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!

Who wants to see a dead body? We do! Stand by Me, a Rob Reiner classic from 1986 and based on the the novella by Stephen King called "The Body", follows four 12 year old boys during the summer of 1959 as they go on a hunt for the body of missing classmate Ray Brower but more importantly go searching for the meaning of male friendship! And they find it! But they also find leeches! Spoooooky.  Sweety couldn't remember seeing this film, but Sweetie has fond memories of watching a movie that she knew was probably a bit old for her (it is rated R) despite it featuring preteens and enjoying it immensely.  We talk about our life long goal of someday finding a dead body, a lot about the Stephen King novella versus the movie adaptation, how we got some mad toxic masculinity in this film which at this point WE ARE OVER, and what is the hell is a goocher? I don't shut up. I grow up. And when I look at you I throw up! Nahhhhh!

Happy Tuesday! We thought it was about time to tackle a 90's teenage rom com because let's be honest, they have made us ALL who we are today and started with one of our favorites, 10 Things I Hate About You! From 1999 and starring Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger, this movie is an adaptation of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, a comedy that has clear problems in a world where we're starting to celebrate the "nasty" woman, but 10 Things does some good work in making it less about clipping an independent woman's wings and more about finding love for a woman character who didn't think love was out there for her! This movie is 90s through and through, with the baby doll style, high school cliques, and Sheik condoms! We'll talk about our love for Julia and Heath and their really unique looks, our favorite memories from high school dances, and why the somebody paid me to go out with you, but oops I fell in love with you story line is a tale as old as time, but hopefully one that is slowly fading into the sexist ether. BONUS, Sweetie rolls out another Sweetie Business plan aka The 10 Things I Hate About You Dating Service!

Continuing on with our trend of covering movies that scare the bleep out of Sweety, tonight we watched Arachnophobia and realized that animals run amok movies may be our favorite genre. Starring Jeff Daniels, some other people plus John Goodman, Arachnophobia tells the story of a spider from Venezuela who needs to spread his wings and hops aboard a corpse bound for a small town in Northern California. There, he meets Doctor Jeff Daniels (also new to the area) and decides he wants to take over his house and also the town. Join us as we talk about BUGS. This film is ageless and Jeff Daniels and John Goodman are gems and a half. We'll talk about our immense crush on PhD research assistant Chris Collins (with cute glasses and great hair, call us) whether Dr. Adderton looks like Legolas or Lucius Malfoy, and our true life gross out bug stories.

Bonus ep time! Who can forget the classic Nickelodeon game show (and it's longest running) Double Dare or it's other iteration Family Double Dare? Part trivia, part whacky physical challenges, Double Dare was like crack to kids because it involved literal hot messes in the forms of pies, slime, and all this other crud PLUS an obstacle course where you picked noses or rifled through oversized pancakes or ran around a giant hamster wheel! We watched a couple episodes, and it did not disappoint! We'll talk about how impressed we were with the level of trivia and how, let's face it, the girls dominated EVERY TIME, how we fondly remember Harvey the announcer and Robin the assistant, and how awesome the prizes were compared to cough cough Legends of the Hidden Temple where you got lollipops and shoes!

Happy summer guys! Since it's summer, we thought it would be apropos to do the first summer blockbuster of all time----1975's JAWS! Directed by our pal (and yours!) Stevie Spiels, Jaws tells the story of a killer fish run amok in the small seaside community of Amity Island. Chief Brody, city-slicker/land lubber threatens to close the beaches after a horrendous shark attack, but mayor Larry Vaughn wants to keep them open to reap all that tourist money. Unfortunately a lot of people die and Brody, sweet little Matt Hooper plus psychopath amateur shark hunter and drunk Quint, must find the shark and kill it. This movie made us shit our pants and Sweety still can't watch it all the way through without a pillow or other strategic means of eye covers. Join us as we talk about the scariest scenes, the best monologue of all time plus bonus we call Carol and she tells us what it was like seeing this in the theater in 1975....basically alone.

Happy Fourth of July from The Sweeties! With the holiday upon us, we decided it was the exact right time to trot out Independence Day, the pinnacle 90s film about aliens (in our not so humble opinion) AND the coolness that was Will Smith before he started doing "real" movies. So there are parts of this movie that are very cheesy and bad buttttt our general consensus was it's still pretty cool and stokes our patriotism fire even if our country is a hell of a hot mess right now. Though it still causes Sweety massive anxiety!  We'll talk about our own theories about the age old question of are there aliens, chat about the coolness factor of Sweety's first boyfriend aka Will Smith, as well as how we feel about Jeff Goldblum these days, and how Sweety thoughts Simon Rex was in this movie but it's actually Harry Connick Jr. Welcome to Earth!
