Fun Murder Mystery Spoof - DVD Includes Three Different Surprise Endings
Verified purchase
This is a really well made and highly entertaining 1980s spoof of a murder mystery featuring the characters from the popular board game Clue/Cluedo. The sets are beautiful, the mansion where the action takes place is suitably gothic and the cast is fantastic. Tim Curry as butler is particularly memorable, as is the incomparable Madeline Kahn. Oh, and everybody else.

It's huge fun to see Miss Scarlet (Lesley Ann Warren) and Mrs Peacock (Eileen Brennan) and Mrs White (Madeline Kahn) and Mr Green (Michael McKean) and Colonel Mustard (Martin Mull) and Professor Plum (Christopher Lloyd) come to life on the screen. The manic dialogue is expertly delivered by the actors, accompanied by just the right kind of music. The whole thing is absolutely hilarious. And the film has aged remarkably well. It's as watchable now as it was when first released thirty years ago. Highly recommended for both aficionadoes of the game and those who've never heard of it. Great film to keep the entire family entertained on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

The DVD is excellent, both picture and sound are very clear, and that includes the quick fire dialogue of the finale every word of which is easily understandable. English subtitles for the hard of hearing are available. Three different surprise endings were produced so as to keep audiences guessing right up to the end who is the murderer. All three endings are featured on the DVD. Also included is a trailer.

Murder Can Be Fun
Verified purchase
Based on the game that we call in this country Cluedo, so this is a fun little film with an ensemble cast of well-known faces. This did not do that well at the box office, and indeed received a very mixed bag when it came to reviews, however since then this has gone on to become something of a cult movie, because although not great in any way or form, this is funny and more than enjoyable enough.

It is 1954 and a group of people meet at an old mansion in New England. All of these persons have been invited by a mystery host and all are told to adopt a certain identity, such as in the board game, and thus not knowing each other we see what will happen next. An ideal opening as such for a country house type murder mystery. We know that this is going to be played for laughs the moment we see Tim Curry, who plays Wadsworth the butler step into some doggy doo, and the dog gives him a look.

Whilst there are some good one-liners and other puns that work, as well as references to other murder mystery books and films in the genre, it has to be admitted that at times the jokes become a bit scattergun in approach, and so there are some that just drop dead on their faces. You do at times also get a certain feeling of frustration from the cast as they are not used to their full potential, with a certain repetition of jokes and a not very strongly plotted script. This leads us as viewers to although laugh at times, also at other periods to want to pull our hair out as it all becomes a bit messy.

This edition does give us the three alternate endings so that is a bonus, as those who originally saw the film at the cinema only saw one of these endings, whichever one had been given to the cinema. As such, this came up on my recommendations list on this site, and I have seen this a few times in the past anyway, so I knew that this was far from brilliant, but more than entertaining enough to pass an hour and a half or so of good enough comedy. To be honest some of the gags here are quite stale, being presented before to us in other films over the years before this was made, and thus we know what is going to happen, and there is just no way that the cast can make these look fresher.

Astounded by all the plaudits
Verified purchase
I feel terrible just for giving this film 2. The only reason I didn't give it 1 was Tim Curry., the beautiful wardrobe and the settings. I had high hopes for this film after reading amazing reviews on IMDb but I couldn't watch it after half an hour. It is incredibly wooden and stale; terrible direction and awful script. Some of the actors tried their best (Tim C mainly) although some didn't bother at all. A very gimmicky film (I don't mind gimmicks as long as it's entertaining.) with no tension, no fun, no entertainment. I really wanted to like it. Really dreadful gags, really homophobic, really bad physical comedy. Dire. Very outdated. I think a lot of people enjoying this maybe watched it when they were young. I loved a lot of terrible movies when I was growing up and still enjoy them, despite knowing that they are turkeys. But I didn't watch this when I was young, so I can't enjoy it. Sorry Tim Curry.

A cult classic - one of my guilty pleasures
Verified purchase
I love this film, I have seen it so many times. Eileen Brennan steals any scene that she is in of course, but then that's half the joy of this clever and fast-paced comedy. There isn't a bad bit of acting in the film, it's all done in quite a hammy way, but that's its charm.

The film is very very loosely based on the 'Cluedo' board game, but only in the sense of having a murder take place and a group of house guests have to deduce who dunnit with what weapon and in what room. The multiple endings are a must and are an essential part of the overall viewing experience of this film - which is partly why I wanted to have it on DVD instead of catch the rare occasional viewing on TV, as you can't be guaranteed of getting the string of alternate endings on TV.

Saying that, the DVD allows you to choose whether you want to play all the endings in sequence, or have it select one at random - which is a nice touch, but as I say, I think half the fun is getting to see all of them.

You owe it to yourself to see this cult classic.

A murder mystery parody (and a very good one)
Verified purchase
Starts a bit like Christie's "And there was none". A group of people is invited into a remote house where mysterious murders begin. But despite being a full blown murder mystery (with hidden passages, motive's and the whole paraphernalia), this is a jolly good comedy. I smiled more than once and laughed on at least one occasion. It seems to me the whole cast were enjoying themselves there. Different endings were fun too.

It has been filmed a long time ago but still remains witty and funny.

I love this film

whether or not you have played Cluedo, this is a great film to watch.
A murder mystery film sety in the 50's i believe, where a bunch of people all gather together for a dinner party and then one by one, they start getting bumped off!
If you know the Hasbro game, then this is a real treat. LOVED IT

A great classic comedy... with a twist or 5
Verified purchase
Well this is probably one if not the only 80s comedy everyone should own...

Not forgetting you get both the theatrical version & a 4-5 random ending (yes there are multiple finishes to this film) & yes when it was originally released a the cinema every cinema was given an alternative ending film so ppl going to different screenings seen different versions etc

Anyway, this is brilliant & I do hope they never try to remake this...

Buy, enjoy

Wonderfully Funny, but one drawback
Verified purchase
This is a SUPERB and HUGELY FUNNY film, with three different possible endings, which you can choose to allow to happen randomly, each time, or you can watch the whole movie and see the three different endings, one after the other, at the end. Tim Curry's character is especially intriguing to watch. The one drawback is that, this being an old film, there is an element of non-political-correctness which actually might quite upset some modern viewers.
