Storyline

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 Sarah Elisabeth

Finally a children's movie that comforts
7 May 2004 | by raysondSee all my reviews

Finally around this time of the year before the onslaught of the summer season,especially after the abundance of the previous Easter weekend crap,there are children's films that maybe entertaining,but let's face it...some of them are violent to the core and some contain nothing but the onslaught of toliet humor and outlandish jokes,that suppose to kid friendly,but it isn't funny afterwards when the audience starts walking out of the theatre absolutely ten minutes after the film begins,and you can tell what is about to happen next right away. From corporate kiddie garbage like recently Disney's "Home On The Range",to the latest Japanese fare like the "Pokemon",to the coming soon "Yu-Gi-Oh",have really destroy the original kiddie fare and it has lost with adults too......

Until now something has come along with some decency for a change and finally,a movie that comforts both the adults and the children in the most kid-friendly,animated feature I've seen this year,and it is a breath of fresh air. When I saw this flick where the majority of the audience were a bunch of parents and pre-schoolers and some teens,I'm thinking it's about time they made a good animated flick without all of the corporate crap and garbage,and believe me,"Clifford's Really Big Movie" delivers. This is an oppressively,innocuous,if not impressive animated feature featuring the big red dog Clifford and all of his friends in there first full-length feature film. This film is spun off from the award winning children's show on PBS,which itself is spun off the award winning series of children's picture books about an enormous red dog Clifford and his owner Emily Elizabeth will provide pre-schoolers and their parents with comfort comfort and amusement. However,this a film that contains no bad guys,no raunchy kiddie fare toliet humor,no violence,and finally no situations of trouble that is nowhere to be found,which makes this,like I said earlier a breath of fresh-air. But of course,some of the characters-canine,human and other may do some unkind things,but there are only a few moments of worry and dispair that disappear quickly,and I mean quickly since this movie runs at a mere 74 minutes.

Young children will snuggle up in the movie's good cozy cheer since they won;t mind the gaudy,clumsy animation,which lamely at times tries to bring more color and dimension to the simple,smoothing style of the television series. Adults,on the other hand may find this film sugarcoated,and sometimes the movements of the rubbery background scenary. But as for the voices,which includes the late great John Ritter as the voice of Clifford,along with voice lending support from Hollywood stars John Goodman,Jenna Elfman,Wayne Brady,Josh Harnell,Kel Mitchell,Judge Reinhold,Cree Summer,and Wilmer Valderrama. NOTE: This film was produced by Scholastic Productions,who is also behind the award winning TV series and released by Warner Bors. Pictures.
