-Switch the Pitch -- "JCVD" / "Last Action Hero"
-The guys watch two big stars of action movies of old send up their movie star images. First Jean-Claude Van Damme in 2008's "JCVD," and then the unfairly maligned meta blockbuster with Arnold, "Last Action Hero." Ben then pitches a new movie by combining the key elements from both action movies.
