Storyline

Set in the most depressing corner of a post-apocalyptic future, our heroine Kantmiss Evershot (Maiara Walsh) volunteers to take her manipulative younger sister's place in the seventy-fifth annual "Starving Games." In doing so, she must leave behind her smoldering just-a-friend Dale (Brant Daugherty) and team up with the geeky baker's son Peter Malarkey (Cody Allen Christian) in a fight for her life. But wait, there's more! She could also win an old ham, a coupon for a foot-long sub at a six-inch price, and a partially eaten pickle! In The Starving Games, Friedberg and Seltzer's sixth cinematic spoof of box-office hits, the prolific parody duo has its sights trained on the adventure blockbuster The Hunger Games! It's all the laughs and half the calories as they sling dozens of cock-eyed, barbed arrows at sci-fi, action and fantasy films from The Avengers and Oz the Great and Powerful to pop culture characters and celebrities like Harry Potter and Taylor Swift.

Goofs

The movie contains frequent discontinuities, including disappearing bee sting marks and bird droppings on Kantmiss's face, her broken teeth suddenly being restored, and more. All these discontinuities are intentional, and may serve several purposes. In particular, this allows the filmmakers to jump from one gag to the next without wasting resources on makeup that has already served its comical purpose. See more »

This is no parody - this is just only embarrassing!
8 April 2015 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

With the movie "The Staving Games" it has been attempted to denigrate the film "The Hunger Games". But this trial has failed unambiguously! "The Starving Games" is not a funny parody but rather an embarrassing attempt to be witty. Lot's of jokes are awkward and the most situations are by simply painful. I have to admit that the title has been chosen well and a couple times I had to smile, but the rest of time I was ashamed. I wished the movie will end and I am glad that it only takes 83 minutes and so I survived this firework of foreign shame. In conclusion I want to advise against watching "The Starving Games" because this is no funny parody but rather an embarrassing film where there is nothing to laugh about.
