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!

Move over Field of Dreams.....A League of Their Own is the best damn baseball movie EVER. We'll bet all of our Rockford Peach baseball cards! ALoTO, from 1992 and directed by Penny Marshall chronicles the history of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, a time from 1943 to 1954 when WOMEN played BASEBALL professionally because all of the men were at war! This movie will make you laugh, cry, hug your sister, and reminds you how awesome Tom Hanks and Gena Davis are.  We've seen this movie 1000 times with (or without sound) and love it so. Come on and listen to us do fine renditions of "We're the members of the All American League..." and "This Used to be Be My Playground", discuss if Dottie dropped the ball on purpose or just had a really bad day, which Rockford Peach we like the most, and how the big band soundtrack and women kicking baseball butt in several montages gives us the internal goosebumps just like when we saw Wonder Woman! PS We kept calling the pitcher Ellen Sue, Sue Ellen because we're both still on a high from our Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter is Dead episode.

If you didn't think Will Smith was the coolest thing EVER in 1997, then you can just leave right now. Men in Black represents a key point of the Will Smith action comedy oeuvre, right next to Independence Day and Wild Wild West.  We saw this movie multiple times in the movie theaters when it came out and worshipped Will Smith in all his jumpsuited glory (hey he was even Sweety's fake boyfriend for a couple years!). Bear with us as our synopsis goes off the rails a little bit, but stay for the in depth discussion of the creepiness of Vincent D'Onofrio, our forever love for Tommy Lee Jones, the MIB tag game Sweety came up with for her gym class, and Sweetie's many warblings of the Men in Black theme song.

Alright Silver Snakes, it's time to grab those jungle vines, swing across a big pool of dry ice induced fog, and earn the right to scamper through LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE. Airing from 1992 to 1994 on Nickelodeon, Legends of the Hidden Temple was the show for you if you could master a cargo net, had good listening comprehension skills when a giant rock sculpture told you a boring ass story about a lost Mesopotamian artifact AND if you didn't pee your pants when a temple guard jumps out of a dark corner! Join us as we discuss how drunk the host must have been to film 200 of these bad boys over 2 years, how shitty the prizes were (Hush Puppies, AGAIN!?), and how most of the boy contestants seemed jerky and probably have ghosted 25 girls on Tinder by now.  Don't forget your life pendants ....it's time to relive Legends!

After two botched attempts back in November, we're FINALLY re-recording our Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's episode. Rejoice!!! This flick was a family classic that we'd watch every time it came on TV and although it gave us false hopes about how our adulthood would turn out, it still made us appreciate so much. It taught us important life lessons like, how to do QED reports (make your nice friend do them!), how to send a fax (wait for that same nice friend and then copy her!) all while jamming to some amazing soundtrack work. Join us as we discuss these lessons plus other important things like Brian's 'classic wedge cap' and how delightful Katrina is at whipping up excitement in her boots. We're right on top of that Rose!

Sexual Chocolate. SEXUAL CHOCOLATE! Tonight we watched one of Sweetie's favorite comedies---Coming to America! Starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall in about 5 roles apiece. Join us as we discuss the finer points of 80s fashion (Scrunchies AKA 'Bouffies (sp?)), how awesome McDonald's used to be and hear us do our very best Randy Watson impressions. We'll also relive Sweetie's worst job of all time. Trust us, you don't want to miss that.

They're here! The Sweeties are back and watching the first scary movie that ever truly spoke to us as children. Poltergeist scarred us for life when it brought us traumatic scenes like men peeling their faces off, scary AF clown dolls coming alive to strangle us, and grotesque skeletons swimming in a muddy pool. As adults we've come to love the movie and all of its Craig T. Nelson and Jo-Beth Williams glory and we'll never forget it. So join us as we: discuss our various theories on what exactly the 'other side' looks like, share our favorite lines we like to use in everyday situations AND lament Stephen's mansplaining and poor decision making. Do NOT go into the light you guys. Unless the light is listening to this episode in which case...RUN TO THE LIGHT BABY!
