We didn’t like the “Get A Clue” movie. In the book The Westing Game, a teenage girl named Turtle was very into the stock market. Throughout the book she was researching and checking the market and thought that it had to do with the answer to the Westing Game. But in the movie, the stock market wasn’t even MENTIONED. We also didn’t like how in the movie, Turtle and her partner Chris STOLE the Judge, another heir’s clues. They were also up to more mischief in the movie. In the book, Turtle and Chris were both pretty geek people. In the book, there were three bombs, but in the movie, there were only two. The third bomb was set off by Turtle to cover up the second bomb set of by her sister, Angela. In the movie, it left out that whole part about Turtle protecting her sister. The final parts of a movie are supposed to be the best, but when you don’t like the end, it’s kind of a drag. In the ending of the book, none of the answers to the Westing Game were correct, so all the heirs combined their clues to get their answer. We like teamwork, so for us, it was a happy ending. But in the movie, Turtle just figured out the answer because she already knew almost all the clues. All together, it wasn’t a BAD movie, but we did enjoy the book more. If we were to have just watched the movie, it would have been fabulous! When you have something to compare it to though, you have to choose which one you like best!
