Particularly Mrs. Peacock jumping off that building a la Batman... That was one of the worst trailers I've seen in a long time...

That makes me feel sick to the core. I honestly don't know what to say. What have Hasbro done? :cry:

White looks more like Power Girl than White.

Dopily brusque even for an adventure film. (In the words of the New York Times)

I dunno. I kinda liked it. I enjoyed how they had Mrs. White in disguise as a cleaning person/maid. That was a neat tie-in.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

If it hadn't been a Clue trailer, I might've enjoyed it. It was Mrs. Peacock's ridiculous Batman jump that currently has me fuming...

I liked it. I don't really have any interest in the game, but I thought it was a good little movie (a little long for a commercial though). And I agree with Michael, the Mrs. White thing was a good idea.

Uh. I kind of like it. It was a good commercial for what it advertises. In fact, I liked Peacock's jump off the building. Mrs. White's disguise was a cute reference.

Now that I've calmed down a bit, I like the trailer a bit more. At least, it's far better than the "Candyland voice narration" in one of the others...

I thought it was alright for what it was advertising, which is barely clue anyway, so I liked the Mrs. white reference.

You know what... the commercial is starting to grow on me. Its actually very well done. Its just so FAR from what I imagine, or want, Clue to be about!

Love Scarlet at the end. "Bang..."

As much as I don't like that this is a CLUE game, I really liked that trailer. It reminds me of an older spy board game I used to have. I actually LOLed at Peacock's jump from the building.

I'm starting to think that if I ignore the CLUE logo I'll enjoy the game. It's on my Christmas list, so if I ever do get it, I won't be the one paying for it!

I liked it too. Good trailer and I can tolerate the Clue label. This game feels more like a homage than anything. Though, the trailer seems to look better than the game itself.

Just to clarify, I didn't say I disliked it. In fact, I liked almost all of it, except for the White-Peacock superhero stunts, which were a bit too much for me.

I received this game for my birthday recently. We attempted to play that night. I say "attempted" because the instructions confused us and we never did get the game going. We were more successful the following night, when we finally figured out what we were doing. It's not bad, but it's hardly Clue. Still, it was OK for what it is.
