The review of this Movie prepared by AJ

A humerous adaption of the popular board game. Six people known only by their given aliases: Mr. Greene (McKean); Miss Scarlett; Col. Mustard (Mull); Mrs. Peacock; Prof. Plum (Lloyd); and Mrs. White (Kahn) are invited to a mansion of a one Mr. Boddy, who has been blackmailing them and his former butler, Wadsworth (Curry). When Boddy is killed during this meeting, a search ensues to find out who killed him. Quickly, because Wadsworth phoned the police to expose Boddy and they're on their way. Each theatre showed one of three different endings. On Video and T.V. all three endings are shown.
