When clapping broke out close to the end of Clifford's Really Big Movie -- the clapping of little hands, I might add, and not big ones -- it felt as spontaneous and as heartfelt an expression of youthful joy as I have heard in a long time.

A slightly distended version of the television program, here voiced by some of the best actors in the animation business, including the late, great John Ritter in the title role.

It's not dreadful, just dull.

Though not exactly a gripping experience for adults, parents have reason to be grateful for a movie that has been so carefully tailored to preschool to first-grade sensibilities.

Unlike television cartoons that sell their souls to make the leap to the big screen, this animated G-rated film is faithful to Norman Bridwell's beloved book series about the big red dog.

Trades in easygoing humor to peddle its message of bigheartedness.

Charming and harmless. Nap while your kid enjoys.

So, how big is Clifford's Really Big Movie? Maybe too big for a toddler's britches.

Some children might find Clifford's tale on the tame side, but at least as many parents will be happily surprised by the warm and cuddly tone.

Clifford's Really Big Movie is easily consumed and disposed of entertainment for the small fry...

April 28, 2004 Full Review Source: Worcester Telegram & Gazette

The animation has cheap-and-fast written all over it. It's so chintzy, the characters look as if they've come straight from a box of Colorforms.

Modest in the best sense of the word, this traditional animated film adheres closely to the gentle, easygoing tone of the hugely popular PBS series.

April 23, 2004

The messages are honest and not slathered. The characters are kind, amusing and, by now, quite familiar (author Norman Birdwell created Clifford and friends some 40 years ago).

Despite the movie's rather unoriginal story -- that age-old plot about running off to the join the circus -- at least the filmmakers have created something which, though a little bland, is never crass or vulgar.

Should delight most four-year-olds and won't torture parents (much) in the process.

The limited animation style looks static on the big screen and the movie is too long for its age group even at 75 minutes. (It was too long for my age group, too.)

A really big yawn...No one whose age is into double digits will find much to enjoy in this gentle, innocuous and very dull feature.

Just okay. My kids enjoyed it, although my daughter said she wouldn't mind not seeing it again.
