Ben and his bother George have finally done it for their SNL-themed podcast "Saturday Night Jive." They watched all three "Daddy Day Care" movies, but tackling them in a style Christopher Nolan would be proud of. They began with "Gran Daddy Day Care," then "Daddy Day Camp" with Cuba Gooding Jr., and now come to where the pain all started, with 2003's Eddie Murphy family comedy, "Daddy Day Care." The episode is golden just for George's investigation into the Kid's Choice Award of Best Fart for that cinematic year. Let their pain be your gain.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" have been down from some bad weather and mismatched schedules, so in the meantime, please enjoy the podcast that Ben records regularly with his brother George, "Saturday Night Jive," where the guys watch and analyze a strange film starring an SNL alum. "I Feel Pretty" stars Amy Schumer as a regular woman who hits her head and suddenly thinks of herself as a slim beauty and struts her stuff. As Ben says, "I don't know if we've ever watched a movie so conceptionally wrong." Can it be saved? Listen to a highly analytical, engaging podcast all about beauty standards, feminism, "El Kabong" logic, and the business failings of a bizarre GroupDate website promotion.

While the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are busy with another writing project, so in the meantime enjoy a podcast from Ben and his brother George, "Saturday Night Jive," where the two of them watch and analyze movies starring SNL alums. This week it's one of the biggest SNL stars, Mike Myers, and one of the biggest bombs, "The Love Guru," a woefully misguided crass comedy that all but killed Myers' comedy career. Ten years later, is it as bad as remembered, or will the boys find it to be a hidden gem akin to their reappraisal of Adam Sandler's "Jack and Jill"

While the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are keeping busy with some writing projects, enjoy a fascinating film showcased on Ben's other podcast he records regularly with his brother George, "Saturday Night Jive," an SNL-related podcast that reviews bad movies starring SNL alums. "Million Dollar Mystery" is a "Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" ripoff that was born as a, for real, real scavenger hunt to the public sponsored by Glad trash bags. It's truly bizarre and Ben and George love it. Give it a listen and you may fall in love too.

While the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are wrapping up and revising another writing project for a producer, give a listen to Ben's other podcast he records regularly with his brother George -- "Saturday Night Jive." In honor of Ben Affleck's five-timers club hosting Saturday Night Live, the guys watch the notorious bomb from 2003, "Gigli." It's just as bad as you've heard and maybe worse, accompanied by a tonally awful piano score. Come for the embarrassing monologues about J.Lo's vagina, stay for the anaysis of every wrong-headed decision in this flick.

While the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are occupied with a writing project, they're giving the spotlight over to Ben's other podcast he records regularly with regular special guest George. "Saturday Night Jive" is where the guys watch a usually terrible movie featuring an SNL-alum and dissect it thoroughly to hilarious results. With 1987's bizarre double Malkovich misguided rom-com "Making Mr. Right," that extends into questioning why anyone would give a robot foreskin. Also starring soon-to-be Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf. This is a movie that needs to be heard to be believed.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are still on hiatus for the time being so give a listen to Ben and George's other podcast "Saturday Night Jive," where the brothers look at bad movies starring Saturday Night Live alums. This week they highlight the 1998 movie "Krippendorf's Tribe" starring Richard Dreyfuss, Jenna Elfman, and a young Mila Kunis. It's a movie that probably couldn't be made today and Ben and George marvel at what might be a forgotten comic masterpiece of very un-PC proportions.

While on hiatus, the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are highlighting some of the best from the "Saturday Night Jive" podcast from Ben and George, discussing movies related to SNL aluni. This week comes the 1986 woeful action thriller misfire "Out of Bounds" which attempted to turn a mid 80s Anthony Michael Hall into the most unlikely tough-talking action hero. It's a memorable movie that is forgotten in annuls of so-bad-it's-good and it was never released on DVD. Enjoy as Ben and George shed light on this hilarious new classic.
