After Kerplunk, Its the Tale of Buckaroo: The epileptic donkey.
I agree its not going to be about the board game. It's just proof that hollywood really does lack any original film Ideas.
A few years ago this started becoming apparent when most films were 80's remakes or computer game adaptions. Now it doesn't need a script.
As long as kids recognize the current film name elsewhere they will make it into a film just to sell. Just think of monopoly as a 2 hour advert to resell the same game we have played for many years just with different street names.
Its shameful but for some reason people flock to them.
Rant over now, I'm off back to work and whilst figuring out how to acquire the rights to coca-cola the musical.
