The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
P.J. Franklin is a professional sports columnist living in Chicago with a preternatural affinity for ballgames and close ties to the men in her life. A regular at their poker games and Monday night football get-togethers she's as much "one of the boys" as any of them. But when she goes looking for romance the men P.J. meets don't know what to make of her rough-talking, baseball stat-slinging personality and she'll have to take femininity lessons from her best friend Stephanie if she ever hopes to find the love of her life.
