VIDEO: Get a Clue (2002)

Flash back to when Lindsay Lohan wasn’t a washed-up 26 year old, with Get a Clue, a Disney Channel Original Movie where Lindsay plays Lexy Gold, who despite the name, is not a stripper. Instead, she’s a prep school fashion queen who investigates the disappearance of one of her teachers, and solves a mystery with the help of best friend Brenda Song, who you may know from The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, where she played pretty much the same character (and this time on the Agony Booth, that statement is correct!).

  • I remember the only time I would switch to the Disney Channel was if a classic Disney movie was on or if Recess was on. I don’t know what you thought of it or if you even saw it but it was quite a good show to me. It made playtime feel like the real world just limited to the playground. Plus the amount of characters was a big factor too, not just with the main 6 characters.

    This however was why I used to hate live action features on kids channels even from a young age (Holes was a big exception). Kind of odd how the “childish” cartoons are usually better written, acted and less contrived than the live action specials.

      I feel like the people behind the cartoons have to try harder to be taken seriously, so they put more effort into appearance, story, acting, etc.
      I was a PBS kid until I was eight (which was when my family finally got cable), and the shows I remember the best and hold up the best tend to be the cartoons. Arthur, for example, is a show I can still watch and enjoy.

      I remember Recess; I haven’t watched it in years though.

    Great review, I was laughing at the clothing jokes, its hard to believe stuff like that was ever in style.  And America’s Next Top Model was pretty sad except for Tyra Banks, she is amazingly humble and really genuinely nice.  Lindsay Lohan’s career seemed to derail after Herbie: Fully Loaded (I’m sure no one wants to be reminded of that movie), so its hard to take her seriously.  I also don’t know why so many movies feature rich kids, it is impossible for 99.995% of the audience to relate to that, since most people have to work and live on budget and in moderation.

      I disagree about Lindsey Lohan’s career. Herbie: Fully Loaded was actually a hit. Not a huge blockbuster hit, but it did make a nice profit and let’s face it, it was never intended to be anything but one last attempt to make a buck off Lindsey before she finished puberty and the Disney Marketing Machine had to spit her out. But I digress. 

      Nothing derailed Lindsey Lohan’s career except for Lindsey Lohan. But if you ask me, going blonde was the beginning of the end.

        All the drama about her depresses me. She’s clearly very talented, and from interviews that she did, she seems like a nice person. 

        I wish the media would just leave her personal life alone and let her recover from whatever she’s going through. What is the appeal of constantly getting snapshots of a person who is clearly sick and struggling?

        • The_Stig

          You and me both, Questions. But she feeds off the attention. Without it, she’s nothing and she knows it. I think the appeal of it (for us) is that everybody loves a train wreck. The only thing the press in particular loves more than a hero is to see a hero fall. 

          It’s pretty sickening.

    Heh.  Okay, big points for popping the Hyperbole Balloon there in the beginning.

    As for this film… um… eh?  Growing up, we never had the Disney channel because it was a premium channel and screw that noise.  Of course, this was also back in the 80s when they didn’t do content like this.  So, I have absolutely no connection to any of the shows you mentioned and have only heard of about half of them, and have only seen clips of about a quarter of them.  In other words, I have absolutely no context and no idea what you’re talking about.

    Still, the review was a lot of fun, and you have my sympathies for your guilty pleasures.  Not that I have any room to talk…

    • FullofQuestions1

      You’re pretty lucky to not know what they are. I was born in 1994, so those shows were ridiculously popular by the time I was ten. Apart from Kim Possible or Phineas and Ferb, which is more current and way more awesome, you’re not missing anything by not being familiar with them.

      • The_Stig

        I can’t believe nobody’s ever commented on your excellent posture. 🙂

      • Cristiona

        My goodness.  Now I feel really old.  I’d mock your generation for lousy television shows, but as someone who religiously watched Hunter, Airwolf, Simon & Simon, and Knight Rider, I don’t think I’m in any position to cast aspersions.  And the less said about the actual cartoons, the better.  I mean, I was one of five people who loved Rude Dog and the Dweebs.

    If you ask me, The Disney Channel peaked with Avonlea.

    My condolences on the loss of some of your sanity while watching this Full. How this kind of project got off the ground from Disney’s story by committee executives is beyond me.
    You were really funny with this review actually making me snort Diet Pepsi out my nostrils when i tried not to burst out laughing when you mentioned that the one actors accent was like if someone from Boston was trying to do a guy from NYC. LMAO!!  Why I laughed was because I actually did that in reverse. I was a NYC guy in Boston at a double header and sufficiently sauced then started doing a really bad Boston accents.  Ooofah!

    But yeah, your comedic timing was really good in this Which cracked me up, oh and don’t worry about regretting watching bad programming, I watched 70’s anime before it was ever popular here in the states and even lost my animation career over it and i’ll never regret the choices I made.

    Funny Review.  Omedetoh Gosaimasu Full-San! (Pronounced “FuLL-LU SAHN” )p
