Large Marge Sent Us

Here on the Large Marge Sent Us podcast, Sweety and Sweetie are our names and nostalgia is our game! Once a week (or more if you're lucky!) we watch movies from the 80s and 90s that shaped our childhoods and then have a sisterly chat about them. We usually sing songs and there's about a 100% chance we'll crack up with bouts of laughter. We hope you will too! So come join us and step back into a time when life was good and the movies were even better Logo created lovingly by Frankie Donlon. Follow us on Twitter @TheSweetieClub and on Facebook!

Don't lie to us. We know The Exorcist is your favorite closet Xmas movie and that's why we thought it would be the perfect break in a slew of holiday themed films this month. Anti Christ for Christmas? What what. The Sweeties got into this movie because Sweetie watched it for her birthday sleepover from the ages of 12 to 18, while lil Sweety hid behind the couch. Known as one of the scariest movies on the planet, The Exorcist is all about demonic possession, pea soup vomit, really unfortunate uses of the c-word andddddd some pretty great 70s outfits.  We get real deep with this one so hold onto your crucifixes and holy water and let the power of Christ compel you!!

Since we're not the biggest Christmas lovers, we decided to let the fans decide which Christmas movie we should cover. We listened to your recommendations, put them all in a cute stocking and picked one out to watch. The winner was....Santa Claus the Movie! Released in 1985 and starring Dudley Moore and John Lithgow, Santa Claus the movie is part Santa origin story part Christmas epic saga, and believe it or not we had never seen it (or remembered it). Join us as we experience a full dose of Christmas, and hear what troubles us the most about this flick (hint it rhymes with Lon Mithgow's beef). Thanks to @Megs_C  @mitzy247 and @CAlice13 for the recommendation!

Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack! Guys, we watched The Mighty Ducks and we're here to say, it holds up! From 1992, who can forget when Gordon Bombay got a pesky DUI and as punishment was forced to coach a pee-wee hockey team and look deep inside himself on why he was a miserable bastard.  This movie falls into the genre of a rag-tag under team beating all odds to win it all! Tune in as we discuss the lackluster acting skills of Emilio Estevez, why we're still in love with Joshua Jackson after all these years, and why did people wear all sort of inappropriate hats in the 1990s.  Bonus Sweetie knocks down the mic. Twice.

We're capping off our month of random selections with 1992's The Bodyguard! A movie where the soundtrack might just be better than the film (sorry) but we love it anyways I guess. Starring Whitney Houston in her very first movie role as Rachel Marron (worst pop star name I ever heard) and hot in the 90s, Kevin Costner. Join us as we talk about hard hitting topics like: Lollipops---not professional. Orange Juice---a terrible beverage and most importantly how badly can we  butcher a Whitney Houston song? Listen to find out! 

**Warning turn down your volume early on when Sweetie goes to town in the Sweetie Synopsis intro**

 The house is going to be great! Famous last words in this hilarious comedy from 1986, which was a very good year indeed because our sweet Sweety was born! We loved this film as kids, and heck we don't even know why because what did we know about home repair? But now that we're seasoned HGTV watchers, we totally get the plight of Walter and Ana, as they deal with the never ending nightmare of a reno project but also how this tests their fragile relationship that was unknowingly filled with massive trust issues! Wow, this is heavy.  Listen in as we chat about all the secondary characters we loved, sing multiple rounds of the "The Name Game" Song (Anna Banna Bobanna etc), and wax on endlessly about the comedic brilliance of the one, the only Tom Hanks!

As two Sweeties who were in the prime of the Boy Band resurgence in the 90s, we fully support and LOVE That Thing You Do! with every fiber of our being. Written and directed by Tom Hanks (Sweetie Club member and alumni), That Thing You Do! tells the tale of The Wonders' quick rise to fame in 1964. Join us as we discuss why Jimmy is probably most definitely a serial killer, our own experiences with boy band mania, and hear Sweety sing all the songs from the soundtrack.

Straight talk you guys. If you don't find Babe to be the cutest movie that ever existed....you might be a terrorist. Just sayin. Join us as we relive this cute AF movie and talk all about how it warmed our hearts and souls. We'll get angered by its Oscar snub, reenact our favorite Gay Cow moments, and wonder if Babe 2 Pig in the City is worth watching. We'll also continue to be confused at why we thought this movie was supposed to take place in the UK and pour one out for Christine Cavanaugh who sadly passed away in 2014. That'll do pig. That'll do.

Do you hear that drumming? It's a new episode all about your favorite book about a game turned movie, turned game----JUMANJI!!! Released in 1995 and starring the always endearing Robin Williams, Jumanji taught us that board games can sometimes be dangerous and that comedically placed Monkeys won't save bad CGI no matter how wily you make them. Join us as we discuss which game obstacle was our favorite, why they chose to make the same actor play the mean scary hunter and Alan's dad, and hear us mix up the name Alan and Peter the entire time!

Great day! Great day! WE DID ANOTHER MUSICAL!

