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!

The Sweeties are back from their Cali trip and ready to dive back into the hits with 1994's Ace Ventura Pet Detective! Starring Jim Carrey in his groundbreaking role as a lovable eccentric pet detective, Ace Ventura exists in the Sweetie canon of our top 10 flicks. We'll talk about our many levels of confusion involving (but not limited to) blowjobs, Einhorn's history as a missing hiker/failed football star, and, sexual intercourse and the importance of '3 times'. We'll also 'choose our own comedy' by indulging the listeners in our favorite misheard quotes AND fall down a rabbit hole of famous old lady actresses (Spoiler: they're all dead now! :(   )

The Sweeties are busy flying to L.A., so enjoy this sweet episode where we talk about everyone's favorite kid baseball flick--The Sandlot! We'll talk about the epic hotness of one Benny 'The Jet' Rodriguez, get into a discussion of the sexism that existed in 90s sports movies, and share stories of our short lived baseball careers. We'll ask important questions like, Why does Benny keep a spare hat in his pocket at all times? Did the kids just imagine the Beast's ferociousness AND was James Earl Jones a hoarder or did he just not give AF because he was blind?

In 1985 a Disney movie was born and quickly wormed its way into the fears of every child known to mankind. Sorry too dramatic? But for realz. Return to OZ is the movie that still haunts many of us today and is the reason why most of us panic and abandon a shopping cart at the first sign of squeak. Join us as we discuss those pesky Wheelers, the awesome/horrifying Princess Mombi and her weird man voice, and take a deep dive into Sweetie's latent fear of rock people wearing hidden dress shoes. There's no place like home but seriously, there has to be a better place than Kansas...Am I right?

IT'S WAYNE'S WORLD! PARTY TIME! EXCELLENT! *Guitar noises* The Sweeties are back and we're bringing you one of the movies on our top 10 lists! Wayne's World, released in 1992 is the SNL skit brought to life. Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar have a cable access show in a basement in Aurora, Illinois. Someone comes along and tries to exploit it, but that's not important because this movie is all about the hilarious one liners and even though we were a mere 9 and 6 years old, this movie soon became our most quotable--- even if we didn't get 85% of the jokes! So get in your Mirth mobile and grab your Fender Stratocaster and listen along as we chat about all the lines that we use in our daily life (Car! Game on!), our favorite Cassandra outfits and favorite Crucial Taunt songs, how much we miss windbreakers/tracksuits, and how Bohemian Rhapsody and Queen are best things since sliced bread. Plus, a fan favorite segment (Call Carol) returns! Do we know how to party or what?!

Look out guys, today we're covering everyone's favorite movie that combines animation with live action (sorry Space Jam fans!). That's right, Who Framed Roger Rabbit! Released in 1988, Who Framed Roger Rabbit stars the delightful Bob Hoskins as a down on his luck and drunk detective who embarks on a mission to find out who framed cartoon Roger Rabbit and why. We'll discuss whether or not it's possible to have sex with a cartoon, our favorite cartoons from back in the day and BONUS... Sweety lives out her fantasy as a lounge singer! We're not bad. We're just drawn that way.

BIG NEWS guys! Large Marge Sent Us has just hit 50 episodes and The Sweeties couldn't be more proud! In honor of such an amazing milestone, we thought it was time to trot out the movie that Sweetie deems responsible for shaping her childhood.... THE GOONIES.  Is there a better movie out there that captures 12 year old hijinks involving: a one eyed pirate, an Italian crime family, and a deformed possibly 40 year old with an unfortunate nickname? And no, this isn't the plot of The Godfather. We laughed, we cried, we argued about whether One Eyed Willy's boody, I mean booby traps would have ever really worked, the truth behind Sloth's deformities, clarify a list of Chunk's bullshit stories, and come up with an idea for a prequel which involves the life of Chester Copperpot (also our next Team Trivia name btw) and how he came to an unfortunate end (or did he???) searching for all that rich stuff. BONUS, we talk to the one, the only Hayley Nickerson (Sweetie's bff) about her love for The Goonies and make her prove if she's really a Goonie with a short quiz.  Thanks to our amazing listeners for helping us get to Episode 5-0! We love ya!
