this dark comedy, a mischievous ten-year-old boy named Clifford is sent to his Uncle Martin's for the weekend to get out of his father's hair. It turns out he has a dying obsession to go to Dinosaur World, a theme park near Martin's house and nothing will get in his way to get there.Written by

Although planned for a 1991 release, Clifford became one of many films (including RoboCop 3 (1993)) produced by Orion and filmed years before its release date. The reason it was not released until 1994 was due to company Orion's pending bankruptcy, and not because of bad press screenings, as some sources claim. See more »
Towards the beginning of the movie, Father Clifford is standing in front of a brick wall when Roger jumps from a window and lands on Clifford. Clifford goes down, but the camera does not move. Right before Clifford and Roger get up, the shadows on the brick wall instantly shift, revealing that scene was edited together from multiple takes. See more »
When Clifford is aired on television, several scenes not in the final print are included. Such as Clifford at the airport after making the plane land, there he pretends to be a poor deaf boy. Other scenes include: When Clifford's stolen dog, Sneakers, runs away, there's a scene when they're leaving Sarah's house when Martin tells Clifford about this. After Martin is arrested, there's a scene with Clifford sleeping at Sarah's house and he offers her his great grandmother's wedding ring. A scene with Sarah and Mr. Ellis in a helicopter looking over a new location for a new business. See more »
This movie is ingenious: an absolute masterpiece. One of the smartest and most original movies I have seen in a long time. Martin Short in the best role of his career playing a conniving, manipulative, all-around brat and absolutely shining while he does it. No one else could pull this off so effectively and convincingly. Charles Grodin and Mary Steenburgen are also excellent and at their finest. A MUST SEE!!!!