Sweetie's third favorite musical is ANNIE, and oh boy was she excited today! From 1982, Annie is the lovable story about an orphan with a heart of gold and literally a gold heart locket, who warms the heart of the Depression era, Republican, money loving Daddy Warbucks! The songs are famous! The red headed wig is famous! What's not to love?  Tune in as we warble through all 13 musical numbers, discuss the idea of Miss Hannigan as a sympathetic villain, whether Daddy Warbucks and Grace's relationship was really workplace appropriate, and dissect the really unfortunate racial stereotypes that seem to plague all our beloved 80s films. Womp, womp. Tomorrow! Tomorrow! Don't wait to listen to this podcast until tomorrow! It's only a download awayyyyyyy.

Spooky Spookerson month continues with the spookiest family of them all and one of the better sequels to come out of the 90s, Addams Family Values! Our favorite macabre family is back in action, but this time Uncle Fester is lusting after the nanny, who turns out to be a homicidal maniac gold digger, the kids get shipped off to the summer camp from hell, they have a baby named Pubert (worst name ever!)?! Join us as we chat about our love for Joan Cusack, if Uncle Fester or Cousin It would be good in the sack, why Debbie picks a pumpkin colored bowl cut style for Fester's toupee, and whether or not we'd spend a night in the Addams' family creeptastic house!

Guys, it finally happened. We found a DVD player and treated ourselves to watching our favorite movie about a valley girl turned vampire slayer...Buffy (THE Vampire Slayer)! Released in 1992 and starring Kristi Swanson and Luke Perry, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of our favorite movies as kids and we're here to announce that it's still pretty awesome. Join us for a lively discussion about: what scenes scared us the most as kids, what makes this movie super 90s, and of course Sweetie Questions that will knock your chunky white socks with loafers off!

It's October, so we thought we'd do a few movies that scared the crap out of us as wee ones. First up is 1991's Silence of the Lambs and we hope we don't need to tell you that this movie is....amazing. A rare psychological thriller/horror film that won an Oscar, we first watched this in its edited version on TV. And when that magical time came when we watched the full version...boy were we confused. So join us as we discuss: how utterly fantastic Jodie Foster is, how Hannibal Lecter is the sweetest serial killer we know, and hear our new smash hit, "I don't want no seed pods"

Rejoice! Our first trilogy is complete! We watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and then cried because there are none left now (That's right, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull does NOT count!) Released in 1989, The Last Crusade brings together the powerhouse duo of Harrison Ford and Sean Connery and provides so many comedic moments that it's almost hard to count. Join us as we discuss our favorite parts, our favorite lines AND hear Sweetie sing her new favorite song: the Third Reich anthem (just kidding!) (but actually that is a catchy tune goddamn you Nazis.) Plus, catch a first listen of our new track "The Penitent Man (Kneel)" courtesy of Sweetie Records.

We'll answer questions posed by our Twitter followers and Sweetie will finally tell you all what the hell was up with that damn buzzer!!

Guys. It's our last Sequels September! We closed it off with a truly sweet sequel--My Girl 2! Released in 1994, My Girl 2 picks up the endearing story of Vada Sultenfuss now in her teenage awkward years, as she embarks on a quest to find out more about her mother in Los Angeles. While not as sad as the first one, My Girl 2 still delivers a healthy dose of tears, mostly in the form of Vada's mother singing the best rendition of 'Smile' EVER. So grab those tissues again and hear us talk about random things like that time we discovered that our father had been married before (gasp!), the magical story of how Ron and Carol first met, and hear us sing the first song that comes to mind in a little game we like to call, "Your friends awkwardly make you sing a song at a picnic...go!"

Nearly done with September Sequels! Tonight we tackle our first sequel musical and man, we gotta say, Grease 2 is NOT the word.  From 1982, Grease 2 stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Rex Manning and some D list T-Birds and Pink Ladies.  Grease 2 has all the high school musical shenanigans - bowling alley dance parties, bad sexual euphemisms, bunker seductions that go bust, a talent show that gets side tracked by a sad sack drama queen and don't forget the world's worst rip off of Danny Zuko we've ever seen.  Sorry, we're being harsh.  Grease 2 provides a ton of nostalgia and it's a great bad movie that we'll cherish till our dying day.  We'll review all the good bad songs, let Sweetie do a timed 1 minute rant about Adrian Zmed, and talk about who are favorite season is from the Calendar Girls musical number.  Cool rider baby. Cool rider.

Remember The Disney Afternoon?! You'd come home from school, grab your snack and plop yourself down in front of the TV to watch the most magical few hours of Television programming that ever existed....The Disney Afternoon! In this episode, we'll cover three of our favorites: Gummi Bears, Duck Tales, and Rescue Rangers and debate about which was our fave and why. We'll sing the theme songs at the top of our lungs and go off on a weird tangent about cereal. Come on and get cozy with us!

