Definitely for the young ones
5 June 2005 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Disney has probably always aimed for a certain demographic but they have a habit of appealing to everyone at once rather by accident or on purpose. Get a Clue which starred the not yet famous, Post Parent Trap Lindsay Lohan falls into the enormously successful Lizzie McGuire, That's So Raven rage of the current youngsters.

Get A Clue is the story of upper side New York's Lexy Gold. Daughter of rather wealthy parents and student at an upper class Private School. She happens upon some juicy gossip when she discovers two of her teachers are having a love affair and she catches them on camera and prints a story about it. The story is picked up by a major newspaper and awards Lexy with a young Journalism award but unfortunately the story causes a stir within the school and with the two teachers involved. Next thing everyone knows, Mr. Walker, the male counterpart of the relationship has disappeared and people are beginning to presume him dead. Detectives are snooping around and Lexy is determined to do some detective work on her own to help find Mr. Walker. What she uncovers with the help of her best friend and two unlikely male allies is a mystery of embezzlement and mistaken identities.

Consider it a modern day version of Nancy Drew. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Disney intended this to be a regular TV Series, with it's general set up and premise. It's a detective show for kids. Mix Murder She Wrote with Clueless and you'll have what it's about. Clueless is stamped all over this despite the title of the film. The downside is the acting is HORRENDOUS...frightening even. Lindsay Lohan doesn't even show any redeeming acting qualities in this film. But for what it's worth which is a KIDS mystery film it's alright. It won't hurt you too badly to watch it with your kids and it has some moral messages thrown in for good measure. Even for Lohan fans, it's not horrible but you won't be blown away by any means. 5/10
