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. Written by
You want to see the movie "THE Gamers" by Dead Gentlemen Productions. This is not that movie. This movie is not funny. It is a waste of time.
All of the good comments here seem to be written by (poorly disguised) false third parties. The people who made this movie seem to be attempting to synthesize fake interest.
This movie is not a well done mockumentary. Comparisons to "Spinal Tap" or Christopher Guest are insulting.
The movie is so mean-spirited that I cannot imagine anyone familiar with the subject matter finding it funny. Being able to laugh at yourself is an important quality, but if you are the ones being lampooned in this manner, you'd have to hate yourself to enjoy it.
The movie is not offensive because of its grand satire of taboo topics but because of its constant pathetic banality.
