Clifford overhears Mr. Bleakman say that feeding him must cost a lot of money. A carnival act called "Larry's Amazing Animals" has just been in town, and the animals in the show told Clifford about an animal contest with a prize of a lifetime supply of Tummy Yummies. So he decides to run away along with Cleo and T-Bone, join the carnival act, win the contest, and bring the food back. Soon Clifford is the star of the show, and Shackleford the ferret, who'd always been the star, gets jealous. Clifford just wants to help and win the contest -- but getting back home to Emily Elizabeth may not be as easy as he thinks, even after the contest is over.Written by
I took my 4 year old daughter to see Clifford. She loved it. I would recommend the film to anyone with pre-school children. No scary parts, kept her attention, nothing offensive. When we got home all she wanted to do was play her Clifford game on the computer.
Older children would be bored (obviously). I take my kids to see movies about once a month, and there are times that I am uncomfortable with the content of the film. So often any more the movies are marketed towards kids of all age groups and contain bathroom humor and suggestive material. Clifford's Really Big Movie was marketed properly and the delivered product was predictable. I felt it was well worth the money and will purchase the DVD when it is released.
I got a lump in my throat after the last scene. The words "For John".
