Dirty Sons of Pitches

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" have returned from wedding duties and are looking back at two films from the year 2006, James Gunn's directorial debut, the body horror comedy "Slither," and Ivan Reitman's very bad and very cringe-inducing "comedy" about dating and breaking up with a superhero, "My Super Ex-Girlfriend."

Episode 378 includes:

-R.I.P. Jerry Springer and Ben's anticipation for "Dune: Part Two."

-Oh, yeah, there's also a writer's strike going on. What does it mean for Hollywood?

-Ben sings the praises of horror comedy "Renfield."

-By the Decade -- 2006 -- "Slither" / "My Super Ex-Girlfriend"

-Both movies prove disappointing for very different reasons. Gunn's "Slither" feels like a mismashed collection of its influences without the heart to hold it together beyond pastiche, and "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" is a poorly aged movie about women being crazy and needy from the point of view of a bad boyriend and other mid-2000s sexual politics.
