The characters are less credible than their plastic counterparts, the puerile humour is dispiriting, and the plotting pulled this way and that by the conceit of releasing the film in the US with a trio of alternate endings.

the endings are almost intended to be seen sequentially, and they are the funniest when viewed in that manner
| Original Score: 2/5

Though it takes only 87 minutes to arrive at one of its three different solutions, it has long since worn out its welcome by the denouement.

Only Lesley Ann Warren, as a tough-talking madam, finds an effective level of stylization, using her leggy physique and wildly expressive features to create a cartoonish figure that's funny within its own boundaries.

It's not the least bit scary or suspenseful but instead quickly grows tedious. The more you struggle to keep track of the constantly multiplying plot developments, the harder it gets to care who did it.

Easily one of the most gimmicky films of all time ...

Like a stage farce brought (laboriously) to the screen. An inexhaustible ensemble helps a whole lot.

A great movie to get drunk to.

Mostly successful and entirely strange... a comic [mystery] that doubles as a parody and triples as an ironic deconstruction of the form.

As a game and as a movie, Clue is fun.

Curry steals the show in this fun and frantic comedy.

If Clue falls a bit short of the mark, it remains a likeable artifact of talented people giving a ridiculous task the old college try... [Blu-ray]

Like a well-oiled machine, "Clue" uses slapstick and situational humor to tell a rather pointed story.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
