Audience Reviews for Get a Clue!

The title is totally misleading, as it has nothing to do with the book "the westing game" the other title of this abomination (as this is supposed to be an "adaptation", but fails)! With crappy changes to the story, a boring twist, and the worst explosion effect I have ever seen, this could be the worst movie ever made!

Get a clue was an amazing movie. I thought it was just as good as the award winning book, the westing game. I had a great time watching Get A Clue!

I really loved The Westing Game. It is one of the best books I ever read when I was young. However, when I found out there was a movie, I couldn't wait to see this in anticipation. Then I watched it, and I found out Get A Clue is a load of silver screen sh*t. Not to be confused with the 2002 BS, this GAC follows the plot of the murder of... WAIT! If this is a book, why should I spoil the story for you? You would understand the entire plot in book form, so run to Barnes & Noble, get a copy of The Westing Game, read the entire story. Once you're finished, c'mon back. The first problem I have about GAC is that they actually remove some of the characters and mix up other character's names. Also, I think they purposely try to remove some of the parts from the book. One part they removed (I think) was the bomb scene, where Turtle, coincidentally the main character, plants 4 bombs all over the hotel. I think they removed it because Turtle is put as the main character, I don't really know. Also, why couldn't they call this movie The Westing Game? Was Get A Clue incredibly popular at the time? Were the creators drunk? I don't understand! Overall, Get A Clue is a pile of dump. It was a massive dissapointment since The Westing Game was so good. But I'll be nice; Get A Clue does have some impressive performances.
