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

There is a very large cut in the film when aired on Comedy Central and the Fox Family Network. When Green and Yvette stand at the bottom of the stairs and decide who is to go first, there are a number of scenes showing the other guests looking throughout the house before going back to Yvette and Green, where she says "Go on! I'll be right behind you!" This is how it is found in the theatrical version. On the television version, the scene of the two deciding who is to go first and the the "Go on!" scene are joined together, making one scene. All of the scenes in between are edited out. Also edited out is a scene of Scarlet and Mustard in the Billiard room, and a shot where Mrs White is in a darkened room saying "Are you in here? I'm coming" See more »
A hectic murdermysterycomedy with a pace like none other.
This is easily Tim Curry's best role (yes, even better than Frank from RHPS). He is dry and quick to a level that I have never seen topped, and with an all star cast to support him, this is easily my favorite pun filled, fast paced comedy. The beginning of the story begins slow and exponentially increases til the very end. The speed at which the actors are delivering their lines is staggering at some points, and goes to the technical grace of the actors like Christopher Lloyd and Leslie Ann Warren. Also, the late great Madeline Kahn produces a hilarious Ms. White who shall be remembered as her second greatest role (under Young Frankenstein). I cannot say enough about this movie, the script and its wonderful actors.
