Dirty Sons of Pitches

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" once had George come onto the podcast to test us on what he deemed one of the most amazing and unpredictable movies he had ever seen. Years later, for his podcast with his brother Ben, the guys of "Saturday Night Jive" give this 2017 curiosity the full blown deconstruction it rightfully deserves.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are watching two movies that aren't worth your time but trying to create a brand new pitch that could be better than both, and this week's subjects are 1998's comedy "Woo" and 2019's British indie dark comedy "A Serial Killer's Guide to Life."

Episode 323 includes:

-Casting news: Adam Warlock and animated Mario Brothers.

-Trailer discussion for "Scream 5: Scream and Scream Again."

-If you're a Sopranos fan, you might not even find enough to like with "The Many Saints of Newark."

-"The Adams Family 2" is perfectly fine family film.

-Switch the Pitch -- "Woo" / "A Serial Killer's Guide to Life"

-The guys discuss Jada Pinkett's early solo outing, 1998's "Woo," and a frustrating dark comedy that feels entirely stretched thin, 2019's "A Serial Killer's Guide to Life." They then combine both into a new, and better, pitch for a movie about the extent a lonely man will go to accept a charming serial killer girlfriend.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" have returned from a brief break with more movie discussion and news takes and are combining the Phillip K. Dick-inspired sci-fi movie, "Paycheck," John Woo's last American movie, with the 2016 Sundance indie "Southside with You" that chronicles the first date of a young Barack and Michelle Obama. The guys debate whether an interesting movie could be had with either premise (hint: one of them, no way) and create a far more interesting new project on the fly.

Episode 322 includes:

-Dr. Who getting new showrunner starting with the next season, and it's Russel T. Davies, the old showrunner.

-Marvel is suing the estates of its dead creators. Is this the next chapter in Phase Four?

-Evan Hansen is a monster and "Dear Evan Hansen" is a deeply misguided musical and movie.

-Ben just gives up with "Venom: Let There Be Carnage."

-Switch the Pitch -- "Paycheck" / "Southside with You"

-The guys discuss the disappointing John Wood-Ben Affleck sci-fi action movie and 2016's rambling would-be romance of the Obamas on the first date back in the day. They then combine both mediocre movies into a better pitch for a new project involving presidential time travelin' intrigue.
