Quiz Show : 4 of 5
Somehow I missed this in the theater, even though it won Best Picture! I'm glad I finally rented it, because this is a very entertaining film. The story does a good job of exploring the relationship of the willing "pawn" of the TV executives who feed the questions and answers and the government investigator (played by Dr. Fleshman from Northern Exposure, doing a very bad accent) who uncovers the nastiness. There are also some interesting scenes with the contestant's family (all college professor/author types). It's weird to think of this as a true story, especially with all the game show craze we have going on now - who knows what Regis could be up to?
