When I first started watching this movie, I thought I had made a mistake. And it is true that it is not as polished as a major motion picture. But the writing is great. I laughed my butt off through out the entire movie. If you do not have a basic idea how role playing games work, you my not understand at times, why the characters are acting the way they are. But if nothing else, the Bard and the Monk will keep you laughing. It turned out to be a great movie and I plan to buy it and add it to my collection. Maybe the funniest movie I have seen all year.
