Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Clue is the 1985 movie based on characters and objects in the Parker Brothers board game. As it's a slapstick farce of a movie, there is frequent sexual innuendo and double entendres. Male characters gawk at female characters, including a maid dressed in a sexy uniform. One of the characters is a madam in a brothel. There also is drinking, cigarette smoking, and pipe smoking. Although the violence is cartoonish, characters are murdered, and some characters are shown bleeding from the head or chest.

Sexual Content

Mild sexual innuendo and sight gags throughout. One of the characters is a madam in a brothel. The maid dresses in a sexy uniform; male characters often gawk at her breasts and rear end. There is a joke involving a sexual position, which two of the characters show while fully clothed. A man places his hand on a woman's rear end.


Murder done in a kind of slapstick manner, with bodies being dragged around and placed in awkward positions. A man is shown with his head bloodied. Gunshots in the dark. A woman is killed with a rope around her neck. Another woman is found with a knife in her back.


"Damn," "Jesus." Frequent mild sexual innuendo and double entendres throughout. A presumed homosexual character is called "fruit."

Social Behavior

The movie is too cartoonish and slapstick-heavy to have anything in the way of positive messages.
