Communism was just a red herring
I wasn't expecting it to be this quirky and funny. It's a movie based on a board game, after all (or alternatively, a remake of Murder by Death, which I have seen and enjoyed). But the comedy does stand up, and it's fun to see the game's absurdities (that you wouldn't know how a person was killed or where sparks of forensic ineptitude, the secret passages, the color-coded names) used as comic fodder. The characters aren't all what I was expecting from their well-known appearances (Mrs. White isn't the maid, for example), so they did give themselves license to change things to make a better story. And the cast of actors is rather good, though my personal favorites are Tim Curry, Eileen Brennan and, obviously, the always surprising Madeline Kahn.
"I'M NOT SHOUTING!...Well, alright, I am...I'm SHOUTING, I'm SHOUTING, I'm SHOUT--" *bang*
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
