If I didn't know better, I'd think this was some missing Christopher Guest film. It's absolutely hilarious.

The director, Cortney Solomon, is just... amazing. He's like a hybrid of Corky StClair and The Nutty Professor. His lisping, nasal voiceover about how "Deeeeee an deeeee should beeeee a mooooove-eeeeeeee" had me hooked from the start, along with his totally irrelevant tangents about "There's a monthser I REALLY usthed to love, called the mimic..." etc. His description of his first meeting ("There wath a guy acroth the table from me, jutht thtaring at me like THITH") is comedy gold AND offers an insight into how anyone, regardless of a total lack of talent and a speach impediment, can convince people to give them thirty million dollars. Unsurprisingly, he also likes Star Wars a lot.

Then, there's... a bunch of guys. I have no idea where they came from, or what they do, but I guess they're his friends from highschool or something. They really, really like Dungeons and Dragons. Trough talking about it (possibly all they do talk about), let slip a series of hilarious personal insights, like "When I FINALLY got a girlfriend, I had to coerce her into playing, because I didn't want to have to choose", "I met my ex-wife playing D&D", "I was too small to play football, so I had to play (raises eyebrows)... rasslin'", and, my favourite, a very unhealthy looking man with an impressive chin collection who tells us that Dungeons and Dragons helps make us better people. Like him, obviously.

This is a gem. It's the funniest damn thing I've seen in a long time. If you're ever looking for a great comedy, or just something your friends can mock MST3k style, get the Dungeons and Dragons DVD and watch the two documentaries RIGHT NOW. The only thing missing is a long, sad interview with Jeremey Irons.
