“Clue” is a delightfully strange movie which exists as proof that making movies out things like board games is not a new fad or recent phenomenon, no sir, they have been trying this crap since 1985 at the least, and you know? Thirty years later, you can’t tell me that movies like “Battleship” or the upcoming Ouija movie are going to be any better than this whodunnit featuring the guitarist from Spinal Tap and the devil from “Legend.”
This is one of this movies, like so many others, that got kinda panned when it came out and didn’t make much money and was pretty much a failure critically and financially, only to have found new life on home video. It is definitely a cult type of movie, lots of fun and featuring three different endings (endings which were split up among different theaters around the country, a ballsy move only an executive out of his mind on cocaine would green light), with good actors embracing the spirit of the Agatha Christie style murder mystery story that they are obviously pulling from for this movie, and really they could have done a whole of a hell of a lot worse than try to emulate that 50’s gothic mystery sort of movie. Have fun watching this movie and trying to figure out who did it. And with the three different endings, your odds are pretty good!
