Be­lieve it or not, this isn’t even the first comedic riff on The Hunger Games; The Starv­ing Games got there a year be­fore. This scat­ter­shot spoof fu­els it­self not just with the world of the Girl On Fire, how­ever; it sticks knock­offs of char­ac­ters from The Hang­over into a ver­sion of Panem whose dozen dis­tricts are pop­u­lated by myr­iad movie par­o­dies – so there’s a dis­trict of Johnny Depp char­ac­ters, for ex­am­ple. Fea­tur­ing a character called Kat­nip, a minc­ing ver­sion of Thor, and a whole lot of gra­tu­itous nu­dity, it’s enough to make you wish the Zucker brothers had never got into movie- mak­ing.
