Storyline

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

When Colonel Mustard suggests that everyone splits up, Professor Plum says if they go into pairs, one person will be left with a killer and Colonel Mustard replies saying the murder would have to be murder victim's partner. Yvette and Mr. Green were partners, yet when Yvette is killed, no-one assumed it was Mr. Green. See more »

A cult classic
22 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

Clue is a laugh riot from start to finish. The cast is great with the obvious star being Tim Curry. The plot is well thought out and is rather original. Clue is the perfect mixture of comedy and mystery. The best treat is that this movie has three completely different and hilarious endings. This is a must see.
