'Rejected Pitches' Rips Apart 'Citizen Kane' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Even though it was recently bumped down to the second greatest movie of all time, it's hard to imagine a world where Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane" would have been rejected. That's why it's a good thing the studio executives of comedy web series, "Rejected Pitches" never got a hold of the script.

In this episode, Dan Klein, Kelly Hudson, and Ben Rameaka sit down with Welles (Frank Hejl) to discuss his totally lame screenplay about a dead, old loser who's obsessed with (spoiler alert) a sled. There isn't even a prom, wedding or sledding competition at the end of the movie. And what's with starting at the end?

Watch the video above to see Orson back-from-the-dead "Wheels" defend the (second) greatest movie of all time from the world's classiest movie execs.
