Set in the most depressing corner of a postapocalyptic 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.

Will someone please tell Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg that they should stop making movie? They're not good at it! I picked this one off the list at Netflix and thought, why not? Terrible jokes, poor acting and a sh!tty script are reasons why not. This is not a parody as parodies contain some wit; this did not. It was the same lame jokes that you'd see in F and S's other alleged parodies. It makes me wonder if fart jokes are pre-printed in the beat sheets when they start story development.
The acting was a step above a cold read (if that much). The jokes are heavily forced on you. And most are rehashed from every other F and S movie.
