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!

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.

Happy Friday guys! Your 90s cult classic has arrived! Empire Records was a BIG movie for anyone who was a kid in the 1990s. Who didn't wanted to work at a cool indie record store and be friends with the likes of Gina, Lucas, Corey, AJ, Berko, Deb, Mark, Eddie, and even spastic Warren? This movie is like a hot water bottle sent straight from 1995, that makes us so nostalgic for plaid mini skirts, men with semi long hair (mobs?), condom caps, and Gameboys.  Join us as we chat about how every girl wanted to be Rene Zellweger singin' Sugar High, what boy from The Empire Records staff we would want to date today, and we make some wild predictions on what all the characters would be doing in 2018. Hot take. Mark may be dead.

Continuing this new fun trend we have of watching 80s and 90s films loosely related to current Oscar frontrunners (see our episode about The Cutting Edge and I, Tonya) tonight we watched everyone's favorite fish out of water film, Splash, as we found it has a near identical plot to The Shape of Water! Directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah, Splash is a rom com with a fishy twist.  Mermaid saves man, then man saves mermaid, but not before she steals his heart! We drank too many margaritas so had a sugar high and giggled a lot but come along and listen to us stumble through this crazy ass plot, talk about our fondness for mermaids and mermaid lore, crack up over the plot to the TV movie sequel Splash Too, and how we were really disappointed with Tom Hank's character for 10 minutes in this movie and that was enough to ruin our lives.

Our week long celebration of our 100th episode continues and we're going way, way back to when Hayley Mills ruled the day! The Parent Trap from 1961 gave a lot of kids of divorced parents false hope as two separated at near birth twin sisters Susan and Sharon meet at a summer camp and concoct a plan to get their parents Mitch and Maggie back together despite being a horrible couple who fights a lot and probably have nothing in common! We LOVED Hayley Mills as a kid and enjoyed chatting about all the twins in our lives, whether we would want to live with mom in Boston (HELL YES) or with dad in California (hmm after this winter maybe) and Sweety spills the unfortunate beans that she kind of maybe likes the remake with Lindsay Lohan better! Blasphemy says Sweetie! We dedicate this episode to our first fan Jen as she just had twin babies of her own in December! Thank you Jen for being our first fan that made us realize that more people were listening to us other than our mother!

YOU GUYS IT'S OUR 100th EPISODE!!!! We're celebrating by watching The Return of the Jedi and basking in the cuteness of Ewoks. We don't care if you hate them, we just want to know where we can get one. Join us as we talk about why this was our favorite Star Wars movie as kids, why Obi "Don't Call me Ben" Kenobi is a shifty liar, and review the abomination that is Hayden Christensen and why he wasn't content with just ruining 3 Star Wars movies. Fun fact: Apparently when you turn into a weird egg-head Evil Sith lord, you can decide if you want to look like your young boyish self or an old person. Who knew!?

Toe pick! We love figure skating more than just about everything else in the world, so it was clear to us that in order to celebrate the release of I, Tonya---we had to watch the Cutting Edge! Warning: This podcast contains a lot of chatter, tears, and good memories as we dive into the golden age of figure skating...so make sure your laces are tight.

In 1995, a little movie came out that was a cautionary tale about the dangers of the internet, identity theft, and why you should never ever drink a Gibson martini with a handsome British man in Cancun who claims his favorite movie is Breakfast at Tiffany's. The Net, despite its horrible title (yo, no one calls it the "net" anymore, if we ever did) is a GREAT film.  We used to watch this on good old HBO and instantly wanted to be coders and couldn't wait for the days when we could order our pizza online!  Join us as we discuss how much we miss floppy disks, how Sandra Bullock's Angela Bennett is one bad ass bitch slash smart cookie, and how Dennis Miller was a rando choice for a self centered ex boyfriend character with an unfortunate penicillin allergy.  Happy New Year!
