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.
Bret and Jemaine are two musicians from New Zealand seeking fame in the concrete jungle of New York City. Of course, before they can strike it big they'll need an audience first. Managed by their enthusiastic but perpetually inept friend and consulate attaché, Murray Hewitt, the guys endure one dive bar gig after another on their way to stardom and find inspiration for song in pretty much every situation life throws at them.
