Critic Reviews for Gamers
The more you identify with these guys, the more your laughter may be tempered with 'Ouch.'
It's all done in fun, of course, but hey -- if you're going to tease a bunch of geeks, you may as well do it aggressively and with much enthusiasm.
It took all of about six minutes for me to be scream laughing with the kind of ferocity that draws the attention of neighbors; not annoyed but desperately wanting to enter the room and find out what is so damn funny.
Audience Reviews for Gamers
Funny, hilarious, and down right wrong at times. Great fun.
A genuinely funny mockumentary about DnD style RPG players. Well filmed and well acted with a very decent script, even if this were a studio project. The onyl reason I don't rate it higher is because I forgot I watched this and didn't review it the day or day after I saw it. I had to look through my watching history to be reminded that I had seen this. Considering the longest I go from watching to commenting is overnight, that's a pretty big forget.
RPGers will probably really like this and think it's a great mock for their community. everyone else will be thoroughly entertained and reminded of the RPGers in their lives, though the characters do have a few stereotypes stamped to them.
Stupid annoying characters. The movie is more about the loser players' love lives than the game itself. It takes most of the movie to get to the actual game session, which doesn't play out interestingly enough. I would've liked to see more role-playing action than the sexual and lack-of-career frustrations of the guys involved. I didn't like any of the characters, they were pathetic in an unfunny way. Perhaps some scenes at conventions, game stores and them interacting with other players? How about some fantasy scenes of their characters in the adventure? I liked how the scriptwriters fittingly changed the "DND" name to avoid any copyright issues. There were some nice cameo appearances by 80's actors. Jokes were mostly misses, but I laughed at the nerotic player's obsession with his "Farrah" character, and the resulting chaos when she was killed off in many gruesome ways so she couldn't be resurrected. I couldn't believe they didn't see the game-master's white grand wizard costume resembled a KKK uniform The movie poster made it look like the ultimate geek role-playing comedy, but it fell quite short of that. I doubt I'll rewatch.
