Gil Goodson is entering the contest of a lifetime. The Golly Game and Toy Company is hosting a contest to celebrate it's 50th anniversary, and the kid who wins will get 10,000 dollars, a full college scholarship, and unlimited supply of Golly Toys and Games. Does Gil have the smarts to beat 20,000 other kids to win? Part Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, part Westing Game, but nearly as good as either. Dialog felt contrived and fake, and although the plot was an exciting premise, it never quite lived up to it's promises.
