Episode 202 - CLIFFORD

Casting a middle-aged comedian as a 10-year-old terror is just one of the ways Clifford puts the lie to the wholesomeness of '90s precocious kid movies. Sure, it's unsettling...but it fits right in with the movie's zany spin on family dynamics, workplace politics, and the pitfalls of growing up.

Our bestest friend in the whole wide world, Matt Steele, helps us find the heart in this wonderfully acerbic, under-appreciated comedy.
