"Yes, it's a movie based on a board game, but unlike the horror show that was Battleship, this one is actually worth watching. It features some of the absolute greats of comedy (Madeline Kahn! Tim Curry! Christopher Lloyd!) and is the very essence of a, to use movie critic speak, madcap romp. The movie roughly follows the premise of the board game, in that the characters — Professor Plum, Mrs. Peacock, Colonel Mustard, et. al. — are trapped in a mansion and trying to figure out who among them killed Mr. Boddy. There are multiple endings, red herrings, farcical chase scenes, and way too many awesome quotes to list here. Alright, fine — I'll give you one of my faves:
'You lure men to their deaths like a spider with flies!'
'Flies are where men are most vulnerable.'"
