| Fantastic performances salvage a standard whodunnit
I've been annoyed at most of the bad reviews I read of this movie, because none of them understand what it's all about. It's true; the script is not actually that great. What makes it great is how everything is delivered. The cast is fantastic in playing each part as a cliché, even when the lines are far from it. Curry plays the role with so much ham that it's understood why the script is like this. This is a play, not a movie. I can understand not being in the mood for this film. But I can't understand not appreciating these fantastic performances. Another person pointed out that this film needs to be seen in widescreen. This is correct-the movie reaches another level of greatness by seeing it in proper aspect-ratio. And I've never seen Colleen Camp looking this fantastic.

Wadsworth: Is everything ready?
Yvette: Oui, Monsieur.
Wadsworth: You have your, um, instructions.


Goofs

The candlesticks change location on the table throughout the dinner scene in the dining room. The candlesticks are usually in the middle of the table, but in close up shots, the candlesticks are moved away from the characters to the left or right side, most likely to see the actors' faces when they talk.


Crazy Credits

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.


Alternate Versions

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.
