Το ό,τι μέχρι το τέλος καταφέρνει να βγάζει νόημα (τι λέω, να βγάζει ΤΡΙΑ νοήματα) σαν κανονικό murder mystery είναι θαύμα από μόνο του.
It absolutely captures the spirit of the board game and in that respect it might be the best board game movie adaptation. A wholly entertaining film with lots of laughs and a pretty solid cast. I just can't get over that I didn't care about anything that was happening, who would die next or who did it.
Quick-moving, breathlessly amusing, and fully entertaining, Jonathan Lynn's "Clue" is, simply, great. A film based on a popular board game from a time when turning toys into movies was novel, "Clue" weaves wit, carefully choreographed physical comedy, and a touch of naughtiness into piece of work that is one or two moments away from being a perfect comedy. Nonetheless, "Clue" is endlessly fun.
The film is never coy about its conceit, relishing in its source material by putting its cast…
I know, I know, this is a cult film. It has the incredible Tim Curry who will always be the divine Frank n Furter as the butler. It is a funny take on the popular murder mystery board game Cluedo.
Why then does it fail? (And I really think it does). It doesn't have enough 'star quality'. It tries too hard to be snappy and quotable, but only succeeds in being annoying. It has those dumb multiple endings, and it…
No movie reminds me of college more than this, even though I'd seen it multiple times prior to college. But during college, my buddy Tom and I watched this dozens of times during our four years there. If you would have mentioned this movie to me in 1997, I probably could have quoted you 85% of it. Now, I probably could only do 40%... This movie is as quotable as an episode of Seinfeld. If you find yourself in a…
I'm sure we've all played funnier games of Clue, though sadly not with Tim Curry and Madeline Kahn.
Everyone loves a good ol' murder mystery, right? Taking the popular family boardgame 'Clue' (or 'Cluedo' in NZ) and turning it into a movie is probably one of the more logical ideas for a film based off a game that I've heard.
It actually makes for some surprising fun - the characters are large, the film doesn't take itself too seriously, and there are so many jokes crammed in that occasionally one lands, through sheer force of statistics. Clue would…

Jarret, the butler, stood in the giant entrance hall in the great “Hillside Mansion” (creative, I know), facing towards the front door. The six guests he had welcomed inside were in a room to his left. There was no noise…
...well that was all over the place, in a good way
This is one funny-ass, well-constructed movie
Worth watching just for the tour de force performance from Tim Curry. The plot is a load of nonsense though.
