Movie of the Week : Clue (1985)
Directed by Jonathan Lynn. With Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry and Christopher Lloyd.
Clue is a 1985 comedy film based on the board game of the same name. The film is a murder mystery set in a Gothic Revival mansion. The movie was shot with three different endings and in the DVD release, we can watch all the three.
In 1954, six strangers are invited to a party in a secluded New England mansion. They are met by the house butler, Wadsworth (Tim Curry), who reminds them each that they have been given pseudonyms to protect their true identity. During dinner the seventh guest, Mr. Boddy, arrives. After dinner, Wadsworth reveals the true nature of the party: all of the guests are being blackmailed to hide their secrets.
Amazing performance by Tim Curry and the whole gang. Witty Dialogues. Situational Humour. Its definitely one of a kind. Worth Watching before bed after a very hectic day!
