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 ...
I have not seen the first VCR Clue game (I did just buy it on eBay) so I do not have anything to compare this to. I love how over the top it is. The game play is good, but I can rarely find anyone who wants to compete with me. They hate needing to watch scenes over and over. I just converted my tape to DVD so I don't have to rewind! YEAH:) It is fun to see how the actors interact with each other and how iconic each of the characters are. This is not suppose to be good acting. It is meant to be the extreme campy over the top production that it is. The filming is good in that it never forces you to watch actors with nothing to do. If an actor is not speaking they are doing something related to the game clues. It is a bad actors dream, because they don't have to rely on the usual tricks. Too bad there is not more of a demand for this kind of interactive movie.
