Clue is a film that has developed a large cult following since its release in 1985. I can see why. There is some camp value here with the likes of an excellent Tim Curry and Christopher Lloyd among the cast (though Lloyd is surprisingly subdued for him.) The film has its moments, more than a couple of laughs, and a great energy throughout.
It's also known for its ending (or endings would be more accurate, as it has three.) In…
I really enjoyed this. It had a lot more physical comedy than I expected, but the mystery is fun as hell to figure out. It's goofy, but well worth a viewing.
An idea that could be a disaster: base a film on a board game. However, writer/director Jonathan Lynn manages to pull it off with the help of a cast that is well versed in theater and improvisation. One of the film's unique aspects is that there were 3 endings to it. I've always known it to show all 3 endings because I never saw it in the theater. The last ending is superior though; I would have felt cheated if…

First time seeing this, I loved it. Can't deny that 80's mix of awesomeness and camp. I'm your singing telegram!
Before I begin, I want to give my thoughts about the new TMNT movie trailer......
meh. It could be worse.
Anyway, Clue is a movie based on the board game of the same name. And unlike Battleship, it stays true to it's own origins, instead of having a "shitty alien, transformers, not based on cold war" story. Seriously, Battleship should have taken place during the cold war with the protagonists and the antagonists being the Americans and the Russians, respectively.…
Silly but also quite entertaining.

Madeline Kahn who plays Ms. White improvised this lie which is one of many funny lines, even funnier in context, it also shows why she is one of the funniest actresses of all time.
Without a doubt, one of the funniest films of all time.
So my wife and I watched this and got to thinking that they don't make movies like this anymore. It would just be hard to put together a good ensemble comedy cast for a movie like that these days. So, we decided to take it upon ourselves to figure out who could play the roles if it were made today. After an hour of conversation this is what we came up with.
(This is in no way an endorsement of…
Immensely complex characters and events, with an ending that is just... amazing. I loved this ending, so much.
While cheesy at times, the jokes are enjoyable, and the dialogue is very explanatory. Again, around the end it's spectacular.
Just like with Rocky Horror Picture Show, Tim Curry makes the movie. I mean, Christopher Lloyd was cool, and some other actors were good, but Tim Curry was easily best.
