Dirty Sons of Pitches

As a bonus to fans, Ben and George have combed through 237 episodes of their podcast "Saturday Night Jive" and formed a list of what they consider to be the best movies they have watched in their six years of recording together. This serves as a Greatest Hits sort of episode with plenty of clips from many of the highlighted movies, many bizarre and lesser known. For anyone wanting a sense of the wild highs of Ben and George's SNL-devoted podcast, give this podcast a listen and laugh along with the guys.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are looking at one of the bets comedies, a favorite of Ben's, for this week's classic film, 1966's "The Fortune Cookie," and one of the biggest bombs of all time, the infamous 1986 "Howard the Duck" adaptation.

Episode 279 includes:

-Will the box-office disappointment over "Tenet" scare studios from releasing any big blockbusters into theaters for the forseeable future?

-"The Babysitter: Killer Queen" suffers from Sequel-itis.

-"Antebellum" and "Cuties" are both controversial movies that have more going on than their critics decry.

-Classic Film -- "The Fortune Cookie" (1966)

-Billy Wilder's farce starring an Oscar-winning Walter Matthau and Jack Lemon and it's still an enjoyably chummy comedy that fires on many cylinders.

-Cult Film -- "Howard the Duck" (1986)

-The notorious FIRST Marvel movie about an alien duck, a lot of duck puns, an unrestrained Tim Robbins, a punk band, a demon-posessed Jeffrey Jones, and the question over the terror of duck genitalia. It's very, very bad and not deserving of reappraisal.
