    It's the classic who-dun-it board game, but a film. But don't wait to play the game first, the film version is much better!

    A critical and commercial flop upon release, what we have here is a bonafide cult classic. That's a term which gets thrown around a lot by people who love much-maligned or little-known films but Clue has earned that title through many years of reappraisal and more importantly, finding a robust-enough audience.

    Still, the farcical humor isn't for everyone. If you're not jiving with director Jonathan Lynn's deliberate yet gradually madcap pacing, or the carefully-tuned exaggerated performances, or the dialogue, which…

    I have never played the boardgame, but honestly, i dont think it would have made a difference. The movie is superb. A murder-mystery comedy, on par with most of Mel Brooks filmography.

    Its as exciting as it is outright hilarious. To this day, i have never seen a movie with this many puns, and i do mean that in a positive sense. I sat the whole movie through, struggling to find proof of who the murderer was, with no luck.…

    A waste of a great cast. Not a patch on comparable films of the era

    In terms of humour, Clue begins as a casual jog and ends in a literal mad dash to the finish.

    It is rare for anything to get a true boisterous belly laugh out of me, but Clue managed it time and time again. It's now easily in my top favorite comedies of all time.

    Well that was unexpectedly delightful.

    Six people are invited by secret letter to a remote, stormy hilltop mansion. Blackmail most foul is revealed. Six minor characters are murdered. Tim Curry uncovers whodunnit.

    What a cast: Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, Madeline Kahn, Tim Curry. The set is terrific right down to the secret passages. The references to the boardgame source are cute. The plotting is absurd, but so what. It's fun, it's funny, it's interesting to see how the movie tries to explain all the murders.

    Having established its contrived plot in the stiff first 30 minutes, Clue ironically relaxes into a pleasant groove of screwball paranoia as the bodies begin to pile up and the suspects creep and lurk from room to room in their search for clues to reveal the killer's identity. However, it's the final 30 minutes in which Clue really springs to life, with Tim Curry delivering a virtuoso performance as he frantically leads the others through his theories on the mysteries before them.

    In an age where literally anything can be made into a [cruddy] movie, it was refreshing to see this. Based off of the board game of the same name, "Clue" is a fun movie that proves a little effort goes a long way when adapting something for film. Maybe the recently announced "Pez" movie has a chance after all...

    One of the few game adaptions that works, and brilliantly so, I may add. The central, A-list cast are astounding. Lesley Ann Warren as a delectable madam is arguably the best, though the same could be said for Tim Curry's mysterious butler, the late Madeline Kahn as a black widow, Christopher Lloyd as an adulterous shrink, the recently deceased Eileen Brennan as a bribing senator's wife, Michael McKean as a homosexual man closeted for fear of losing his State Department…
