As documentaries go it's a puff piece on Monopoly, mostly narrated and presented with awe and respect. Not that there are stones to overturn or skeletons to de-closet, but it's not exactly brimming with tension, despite the set up and march to the 2009 world champs.
Good to see a Kiwi rocking it on the global stage, but apart from that one person who was quite laid back the rest of the 'athletes' were mostly dislikeable and seemed to contradict…
Low expectations that this film is somehow the worst movie Disney ever made means that you will be surprised to find that it is not. I think Cars 2 was awful and I really disliked it, whereas this I expected to hate but just found myself mildly entertained by it.
The problem with this film is essentially with the reviewers spewing hyperbole. It's an average film with an average cast and an average plot.
It's not good. that doesn't make it bad.
