Clue the Movie

Clue the Movie is one of my favorite movies of all time. Based on the classic board game, it is great fun to watch and faithful to the game we love.
Here is a synopsis I fond at
'A group of blackmailed guests gather in a remote mansion, hosted by a daffy butler (Tim Curry), in this campy adaptation of the popular board game. Suspicions flare when their ostensible extortionist, Mr. Boddy, appears--and drops dead in the study. Hidden passageways, double entendres, and creative murder weapons come into play as bodies drop, disappear, and reappear on one dark and stormy night. An all-star cast assume the roles of Professor Plum (Christopher Lloyd), Mrs. White (Madeline Kahn), Miss Scarlet (Lesley Ann Warren), and the rest of the multicolored bunch as the one-liners fly in this jaunty whodunit. It all concludes with three alternate endings that let viewers decide who the real murderer was.'
It stars:

Eileen Brennan
Mrs. Peacock

Madeline Kahn
Mrs. White

Christopher Lloyd
Professor Plum

Michael McKean
Mr. Green

Martin Mull

Tim Curry
Wadsworth - The Butler

Lesley Ann Warren

Lee Ving

Colleen Camp
Yvette - The Maid

Kellye Nakahara
Mrs. Ho - The Cook
Bill Henderson
The Cop
Jeffrey Kramer
The Motorist

Howard Hesseman
The Chief
Jane Wiedlin
The Singing Telegram Girl

There are many different reviews on this movie. Some find the movie to funny for them and are annoyed by the fact that the crime isn't possible to solve just based on the evidence given (this is because there are three different endings.) However, the cast is very talented and, although it is hard to follow, watching it is exciting and fun.
Check out this trailer for Clue the Movie.
