Movie Info

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.

Critic Reviews for Get a Clue

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (3)

  • "Get a Clue..." displays style to spare bursting out of the starting gate only to stumble at the finish line, tripped up by the wild tangle of awkwardly knotted loose ends.

  • The high school detective movie actually delivers on a pretty original plot about a missing teacher, plus we get to see Lohan as a little proto-Mean Girl stomping around Manhattan in puffy pink jackets and sunglasses with orange lenses.

  • A DCOM starring Lindsay Lohan as an amateur sleuth and stylish gossip columnist? Get a Clue is every bit as fantastic as it sounds, albeit with a truly confusing central mystery.

  • Get a Clue zips along with the help of an upbeat soundtrack, funky costumes, and Manhattan backdrops designed to inspire location envy.

  • Your run-of-the-mill Disney Channel movie shot on the cheap in 2002 while trying to propel one of their young stars into the heavens.

  • ...a flat-out boring waste of time.

    Cutesy-wootsy.. Lohan is no Sherlock Holmes, that's for sure.

    Forget acting, script, character, reality. You can forget originality too. The only thing this film has going for it - apart from it's 80 minute run time is an alright plot that throws up lots of red herrings before the big reveal at the end - only for this to be ruined by...SPOILER AHEAD The guy (or woman in the alt ending)who framed the guy who faked his own death used the money to buy a really nice jewel, had it made into a brooch then left it in the bank where the mother of the guy who was framed found it and wore it for ten years without knowing until Lohan comes along suddenly knowing about rare gems and recognises it right at the last minute and saves the day and the bad guy (or woman depending on which ending you see) goes to jail, and Lohan decides she might decide to become a detective/reporter.
