The Hungover Games is a parody comedy movie released in 2014. The movie is written and directed by Josh Stolberg, and it stars actors like Ross Nathan, Sam Pancake, and Ben Begley. The Hungover Games takes its inspiration from two popular movie franchises, The Hangover series, and The Hunger Games series, and blends them together into a mash-up that is both entertaining and absurd.

The Hungover Games starts with four friends, Doug, Bradley, Ed, and Zach waking up in a strange hotel room, following a wild party the night before. The group has no recollection of their previous night's events, and they soon discover that their friend, Teddy, is missing. Their hotel room has been trashed, and they also realize that they have been drugged with a mind-altering substance called "Roofalin." As they try to piece together what happened the night before and search for their missing friend, they encounter several characters, including a flamboyant Caesar Flickerman clone, a crazy Katniss Everdeen, and even Lindsay Lohan.

The group soon finds themselves thrust into a world where they are the contestants in the 75th Annual Hungover Games. The Games, hosted by The Capitol, have brought together twelve districts, each with their own tribute, to compete for a grand prize, which is a lifetime supply of booze. The Games are modeled after The Hunger Games, with different challenges and obstacles that the tributes must overcome to survive. The tribute representing the district of the friends is Katnip Everlean (Sam Pancake), who turns out to be a middle-aged man dressed as a woman.

The Hungover Games is an over-the-top parody movie that employs humor and satire to take a dig at popular and iconic characters from two separate movie franchises. The movie borrows heavily from The Hangover series, with the characters waking up not remembering anything and slowly piecing together their wild and crazy night. It also lampoons The Hunger Games series, with the tributes fighting for survival in a highly orchestrated and deadly arena.

The cast of The Hungover Games includes several well-known comedians like Kyle Richards, Tara Reid, and Jamie Kennedy, among others, who bring their unique comedic timing to the movie. The performances of the actors are largely exaggerated, and the movie is littered with over-the-top gags and slapstick humor that might not be for everyone but is entertaining nonetheless.

As the movie progresses, the friends begin to remember more about what they did the night before, and the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of their friend Teddy becomes more clear. The friends soon discover that they are not the only contestants in the Games who were drugged with Roofalin, and that there is a greater conspiracy at play that involves the actual Capitol officials.

The Hungover Games is a movie that will appeal to fans of parody comedies and those who are familiar with The Hunger Games and The Hangover series. While the movie might not be everyone's cup of tea, it offers a fresh and different take on two popular movie franchises, blending them into a zany and entertaining mash-up that is quite amusing.

Overall, The Hungover Games is a movie that delivers a lot of laughs, albeit at the expense of its source material. The movie does not take itself too seriously, and it is best enjoyed when looking to turn off your brain and indulge in some shameless, silly entertainment. While it might not be for everyone, The Hungover Games is a fun movie that is well worth checking out if you're in the mood for some mindless laughter.

The Hungover Games is a 2014 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 25 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.5.
