Under the Boardwalk was recently honored with four Emmy® awards from the Pacific Southwest Chapter of NATAS. The awards include Outstanding Achievement in Documentary, Directing, Editing, and Musical Arrangement/Composition.

"(A) perky, quirky documentary...the film bounces around enjoyably, giving a history of the game, talking to people who love it and chronicling the 2009 Monopoly World Championship.” -- Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times
