Trivia

Although planned for a 1991 release, Clifford became one of many films (including RoboCop 3 (1993)) produced by Orion and filmed years before its release date. The reason it was not released until 1994 was due to company Orion's pending bankruptcy, and not because of bad press screenings, as some sources claim. See more »

Goofs

When Clifford was going very fast on Larry the Scary Rex, there are strings attached to the harness visible behind the skeleton sitting next to him. See more »

Alternate Versions

When Clifford is aired on television, several scenes not in the final print are included. Such as Clifford at the airport after making the plane land, there he pretends to be a poor deaf boy. Other scenes include: When Clifford's stolen dog, Sneakers, runs away, there's a scene when they're leaving Sarah's house when Martin tells Clifford about this. After Martin is arrested, there's a scene with Clifford sleeping at Sarah's house and he offers her his great grandmother's wedding ring. A scene with Sarah and Mr. Ellis in a helicopter looking over a new location for a new business. See more »

the sort of rubbish which could ruin cinema
7 March 1999 | by crow-24See all my reviews

an extremely surreal trip with a thirty year old man playing a ten year old. I mean just what the hell is that for a start? This is the kind of humor which can be found in such bargain bin "classics" as "Beethoven," and "Beethoven's 2nd." In other words,don't go near this, please,I IMPLORE YOU.
