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 Short's co-stars are usually standing on boxes and next to slightly oversize props. See more »
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 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.
