Clue is a movie about seven guests, a butler, and a maid, who are all involved in a series of murders. The guests all meet at Hill House, where you learn that Professor Plum works in D.C., where everyone else lives. Colonel Mustard is a client of Miss Scarlet, who is the ex-employer of Yvette, the maid, who had an affair with the husband of Mrs. White, etc. Blackmailer Mr. Boddy gives each guest a weapon and tells them to kill butler Wadsworth to avoid being exposed. Add in Mrs. Peacock's craziness and Mr. Green's clumsiness, and meet a whole group tangled in a web of murder, lies, and hilarity. Written by Ali Harton

Tim Curry had previously starred in another comedy set in a gigantic mansion. That was The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) where Curry played Frank 'n' Furter. See more »


When Mr. Boddy instructs the guests to murder Wadsworth in the study, he turns off the lights and the room is henceforth plunged into complete darkness. A gunshot is heard, and when the lights are switched back on, Mr. Boddy is apparently dead, resulting in confusion over how he was killed (the bullet only grazed his ear), and who tried to shoot him. None of this would have been possible considering the fire burning in the fireplace would have sufficiently illuminated the entire room. See more »

Why I love Clue
24 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

I am 32 now and when I was 16, I had watched Clue over 40 times. I love Clue as it is funny, I wanna be in there with Wadsworth and it is my favourite film ever. My video got so warn out I now watch it on DVD. When I was younger, myself and my mate, we knew the lines off by heart and I still am good at it now. Even my son who is 5 has watched the film more than ten times.

I think Tim Curry is great, have been a fan of him since I was young and saw the film and have been mad about the film ever since.

Tim Curry is great, am trying to tell my son all the other films that Tim is in, but I won't show him IT or Rocky Horror yet.

What can I say I'm just mad about Clue, I can watch it again and again and my son reacts all the scenes, so now it's great to have someone I can talk to about the film, as everyone else in my family, well I think I drove them mad when I use to watch it over and over again.

Tim Curry You're the best.