Next up in Sequels September is Waynes World 2 aka WW2 which as true Wayne's World's fans know, does NOT mean World War 2. Released in 1993 only a year after the previous film, WW2 picks up also a year later and finds Wayne and Garth moved out of their parents house and trying to make it in the real world as true 'adults'. Join us as we discuss a never ending list of Sweetie Confusions and discover that Sweetie is still very much confused about a few of them. We'll also look up some celebrity riders (cough cough Mariah Carey), and talk about how Aerosmith had a strange resurgence in the 90s.

Our next stop on the Sequels September train is the followup to the 1984 horror/comedy classic Gremlins.....that's right...Gremlins 2. Picking up again with Billy Peltzer and now fiance Kate, Gremlins 2 takes the Gremlins and places them smack dab in the middle of NYC, wreaking havoc on a suped up 90s technological superbuilding! What could go wrong? Straight talk you guys, this movie is NOT good, but we friggin loved it when we were kids. So join as we discuss: why we loved it so, what scenes scared us the most, and hear the classic tale of how Sweetie gets horribly confused and cannot tell the difference between Marathon Man, The Running Man, and Blade Runner.

Our next Sequels September flick is the followup to Look Who's Talking....aptly titled Look Who's Talking Too and damn it we love it. How can you go wrong with babies voiced by Bruce Willis, Roseanne Barr AND Damon Wayans....HOW?!?!?! OK so it's not an Oscar contender...but Mr. Toilet man is voiced by Mel Brooks you guys. Mel Brooks! So join us as we discuss some classic Sweetie segments, talk about our favorite NYC moments, and hear us sing a lot of really great songs because wouldn't you know it...this movie has a kick ass soundtrack (again!) We're all shook up over our strange love of Look Who's Talking. Sorry not sorry!

Sep 8, 2017

It's time for SEQUELS SEPTEMBER! A whole month where we cover amazing (but probably terrible sequels)! First up is the 1990 Sequel to the 80s classic The Neverending Story. Starring a young Jonathan Brandis, The Neverending Story 2 is...........pretty awful, but for some reason we remembered it fondly. Picking up sometime in the near future, Bastian is now a really annoying, horrible kid afraid of high diving who travels back to Fantasia to save the Childlike Empress (again) from 'The Emptiness" aka "The Nothing Part 2". Join us as we discuss: Xaida's (sp?) cool fashion sense, Bastian and Atreyu's weird forced friendship and hear Sweetie recount a story about that time Sweety missed Power Rangers and cried. Good times guys. Good times.

It's time for another Bonus Episode! This time we're taking you back to the early 90s game show Nick Arcade. A technical marvel for the 90s, Nick Arcade put two teams of kids against each other as they battled for a chance to compete in the elusive Video Zone----a massive blue screen (green screen?) that allowed the contestants to be players in a video game. Join us as we discuss the strange pop quizzes (guess what's in this vice?) (Weird AF.), why Phil Moore was da bomb.com, and how we finally got to see what it was like behind the scenes of the Video Zone. Game on bitches.

Get your box of tissues ready, we're tackling one of the saddest movies on the planet....My Girl! Released in 1991, My Girl gives us a tour of Vada Sultenfuss's summer as an 11 year old girl coming of age in 1972. We'll talk about hard hitting subjects like: life and death, blue eye shadow (is there such a thing as too much?) (Answer: YES), why Bingo is a great game but also sometimes scary, and of course, Tubas---- The #1 instrument you probably shouldn't adopt as a recreational hobby. Bonus! Everyone's favorite segment 'Call Carol" returns! WARNING we talk about periods at the end. Also get over it though.

Aug 23, 2017

Get ready because we're bringing you THE best ever board game to movie adaptation on the planet....Battleship. Just kidding! Like we'd give two and a half shits about that trash. We're talking about Clue! The whodunit classic from 1985 that brought to life one of our favorite board games to play at boring family functions! Starring the ever amazing Tim Curry, Clue taught us that communism was only a red herring and ALSO that scarlet is actually red and not a nice teal green as Miss Scarlet's dress would have you believe. So join us for a rousing discussion on our favorite board games and hear Sweetie get in the weeds about who the cutest boy on the Dream Phone cards is.

Aug 16, 2017

Sneakers is the most underrated movie that came out of 1992 and we'll fight anyone to the death who thinks otherwise! People, this movie is the shit and not just because it has one of the best ensemble casts ever created - Robert Redford, Sidney Poitier, Dan Ackroyd, Ben Kingsley, River Phoenix, David Strathairn, James Earl Jones, NED RYERSON (Steven Tobolowsky) - but because it's about cool spying, hacking stuff, has an amazing score, and affirms the fact that you don't need sight to be a bad ass bitch. So if you haven't seen this movie yet - RENT IT - and then listen to our awesome podcast where we mostly just get boners talking about how great this movie is, why Ben Kingsley has 10 different accents, how Robert Redford is still a hottie, and why computer hacker movies are a lost art.  TOO MANY SECRETS.
