Sequel to the live action VHS version of Parker Brothers' classic board game 'Clue' (or 'Cluedo'). The characters from the game are now on the run from an Interpol inspector because of all the crimes they've committed.
Joe Braxton is an ex-con who has been given a second chance to freedom after violating his probation. He has been hired by a school teacher named Vivian Perry to repair and drive an old ... See full summary »

In this mixture of screwball and situational crime comedy based on the classic Parker Brothers game Clue (or Cluedo), all the classic Clue characters are now on the run together for various reasons. Mrs. Peacock, a seemingly nice old American lady who's actually a ruthless black widow responsible for the death of her numerous husbands, is on the lam with her seemingly simple maid Mrs. White, who's actually wanted for blackmail. Professor Plum, a chemist obsessed with explosives, poisons and murder who looks like a quaint book worm, is on the run with Mr. Green, an obese mob accountant with a suitcase full of money he stole from his gangster employers. Spy duo of Asian-European, Miss Scarlet, and elderly Brit in safari clothes, Colonel Mustard, is after a microfilm that the UK wants. The mustached French-sounding Mr. Brunette, who always wears his characteristic fake eye patch and a beret, is on the run from the IRS with his partner in crime Miss Peach, a seemingly nice southern girl ...
The acting is over the top, the plot is pointless, and the comedy fails because they try too hard, but diehard fans of the first "Clue" VCR game as well as the 1985 movie will love this sequel.
If you enjoy actually playing the VCR version of the game (I do, but many don't), then go for it - otherwise, it might be worth hunting down a copy of this video just to laugh at it. Highlights include Sgt. Gray's chronic amnesia problems, many of the characters dressing up as each other, Sgt. Gray walking in on Col. Mustard while he's tied up in bed, and a wacky string of scenes involving microfilm hidden inside a fortune cookie.
Definitely not something that should be shown to inspire film students, but worth the time to look for if you're into silly low-budget videos.
