Katniss and Peeta's Dream House? 'The Hunger Games' Barbie-Style!

Sock Monkey Productions

Can't wait a year to see the big budget event movie version of "The Hunger Games," starring Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson? Then how 'bout the one starring, directed and edited by Emma, Abby, and Isabel, three (presumably) adolescent girls from Sock Monkey Productions who staged a half-hour rendition of Suzanne Collins' book entirely with Barbie dolls.

You'll see District 12 tributes Katniss and Peeta fight for their lives. Also, "Toy Story" pig Hamm makes a cameo when Peeta throws Katniss bread, the chariot is a Little Tikes dump truck, and Katiniss kills a stag with a toothpick bow & arrow.

Unlike Todd Haynes, who made the brilliant all-Barbie "Karen Carpenter Story" 25 years ago, this pop culture tribute is pretty family friendly, except for a brief instance of doll decapitation.

It's a cliffhanger, so stick around for part two, when you get to see the famous cave kiss, a.k.a. the most awkward kiss between two dolls in the history of people playing with dolls. Watch out for cameos from stuffed animal versions of Grover from Sesame Street and the Abominable Snowman.

How can you dislike anything that has this in the credits: "A special thanks to Grandma and Grandpa for the use of their couch and Barbies."
