Struggling writer Lodge (Nathan Rice) isn't asking for much: he wants his gaming group to finish playtesting his table-top adventure, rather than killing, looting, and debauching his fantasy world. Desperate to save the integrity of his story from the whims of his players' crazy characters-a horny bard, wild sorceress, and cryptic monk-Lodge allows Joanna (Carol Roscoe), Cass's (Brian Lewis) ex-girlfriend, to join the game. With Joanna's help, the group's characters trek deep into the fantasy game world to retrieve the Mask of Death from the evil necromancer Mort Kemnon (Geoff Gibbs). Will their choices in the game save their friendships in real life . . . or will Mort Kemnon triumph unopposed?
—This is a sure cult classic for any D&D fan.
—This movie is a wonderful follow-up to the Dead Gentlemen's The Gamers, but it is NOT a sequel. It is a terrific, good-natured, and extremely funny satire of roleplaying games and gamers with, amazingly enough, an entertaining and occasionally touching story included. Not that you'll notice. If you're like me, you'll be laughing so hard you'll have to pause the movie. Often.
—It's the perfect movie for anyone who enjoys comedy as well as fantasy films. And, if you have a newbie gamer in your group, make them watch this before they start playing! It's a great introduction to role-playing games and gaming group dynamics in general. Full of fun with a few touching moments here and there, it's a great way to start any game night with a bunch of friends!
—Future classic. Most of the Dungeons & Dragons and live-action role-playing movies I've seen fundamentally don't work. That is, they don't really let us into this strange, insular world and, when they do, they don't convey the appeal. This sequel to The Gamers manifestly does and also makes us laugh -- typically via the hapless, Seth Rogen-like bard who keeps getting himself killed. I laughed throughout and enjoyed myself even when I wasn't laughing. (It is low-budget, but triumphantly low-budget.) And at the end, the pay-off for the gamers was also a pay-off for me.
