The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are exploring the would-be catastrophe that is Fox's new "Fantastic Four" reboot, currently being torn apart by critics and fans. The guys pitch unorthodox family projects this week and then play a game of Re-Cast It to better populate a modern "Fantastic" film. Along the way they talk about their possible safe words, Chris Farley as Shrek, David Vitter's diaper fetish, what went wrong with "F4" and what happens next, pitching a film about bad filmmakers exploiting the German tax loophole that helped fund Uwe Boll, and the power of sad giant heads eating planets and its connection to "Flash Gordon."
