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

He says please don't hurt him, he's the only one left in his family.
Just go to your room and write your confession! Pretty soon there won't be anyone left in his family!

While this wasn't quite the disaster that I was expecting, it is still a weak comedy, and also a rather annoying film. It was a competent film, and I can even admit that I laughed on occasion, but the negatives far outweigh the positives. Martin Short was staggeringly hateful in this movie, and even though I suppose that was the whole point, it really is hard to be entertained when the main character is SO irritating. Personally, I would have loved to see his character get decapitated at the end, for it would have turned the film into a feel-good movie. Or better yet, he could have been killed off in the beginning.
