The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are looking to see how comedy handles the remake process with their Remakin' It series this week. The guys examine the 1988 con caper "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" and the much less beloved 2019 remake, "The Hustle." It's a textbook example of how hard comedy can be even if you're repeating someone else's funny material near beat-for-beat.
