REVIEW
I have seen parts of this movie on television many times. This marks my first time watching the movie in its entirety. Excellent! I think drama history is becoming one of my favorite movie genres because I learn something in an entertaining way. Not to mention, my husband Ralph Fiennes is in this movie and my other husband, Hank Azaria, though I felt all primary roles were excellently cast.

The movie is compelling in that Herb (Turturro) must admit cheating in order to take down his nemesis, the 21 game show. One of the things that I really could not get past was the character required to participate in a fraud, both of Herb and Charles (Fiennes).

Rated 10 out of 10 stars on IMDb.com.
