"Clue" is based on the now infamous board game of the same name. However, here in the UK of course, it is more famously known as "Cluedo".
You may not have heard of a film based on a board game before, indeed I certainly haven't. However, this film contains far more to it then some un-original characters and a famous "sponser".
The film is extremely under-rated, but for me is a perfect blend of physical comedy and witty dialogue. The interatcion between the large cast of suspects and the butler (played by the fantastic Tim Curry) is fast, furious and puts many other dialogue-driven comedies to shame. But there are also some fantastic slapstick scenes, and even some tension thrown in for good measure. The film gathers momentum from the very start, getting faster and faster until the butler then frantically reveals who-did-it.
Then the film plays it's (unique?) trump card: It has three different endings. When shown in U.S. Cinemas, each theatre had a different ending. However, because of the luxuries of DVD, we have it even better. You are able to choose one of the three endings to be chosen, at random, when you view it. Because of the never-ending barrage of jokes in this film, you can re-watch it many many times, still enjoying it - and then get a different ending into the bargain!
The TV and VHS version of the film had to include all three endings in one, and this version is incuded in the DVD as well. In fact, the way the three are linked together in this version is a funny joke in itself.

I was less than enthusiastic when the DVD version of this film was produced by my young charges while I was babysitting recently.

Ordinarily, a film based on a popular board game would not sound the most exciting of prospects, indeed it is the type of film that most sane people over the age of nine would go out of their way to avoid. However, when I discovered that it stars both Tim Curry AND Christopher Lloyd (both veritable kings of cult cinema) as well as that bloke who played the principal in the 90s TV series version of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch", I decided to give it a chance.

Am I glad that I did!

The film takes a playful approach to its subject matter and, as mentioned by several reviewers on here, the script sparkles with a disproportionate number of highly quotable, expertly delivered one liners. The acting is excellent throughout, with Tim Curry's breathlessly energetic portrayal of Wadsworth, the stereotypical butler, being especially memorable.

The children, who had seen it before, enjoyed this almost as much as I did and were acting it out for the rest of the day.

The filming of three separate endings was an ingenious idea and it is worthwhile purchasing the DVD release version simply for the ability to choose to watch all three together, or to simply have one of them appear randomly at the end. The only small problem that I have with this is that there are not more special features included.

However, this is the best version I have so far been able to find of this a truely excellent movie that thoroughly deserves the cult following it has gathered over the years.

A classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars To cut a long story short... 27 May 2006
Format:DVD
...too late! What a brilliant film! I've been watching it since I was about 7, and it gets funnier every year (as I was growing up, I wa able to understand more every time I watched it). It's a classic that no-one seems to know about.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you don't buy this you're clueless 8 July 2003
Format:DVD
To me this is the greatest, Its the only film I have watched more than twenty times and at every viewing I am still rolling with laughter - and how could you not - the cast is fantastic, each giving a hilarious performance especially the ever funny Madeline Kahn (Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstien), Tim Curry (Rocky Horror Picture Show), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) and Michael McKean (Spinal Tap).
Based on the board game Cluedo the six characters meet for a dinner party and guess what? - SOMEONE IS MURDERED!!!! (Shock horror) This film has something for everyone from side splitting slapstick to one liners that run thick and fast (aswell as one of the accents) as the top cast and the audience try to learn who did it,and where and with what?
There is not one part of this film that I dont like. From Tim Curry's first...em...step to the three alternate endings you will laugh untill your face is sore. Who would have thought that mass murder could be so funny. Excellent every time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny, fast and entertaining 3 Feb 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A real bargain! This is an extremely funny film. It runs more like a play than a film - the script is witty and fast. It's well edited and played with tongue firmly in cheek.

I really liked this - and for heavens sakes don't confuse this with the grossly inferior though earlier "Murder By Death" (which is a stinker!)

Tim Curry is on super camp form. And Madeline Kahn is utterlly hilarious. Frankly all the actors are excellent with not a weak link.

An enjoyable romp that does what Murder by Death does, but is more farcicle yet seems to be trying to stay closer to the reality of the genre that it is trying to parody. Read more
