Storyline

Few dungeon masters can make the game come to life better than John Francis. Dwarves, Mages and Barbarians jump right off of their character sheets whenever he sits down at the gaming table of frisky suburbanite parents, Linda and Brandon. John Francis' best friends, sailor-mouthed John Alex and thoughtful jock Jason, bring roguish swagger and knightly nobility to the game. And the object of John Francis' affection, the feisty Tara, provides all the Half Elven Double Princess backstory they could ever need. But when Jason enlists to go to Iraq and with the relationship with Tara going nowhere, it may be time for John Francis to hang up his twenty sided dice and take a job on the other side of the country. However, John Francis is about to discover that leaving will prove tougher than the Tomb of Horrors. OF DICE AND MEN is a blisteringly funny and deeply affecting look at the things that truly matter in life. Written by Kelley Slagle

A great representation of gamers!
28 October 2018 | by eridajSee all my reviews

Love this movie, and the play it's based on. It has the best, most honest portrayal of tabletop gaming that I've ever seen. If you're sensitive to swearing, this might not be the best movie for you, but it fits the character incredibly well. Anyone who has done tabletop gaming has known someone who fits each of these characters very well. I love it, and highly recommend watching!
