This is a very simple tale involving an aspiring teenage investigative journalist snubbed by the young school newpaper editor. She goes freelance with her chums investigating the mysterious dissappearance of one of her teachers. Was it a jilted lover or something more sinister ? The film is very much a low budget TV movie in the Lizzie McGuire mould, but my kids (boy 10 and girl 12) have watched it five times or so (and that's more than many of their DVDs). So if your kids keep missing it on Sky this DVD is probably worth a fiver a so, or try renting, for one quite sunday afternoon. I have watched it with them once and it was tolerable for an adult in kids company, even amusing in parts. The child actor's and story are ordinary enough for kids to strongly identify with. Similar to the 'Club house detectives' series of films (NTSC DVD only), but with older teenagers and probably not quite so good, if that means anything to you.

This 2002 light humoured drama mystery stars Lindsay Lohan as privileged fashion buff Lexy Gold, who competes for status on the school newspaper with ordinary Jack Downey (Bug Hall), the editor. When a photograph she has taken of her teacher is published in the city's daily paper, he goes missing and his car is found in the River so Lexy and 3 friends decide to investigate. But are they ready for the truth?
The characters are cartoon stereotypes, a mix of ‘Clueless’, ‘Mean Girls’, ‘Legally Blonde’ all trying to be a Scooby Doo low budget version of Spy kids. The script is very much aimed at pre or young teens but there is little here for those much older.
The single disc loads to language selection [5 main European languages] then goes direct to trailers before reaching main menu of play, scene selection, set up [languages/subtitles] and bonus features [an alternate ending]. Rated universal it has all the hallmarks of a Disney movie –people are just so understanding. The youngsters will love it, just leave them to it and they’ll be entranced. A worthy **** but not for adults.

An ok storyline, but very cheesy, a bit over-acted and silly. a good one time watch, but wouldn't want to more than that.

Very neat film for when you just want to relax. The story is easy going, no big drama's. It is funny and nice. I loved watching it.

Get a Clue was about a girl called Lexy Gold who was a columnist in the school newspaper. Lexy and her friends solved the mystery of their missing teacher (Mr Walker) and they found the missing ten million dollars. Our school film club thought that this was a brilliant film, because it was fast paced and we enjoyed the happy ending.

I quite enjoyed watching this with my children. The stroyline is a bit far fetched but all the same interesting. The concept is one of investigative journalism by a group of teenagers, with romance, friendship and sibling rivalry nicely woven into it. The bonus feature on the dvd is the alternate ending, which I felt was not as good as the current ending.
