Dirty Sons of Pitches

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are all about Westerns this week as they embrace Eric's favorite genre. After pitching their own Westerns, the gang play a new game, Versus, where they tack an actor and pit two of their roles against one another in a duel. Along the way the guys get distracted tlaking about apocalypse by sloth, the use of "antithetical," starting off right with your "hellos," the metaphor of Nicole Kidman peeing on Zac Efron, the power of lieracy against the mentally ill and homocidal, the physicality needed to be a serial killer, and the disadvantages of having your head chopped off.

It's the second week of the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" spotlight on favorite genres, and this week it's Nate's turn to revel in one of his -- film noir. The guys then play a reverse version of Disney-fy It by transforming Disney animated films into film noir settings. Along the way they talk about the magic logistics of "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" and perfecting the perfect child, whether we should celebrate celebrity failures, the weird possibility of Channing Tatum in blackface in "Magic Mike," Ben's theory as to why Nate truly loves "Silver Linings Playbook" (hint: Jennifer Lawrence and Lycra), the comical scheduling misfortune for "Gangster Squad" with public shootings, Nick Nolte's similarity to bears, a naked P.I., Belle's Stockholm syndrome in "Beauty and the Beast," and reasons why the "Inspector Gagdet" movie failed as relates to film noir.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are back and have so much to say that we had to halve this week's episode. Part One concerns the recent Oscar nominations as well as the boys rehashing their thoughts on the movies they've seen since the break. They often get sidetracked with silliness, as they do, so get used to Ben arguing an ethical stance against "Zero Dark Thirty" and its depiction of toture one minute and the next the guys giggling over the concept of a porno version of "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" which alos happens to star Maggie Smith.
