In this Hunger Games spoof, Kantmiss Evershot must fight for her life in the 75th annual Starving Games, where she could also win an old ham, a coupon for a foot-long sub, and a partially eaten pickle.
A spoof of 300 (2006) and many other movies, TV series/shows/commercials, video games and celebrities. King Leonidas of Sparta and his army of 12 go to war against Xerxes of Persia to fight to the death for Sparta's freedom.
Undercover cop Lucas White joins Vin Serento's LA gang of illegal street racers. They are fast and they are furious and they plan to double cross LA crime kingpin Juan Carlos de la Sol who hides his cash in a downtown Taco Bell. The gang's outrageous plan is as daring as it is ridiculous and will see them towing the whole damn restaurant, at crazy speeds.Written by

If this makes an average over 6 stars I would be surprised. As a film it's all a bit of crap visual comedy but if you view it as simply a series of sketches strung together loosely based on a series of memorable scenes from the original franchise you'll probably rather enjoy it.
Written and directed by the guys that did the Scream series on a shoestring budget. Unknown actors good a pretty fair job.
I like films and cars. As a film it's not that great but as a bit of light Sunday afternoon comedy it's perfectly passable. It's the sort of film that will bomb at the box office because the core 15-25 male market will probably dismiss it in public but will soar on torrent sites in private.
Michelle delivers some dynamite lines, The Rock is pretty funny too. Paul seems to sidelined a bit, almost on purpose it feels like, a little contrived but understandable. Dom gets the best lines but fluffs them a bit but I thinks that's poor direction as he nails others. Vince, arguably, does the best parody performance of the lot, in a comedy he is the comic relief.
Don't expect too much and don't be 'that guy' on Reddit picking holes in a film that has no pretences to be a fine piece of art and you'll probably enjoy it.
