Trivia

A song by the band Prozzak, "Get a Clue", appeared in the film and the music video was shown on Disney Channel at the time of its release. The name of the band was changed to "Simon and Milo", the characters depicted in the music video so their band name would not be associated with the drugs. See more »

Goofs

During the last scene when Lexi (Lohan) takes her friend's video camera and is using it, the shot clearly shows that the video camera in her hand is not on. The screen is black. See more »

Very short, very fast paced, but very fun
26 September 2005 | by TheArgentWolfSee all my reviews

I don't know if it was because the film was so good the time flew past, or just the pace of the storyline got me engrossed, but Get A Clue seemed to be shorter than a lot of Disney TV movies. However, the script was well wrote that length didn't matter, because the content was pretty good.

Having missed the first ten minutes, I didn't quite understand Lindsay Lohan and Brenda Song's characters, but however they were supposed to be, they played the part well. Bug Hall was a good actor too, and the chemistry between him and Lohan was brilliant.

The ending seemed a little premature though, as if it wasn't really thought through. All in all, however, this is a good film, but I'd mainly recommend it if you're a Lindsay fan.
