The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are catching up on the major July summer releases and in honor of the new "Mission: Impossible" film they're pitching spy properties. In light of the disastrous new Adam Sandler film, "Pixar," Ben and Nate play a game of Vanity Project to try and figure out how exactly Sandler could recapture his earlier mojo. Along the way they talk about the uses of poor Victorian children, the role of documentaries, Ben as symbol of American carelessness, another shooting in a movie theater, Game of Thrones spoilers, and the hopes of Nichiolas Cage action movies being turned into Broadway musicals.
