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!

Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken was a Disney film from 1991, based on the true story of Sonora Webster Carver, who made a name for herself diving off a 40 foot platform into a 11 foot deep pool of water on a HORSE! The real kicker was ... she was blind! Crazy shit. This movie traces her life from poor, orphaned girl living with her aunt and albino sister in rural Georgia, to spitfire girl who will stop at nothing to be the next diving girl in Dr. Carver's famous side show act! Girls born in the 80s LOVED this film. I don't know if it was the horses, the fun 30s outfits, or the cute love story between Sonora and Al, but we were smitten kittens.  Join us as we talk about our love for 30s fashion and how we kinda wouldn't mind going back and time to live the Depression life, how Sonora is a bad ass and we love stories about spitfire independent gals who won't take no for an answer, and how the hell do you train a horse to jump off a platform into a pool of water!

1995's Se7ven is one creepy movie and one of Sweety's favorites! Directed by David Fincher and set in unknown city USA, which is crime ridden and dank, dark and depressing, Se7en follows two detectives, Somerset and Mills as they play cat and mouse with a vicious serial killer, set on exposing the sinful by preying on those who are committing the Seven Deadly Sins, i.e., Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Lust, Pride, Envy, and Wrath. This movie scared the FUCK out of us, not so much with its horror but with it's incredibly spooky sense of place and gross imagery.  Starring our pals,  Morgan Best Actor Ever Freeman, Brad Okay Actor Pitt, Kevin I'll Play Anyone Creepy Spacey, and Gwyneth Why Do People Hate Me Paltrow. We'll talk about how Sweety first got introduced to this film and why she loves it so hard, what we think of David Fincher's work in general, and Sweetie will go on a less than 10 minute rant of why she doesn't GET Brad Pitt.  What's in the box?? What's in the box?!!!!

Do the Care Bear Countdown! 5, 4, 3, 2, 1! Every 80s kids remembers the Care Bears, the cute little multi colored bears with symbols on their bellies that promoted love, friendship and downright caring! Well in 1985, due to the success of the stuffed animals they made a movie! The Care Bears Movie is about the importance of friendship, and how just because an evil spirit in a book tries to convince you that ruling the world is better than having tons of friends, you should not believe her! The dumb bitch didn't even have a body! We liked this movie a lot as children but was also pretty terrified of it.  Tune in as we discuss who are favorite Care Bear was then and now, all the ins and outs of Care-alot and the Care Bear world, and we'll discuss other 80s cartoons that were made into movies that we also loved.
