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!

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.

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.

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.

This week we decided to leave the movie watching decision up to the fans and you picked: Back to the Future Part II! Released in 1989, the 2nd installment in Marty McFly's time traveling saga, takes us to the year 2015 and delivers the kind of futuristic excitement that only a movie made in the 80s could bring. And although we never got flying cars, auto-sizing clothes, power laces, OR a real hoverboard--we still love the sheer awesomeness that is an 80s version of 2015. Join us as we talk about the movie phenomena of kids looking exactly like their parents, how we were super spooked by the chaos strewn streets of the alternate 1985, and hear us exclaim about how we're basically stuck in an alternate version of 2017 right this very moment only instead of Biff running the world, we got Drumpf. So  put your lithium setting on high, we're going....forward in time! (And then back again) (and then back again again)

IT'S OUR ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!! We celebrated by drinking wine through straws, buying gross as fuck hair extensions from the dollar store AND watching Mrs. Doubtfire! NOT THE WORST DAY IN THE WORLD! Probably one of Robin William's most beloved films, released in 1993, Mrs. Doubtfire taught us all about divorce and what not to do in the event you aren't awarded joint custody of your children. Join us as we talk about the hijjinks that were involved when we tried to see this film in theaters in 1993, how this film could never be made today because it's a bit transphobic, how Stewart, while aggressively hot needs to fucking cool with his triple twist dive (that may or may not be a skating term), and we'll do a much deserved ode to Robin Williams, RIP. Thank you amazing fans for bringing us to one year!

It's time for another musical! Join us as we re-watch Bedknobs and Broomsticks and realize that it probably should have been called 'Mary Poppins But Not As Good". Released in 1971, B-knobs and B-sticks, stars the always adorable Angela Lansbury and Mr. Banks himself David Tomlinson and combines cartoons with live action for another thrilling magical adventure. We'll talk about many fascinating things including: why jerk face Charlie is essentially one of those pricky Gallagher brothers from Oasis, which songs and scenes are our favorite, and the thrilling tale of how a Jamaican steel drum band ends up on Portobello Road.  Grab your broomstick and mangy old sick cat and come get witchy with us!
