Get a Clue is a Disney Channel movie starring a pre-fame, post-Parent Trap Lindsay Lohan. It was made for ten year old girls to enjoy, and features a lot of frilly, high-tech gadgets that don’t exist in the real world. Having said that, any expectation for a quality movie went out the door from its opening moments, and all I wanted was something to keep me entertained while completing other work.

This is yet another teenage detective film, with rich New Yorker Lexy Gold (Lohan) investigating the disappearance of her teacher. This was the same teacher that the young journalist recently busted for fooling around with another teacher (in a sideplot that never makes much sense), and since the fashion aficionado knows that there’s more to the story than what is in the papers, she and her friends begin to investigate. The group proceeds to blatantly violate the Fourth Amendment over and over again, all while slowly unraveling the mystery.

All the way up to and including the “Scooby Doo” finale, Get a Clue is a harmless but unimpressive feature that does what most Disney Channel movies do. They provide sufficient entertainment for a young kid, but it’s the kind of material that even a child would find a bit too cheesy at points. Other than that, it’s just so generally formulaic and unsurprising that there’s not much point to watching it.
DVD: There’s a twenty-two minute “Alternate Ending” that places another character in the villain’s spot and changes almost nothing.
