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...

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.

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.
April 23, 2004
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.
April 23, 2004
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.

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.

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.

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

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.
April 22, 2004
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.
Full Review | Original Score: C-

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

Belies its name with its formulaic storytelling and lackluster animation.
February 20, 2004
Plays like a two-part episode of Clifford's really small TV show.
