Storyline

Ever since the 1930s, no board game has had the lasting worldwide success of Monopoly. Although it started as a protest simulation, the game evolved to be a welcome wish fulfilling fantasy of being a financial high roller in the Great Depression. In this film, the history of the game is retold with its tremendous popular culture influence and the little idiosyncrasies that grown around it. In addition, we are introduced to various players who are compete around the world for the real cash prizes that go far beyond $200. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Monopoly Anyone?
30 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am sure it is the same for most people, but this game reminded me of when I was younger and played it with my friends. The hours of fun (and fighting) that I had with my cousins is what I remember most. I remember the games would take so long, that we would go to sleep and start it back up first thing in the morning. The whole night I wouldn't sleep because I was always worried that they would cheat. I now know why the game use to never end (no one ever thought about reading the rules).

This movie was very rich in history and entertainment. To see it origins and growth over the years, and also its effects on others is very interesting. I actually bought a set of Monopoly that day and have a regular game with my friends. Great movie.
