As a mystery CLUE is weak. As a comedy it's OK at best. I never laughed or even smiled once, but I was mildly entertained. Then I look Amazon and I was shocked...shocked to see that with 751 reviews CLUE has 4.5 out of 5 stars!!! What the hell? Did I miss something completely? I admit there were a few cleverly written lines, but overall it was pretty mediocre. I can see 3 stars maybe, but 5 stars is completely insane. Five stars is what you give UGETSU or BACK TO THE FUTURE, not CLUE.
Watch if you want, I don't care, but in the remainder of my life I will probably watch the similarly themed THE PRIVATE EYES a dozen more times, but I will never revisit CLUE. If I do it'll just be to scope out that maid's breathtaking cleavage.
