How to tell you’re a nerd: Method 174 (or “Monkeys’ brains, though popular in Cantonese cuisine, are not often to be found in Washington D.C.”)


You recently realized that you can recite large sections of dialogue from the Tim Curry comedy Clue because you have seen it over 100 times since childhood.

  1. i absolutely love CLUE. i checked it out just about 45 days ago from the library, such perfection in every scene indeed!

    • I totally agree. It’s one of the few films that has the precise timing of a comedic stage play, but still makes a great film comedy. The casting and performances are tremendous. Decades later, it still holds up.
