Get excited for the best body swap movie to come out of 1988! Not the most well known of the Savage September selections, but Vice Versa starring Judge Reinhold and Fred Savage holds a special place in the Sweetie's collective hearts mostly because it's the only movie where you'll find an 11 year old swearing like a sailor and drinking martinis aka a typical Saturday night for us! Just kidding. But we're not kidding about the fact that Fred Savage is at peak adorbs-ness here. So hold onto your freaky Thai statues, say I wish, and get ready to swap bodies with your 45 year old, overworked yuppie dad!!!
Wooga wooga wee, jacks! Released in 1988, Big has been a part of our family's favorite movie canon since oh...forever! Join us as we discuss the finer points of the flick like Zoltar's scary devil eyes, booby grabbing and what thing in Josh's phat loft style apartment you would most want to own! Note: We experienced some sound issues during this one and while we think we operated successfully enough on it there might still be some hiccups--so hang with it!
Look out, it's SAVAGE SEPTEMBER! This month we're diving head first into our favorite Fred Savage flicks. This week we're catching up with our buds Westley and Buttercup as we wax poetic about the ultimate cult classic: The Princess Bride. Made in 1987, the Princess Bride was a true family fave filled with sword fighting, giants and Rodents of Unusual Size. So grab your MLT sandwich and get ready to get Savage. September. Oh yeah.
The year was 1987. The place - Seattle, Washington. And the hero is the world's most famous Bigfoot, Harry! Harry and The Hendersons is a gem and a half as far as 80s cinema classics go and taught us not to judge a Bigfoot by its.....big feet? Starring the always electric John Lithgow, Harry and the Hendersons stomped into our hearts and never let go. Join us as we unpack it, one smelly mythologized beast at a time!
I know YOU are but what am I? We are Large Marge Sent Us and Pee Wee's Big Adventure is one of our favorite, favorite films so much so that we named our totally awesome podcast after a pivotal character! So buckle up and get ready for a thoughtful yet somewhat silly deep dive into Tim Burton's 1985 masterpiece featuring everyone's favorite man-child, Pee Wee Herman! FYI our intro got cut off so you've been warned. Ack, technical difficulties of your amateur podcaster!
We're taking it back to 1987 this week, with The Chipmunk Adventure, everyone's favorite animated romp that involves unrealistic world travel with unsupervised chipmunk children via hot air balloons! Large Marge Sent Us dives in so get your diamond dolls and high pitched voices ready!
Released in 1984, The NeverEnding Story taught us how imagination triumphs over all, stealing books from cranky old men will get you far, and never, ever take your horse into the Swamp of Sadness. Sweetie and Sweety break it down, one luck dragon at a time.
Released in way back when 1993, Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park is an integral part of the Sweetie Movie Canon. We were 10 and 6 years old when our parents dragged us to this whopper of a good time movie and we proceeded to poop our pants and cry out of sheer terror. 23 years later it's one of our favorite films and the one we thought most appropriate for our inaugural episode.
