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!

Tawanda!!!!! Time to head over The Whistle Stop Cafe for some Fried Green Tomatoes! From 1991, another great southern women rock movie based on the book by Fannie Flagg! This episode goes out to our fan friend Nikki, as it's one of her favorites, and while not as familiar to the Sweeties other than the traumatizing AF kid gets boot stuck in train track while steaming train comes along scene, we really love it for its depiction of female solidarity and friendship and love both sexual and platonic and it's depiction of the south during the 20s and 30s where it was fucking ROUGH for women but downright fucked up for black people.  Some great acting by Jessica Tandy, Kathy Bates and the two triple named Mary's plus a small bit with adorable fetus Chris O'Donnell! We'll talk about if Idgie Threadgood is really Jessica Tandy (come on, it is her right?), if we've ever tried a fried green tomato before, and how movies about domestic violence like this one and the ones on Lifetime Television for Women really stuck with us!
