Movie Info

When middle-schooler Emily Elizabeth (Darby Camp) meets a magical animal rescuer (John Cleese) who gifts her a little, red puppy, she never anticipated waking up to find a giant ten-foot hound in her small New York City apartment. While her single mom (Sienna Guillory) is away for business, Emily and her fun but impulsive uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) set out on an adventure that will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat as our heroes take a bite out of the Big Apple. Based on the beloved Scholastic book character, Clifford will teach the world how to love big!

Critic Reviews for Clifford the Big Red Dog

All Critics (93) | Top Critics (25)

All up, it's a spirited and unpretentious film with some engagingly eccentric bits, the best of which involve Izaac Wang.

It's a live-action world, though Clifford is a computer-animated dog, which fills the whole enterprise with unfortunate echoes of the "Tom & Jerry" movie from earlier this year.

The film is best when it sticks to children's caper mode, jostled along by gentle toilet humour, bad-tempered barnyard animals and a scene of two kids driving a van across Manhattan.

December 12, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A film so muddled in its storytelling and so specious in its message-making that its very existence is almost nauseating.

December 10, 2021 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

It's loud, it's silly, it's over-saturated; the smaller viewers at the family screening I attended were wildly impressed.

December 10, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A nicely maintained amiable tone takes the edge off the inevitable lavatorial humour, while the 14-year-old Camp... strikes up an impressively plausible emotional connection with her goofy, lolloping co-star.
