The ensemble cast is marvelous and help spin a decent enough movie out of the premise for a board game.

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, …
