My favorite movie is the 1985 murder mystery comedy Clue In my desire to collect all things related to Clue, I purchased the novel tie in, written by Michael McDowell, based on Jonathan Lynn s screenplay Clue the novel is noteworthy for being notoriously expensive, because Clue the movie is amazing, and people like me want to buy everything associated with it I m a little embarrassed to admit how much I paid for it suffice it to say that it was muchthan the original list price of 2.95 My favorite movie is the 1985 murder mystery comedy Clue In my desire to collect all things related to Clue, I purchased the novel tie in, written by Michael McDowell, based on Jonathan Lynn s screenplay Clue the novel is noteworthy for being notoriously expensive, because Clue the movie is amazing, and people like me want to buy everything associated with it I m a little embarrassed to admit how much I paid for it suffice it to say that it was muchthan the original list price of 2.95 The novel is well done, and McDowell s talent is evident The first few pages of the novel delve into the history of Route 41, the fictitious highway off of which Hill House, the mansion that is the setting for the movie, is located It s the kind of detail you couldn t include in a movie, and it makes the novel fun to read.Throughout the novel, McDowell has some great descriptions of the characters One of my favorite lines was Yvette was the ne plus ultra of downstairs maids p.6 This statement is true, as anyone who has seen Collen Camp as Yvette can attest to There s also a great sentence about Wadsworth s tediously detailed recapitulation of the evening p.144 For dedicated Clue watchers like myself, the novel gives us some minor differences from the movie If you haven t seen the movie a million times like I have, this will no doubt bore you to tears In the novel, the cook says that dinner will be ready at 9 30 Who eats that late In the movie, dinner is served at thereasonable time of 7 30 The novel also gives us some details of the scenes missing from the movie, but featured in the trailer, like this exchange Colonel Mustard Why are you screaming Mr Green Because I m frightened Colonel Mustard Of what Mr Green Screaming Another tiny detail from the novel that didn t make it into the film is a line about whoever shot the singing telegram girl seeing the headlights of her car coming up the drive towards the house It makes sense that someone would see the headlights, and thus be alerted that someone else was coming to the house, but I d never thought of it before Clue the movie is famous for having three different endings, each of which featured a different suspect as the killer A fourth ending was also shot, and it s included in the novel The gist of it is that Wadsworth killed everyone, and then poisoned all of the guests, who will die within three hours if they don t get an antidote The police show up, and Wadsworth starts another reenactment of the entire evening, but then steps out the front door and steals a police car He is then attacked by the police dogs in the back seat Presumably, the guests get the antidote in time It s understandable why this ending was cut from the film, but it s interesting to read Presumably the film of it is lost, since it s never reappeared on any of the DVDs of the movie As a Minnesotan, I have to fault McDowell for one error in the book, as he refers to Joe McCarthy as the Senator from Minnesota, instead of Wisconsin p.67 If you re a fan of Clue the movie, you ll definitely enjoy Clue the novel Hopefully you can find a copy somewhere for 2.95 Look, I m wild and crazy about Clue the movie, but also the board game My brother gave me this book and I fairly lost my mind I didn t read it because I expected great

love Clue and this seemed a fun way to start the year Achieved Michael McDowell was the screenwriter story of Beetlejuice and has a number of horror books to his name This novelization is obviously from early in his career, but it s not as bad as some reviews suggest I was mostly interested in those moments that he deviated from film dialogue notably missing was Mrs White s brilliant flames oration It made me wonder if he was working from the screenplay and not the finished, edited film which likely included some improvisation, thanks to those heavy comedic hitters.But it s a lark and I enjoyed myself If you, like me, love Clue, there are worse ways to spend your time 4th alternate ending Highly entertaining and one of the best comedic whodunit mysteries out there I love the whole concept of a group of people going to a house and there are a bunch of murders with the reader trying to figure out what actually happened. Clue It was a dark and stormy night Going into this, I had a faint feeling of dread The book was either going to be so bad, it would ruin the movie for me, or so good, it would ruin the movie for me This novelization nailed it I don t think I ve ever read a movie novelization that so perfectly captured the movie Some of the humor didn t quite carry over it s kind of hard to capture the visual aspect of Wadsworth s explanations at the end, but it did a decent job of it I really only have t Clue It was a dark and stormy night Going into this, I had a faint feeling of dread The book was either going to be so bad, it would ruin the movie for me, or so good, it would ruin the movie for me This novelization nailed it I don t think I ve ever read a movie novelization that so perfectly captured the movie Some of the humor didn t quite carry over it s kind of hard to capture the visual aspect of Wadsworth s explanations at the end, but it did a decent job of it I really only have the one complaint and that is the fourth ending it was pretty awful I m actually glad it was left out of the movie because it was so over the top and cliche and the tone of it was just jarring compared to the other three Famous for its fourth ending, infamous for its outrageous price, Michael McDowell s novelization of Clue is pure fun start to finish It even has some strengths the movie lacks of course, the reverse is true too I give it 5 stars That s one plus two plus two plus one.
