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

Martin's answering machine message says "...I've got a bomb under City Hall." When Clifford was recording their talk, Martin never said "under". If that was in the answering machine message originally, there is no way that Clifford could have known the exact moment Martin would say "under" or "number" which sounds like "under". Furthermore, the "I got a bomb" could not have been the length from "Hello, this is Martin Daniels. I'm not here right now..." until "under". 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!!!!
