Customer Reviews

This is a funny movie and I enjoyed it very much.
Amazon Customer
Just didn't like it way to corny and the random people and things didn't finish it just couldn't get into it.
Evett Voyles
Took three sittings to get through the entire movie, and it is not a long movie.

I rate films on how well I enjoy them and not on their quality. There were scenes which admittedly had me ROFL. The film does not only satire "The Hunger Games" but also satires other films as well as modern society, an aspect which I liked. The humor was indeed stupid and even crude at times. One line from the film about a past game:

"No one could anticipate Oprah would eat all the other contestants."

The speech given at the end by the Samuel L. Jackson character actor had me in tears. Maiara Walsh who played the star Kantmiss Evershot reminded me of Zooey Deschanel more than Jennifer Lawrence. The actual film is short as it has a sad 10 minute blooper reel at the end.

I enjoyed the film, it reminded me of "Your Highness" minus some of the crudeness. Other films spoofed include, Oz, Potter, LOTR, Avatar, Avengers, Expendables, plus more.

Parental Guide: No F-bombs, but does have a lot of adult language. Censored sex scene. Male streaker with rear nudity.

My daughter just loved this movie. She cracked up the entire time she was watching it. Great spin off of Hunger Games.

This is a spoof on the Hunger Games. It is ridiculously funny. It is mindless fun and follows the Hunger Games almost scene by scene. My kids thought it was hysterical and watched it over and over (although there were a couple of questionable scenes--sexual innuendos, etc.). Great for teens and young adults (or those who appreciate teen humor) who have already seen the Hunger Games.

As you can probably tell from the title, this is NOT the big-budget adaptation of the hit YA book starring Jennifer Lawrence. This is actually a spoof of that series, and I have to admit that it’s a pretty good one. From what I’ve read and heard, most people either love or hate spoofs...there’s not much gray area in between. For me, I enjoy them for the most part and will continue to watch them as long as they’re made. Although not perfect, THE STARVING GAMES is a fun spoof, chocked full of quirky gags and raunchy humor.

I suppose I should preface this review by stating this: if you don’t like stupid humor, then don’t watch this film. You will hate it. But if you like oddball comedy, like Monty Python or Benny Hill, then you should definitely give this one a look.

THE STARVING GAMES is not really low-budget (IMDB estimates the budget at $4.5 million), but it won’t win any awards for elaborate special effects or set designs. That is part of the film’s allure, though. Many of the gags and jokes would simply fall flat if more realism had been put into the film.

But although I found this film entertaining, it does have a few flaws. For example, some of the attempts at humor are simply not funny. Toilet humor is way overdone in this day and age, and it surprises me that directors still resort to it. It fails here.

Still, THE STARVING GAMES does not pretend to be anything other than a zany, homage-bending ode to many recent staples in cinematic pop culture. Many movies are spoofed here, not just THE HUNGER GAMES. I particularly enjoyed seeing THE EXPENDABLES show up, and the actor that did the Sylvester Stallone impersonation is amazing.

This film will not be for everyone, but if you enjoy the SCARY MOVIE franchise, then put this one on your list. The film is available now in a variety of formats.

This was one of the funniest parody movies I have ever seen. Whomever made it really needs to make a couple more.
