    You are now SO off my cool list.

    Clue is one of the best movies ever made. Ever. Ever ever ever.

    ^ I second that!

    Love Tim Curry and Leslie Ann Warren (mainly because she's one of the few famous people named Leslie, which is my name)

    The scene where four of them collide in the hall is just brilliant

    OMFG I LOVE this movie. I'm afraid a remake would ruin it. Mrs. Peacock taking bribes in the restroom, Mrs. Scarlett a Madam, it's all classic.

    There is no one working today who could do the job that cast did.

    I third it! Absolutely love this movie...showed it to my step daughter about a year and a half ago, popped it in again about a month or so ago, and she loved watching it again.
    You were lucky to have me. But you know what? I think I already got the best part of you. And she's standing right out there. I don't know... what's left just doesn't look so good anymore. Hope Floats

    I LOVE Clue! I had my nephews watch it over Christmas break a year and a half ago, after we played the game one night, and they loved the movie!

    Please, you can't beat Tim Curry's delivery of that line.

    Oh no way, you did not!!! CLUE is one of my favorite movies of all time, there is no way in remade, it would ruin it! Leslie Ann Warren and Tim Curry and especially Madeline Kahn were absolutely BRILLIANT in that movie. Some of the BEST lines in that movie, hands down. I especially love almost anything that came out of the mouth of Kahn (Mrs. White)....

    Colonel Mustard: How many husbands have you had?
    Mrs. White: Mine or other women's?
    Colonel Mustard: Yours.
    Mrs. White: Five.
    Colonel Mustard: Five?
    Mrs. White: Yes, just the five. Husbands should be like Kleenex: soft strong and disposable.
    Colonel Mustard: You lure men to their deaths like a spider with flies.
    Mrs. White: Flies are where men are most vulnerable.
    Colonel Mustard: Right!
    Mrs. White: I don't want a scandal, do I? We had a very humiliating confrontation. He was deranged, he was...
    [points to head]
    Mrs. White: ... a lunatic! He actually didn't seem to like me very much; he had threatened to kill me in public.
    Miss Scarlet: Why would he want to kill you in public?
    Wadsworth: I think she meant he threatened, in public, to kill her.
    [rolls eyes]
    Miss Scarlet: Oh.
    Miss Scarlet: Was that his final word on the matter?
    Mrs. White: Being killed is pretty final, wouldn't you say?
    Wadsworth: And yet, he was the one that died, not you, Mrs. White, not you!
    Miss Scarlet: What did he do for a living?
    Mrs. White: He was a scientist, nuclear physics.
    Miss Scarlet: What was he like?
    Mrs. White: He was always a rather stupidly optimistic man. I mean, I'm afraid it came as a great shock to him when he died, but he was found dead at home. His head had been cut off, and so had his... you KNOW.
    [Colonel Mustard, Professor Plum, and Mr. Green cross legs]
    Mrs. White: I had been out all evening, at the movies.
    Miss Scarlet: Do you miss him?
    Mrs. White: Well, it's a matter of life after death. Now that he's dead, I have a life.
    Wadsworth: But he was your second husband. Your first husband also disappeared.
    Mrs. White: Well, that was his job. He was an illusionist.
    Wadsworth: But he never reappeared!
    Mrs. White: [admittedly] He wasn't a very good illusionist.
    Wadsworth: Professor Plum, you were once a professor of psychiatry specializing in helping paranoid and homicidal lunatics suffering from delusions of grandeur.
    Professor Plum: Yes, but now I work for the United Nations.
    Wadsworth: So your work has not changed.

    I guess I was disappointed with the context. Superb cast, I was expecting brilliance. But I felt the scriptwriter was not a professional scriptwriter? Probably sounds dumb but some of the way it was written was a bit iffy, and the three endings was annoying.
    I was disappointed.

    Kahn's line about life after death made me laugh though.

    Excellent premise, didn't deliver. Sadly.

    Eh I'm making more of a fuss than I should. I did enjoy it until the end. Quite a lot come to think about it.
    But I'm still vastly disappointed because it was just average!!

    ^^You should watch it again an pay better attention, because the writing is sharp and witty.

    The three endings are based on the concept of the game, which can have a different ending or "winner" every time you play. Not sure if you've played CLue before.

    Yeah, have you ever played Clue??? My sister and I were addicted to it as children.
    I love this movie; the comedic timing and writing are awesome.

    Also, I think Allie is seeing this after a lot of these jokes, originally seen in this movie, have been rehashed to death in movies and television shows. When may of us saw it, these jokes were new and fresh. Now its been so copied that many of the jokes might seem stale to a younger viewer.
