My kids loved it - a simple kids TV movie
on 20 August 2006
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.
