Fun adaptation of the board game that actually dates fairly well. Cast is game with McKean and Warren having the most impact save Coleen Camp who makes an impression of a more sensual nature. Any film in which Jane Wielden gets gunned down while delivering a singing telegram can't be all bad.
Never really thought about this movie before, but it's surprisingly clever and fun. Knowingly arch performances and script. At any rate, it's interesting to see that board game movies don't all have to be Battleship.
Laugh out loud from start to finish. Smart humor. Relies very heavily on slapstick . Tense and suspenseful. Murder mysteries never get old and when done correctly are hard to dislike. One of my favorites. Tim Curry is a God in my eyes. Greatest character actor ever.
Extremely clever, witty, and well written. A very true testament to slapstick comedy and a piece brilliant in a lot of ways. Also, a terrific performance by Curry. I found the dialogue to be a little fatiguing after a while and while it's not necessarily my cup of tea, it's really something.
This kind of frenetic juggling of characters depends on punchy dialog and snappy editing. It's .... close.... but just not quite snappy enough to keep all the balls in the air. A few 'drops,' though, don't ruin the movie. It's fun. Tim Curry plays a great manic character, and Leslie Ann Warren, more than any other performer in the movie, creates a character who is believable, sexy, and archly funny.
Tim Curry steals the show but a mediocre one it is. Some genuinely good laughs to be had but the majority of the gags are simplistic sexual innuendos and slapstick. The ending was played out in an interesting manner which I quite liked.
