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.

Trivia

President Snowballs admits that he came up with the idea of the Starving Games after watching The Running Man (1987) and Battle Royale (2000). This is a reference to the accusation against Suzanne Collins that she copied the idea of The Hunger Games (2012) from the novel "Battle Royale." See more »

Goofs

Actor Hunter Baxley is listed in the credits as playing "Blonde Guy." It should have been "Blond" (masculine spelling) rather than "Blonde" (female spelling). See more »
