One can't help but laugh at Short's nutty rendition of an unctous little 10-year-old devil, and Grodin's angry reactions are equally funny as his increasingly exasperated uncle.

Witless slapstick with leering, obnoxious man-child.

Orion serves up another long-on-the-shelf turkey with this gimmicky, poorly conceived comedy.

Now let's have a show of hands: how many want to see Martin Short play a ten-year-old brat who makes everybody miserable and winds up staying with his uncle (Charles Grodin) in Los Angeles for a week?

When Martin puts Clifford on a harrowing hyperspeed version of the Larry the Scary Rex ride, the special effects are impressive, but not worth waiting for.

Clifford is not bad on the acting, directing or even writing levels. It fails on a deeper level still, the level of the underlying conception. Something about the material itself is profoundly not funny. Irredeemably not funny.

Remember when Martin Short was funny?
