Ep. 275: Classics Catch-Up (or) Hot Garbage? -- "Singin' in the Rain" (1952) / "Cannibal: The Musical" (1993)
The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are pairing two toe-tapping musicals together, one of great renown and the other a cult movie that began the careers of envelope-pushing satirists. This week's classic is, by request, 1952's "Singin' in the Rain," and the cult movie is the first film from the "South Park" creators, 1993's "Cannibal: The Musical."

Episode 275 includes:
-Ben Shapiro is not a fan of Cardi B, W.A.P., and apparently pleasing his wife.
-Movie theaters are coming back, but should they? "Mulan" is going to cost $30 for Disney+ subscribers, but should it? Julianne Moore debates whether only gay actors should play gay roles, but should that be the case? So many questions.
-The delightfully droll "An American Pickle" gives you two Seth Rogen's for the price of one.
-"Project Power" is a good premise with the most generic and lazy of execution. Bleh.
-Classic Film -- "Singin' in the Rain" (1952)
-Gene Kelly's vibrant celebration of Old Hollywood with some of the most famous song-and-dance sequences in movie history.
-Cult Film -- "Cannibal: The Musical" (1993)
-The student film the creators of "South Park" made that first got them serious attention in the comedy world and was released by Troma and has not aged well.
