Watch Clifford the Big Red Dog
- 1 hr 36 min
The animated family film Clifford the Big Red Dog follows the exploits of a giant pet canine and his owner, Emily. The film is based on the classic series of children's books. Emily Elizabeth Howard is a middle school student living with her mother Maggie in New York City. She is regularly bullied but finds comfort in her only friend Owen Yu. Maggie leaves her in the care of her homeless and irresponsible uncle Casey before going to Chicago for a business trip. Mr. Bridwell, who runs an animal rescue tent at a carnival, introduces Emily to a small red puppy whose family had been taken by dogcatchers. He tells her that the puppy will grow based on how much love he receives. Casey rejects the adoption due to dogs not being allowed in the apartment building. When Emily gets home from school, she finds the puppy in her backpack and names him Clifford. Casey allows her to keep Clifford only for one night. The next morning, Clifford has grown to giant proportions. Emily and Casey attempt to hide him from the building's superintendent, Mr. Packard. They try taking Clifford to a veterinarian, but he chases and plays with a man in an inflatable bubble. Word of his existence quickly spreads online. After learning from the vet's secretary of Bridwell's past miracles with animals and their owners, the Howards plan to get information on his whereabouts. As Emily is getting lunch for Clifford from the cafeteria, Clifford escapes from Casey's truck and humiliates a bully named Florence, giving Emily the friends she always wanted.
