BBFC Reason
Contains mild language, violence and sex references

BBFC Ratings info
CLUE is a 1985 murder mystery comedy, based on the board game Cluedo, in which a group of guests are invited to a remote mansion where a series of murders occur. Language: The film contains occasional mild bad language (for example, 'bastard', 'God, 'damn'). Violence: There are some scenes of violence when characters are killed. The methods of murder include being hit over the head with a wrench, being strangled with a noose, being stabbed in the back, being struck over the head with a candlestick, and being shot with a gun. Although there is occasional sight of blood on or beneath the corpses, the killings themselves are undetailed and unrealistic and the overall tone is comedic and light-hearted. Sex: There are some mild sex references, including a doctor being blackmailed for having inappropriate sexual relations with some female patients and a suggestion that one character runs a brothel, which is referred to obliquely as 'a house of ill-fame' or 'a specialised hotel'. There is also a euphemistic reference to 'schtupping' when a woman asks another woman whether she was jealous about her husband's infidelity. The film also contains scenes in which adult characters smoke cigarettes.

Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
One of the characters states that he is being blackmailed due to his homosexuality. Two characters are depicted passionately kissing corpses in an attempt to make them seem living to an observer. A psychiatrist admits that he lost his license due to affairs with his patients. PG for some suggestive material including sexual references and for violence, brief language and drinking Lesley Ann Warren wears a night dress, her nipples are clearly visible and obviously No underwear, where tho very briefly a pubic area is shown in Shadow... One of the characters is a French maid who wears a revealing dress. Several of the other characters stare noticeably at her cleavage. At one point when she sits, her skirt flies up and her underwear is shown; the underwear is plain and modest. One character starts to lift her skirt flirtatiously, and she pulls away from him. Professor Plum and Miss Scarlet pretend to kiss passionately while sensually wrapped around each other in a sexual position, in an effort to distract another character. Professor Plum also attempts to demonstrate a sexual position with another character. Lots of sexual humor and references and double entendres, much of which can definitely go over a kid's head - such as references to flies and being "exposed". A lot of staring at cleavage, two instances of characters grabbing a female's butt. There are discussions of affairs and prostitutes, and various references to sex; one of the characters runs a prostitution ring. Mild-to-moderate sexual content. While there are no explicit sex or nudity, some female characters show a lot of cleavage, which other characters are often shown staring at (played for comedy); in a scene there is some passionate kissing and groping (again played for laughs, as the characters are trying to distract a cop); some sexual humor and references to topics like homosexuality, adultery, prostitution. Nearly enough to be a pg 13 movie.

Violence & Gore
Violence & Gore Reason
A gun is used to shoot at various things in the house, including a door lock and chandeliers; one man is slightly wounded by one of these shots. A woman hits a man in the crotch with her knee out of anger. One character admits that she has been married five times, with some of her husbands dying or disappearing; other characters suspect she may have killed them. A hysterically screaming woman is slapped to calm her down, and this is later re-enacted by another character. PG for some suggestive material including sexual references and for violence, brief language and drinking A woman is stabbed in the back (seen from in front of her). When her body is found, there is little blood seen. Her body is comedically carried to others places in the house, and is dropped at one point. A man is killed by being hit on the head with a wrench, slightly offscreen. His body is later comedically posed. A woman is shown being strangled to death by a rope noose in one scene, and again in flashbacks. An off-duty police officer is killed by being hit over the head with a lead pipe. A woman is shot to death (no blood), and the shooting is seen again in flashbacks. Two men shoot at each other, with one of them killed (no blood). A man is shot at, pretends to be dead, and is later bashed on the head with a candlestick. His corpse depicts lots of blood on his forehead.

Profanity Reason
One character refers to homosexuals often being called fruits. Bastard is said once. "Oh my God" used several times.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking Reason
Alcohol is spilled on a corpse to make him appear drunk rather than dead. Various characters casually drink alcohol including cognac and whiskey, and some are occasionally seen smoking - unsurprising, as the film is set in 1954.

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
Vicious guard dogs are depicted in the opening scene and one later scene. The characters are served a dinner in which the main course is later revealed to be something some viewers may find disgusting. Various characters are unnerved by creepy attics, cellars and darkened rooms in an old mansion, particularly after a power failure. The whole plot revolves around several murders, and some people may find it scary. However, the movie is a black comedy, and has a very light tone. The movie is a black comedy/murder mystery; while the tone is comedic, many characters die by being shot, stabbed and strangled (non-graphic). Characters which viewers may find likable are ultimately revealed to be the murderer in different endings, which may disturb or upset some viewers.
