    Like most people, I played this game as a kid, but lost interest as an adult because the games take forever to finish. After seeing this movie, and finding out that if you play the game by the rules it only takes about 90 minutes to finish a game, I can't wait to play! Monopoly anyone?

    Love the history, the trivia about the game, and all the movie and tv show clips! I'm not a big fan of Monopoly, but this movie kept my interest all the way through!

    An unapologetic love letter to the popular board game. It's also almost - but not quite - something more.

    The film bounces around enjoyably, giving a history of the game, talking to people who love it and chronicling the 2009 Monopoly World Championships in Las Vegas.

    Among the alleged virtues of the game cited by the doc's subjects are its ability to bring people together, its usefulness as a tool to indoctrinate (er, teach) children, and its building of a global culture.
