The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are recovering from 2010's woefully misguided adaptation of the classic tale, The Nutcracker. Add some Nazi rats, John Turturro looking like Andy Warhol, some strange messages, Albert Einstein, some strange songs, some unfortunate dancing, and too much Holocaust imagery, and you've got a terrible idea and a terrible execution of a holiday classic. The guys try and make sense of the film, wonder how dark a children's movie can get, and question why Einstein would make a good babysitter.
