I really enjoyed that. It’s a classic murder mystery with a great cast of characters. And the comedy generally works well, despite Jennifer Anniston and Adam Sandler who are not two of my favorites.

What strikes me most about it, is that it’s very Clue-like in premise and execution, but it shows how Clue could be expanded outside the mansion to give some excitement and energy which Hollywood Studios seem to think modern audiences require — without changing the spirit of Clue. No need for these secret “houses” and international spies that keep coming out of Hasbro.

They sort of leave this open to a sequel, so I hope we get it. I’d love to see another movie based on this premise.
