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

The mini-mart clerk is played by Shelley DeSai, and later in the movie, the same actor can be seen at the anniversary party walking by the camera after Martin was taken away by the police. Why would a mini-mart clerk be at a rich mansion for an anniversary party? See more »
Woman on Plane:
Would you please stop hitting the back of my chair? I am trying to sleep!
I'm sorry, Miss Nice Older Person, but I don't know what you're talking about. Perhaps you were just having a nightmare about your early days in the circus.
Woman on Plane:
One more word out of you and I'll call the flight attendant.

Wasn't nice of the mean old lady to smash your collarbone was it, Stephen?

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!!!!
