Watch this and you'll want to play Monopoly

This is a fun, quirky documentary all about the classic board game. If you like Monopoly, or documentaries (especially ones like Wordplay, Spellbound, or King of Kong), you'll love this movie. And guaranteed, even if it's been a few years, after watching you'll want to get out your set and play again. And better yet, it's narrated by Zachary Levi, star of TV's "Chuck!"

Under the Boardwalk

This is a great movie and both my 8 year old son and I loved it! It gives a fresh perspective on the game and how far you can go. I highly recommend it!

Wonderful Documentary

Insanely interesting, lots of funny people compete in the national monopoly championship. This is even interesting to people who have only played the game once or twice, or have never finished a game.
