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!

Today we're bringing you guys another dance centric flick on Large Marge Sent Us, none other than Save the Last Dance, everyone's second favorite Julia Stiles film! From 2001, STLD tells the story of Sarah, a senior in high school from a small town in Illinois. She's auditioning for Julliard when her mother dies in a tragic car accident. So she's forced to move to the mean streets of Chicago and live with her Jazz Dad, Roy and she swears off ballet forever, convinced it was her fault her mother is dead!  She starts a new school and meets cool new black friends who teach her the art of hip hop dancing! She decides to try out for Julliard one more time, and this time she's going to nail that audition because she's got street smarts and a hot new boyfriend to give her pep talks from the wings! We were obsessed with this movie when it came out as it's basically made for white girls from the suburbs who want to be cooler than they really are.  It has a great soundtrack and a star turn by Kerry Washington in her first movie role as Derrick's sister Chenille. We'll talk about how we think Julia Stiles is maybe not the best actress but we sure do love her movies, our own memories of the tough times of high school, and play some of the songs from the killer sound track for you all. You all be trippin'!
