What can I say about Clue? Not many people went to see it when it first came out, and wasn't very well received. But, people forget the fact this movie was partially created by John Landis and Debra Hill. It even showcases a perfectly silly performance from Tim Curry, a funny Christopher Lloyd, and a suspicious Eileen Brennan. However, as silly as it sounds, there are so many scenarios this movie could've made, but they decided to go with 3. However, this movie isn't superior, but it shows a cleverly written script being transformed onto the screen based on a board game. It's fun. It's entertaining. It's funny. It's silly. It's a bunch of things. This movie is fun for the family, and I would suggest a lot of families to watch it.

I'm new to writing reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, but figured I should write one about my favorite movie of all time, Clue. This film is hilarious. Every line is a gem. Every performance is even better. While many 80s movies do not stand the test of time and today are almost unbearable to watch, this movie not only is still incredibly smart, funny, and edgy, but remains the perfect movie to watch when you need a pick me up.

Sure, there's no real competition for this subgenre, but I sincerely doubt there will ever be a board game adaptation that will ever top the ensemble hilarity of Clue.

Very enjoyable and interesting. Well worth the watch

One of my favorite comedies of childhood even though I didn't get all the jokes. It was yet another politically oblivious 1980s experiment, with brilliant slapstick, bizarre character interactions, and a somewhat nihilistic approach to comedy. A gem of a movie and in the same vein as "Rocky Horror Picture Show" for its anarchic storytelling.

Wow! Such a hard script! I give credit to the actors for even trying to learn such script! They did a good job! One of my favs!

Shouldn't work and yet it's wildly entertaining. Just about everyone in the cast gives absolutely perfect comedic performances.

This was a very fun movie that left me guessing and trying to figure out who the killer is. It did a good job on not giving enough clues for it to be obvious, but just enough for eagle eye viewers to figure out. Plus, multiple endings.

With little in the way of depth and character development while also being slightly cliched this is nonetheless a funny and brisk mystery comedy that has a solid cast, a good score, lavish production and an entertaining plot with three alternate endings that all work in the context of the rest of the film which makes it a unique and clever way to end the film.

A spoof of whodunnits, a reflexive labyrinth like the board game itself, a performative topology. Clue burns slow through its first act, establishing the genre conventions and character entanglements, only to see the seams unravel and its frame crack, the underlying farce forcing its way to the forefront and eventually blowing out the backend. What makes the film particularly rewatchable, however, is the careful construction that allows for its multiple endings-knowing that any or all are possible, the second-time viewer seeks for the Clues she has already heard laid out the last time, looks for the missing persons and lost objects, plays the game though knowing the house always wins.

a hilarious underrated classic

A hilarious movie that uses its gimmicks, quirks, and cheesiness to its benefit. I also do enjoy the multiple endings at the conclusion of the film.

Absolutely hilarious, with amusing characters that interact well in a complicated plotline. And I love how the DVD lets the viewer see all three of the alternate endings!

It is an intense but hilarious movie at the same time. The plot as well as the actors are phenomenal, and I loved every piece of it. I only find is that the beginning is a little too confusing and unclear.

My family frequently references Clue a lot. Overall, I find the movie HYSTERICAL! "I'm not shouting! All right, I am! I'm shouting, I'm shouting, I'm shou--!"

When six people are invited to a dinner party at the mansion of Mr. Boddy, a murder leaves everyone wondering who, what and where? Based on the popular board game of the same name, an all star cast leads this comedy of suspicious characters. Unlike most suspenseful movies though, upon it's release in left not 1 but 3 different endings to choose from. Due to this ending(s), many people where either upset or confused about the way the movie was being portrayed. However, whether your a fan of the board game or not...the comedic talent of the cast and the surprise twists in the plot makes this a funny and worth-while adventure to take. Destined to become a cult classic!!!
