To me this movie is a classic. A great addition to the spoof genre. As you all know, its based on the board game of the same name Clue and its basically the same premise. 6 dinner guests are suspects to the recent murder of a certain Mr. Boddy.
The suspects are Col. Mustard, Mr. Green, Ms. Peacock, Ms. Scarlet, Proffessor Plum and Mrs. White. The main objects in queston are a candle stick, some rope, a revovler, a knife, a wrench, and a lead pipe. Suprisingly however, that's where the similarities end.
There are new twists added to this simple tale. One example is that there are more characters than just the ones from the game like a cook, a french maid named Yvette, and the butler Wadsworth played by the all masterful Tim Curry plus some others.
Another example are the characters from the games themselves. The most changed character being Mrs. White. Finally, the other main difference is that this also a tale of blackmail. Yes, all 6 dinner guests from the game are being blackmailed. By Mr. Boddy of all people! But what dirt did Mr. Boddy get on all 6 guests?
Well I won't reveal too much, but I will tell you to watch this movie. It's funny, has a few intelligent jokes here and there, and has an all star cast with big names like of course Tim Curry, Christopher Lloyd, and Madaline White.
But what do you think of ths movie?
But you must have known that already...
