Lindsay Drew Gets A Clue
15 January 2009 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

For this Disney Channel television movie Get A Clue, Lindsay Lohan turns Nancy Drew in everything, but name to solve the mystery of her disappearing teacher. Turns out that the teacher has a mysterious past, Ian Gomez used to be a high profile banker who was accused of embezzling ten million dollars from a bank he worked for in Arizona and has been living under an alias and teaching at a fashionable prep school where Lindsay goes. Gomez is also carrying on a romance with fellow teacher Amanda Plummer.

But when Lindsay publishes an article in the school newspaper with his picture, somehow it comes to the attention of the police and other folks seeking to know Gomez's whereabouts.

When Gomez fakes his death and disappears, Lindsay and her friends don't believe it and the four of them, Brenda Song, Bug Hall, and Ali Mukaddam go on the case. It's amazing that the kids seem to be one step ahead of the cops and the other seekers through creative use of the internet. Doesn't say much for New York's finest.

Get A Clue is an amusing teen comedy that has its moments. It's not the best work that the Magic Kingdom ever did nor is it the top tier of Lindsay Lohan's work.
