I have a definite soft spot for this film, with its lightning fast pacing, witty humor, and exaggerated portrayals of characters from the popular board game. Tim Curry is especially energetic as the enigmatic Mr. Body and the film is a fun blend of mystery and comedy.

A fun 'who done it' full of twists and jokes. The cast is great, especially Tim Curry as the butler. They keep things lively and funny, even when the the multiple endings get explanation heavy.

A rambunctious neo-screwball from the ever reliable Jonathan Lynn. Though it may require multiple viewings for the benefit of cohesion, perseverance will facilitate a rightful and delightful endearment.

Clue review

An amusing underrated gem involving 7 essential figures: Professor Plum (Christopher Lloyd), a psychiatrist, Mrs. Peacock (Eileen Brennan), a Senator's wife who has accepted bribes, Mrs. White (Madeline Kahn), an alleged black widow, Miss Scarlet (Lesley Ann Warren), who operates an illegal brothel, Colonel Mustard (Martin Mull) a war profiteer who made his money from selling stolen radio components, Mr. Green (Michael McKean) a homosexual and butler, Wadsworth (Tim Curry). Wonderful soundtrack, intricate plot, likable characters, sincere performances and an engaging story. Best lines: Mrs. Peacock - "No, just death, isn't that enough?" "And it's always difficult when a group of new friends meet together for the first time, to get acquainted. So I'm perfectly prepared to start the ball ...

Review - Clue (1985)

On a dreary night, six people were invited to a mansion to settle a series of blackmails connected to a man named Mr. Boddy (Lee Ving). After Mr. Boddy is murdered, however, the guests have to solve the mystery in “Clue.”

This film is, of course, based on the board game of the same name (known as Cluedo in the U.K.). The characters, Mrs. Peacock (Eileen Brennan), Mrs. White (Madeline Kahn), Prof. Plum (Christopher Lloyd), Mr. Green (Michael McKean), Col. Mustard (Martin Mull) and Miss Scarlet (Lesley Ann Warren) are all present, including new characters Yvette (Colleen Camp) and Wadsworth (Tim Curry). You may have already known this, but I just wanted to point out the great cast.

Anyway, the movie itself is nothing special as a comedy, even though I do think it’s hilarious, but what...
