Overview

Lindsay Lohan stars in this Disney Channel cable-TV movie as Lexy Gold, a rich, spoiled teenage girl. While writing the gossip column of her high school newspaper, Lexy suddenly decided to become an investigative reporter, with a favorite teacher as her "target." When the teacher turned up missing, Lexy and her pals promptly transformed themselves into private eyes, not only following clues but also publishing their findings in the local city paper. All this activity took a toll on Lexy's social life with her less privileged boyfriend Jack (Bug Hall) -- and also aroused the attention of a rather slimy corporate investigator named Falco (Charles Shaughnessy). Evidently the pilot for a weekly series, Get a Clue originally aired on June 28, 2002.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Like many a Disney Channel Original Movie, Get a Clue is of most worth as a showcase for a young talent, in this case Lindsay Lohan. In 2002, Lohan had already shown promise in films, but she hadn't yet hit it big with Freaky Friday. In Clue, she's quite appealing, despite playing the kind of spoiled rich kid type that can very easily become annoying. There's a joyousness and an innocence in her performance, and she adeptly conveys the fact that Lexy isn't a bad person, just someone who hasn't lived enough and is ignorant of what real life is like. Clue also benefits from Brenda Song's denser-thanLexy best friend and from Bug Hall's fine "down to Earth" Jack. What's most interesting, however, is watching the especially fine work that Ian Gomez and Amanda Plummer bring to their supporting roles; Gomez' innocent, childlike joy that breaks through at one point is especially effective. Beyond the actors, Clue gets into problems, as its script is quite farfetched and often predictable, and Maggie Greenwald's standard-issue direction doesn't help matters. But the tween girls that are this film's target audience are totally unlikely to mind any of that.
