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.
Based on the play "Cyrano de Bergerac", large nosed C.D. Bales falls for the beautiful Roxanne while she falls for his personality but another man's looks.
When C.D. is challenged to think of 20 better jokes than “big nose”, one of the ones he comes up with is, “you must love the little birdies that you give them this to perch on.” The joke is taken line for line from Cyrano De Bergerac.
