Synopsis

After celebrating Doug's upcoming wedding in a cut rate hotel in Laughlin, Nevada, our hungover party-ers, Bradley, Ed and Zach, wake up in a strange room in an even stranger world and without their pal, Doug. After meeting the haughty and flighty Effing and the gruff, alcoholic Justmitch, our trio puts the pieces together and realizes that they are on a train car headed to The Hungover Games. But instead of the twelve districts of The Hunger Games, our guys have to go toe to toe against various Pop Culture Districts, including The Superhero District, The Middle Earth District, the Puppet District, and the Johnny Depp District.

"The Hungover Games," written by David Bernstein, Kyle Barnett Anderson and Jamie Kennedy marks the directorial debut of Josh Stolberg. Producers are Ash R. Shah, Ben Feingold, Jim Busfield, Steve Small and Jamie Kennedy. For additional film news, please visit the official Facebook page here.
