Would you be kind enough to help me to find the adequate take on the expressions in bold in the following excerpt from an entertainment news?
John Malkovich plays Ozzie, a pompous CIA analyst who loses his job, pitches a fit, then decides to compose a snarky memoir.
pitch a fit = throw a fit = have a fit = have a hell of a good
snarky = crotchety, impertinent, irritable (?)
Thank you for your efforts.
pitches a fit = throws a wobbly = loses his temper.
snarky = in this context, crotchety and snide about other people.
