An American grandson of the infamous scientist, struggling to prove that his grandfather was not as insane as people believe, is invited to Transylvania, where he discovers the process that reanimates a dead body.
Clue is a movie about seven guests, a butler, and a maid, who are all involved in a series of murders. The guests all meet at Hill House, where you learn that Professor Plum works in D.C., where everyone else lives. Colonel Mustard is a client of Miss Scarlet, who is the ex-employer of Yvette, the maid, who had an affair with the husband of Mrs. White, etc. Blackmailer Mr. Boddy gives each guest a weapon and tells them to kill butler Wadsworth to avoid being exposed. Add in Mrs. Peacock's craziness and Mr. Green's clumsiness, and meet a whole group tangled in a web of murder, lies, and hilarity.Written by
Colonel Mustard makes a joke about Rudyard Kipling (The female of the species is more deadly than the male) and then asks Miss Scarlet if she likes Kipling, to which she says, "Sure, I'll eat anything!" In the UK, there is a confectioners called "Mr. Kipling", so the joke loses impact. Although, she may have misheard or misunderstood "Kipling" as "kippers" or "kippered herring", which is somewhat uncommon, but known in America as a smoked fish. It is feasible Miss Scarlet has been to some fancy restaurants where this was served, and may not know "Kipling" as an author. See more »
When Mr. Boddy is placed on the sofa, his eyes and mouth are closed. But in the next shot (setting up the gag for Col. Mustard), his eyes and mouth are open. See more »
The end credits begin with "Clue" game cards that are flipped over to reveal pictures of the main characters and the names of the actors that played them. See more »
There is a very large cut in the film when aired on Comedy Central and the Fox Family Network. When Green and Yvette stand at the bottom of the stairs and decide who is to go first, there are a number of scenes showing the other guests looking throughout the house before going back to Yvette and Green, where she says "Go on! I'll be right behind you!" This is how it is found in the theatrical version. On the television version, the scene of the two deciding who is to go first and the the "Go on!" scene are joined together, making one scene. All of the scenes in between are edited out. Also edited out is a scene of Scarlet and Mustard in the Billiard room, and a shot where Mrs White is in a darkened room saying "Are you in here? I'm coming" See more »
How fantastic was this film??? It was made three years after i was born but the first time i saw it, about 7 year old i think... i fell in love. After mentioning to everyone i knew about this film nobody seemed to have heard of it... i get the same reaction now... all i can say is i feel real pity for the people that have never seen this film. One of the best films i have ever seen... not many people can watch films 4 times in one day but if you had the DVD you'd understand... watching all three random endings and then the film with all three!! Fantastic and you find yourself laughing just as much as you did the first time you watched it. All of the actors where brilliant and so incredibly funny, but i have to make a special mention to Tim Curry... OMG no matter what he does he's amazing but Wadsworth can turn the coldest heart, even when he's naughty ;) Tim Curry, we love you hun and you get better with age... It's all good babe!!!
