  • It may get younger viewers to sit and stay, but Clifford the Big Red Dog is nowhere near as charming as its classic source material.

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

    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.

    It feels like one of those live-action Disney features that were so prevalent during the 1970s -- one could easily picture Jodie Foster as the prepubescent heroine, Dean Jones as her bumbling uncle, and Don Knotts as the supremely self-satisfied villain.

    Clifford the Big Red Dog is a scrappy delight. It may not have a lot on its mind and it stumbles all over the place but it delights in where it counts and its basic charms are almost irresistible.
