CLUE - Comedy=Murder in Space
2 March 2004 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

Cute, stock murder mystery which completes its task of entertaining you on a rainy day or boring night. I happened to rent this in high school when I was on a Michael Ironside binge, and found it to be quite the ensemble effort. Complex, with the typical, hilarious score including the "DA DA DAAAA"'s when the shocking plot twist lines are revealed and such. Wilford Brimley, cashing in on the COCOON fame, holds your attention in a rough and ragged, "Well doggone it this is my job and I'm taking it seriously, regardless of the ever hectic family life..." You might laugh at a lot of the schtick, but if you're into the Murder mystery, this is a nice take on it. The question of who holds authority and to what extent should that authority be taken in a confined space situation is raised. This movie made me think a little about that. Kudos to all involved. Michael Ironside rules. (with or without hairpieces) Incidentally, if you like Mr. Ironside, check out COMMON BONDS, NEON CITY, TOTAL RECALL, V, or WATCHERS, among many others.
