Why is no one mentioning Jack Whitehalls appalling American accent that slips every 2 line of dialogue. I gave up watching as it irritated me so much.

Like many, it takes a period around a few years to interact with this purposefully childish property till growth lessens the interest greatly and moved elsewhere that are more fitting to age. Nostalgia persists in some cases by memories, but revisitations are doubtful unless by generational carriage. Norman Bridwell's "Clifford the Big Red Dog" found further enjoyment through Gen Z not only reading the books but also watching the original animated series that spawned a charming film as its peak in 2004, till shelved. Now the big red dog happily returns with a broader invitation as a newfound endeavor typically imagining the eventful interactions occurring in our realm. However, could he still find acceptance than just being a family film's attraction mostly geared towards the youth?
Schoolgirl Emily Elzabeth has to deal in countering those pretentious norms that her fellow student body obnoxiously embrace and ridicules her admirable ordinariness, even though she doesn't want to stand out. One day with her visiting uncle Casey as they walked to the park, they encountered a strange petting zoo with rescued animals, one of them being a special red puppy she later named Clifford. The following morning, Emily finds him no longer a puppy as he's grown ten feet overnight, barely fitting in the room without breaking anything. With Casey's reluctant help, their attempt to hide the unnaturally huge dog catches the attention of a genetic mad scientist in capturing the playful pup. Chaos ensues as they're being chased, but the bond grows as measurably referenced to what she was told how much her love affects.
Pretty much your average family flick that's blatantly cheesy for youthful reactions with chaos manifesting the roaming free imagination, an antagonist going against nature's laws, and teaching potential that verifies the cheesiness with subtle lessons, not to mention attempting to stir the basic emotions. (Unusual for director Walt Becker behind "Wild Hogs" and lesser "Old Dogs" whilst experienced from the latter). But the formula here pays off towards completing the "love conquers all" ideology that needed to be expressed more, since John Cleese's mysterious character based off the actual author told Emily it's all depends how much she loves Clifford regarding his size. Eventually it became more than just his size, unveiling a notion that not only can be agreed on but also resonates nicely when touching older hearts warmly. This effect is comparable indirectly to few past family films that delivered a truthful message aimed over the youngest heads straight to the older members for formed realization, therefore solidifying the connections upon watching this and certify this as worthwhile enjoyment after being won over its main message – delivered by a veteran actor no less.
Darby Camp, who debuted in "The Christmas Chronicles" films, embodies Emily Elizabeth under a modern light so perfectly with a confidently strengthened caliber that shall boost her stardom. Jake Whitehall indifferently just got off the "Jungle Cruise" and became Darby's uncle Casey with an expected comedic performance that doesn't disappoint, performatively becoming both a victim to the flick's harmless downplaying whilst showing a sense of reality and a favorably successful source of comic relief that contributes to touching mental ticklish spots. John Cleese's presence represents the magical aspect in his caress that suits the given eccentric profession, and a pleasant stature under a somewhat return after voicing and appearing below the radar. Tony Hale has a strained embrace of getting into his mad scientist character as the implausible antagonist who fuels obstacles with little effect.
The live-action "Clifford the Big Red Dog" endeavor may seem more enjoyable by children under the labeling standards, it also appeals to those who are young at heart, especially dog lovers. This film is fun and cute, and even irresistible almost akin to 2006's "Curious George", with a heartening message that grows (figuratively) and actually layered Clifford's loyalty quite nicely. Speaking of whom, the visual gimmick he offers has been drawn decently, though considering the film' setting and its narrative canon, it's going to be quite a scene once he grows to full height – unless the original animated series exaggerated that aspect. Also, with this being the second theatrical release for the books, the reboot offers better appeals than the 2004 charming piece with nostalgic reminiscence. (B)

Pretty solid movie, Tony Hale was easily the best part.
Rating: 0.5 out of 5 stars
Predictable, bad, lousy photography and visual effects. The usual story, nothing attached to reality. Bad teachings for children. Break the law without consequences.
