PG | | Comedy, Crime, Mystery
Six guests are anonymously invited to a strange mansion for dinner, but after their host is killed, they must cooperate with the staff to identify the murderer as the bodies pile up.
When everyone is split off into pairs, the partners correspond with the rolling order of the game, Miss Scarlet and Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White and (Wadsworth), Mr. Green and (Yvette), Mrs. Peacock and Professor Plum. Arguably, the drawing lots scene is symbolic of the die roll, and the constant referring to "ladies first" is reflective of Miss Scarlet rolling first in the game.
Is everything ready?
Yvette: Oui, Monsieur.
Wadsworth: You have your, um, instructions.
After opening the doors to the lounge to let Col. Mustard and Miss Scarlet out Mrs. White says "How did you get in the doors were locked?" After this line, for the remainder of the scene, on the left side of the wall beside the chair the reflection of a crew member and the boom mic pole can be seen moving around.
The end credits begin with "Clue" game cards that are flipped over to reveal pictures of the main characters and the names of the actors that played them.
In some television broadcasts of the movie, the "drawing lots" scene in the kitchen is cut out. The scene goes from the decision to split up and cuts directly to where the pairs go to search the house.
