“ Short's comedic talents go to great waste in this awful comedy about a troublesome boy (Short) who terrorizes the life out ofCharles Grodin, who in the film looks disappointed in the sophomoric, unfunny material.
“The rest of the film is just as entertaining.
“ It's the only movie that I ever walked out on.
“ There are a few funny moments in this film, but overall, it is a waste of time.
“ Mary Steenberg once again showed that she is one of the most boring actresses ever and one that ADDS NOTHING TO ANY FILM SHE HAS EVER BEEN IN!!!
“ Starts off slow.
“ But when you look at the larger forces at play in the movie, it may become very enjoyable.
“ One of the worst movies I have ever half-seen - couldn't make it through the whole thing.
“ Now, in conclusion, to all you Martin Short, Charles Grodin, or Mary Steenburgen fans who have not seen this excellent comedy about a ten-year-old menace from hell, I highly recommend it.
“ The movie's unique failure at times makes it watchable in a car-wreck sort of fashion, but eventually becomes tiresome.
“,,,, But yet short somehow makes this work it's a light hearted comedy that I found Rather enjoyable you need to not be so uptight and just be like what the hell To enjoy this movie if you can't do that if you take yourself to seriously you won't like it And you be like a few reviewers on here and hate on the movie Be warned it is normal to loathe the character of Clifford Your either gonna love the character of Clifford or want to kill him lol
“ I found it fascinating...
“ But the work is endearingly quirky, amusing, and entertaining.
“ Clifford starts off slow.
“ Though the ending of the movie is not really funny, the first hour makes it worth watching.
“ It has its moments both exciting and dull the acting is consistent and each character's personality is easily recognizable by the audience.
“ but if this is 'the worst movie EVER' then I'm Jesus Christ.
“ While Charles Grodin isn't that fantastic as Uncle Martin, it's worth watching him so you can see the insanity that is Martin Short as Clifford.
