While the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are occupied with a writing project, they're giving the spotlight over to Ben's other podcast he records regularly with regular special guest George. "Saturday Night Jive" is where the guys watch a usually terrible movie featuring an SNL-alum and dissect it thoroughly to hilarious results. With 1987's bizarre double Malkovich misguided rom-com "Making Mr. Right," that extends into questioning why anyone would give a robot foreskin. Also starring soon-to-be Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf. This is a movie that needs to be heard to be believed.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are still on hiatus for the time being so give a listen to Ben and George's other podcast "Saturday Night Jive," where the brothers look at bad movies starring Saturday Night Live alums. This week they highlight the 1998 movie "Krippendorf's Tribe" starring Richard Dreyfuss, Jenna Elfman, and a young Mila Kunis. It's a movie that probably couldn't be made today and Ben and George marvel at what might be a forgotten comic masterpiece of very un-PC proportions.

While on hiatus, the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are highlighting some of the best from the "Saturday Night Jive" podcast from Ben and George, discussing movies related to SNL aluni. This week comes the 1986 woeful action thriller misfire "Out of Bounds" which attempted to turn a mid 80s Anthony Michael Hall into the most unlikely tough-talking action hero. It's a memorable movie that is forgotten in annuls of so-bad-it's-good and it was never released on DVD. Enjoy as Ben and George shed light on this hilarious new classic.
