Plot summary

What is Clifford the Big Red Dog movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Clifford the Big Red Dog" movie plot summary.

A middle schooler in New York City, Emily (Darby Camp) Elizabeth, is bullied by her peers at a fancy private school and lives with her mother Maggie (Sienna Guillory). Her only friend is the geeky student, Owen Yu (Izaac Wang). She is left in the hands of her homeless and irresponsible uncle Casey while Maggie goes to Chicago for a business trip.
Mr. Bridwell (John Cleese), who runs an animal rescue tent at a carnival, introduces Emily to a small red puppy. He tells her that the puppy will grow bigger in size based on how much love he receives. Casey refuses the adoption, knowing that his sister will never allow it and that dogs are prohibited in her apartment building. When Emily gets home from school that day, after being bullied once again, she finds that the puppy has stowed away in her backpack and names him Clifford. Emily tries to convince Casey to let her keep him, and he allows her to keep Clifford only for one night. Emily, heartbroken, tearfully wishes for Clifford to be big and strong, and her tears trickle onto his nose as she falls asleep with him.
The next day she wakes up to realize Clifford is gigantic in size. Casey also learns about this and they both attempt to hide him from the building's superintendent Mr. Packard (David Alan Grier) as he fixes the dishwasher. They take him to the vet, thinking he is possibly ill while attempting to hide him from everyone. This fails dramatically since Clifford's dog instincts cause him to chase and play with a man in an inflatable bubble, seeing it as a game of fetch. This attracts large crowds and the word of his existence quickly spreads online.
