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!

Guys. It's our last Sequels September! We closed it off with a truly sweet sequel--My Girl 2! Released in 1994, My Girl 2 picks up the endearing story of Vada Sultenfuss now in her teenage awkward years, as she embarks on a quest to find out more about her mother in Los Angeles. While not as sad as the first one, My Girl 2 still delivers a healthy dose of tears, mostly in the form of Vada's mother singing the best rendition of 'Smile' EVER. So grab those tissues again and hear us talk about random things like that time we discovered that our father had been married before (gasp!), the magical story of how Ron and Carol first met, and hear us sing the first song that comes to mind in a little game we like to call, "Your friends awkwardly make you sing a song at a picnic...go!"

Nearly done with September Sequels! Tonight we tackle our first sequel musical and man, we gotta say, Grease 2 is NOT the word.  From 1982, Grease 2 stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Rex Manning and some D list T-Birds and Pink Ladies.  Grease 2 has all the high school musical shenanigans - bowling alley dance parties, bad sexual euphemisms, bunker seductions that go bust, a talent show that gets side tracked by a sad sack drama queen and don't forget the world's worst rip off of Danny Zuko we've ever seen.  Sorry, we're being harsh.  Grease 2 provides a ton of nostalgia and it's a great bad movie that we'll cherish till our dying day.  We'll review all the good bad songs, let Sweetie do a timed 1 minute rant about Adrian Zmed, and talk about who are favorite season is from the Calendar Girls musical number.  Cool rider baby. Cool rider.

Remember The Disney Afternoon?! You'd come home from school, grab your snack and plop yourself down in front of the TV to watch the most magical few hours of Television programming that ever existed....The Disney Afternoon! In this episode, we'll cover three of our favorites: Gummi Bears, Duck Tales, and Rescue Rangers and debate about which was our fave and why. We'll sing the theme songs at the top of our lungs and go off on a weird tangent about cereal. Come on and get cozy with us!

Next up in Sequels September is Waynes World 2 aka WW2 which as true Wayne's World's fans know, does NOT mean World War 2. Released in 1993 only a year after the previous film, WW2 picks up also a year later and finds Wayne and Garth moved out of their parents house and trying to make it in the real world as true 'adults'. Join us as we discuss a never ending list of Sweetie Confusions and discover that Sweetie is still very much confused about a few of them. We'll also look up some celebrity riders (cough cough Mariah Carey), and talk about how Aerosmith had a strange resurgence in the 90s.

Our next stop on the Sequels September train is the followup to the 1984 horror/comedy classic Gremlins.....that's right...Gremlins 2. Picking up again with Billy Peltzer and now fiance Kate, Gremlins 2 takes the Gremlins and places them smack dab in the middle of NYC, wreaking havoc on a suped up 90s technological superbuilding! What could go wrong? Straight talk you guys, this movie is NOT good, but we friggin loved it when we were kids. So join as we discuss: why we loved it so, what scenes scared us the most, and hear the classic tale of how Sweetie gets horribly confused and cannot tell the difference between Marathon Man, The Running Man, and Blade Runner.

Our next Sequels September flick is the followup to Look Who's Talking....aptly titled Look Who's Talking Too and damn it we love it. How can you go wrong with babies voiced by Bruce Willis, Roseanne Barr AND Damon Wayans....HOW?!?!?! OK so it's not an Oscar contender...but Mr. Toilet man is voiced by Mel Brooks you guys. Mel Brooks! So join us as we discuss some classic Sweetie segments, talk about our favorite NYC moments, and hear us sing a lot of really great songs because wouldn't you know it...this movie has a kick ass soundtrack (again!) We're all shook up over our strange love of Look Who's Talking. Sorry not sorry!

It's time for SEQUELS SEPTEMBER! A whole month where we cover amazing (but probably terrible sequels)! First up is the 1990 Sequel to the 80s classic The Neverending Story. Starring a young Jonathan Brandis, The Neverending Story 2 is...........pretty awful, but for some reason we remembered it fondly. Picking up sometime in the near future, Bastian is now a really annoying, horrible kid afraid of high diving who travels back to Fantasia to save the Childlike Empress (again) from 'The Emptiness" aka "The Nothing Part 2". Join us as we discuss: Xaida's (sp?) cool fashion sense, Bastian and Atreyu's weird forced friendship and hear Sweetie recount a story about that time Sweety missed Power Rangers and cried. Good times guys. Good times.
