Was it Miss Scarlet with the wrench in the drawing room? Or, Colonel Mustard in the billiards room with the rope? The plot is a thick web of mystery and lies in Clue, the 1985 film adaptation of the board game. Boasting an all-star cast — Tim Curry, Christopher Lloyd, Madeline Kahn, and more — family game night never looked so good. With its dark and stormy undertones and mid-century setting, Clue offers a fashionable feast for the eyes. Between Miss Scarlett’s red lips, Mrs. Peacock’s gilded gold dress, and the maid’s ubiquitous uniform, there’s plenty to appreciate while you collect the facts to solve the crime.
Set in New England in 1954, the film follows the six classic Clue players — Professor Plum, Miss Scarlet, Mrs. White, Colonel Mustard, Mr. Green, and Mrs. Peacock — along with a butler and a maid, as they convene at the foreboding Hill House for a mysterious dinner party held by an even more mysterious Mr. Boddy (can you tell where this is going?). The night takes a turn for the worse when Mr. Boddy is murdered and everyone’s a suspect. The guests set off to solve the mystery, and as the bodies pile up, so do the zippy one liners and quotable quips.

I can not believe I have never seen this movie!!!! Totally going to watch it this weekend!
It’s fabulous and so much fun . . .you won’t be disappointed in settling down and watching this one! This post makes me want to pull it out and enjoy again. Great Fall flick.
Aaah~ One of my all time favorite movies! It’s hilarious~
Another fantastic mystery/comedy is “Murder By Death”~ I’ve watched it loads of times and never stop laughing~!
I love this movie so much! Can’t really top it. : )
My two favorite murder mysteries are both Hercules Poirot films “Murder on the Orient Express” and “Death on the Nile” set in the 1920’s the costumes are STUNNING, the plot nail biting and the atmosphere spine-tingling. Absolutely brilliant!! More people should definitely see these movies! If you were inspired by The Great Gatsby fashions, you just wait till you see these!!
I definitely agree with you! I bought an Agatha Christie movie box set from Amazon, and love all of the films. There is something about watching these films on a cosy evening. You should check out Murder by Death.
Flames…on the side of my face…
I use this so often! Darn, I have to watch it again now.
This is one of my favorite movies of all time – so funny. Tim Curry is genius in it!
I think this might be my favorite movie ever. â™¥
