Under the Boardwalk is affectionate and inoffensive, but unavoidably disposable.

Under the Boardwalk is, unsurprisingly, a celebration of all things Monopoly, from its role in American pop culture to the national and international tournaments it has spawned.

Feels as wholesome as a Norman Rockwell illustration, hitting just the kind of nostalgic chord the game inspires in those who grew up playing it.

Fascinating revelations on how the 75 year old game adapted to changing times, and originated as anti-capitalist during the Great Depression, then flipped the script. As it takes up the significant challenges of bringing a board game to cinematic life.
