Product Description

Gamers is a comedy about the lives of four slacker friends (and one obsessive interloper) living at home,
- with my parents... it s just temporary... til they die - working in the real world but playing in a fantasy world. Obsessed with a role playing game called Demons, Nymphs
and Dragons these gamers are the subject of this hilarious comedy which chronicles their journey to make it through their horrendous lives while attempting to break the world record for role playing for over 74,558 hours.
The sacrifice, the obsession, the blind dedication...
this is their true story.

Review

Five out of Five Stars. --eFilmCritic.com

Old School Funny! --AOL games

With so little to chuckle about on the big screen lately, I highly recommend getting a copy of Gamers. It's somewhat dark and downright cruel, but it's also freekin' hilarious. A solid 4 ½ cans out of 5 --bumscorner.com

Gamers / 012233163124

My husband and I are big fans of tabletop RPG movies, and we absolutely loved Dead Gentlemen Production's "The Gamers: Dorkness Rising". We'd heard that "Dorkness Rising" was a quasi-sequel to another movie by the same company called "Gamers", and we picked this up, expecting that this was the same movie.

Well, firstly, it's not. "The Gamers" by Dead Gentlemen Productions is here: The Gamers. So if you've been redirected here looking for the prequel to "Dorkness Rising", run away as fast as you can.

This movie is utterly horrible and without any amusing lines whatsoever. The "plot" is that the same group has been playing the tabletop RPG "DND" (Dungeons, Nymphs, and Dragons) for a record-breaking number of hours, and a TV crew has been dispatched to interview the players before their big record breaking night. The entire movie consists of watching the "interviewees" talk about their lives (which are played up to be as pathetic as possible) - there is almost ZERO gaming shown on camera. Literally, I think maybe, MAYBE, there's a combined 2 minutes of gaming in this movie, and that's largely flashbacks.

Here are the things that are "funny" about this movie:

- One of the players has a day job extracting semen from horses. Cue visual gag.

- One of the players has a day job recording custom songs for kids, including a song for a kid named "Dick".

- One of the players took his lactating cousin to the prom. Cue visual gag.

- One of the players hires a black woman to make him a "Gandalf the White" costume and she somehow fails to realize that her "original design" looks EXACTLY like a Klan robe.

Are you an RPGer? Then this movie isn't for you.

Are you a fan of comedy? Then this movie is definitely not for you.

I rented this with low expectations to begin with, but since I was a roleplayer I figured there would be some decent "inside jokes" about gaming and it might be at least enjoyable.

WRONG!

The very little it does have on actual gaming is just juvenile and plain stupid. I've heard it compared to Napoleon Dynamite...not even close. I found absolutely nothing enjoyable in this and would sue the makers for the time back if I could. It really is that awful. I think I softly chuckled at maybe two or three little bits, but those are quickly forgotten under the deluge of lame attempts at humor everywhere else in the film.

Don't waste your money, don't waste your time. Please....

This movie is not only not funny, it's also mean. It doesn't parody the genre or the gaming hobby, it just makes fun of it. If you are a gamer, this movie will probably offend you. If you're not a gamer, you won't be offended, but neither will you be amused.

It's supposed to be about a group of roleplayers setting a new record for hours spent on a single campaign, but it's actually a painful pseudo-documentary about crude, pathetic losers who don't even like each other. It panders to the worst stereotypes about gamers, because roleplaying is an easy target to pick on. There's really very little about actual gaming. The movie mostly focuses on bad attempts at low-level humor.

If the phrase "splattered with horse semen" revolts you, run.

Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.

Worst.
Movie.
Ever.

This is not the Dead Gentlemen's "The Gamers", "The Gamers 2: Dorkness Rising" or the soon to be released "Gamers 3: Hands of Fate". They are all awesome, this is not they.

However,

For me, Gamers was another rare find at the local video store (back when such things still existed) where a hasty search for a bad movie struck cinematic gold.

As an avid and long running rpg enthusiast, I'm always on the lookout for any new (or new to me) movie in the fantasy genre that properly inspires the 1980s heyday of low budget fantasy film a la the Gor or Deathstalker series.
For some time now, movies that actually delve into the tabletop rpg subject have taken to doing so in a postmodern "breaking down the 4th wall" manner where you have the players and their characters represented in a dual scene and story format (see DG's The Gamers).

This film deals almost exclusively with the players themselves and their exaggerated antics. Much of the humor is crude, absurd, over the top and (in my opinion) not entirely off the mark. Are the characters stereo types and largely offensive? Yes, and that's where most of the comedy comes from. On a related note, there are also quite a few moments of more subtle humor that become increasingly funnier by being juxtaposed with bodily function jokes.

Watching the extras on the DVD and following the film makers post production interviews has led me to believe they are not gamer haters as is often an accusation I see leveled at this movie in criticism, but that the film does take a satirical and hilarious look at the people who interact in the hobby of table top gaming.

Also, if you happen to enjoy the soundtrack, as I did, there is a separate album available with Kevin Sherwood performing the background bits and montage pieces which I highly recommend as well.
