Professor Plum: "What are you afraid of, a fate worse than death?"
Mrs. Peacock: "No, just death, isn't that enough?"

If you've yet to check out this 1985 cult classic, Clue is a reimagining of the Parker Brothers' infamous board game of the same name that finds six strangers and a butler embroiled in multiple murders that they must solve before the police arrive. Was it Miss Scarlet with the candlestick in the library or Colonel Mustard with the rope in the billiard room? You'll have to watch and find out. The casting is pure perfection, especially Madeline Kahn who plays the hilarious Mrs White. And, the dialogue is witty and packed full of double entendre, which I love. I have more fun on rewatches because I always discover something that I didn't see before, and it is best watched with a bunch of friends so you can quote your favorite moments as the movie goes along. Clue is one of my favorite films that I can always count on when I need a good laugh.

If you love is movie like I did when back when, you should watch Psych, season 7 ,1000 clues. It's a great homage to this movie, just as as funny.

Not exactly hilarious, but quite amusing when we get to the three "surprise" endings.

It injects laughter into the "dark and stormy night" cliche.

A wonderful cast with some comic genius's flounder under a terrible director! The script isn't great either but with a different person at the helm, it could've been shaped into a camp cult like classic. Instead, there are pauses, bad editing and an awful soundtrack. I was hoping for a 'Murder By Death' type of result. I could only get through about 1/3 of the movie before I turned it off. What a dud and it had to have been difficult for that cast to make it work, wasted opportunities right and left.

An entertaining movie from beginning to end. It was so much fun to watch and what an interesting premise to base it on a classic board game.

Awesome Movie I loved it so much! Mrs. Peacok is so funny! This is one of my most favorite films!

As far as I know, this is the only film in history that was originally released with 3 different endings. Ingenious gimmick!

Clue is a very memorable film. It has great lines and beautifully comedic moments. The idea of creating an entire feature length movie based upon a board game is pure genius. It also has a cast to die for: Tim Curry, Eileen Brennan, Martin Mull, Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Lesley Ann Warren, and Michael McKean. And the ending(s) are pretty amusing. Clue is also a movie that can be enjoyed by viewers of all ages.
