Sad people who happen to play DnD, 18 September 2013
Author: james-i-hales from United States

This a is a very well made documentary. I was both informed and entertained by it. Me and my friends enjoyed watching it.

That being said, it's not about Dungeons and Dragons as much as it is about three awkward underachievers who happen to play this game. I've dabbled in role playing games and there is a big number of gamers that aren't making the most of their lives and others who you'd never want to be stuck in an elevator with, but there are also tons of very successful, intelligent, and physically fit people whom play these games.

I would have liked a more well-rounded cast, but this is still a charming piece of cinema.
