Clue....25 years still a riot!

Clue is one of the cheesiest movies ever. Great stars, stupid dialogue and Madeline Kahn. It is a must see for anyone who played the game as a child. I have passed my love of the game on to my son so we pull out the game board every few weeks and solve a mystery. As a child I remember getting so excited when I got close to figuring out if it was Col. Mustard in the library with the candlestick or Mrs. Peacock in the hall (in my house the hall was not a room but well a hall) with the revolver. I was amazed that you could kill someone with a candlestick. I just loved the secret passages. Anyway, I digress...

The movie has Tim Curry who is just too funny as the butler and Lesley Ann Warren as the femme fatale. It also has that lady from Private Benjamin who was always yelling at Goldie Hawn.

It also has some hilarious quotes like...

Col. Mustard: How many husbands have you had?

Mrs. White: Mine or other women's?

OR

Mrs. White: It's a matter of life after death, now that he's dead I have a life. 

OR THIS...

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.



Anyway, to make a long story short...too late (you have had to seen the movie to get it). Clue is one of my favorite movies even if  Jim falls asleep every time we watch it (you know I think he really does not care who did it, in what room, with what weapon) and Josh looks and me and wants me to explain... what is a socialist mommy? Jess and I love it, so the boys either need to get with the program of we will have to vote them off the island, fire them, kick them out of the house, or any other reality show kiss off thingy. The tribe has spoken!
