Board Game Nights

Board games have a surprisingly long history and have been a main form of entertainment until recently (see the links at the bottom of the post). Some ancient games include senet, the Royal Game of Ur, Go, Mancala, chess, and checkers. With television, video games, and the internet available, board games often take a back seat to other entertainment, but, sometimes, they get to come back… (more)

Eh.. too cute. Check out "Hot Scots' with the Three Stooges. I love these slapstick ones where they are in the "Haunted House". This one just tries too hard being "cute". I didn't even finish the movie.

I'm not really big on mysteries, but I rented this for the pure curiosity of it. Loved the all-star cast, and the storyline was pretty good, but it was way too slow-moving for me. Ironically almost everyone else here has mentioned how hilarious this movie is. For me it wasn't nearly funny enough.

Though funny in many places, this film was just too frenetic for me. Murder by Death is way better.

For some reason my very Christian family had a copy of this on VHS growing up...we had the board game, too, & maybe my parents didn't think we'd get the jokes. So I've seen it at least 100 times over the years, & it is totally fantastic every time I watch it, including a few days ago. It's a combination of visual elegance, impeccable comic timing, a great script...if I were an actual film reviewer, I would say something like "A gut-bustingly hilarious period piece that serves as a celebration of character flaws & human perversity." If you want something more sentimental, though, it was years & years for me that Mr. Green was the singular voice in my entire universe saying he felt no personal shame about being a homosexual. Incredible film, too cool for an Oscar. :-] CR

Professor Plum: "What are you afraid of, a fate worse than death?"
Mrs. Peacock: "No, just death, isn't that enough?"

If you've yet to check out this 1985 cult classic, Clue is a reimagining of the Parker Brothers' infamous board game of the same name that finds six strangers and a butler embroiled in multiple murders that they must solve before the police arrive. Was it Miss Scarlet with the candlestick in the library or Colonel Mustard with the rope in the billiard room? You'll have to watch and find out. The casting is pure perfection, especially Madeline Kahn who plays the hilarious Mrs White. And, the dialogue is witty and packed full of double entendre, which I love. I have more fun on rewatches because I always discover something that I didn't see before, and it is best watched with a bunch of friends so you can quote your favorite moments as the movie goes along. Clue is one of my favorite films that I can always count on when I need a good laugh.

If you love is movie like I did when back when, you should watch Psych, season 7 ,1000 clues. It's a great homage to this movie, just as as funny.

Not exactly hilarious, but quite amusing when we get to the three "surprise" endings.

It injects laughter into the "dark and stormy night" cliche.

A wonderful cast with some comic genius's flounder under a terrible director! The script isn't great either but with a different person at the helm, it could've been shaped into a camp cult like classic. Instead, there are pauses, bad editing and an awful soundtrack. I was hoping for a 'Murder By Death' type of result. I could only get through about 1/3 of the movie before I turned it off. What a dud and it had to have been difficult for that cast to make it work, wasted opportunities right and left.
