Clue Movie

Updated on March 15, 2015

four stars

Yes, this is a movie based on the board game. Obviously, that sounds like an atrocious idea, but it is hilarious. Infinitely better than any frat pack comedy, and I would put it right up there with The In Laws and The Blues Brothers. Basically, all the characters are brought together by mysterious letters inviting them to some dinner party. They are all given pseudonyms, which are the characters’ names of the Clue board game.

Then it is revealed that all the characters are involved in scandals and the host of the dinner party has been black mailing all of them. The host then gives everyone a gift. Each gift contains one of the weapons from the board game. Then, for some reason, the host turns off the lights. Let it be known that all the characters have weapons, and the host has already told all of them that he is blackmailing them. Obviously, there are crashes and gun shoots in the dark. When the lights are turned on the host is dead.

Then, hysteria ensues as other people in the house are killed while the Clue characters try to figure out who the murderer is. I will not reveal the murderer here, but here is a hint, there are three different endings and none of them make real sense. The film includes such classic lines as, “Communism was only a red herring,” and “I hated her so much. It was like flames… flames on the sides of my face.”

      I love this movie. I consider it a classic and was introduced to it when I was a kid. I agree with, Matt; the alternate endings are awesome!

      Definitely one of my favorite rainy day movies. Hilarious in many ways with a lot of great stars of the time. Thought-provoking and funny at the same time makes for a great movie. The best part of the film to me is the multiple endings.
