Storyline

An updated version of the classic game show. Celebrities, each sitting in a square of a giant tic-tac-toe board, are asked questions by host Tom Bergeron. Contestants must then guess whether the celebrity's answer is correct or incorrect in order to gain control of the square and hopefully get three squares in a row.

Truly one of the worst game shows ever
4 September 1999 | by moviebuf-44See all my reviews

Contrived jokes, poor acting, and some of the biggest morons as game contestants, this show is a perfect example of how NOT to make a game show. It is not so much a game show as a thinly disguised PR machine for both celebrity has-beens that are desperately trying to revive their career and minor celebrities that are still willing to debase themselves and lose whatever remaining shreds of human dignity they have.
