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

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.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid at all cost....even free July 25, 2008
By The ExT
Format:DVD
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....

1.0 out of 5 stars Gamer Hater August 22, 2008
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Painful May 25, 2008
By Bryant
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars It has it's moments, but is a little rough November 2, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of gaming and was looking forward to this film.

When the jokes work, it is funny. But some of the pacing in the film is a bit slow. I would like to see a re-edit of the film to structure the film a bit differently.

1.0 out of 5 stars 0 of 5 stars. Truly a horrible film. December 26, 2009
Format:DVD
0 of 5 stars. -1 star, if possible.

This is an RPG "comedy" written by someone who never played an RPG, and who simply is not funny. The movie has NO understanding of RPGs, gamer culture, nor humor. It is perhaps the worst film I have ever watched, and certainly the dumbest, stupidest, most idiotic film I've ever watched. This film seriously gave me an upset stomach.

The premise of this film is a mocumentary of Gamer culture, but the film displays no knowledge of RPGs or Gamers. The only reference that the clueless writer is aware of is that sometimes RPG characters die, and all the RPG jokes in the film are based on this concept. The rest of the film is based on the gamers who are all shallow, undeveloped pseudo-cliches who yell at each other, and are cruel to each other in between meaningless, poorly developed scenes which often don't support any plot.

Besides the complete lack of any understanding of RPGs or Gamers, the humor in this film is horrible. It is the most obnoxious, super-low-brow, immature, juvenile, insultingly dumb humor I've ever seen in a film. This film displays the worst comedic timing I have ever seen, and the director stretches out bad jokes over minutes. I do recall three jokes which made me smile, and one of the gamers Swinger parents made me laugh, but the bulk of this film is VERY bad jokes (dull, immature, and unsophisticated), which are forced on the observer for near unbearable amounts of time.

To summarize the humor, it seems like the inane prattle between two 12 year olds with obvious problems with their attention spans, intelligence, and basic awareness. Besides the complete lack of anything clever about RPGs or Gamer culture, this film fails to deliver in any way imaginable.

This is what happens when you take The Big Bang Theory, but remove any trace of charm. Characters are unlikeable cliches and awful to each other, and the premise is flimsy. Read more
