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 »
This is one of the most disturbing movies I have ever seen. That makes it just more than a bad movie. Martin Short could be seen, as Clifford, as an incarnation of the devil. Clifford is so evil sometimes that it verges on the scary. The look in his eyes is very singular.
My favorite scene is when Charles Grondin tells Clifford :
"Can't you just act like a human boy for a second here. Look at me like a real person. You can't do it more than few second. Look at me like a human boy!"
And Clifford that's not able to look human! AH!!! Pure madness!
I really don't know why this movie was made, but I admire the crazy people who dared to follow their weird instincs.
