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!

Remember that time when we were houseguests at our boss' Hampton's beach house, but when we showed up he had killed himself by od'ing on coke (just kidding he was murdered by a hitman, also doing lots of coke), and instead of calling the police we thought it was a better idea if we pretended he wasn't dead so we could continue to party, drink champagne, and make out with girls in thong bikinis?! Oh wait.  That never happened but it IS the plot to everyone's favorite movie about that loveable corpse, Weekend at Bernie's! Coming straight out of the golden year of Sweetie Sinema, 1989, Weekend at Bernie's is a horrible movie that for some reason continues to crack us up through it's slapstick humor and the hilarious duo of Richard and Larry.  Tune in as we talk about our consensus that this movie's real intention is to provide commentary on 90s yuppie culture, how Gwen is the oldest 21 year old we've ever seen, and which of Bernie's rich bitch toys we would want for ourselves. BONUS, we play everyone's favorite game: Andrew McCarthy or Emilio Estevez AND also get into an argument about Martin Sheen's real name (It's Ramon!) Happy Friday!

Continuing with our awesome Bonus Episode series, we watched an episode from everyone's favorite show about normal people vs. body builders.....AMERICAN GLADIATORS! Join us as we talk about our favorite Gladiators, how lame The Eliminator really was, and how all we ever wanted in life was to go to a live taping at Universal Studios but it just never happened! We'll also discuss some awesome 90s commercials (raper vans! chocolate milk! 79 cent Subway sandwiches!), lament about how bullshit it was that the female Gladiator uniforms gave them perma-wedges (and possibly nip slips) AND we determine who the hottest Gladiator of them all was (NITRO 4EVER). (Uhh Sweety here, what about LASER Sweetie?)

The Sweeties are back and we're bringing you THE movie that brought Sweety's childhood fantasy of being a witch to life. The Craft, released in 1996 and starring Fairuza Balk and Robin Tunney, is the ultimate good vs. evil or gothic person vs non-gothic person tale of what happens when four teenagers discover their powers and then do whatever the fuck they want. The Craft taught us that you should probably not shop lift from the nice witch lady's store, that having burn scars all over your body also means you don't have to shower, and that in the 90s Skeet Ulrich was typecast as a sleazy rapist pretending to be a good guy. So join as as we call the four corners and invoke the spirit!

This weekend we lost a rock legend. Chuck Berry died at the age of 90 years old, and we instantly knew we had to watch the movie that first introduced us to him--Back to the Future. Released in 1985, Back to the Future is THE ultimate time travel movie and really drives home the point that time travel is confusing AF but pretty frickin cool. Join us as we relive the finer points (which is all of the points) and talk about important things like how we hope to God Lorraine got some counseling after that 'casual' sexual assault, and how the prequel we really want to see is about Uncle Jail Bird Joey and how his life of crime began. Sp grab your guitars, skateboards, and flux capacitors...we're going back in time!

Remember in 1990 when Johnny Depp was a 120 pound weakling with scissors for hands who happened to be an excellent dog groomer/hair stylist/ice sculptor and had a crush on Winona Ryder who had strawberry blonde hair and was dating the geek from The Breakfast Club who was now hopped up on 'roids?!! Well, WE do. I just described the plot of everyone's second favorite Tim Burton Film, Edward Scissorhands! Listen along as the Sweeties discuss all there is to know about this trippy little film including: does Edward have a penis and can he make little scissorhanded babies, how Alan Arkin and Diane Wiest are fucking national treasures, and how Tim Burton used to be great but now he's just okay and we're upset about it.  So grab your Colt 45s, tape them to your hands, and listen to Large Marge Sent Us today!

What's your favorite movie about Nazis? Go! Well for the Sweeties, no one literally whips Nazi butt like our pal Harrison Ford in Raiders of the Lost Ark.  Predating the birth of the Sweeties by two years (1981!), Raiders of the Lost Ark was one of our Dad's favorite flicks and soon became ours once we were brave enough to actually watch all the face melting and spider crawling goodness.  We'll discuss why Nazis are the best bad guys, the hotness factor of Harrison Ford, how Marion Ravenwood is badass yet screechy AF, and clear up not just one but TWO moments of sweetie confusion. Yeah, we're wicked smart.  Hold on to your bull whips and Nazi saluting monkeys, it's time to get biblical!

Hey guys, when there's something strange in your neighborhood who ya gonna call? THE SWEETIES obviously. That's right, we're covering 1984's classic comedy flick Ghostbusters and we're very excited about it. Join us as we discuss why Dana Barrett is a crazy fame whore, our cool idea for a Ghostbusters prequel AND the confusion about the logistics of this crossing the streams solution. (Still dubious). Obviously we love this movie, and we know you do too. So let's quit talking and start busting up dem ghosts!

Look out you guys, Sweetie is BACK from vacation. Unfortunately she was a tad jet lagged, but hopefully you'll enjoy our discussion of the John Hughes classic, Ferris Bueller's Day Off just the same. Made in Sweety's birth year of 1986, Ferris Bueller spoke to us as children, but now feels like it's been used as a yearbook quote one too many times. Join us, as we discuss how Jeannie has now become our favorite character, why the bizarro fan theory of Ferris being a figment of Cameron's imagination is a bunch of bullshit and find out whether or not the Sweetie's were school skippers or not. OH YEAH. (bum bum)
