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!

Bring it On from 2000 was a huge hit! Choreographed dances, clever cheerleading puns, and girls in mid drift tops?! What is not to love?? Starring Kirsten Dunst as Torrence Shipman (craziest name ever) who takes over as cheerleading captain senior year for the Rancho Carne Toros, only to find out her predecessor Big Red stole their cheer routines from the East Compton Clovers! What will we doooo? Bring it On belongs in the realm of several high school comedies that came out in the late 90s, early 2000s and that we all went gaga for. We could not get enough of those spirit fingers or phrases like "Missy is the poo. So take a big whiff!". We'll talk about our feelings about cheerleading, our love/hate/now mostly love for Ms. Kirsten Dunst and how this movie is really a movie about white privilege that attempts to give a happy ending to all parties. Plus we'll continue one of our favorite segments aka This is So 90s, where we talk about things that defined this brilliant decade like the new VW bugs, platform flip flops, and posters of Sugar Ray.

We'd thought it was time to go back to the 80s for our next movie selection, and more specifically 1985 when Teen Wolf starting Michael J. Fox was released! Sweety has never seen this pretty class 80s movie about a high schooler with zero self confidence and debatable basketball skills, who discovers he's actually a werewolf! Turns out everyone in school thinks it's pretty cool and lucky for him it also gives him magical powers to be basically good at anything.  So he sky rockets in popularity, gets the hot girl he's been ogling, but unfortunately becomes kind of a tool in the process.  Turns out it's better just to be yourself - and not hog the basketball - you'll make more friends that way! The Sweeties declare this a bad good movie in that it's totally cheesy and kind of a mess, but a feel good flick nonetheless! We'll try to get to the bottom of the rules of this werewolf stuff, talk about how we think Boof is the coolest female character ever, and how much we love Michael J. Fox in basically everything he does. BONUS we talk about all the great 80s trends and werewolf penis! Ahoooooooo!

Time for another 90s teen rom com! What Sweety deems her favorite high school teen movie, She's All That has got some problemos but we do love it. Trotting out the tale as old as time of man makes "ugly" girl beautiful and everyone loves her for the person she's always been we ate this shit up, much to our chagrin. I mean give us a makeover scene to a Six Pence None the Richer song and we're yours. We are weak! Starring Rachel Leigh Cook, Freddie Prinze Jr, Paul Walker, Matthew Lillard, Lil Kim (what?), Usher (what? what) and a really embarrassing hacky sack scene, we'll get pretty ranty about this one and talk about why the hell Hollywood thought glasses, a unibrow, and a funny name made you the ugly loser of the school, whose high school had a DJ and did they ever go to class, and why Freddie Prinze Jr. was the hottest shit in the mid to late '90s. Was it his perfectly waxed eyebrows and spiky gelled hair? We'll get into it one tube top at a time!
