Don't be deceived
4 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Same Movie appears under 2 titles: Get a Clue AND The Westing Game. It is the same cast AND the same movie--just the packaging was different. I ordered the first one (Horrible)so thought the second one might be better. SURPRISE!!! Same movie. I teach the Westing Game, which IS an EXCELLENT book, but just a cursory viewing of the movie revealed over 144 mistakes (Things that were in the book that changed in the movie...) If you're a purist, DON'T watch this! I walked away saying, "Did they even READ the book?" My biggest complaint is the Character of Sam Westing. The movie made him look like a big jerk to Turtle instead of the friend he truly was...
