Dirty Sons of Pitches

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches," reunited, are going to go to a sad, sad place. They pitch the saddest movies they can think of then play a game of Disney-fy It to turn some unhappy ending frowms upside down. Along the way the guys talk about other subjects like the historical context of Steely Dan, hiding Ringo Starr in a dark place, why underdogs don't always deserve to win, "Spring Breakers" vs. "The Master" for hardest movie to watch, Paul Feig's connection to "Heavyweights," how staying through the end credits can bite you in the end, when the hero gets in his own way, Drew Carey's connection to the Zodiac killer, a new way of viewing the Trail of Tears, and Ben's hand replacement experiment.
