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.

From the folks who brought you Meet the Spartans, Vampires Suck, Epic Movie, etc., now comes The Starving Games - a deliciously humorous spoof of The Hunger Games (and a few other recent films) that can actually stand on its own merits. The casting is impeccable and spot on. Indeed - the female lead claims to have actually gone to the tryouts for the original Hunger Games only to find out that the role had already gone to Jennifer Lawrence. In her own words, "things had now come full circle since this is the part she played in The Starving Games". From the casting to the costumes, names, makeup, and settings, one might think you were watching the real thing. After watching The Hunger Games for the second time on TV only a few days earlier, I couldn't stop laughing. The Starving Games may be a parody but it is also a positive nod to THG.

From the very beginning, when "Kantmiss" volunteers to take her sister's place in the games, to her arrival in the Capital, her way of hiding from or dispatching her opponents, her budding romance with Peter Marlarkey (how appropriate the name alteration) played by the adorable Cody Christian of Pretty Little Liars fame, the laughs and action proceed at a rapid pace. When the two take refuge in a cave, fall asleep side by side, only to wake up surrounded by a sexually letching Hobbit and his leader, is truly an hysterical moment.

I liked the original Hunger Games movie, and I also enjoyed the book. Well this movie spoof was so hilarious that I was laughing out loud several times while I was watching it!

There are appearances by the Harry Potter kids, Avatar characters, and The Expendables in this movie all while poking fun at the Hunger Games. The humor in this movie is definitely geared towards people who are fans of sports because we have the Capital's version of ESPN reporting on the games constantly. The ending was awesome and I wish that Katniss did to Peta what Kantmiss did to Peter in this movie! Plus, having a half-time in the Hunger Games? Genius!

The CGI is a little goofy, but the story is so funny and the acting is great that you will absolutely love this movie!

Check it out!

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.
