Clifford's Really Big Movie
from Film Forum, 03/04/04

Clifford's Really Big Movie, based on a popular TV series which was based on the beloved series of children's books, is getting applause from reviewers and family film watchdogs.

Annabelle Robertson (Crosswalk) says, "This film offers a positive message about the importance of family. [It] also explores the concept of individuality and acceptance. Another positive message of the film is that we can be tricked by our desire for fame and fortune. Overall … the movie offers a positive, fun experience for young children."

At Decent Films, critic Steven D. Greydanus interviews his nine-year-old daughter Sarah regarding her impressions of the movie.

Andrew Coffin (World) also caught a movie made for small children—Clifford's Big Movie. He calls it "a mildly amusing children's film without great aspirations. There's a strong—and harmful—tendency among reviewers to require a children's film to exhibit an adult level of cynicism or 'sophistication' before acknowledging it as worthwhile entertainment. While Clifford may not approach transcendence, it is suitably "unsophisticated" enough to entertain kids and satisfy discerning parents."
