A very smart and funny documentary
5 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

This was a truly great film. I have watched most of ESPN's 30 for 30 series and this was a standout. Tackling a tough subject matter like Fantasy sports (perhaps one of the most visually uninteresting topics known to man), the film merged hyper-stylized interviews, archival, stop motion animation and hilarious (and Fantastic) recreations to create a fun romp, that tells the largely unknown tale of this game's founding, and makes for a truly unique viewing experience.

I only wish that the film were longer and were able to go into even more about what Fantasy has become and where it will go, but the filmmakers crafted the film around the "Founding Fathers" and it comes full circle when we see Dan Okrent (the creator) still playing his game.

A very well done and creative documentary.
