Storyline

The 2000 remake of "Twenty-One" was an attempt to re-create the success of the game show that precipitated the infamous quiz show scandal.

Perfect substitute for a tranquilizer!
16 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

Ok, so most networks have hopped on the gameshow bandwagon, but this is just sooooooo boring. The music, the cheesy models, MAURY, and the pace, come on! liven it up! The format I realize is taken from the 1950's show, but come on, its 2000. Millionaire and Greed even is so much better.
