Pogue is a private eye with a problem: every morning when he wakes up, he has total amnesia, waking up with a 'blank slate'. Since he is in the middle of a hot investigation and has a developing romance, this is less than convenient.Written by
Dana Carvey and Olivia D'Abo previously both starred in "Wayne's World 2". See more »
Pogue's dog, Baby, has an eye-patch over his right eye. It is stated that as a result, the dog has a depth perception problem. While this could be true, the problem manifests itself not as depth perception, but in moving towards things to the left of where they actually are. See more »

It's so nice seeing all your faces here: John and Susan and Mary and Fred and Ethel, Little Ricky

The American TV version deleted a large section between Pogue's visit to the fashion show and his dictating to his tape recorder about the coin being with "Baby". In addition to eliminating the entire "guest speaker" scene, one of the funniest in the movie, this is also the part where Pogue learns tha the coin is with Baby. Thus, the viewer is left out of a key clue in this mystery! See more »
"Clean Slate" is an engrossing, cleverly plotted comedy, but be warned: if you're looking for belly laughs, this isn't the film for you. It's a plot-driven film that can be categorized as a comedy only because of its light tone. With the same material and a serious approach, this could have been a great Kafka-esque thriller. Carvey is remarkably easy to identify with. (**1/2)
