Ep. 23: Clue

Clue

This week we have special guest Max Rappaport of Complex Sports and The Stepover Pod join us to recast the Parker Brothers classic, Clue. Max specifically requested this movie, although unfortunately, he couldn’t stay for the whole thing, check out the timestamps if you want to jump around.

Clue stars Tim Curry, Michael McKean, Christopher Lloyd, and Madeline Kahn, amongst many talented others. There are plenty of heavy hitters in this movie, but the real star is the dialogue. It reminds me very much of an Aaron Sorkin script. It’s super fast, and every line has a double meaning (or a double entendre). The dialogue also provides the perfect medium for some really great comedic performances. While the plot itself is largely inconsequential, it’s so well constructed that it allowed for several plausible endings to all coexist.
