About Clue

Before Battleship there was another movie based on a board game, and this one came with multiple endings, introducing the interactivity that has now become commonplace on the web after being pioneered in barely released features like Goodbye Cruel World. Director Jonathan Lynn’s debut feature was not especially popular but it foreshadowed his run of popular 1990s comedies including My Cousin Vinnie.

    Nice job Mr. West, but where’s Mr. Landis?! Surely he has dish.

    Fantastic cast. Lee Ving even. What I remember about the multiple endings and I might be wrong was that they held a contest where you’d see the movie minus the reveal of the killer and fill out a card guessing who the killer was, like the game and drop it off in a box at the theatre. Then the studio would pick one viewer who correctly guessed the killer and they’d win some prize, probably cash. You’d return the following week and find out who the killer was. So if you did guess Miss Scarlet and saw the ending where she was the killer you’d get excited thinking that you might have won only to keep on watching and seeing the first three “endings” were “red herrings” that the movie loved to mention. If I’m right I’d love to ask Mr. Landis if the butler was even a choice as to the killer and thereby nobody could win the prize and then the joke was on us??
