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!

Sweety starts her first day of her NEW job today(Congrats Sweety, smell ya later unemployment) and we thought it was a perfect time to cover a movie all about the trials and tribulations of the 9-5, Working Girl! Starring Melanie Griffith, Sigourney Weaver, and Harrison Ford, Working Girl is about lady empowerment but also giant hair and poor eyeshadow choices from circa 1988 Staten Island, how hot Harrison Ford was back in 1988, why you should never mix tequila shots and unknown dosages of valium, andddd why every woman needs more Joan Cusack like friends and less sneakers with pencil skirts.  BONUS we Call Carolâ„¢ and chat about her thoughts on this movie and what is what like being a working girl (not a prostitute, get your minds out of the gutter!) in the 1980s.

Big news guys! This week we collaborated with our pals Sean and Dan at The Writer's Bone podcast, recorded at a real podcast studio in Cambridge, MA and .... chatted happily about the best Arnold Schwarzenegger movie ever, Kindergarten Cop! Whew, this movie scared the bejesus out of us when we were kindergarteners! I mean is this a kid's movie? You be the judge! The Sweeties and the WB boys talk all about Arnie, some of our fondest memories of kindergarten, do some fabulous (or horrible) Schwarzenegger impressions and continue our discussion of why men with greasy, long hair are the ultimate villain. It's not a toooooomah!

Another year, another Valentine's Day sans valentines for the Sweeties! Welp, who the F cares because we made Selena Quintanilla Perez our valentine and watched one of the greatest biopics of all time centered around bangs and a sequined bustier! YASSS, that's right.  Selena, from 1997, skyrocketed J. Lo to fame but more importantly brought Selena, the slain Tejano superstar national if not worldwide attention. We were obsessed with this movie as kids, had the soundtrack, sang along in jibberish Spanish..... and not much has changed today! We'll go over each and every song (lucky you), discuss in length Selena's outfits and fashion trends, and induct two new Sweeties into the Sweetie Club 4 Life.  BIDI BIDI BOM BOM BITCHES.

Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, get on up ..... It's Bobsled Time! Coooooooool Runnings!  Happy Winter Olympics everyone! We celebrated by watching this epic underdog film from 1993.  Based on true events - there was a real Jamaican bobsled team that slid their way to the Calgary Olympics in 1988. Starring John Candy and some no name but incredibly charismatic faux Jamaicans actors, this movie taught us that it's not always about winning and that even if you've never seen snow or ice or even a bobsled before, that shouldn't stop you from achieving your Winter Olympic dreams! We'll chat about all the scary sled events at the Winter Olympics, induct Junior into the Sweetie Club, and try to come to a consensus of why white dudes were running around in the mid 90s with Rastafarian caps with fake dreads!

So.....we didn't watch the Super Bowl (again!) but still ate nachos and watched a sport's adjacent film, none other than The Next Karate Kid! Starring a baby Hilary Swank and our absolute favorite Pat Morita, The Next Karate Kid is the fourth installment of the KK franchise, but this time it's with a girl! Imagine that! Julie's got a bad attitude (I mean her parents died recently and she's forced to move towns - I feel you girl) and when her grandfather's old army buddy comes to town, her grandmother decides it's a perfect time for a house swap aka time for Mr. Miyagi to guide another troubled kid back to safety by way of karate.  Julie fights against the evil Alpha Elite aka Raper Club, finds a sorta boyfriend in sweet guy Eric, and makes some fun new monk friends. Really best movie ever! We'll chat about lots of fun 90s thangs (short prom dresses, belly shirts, thick rolled ankle socks, and the Cranberries), Sweetie confesses she wishes there was more karate, and we choose our favorite monk!

Who's ready for Sobfest 2K18? Get the tissues guys, we're watching Steel Magnolias! Steel Mag's was one of three movies that the Sweeties grew up crying all over - who can forget the sad as fuck story about sweet Shelby, a Louisiana Southern belle stricken with Type 1 diabetes but wants a baby so badly, so risks her life to have one - much to the chagrin of her very overbearing mother M'Lynn. This movie is about the friendships that keep us afloat, when life and type 1 diabetes gets us down.  With an all star cast, GIANT big puffy hairstyles, and a lot of useless men that don't really do much, we love this film and laughed and cried and cried some more.
