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!

 The house is going to be great! Famous last words in this hilarious comedy from 1986, which was a very good year indeed because our sweet Sweety was born! We loved this film as kids, and heck we don't even know why because what did we know about home repair? But now that we're seasoned HGTV watchers, we totally get the plight of Walter and Ana, as they deal with the never ending nightmare of a reno project but also how this tests their fragile relationship that was unknowingly filled with massive trust issues! Wow, this is heavy.  Listen in as we chat about all the secondary characters we loved, sing multiple rounds of the "The Name Game" Song (Anna Banna Bobanna etc), and wax on endlessly about the comedic brilliance of the one, the only Tom Hanks!

As two Sweeties who were in the prime of the Boy Band resurgence in the 90s, we fully support and LOVE That Thing You Do! with every fiber of our being. Written and directed by Tom Hanks (Sweetie Club member and alumni), That Thing You Do! tells the tale of The Wonders' quick rise to fame in 1964. Join us as we discuss why Jimmy is probably most definitely a serial killer, our own experiences with boy band mania, and hear Sweety sing all the songs from the soundtrack.

Straight talk you guys. If you don't find Babe to be the cutest movie that ever existed....you might be a terrorist. Just sayin. Join us as we relive this cute AF movie and talk all about how it warmed our hearts and souls. We'll get angered by its Oscar snub, reenact our favorite Gay Cow moments, and wonder if Babe 2 Pig in the City is worth watching. We'll also continue to be confused at why we thought this movie was supposed to take place in the UK and pour one out for Christine Cavanaugh who sadly passed away in 2014. That'll do pig. That'll do.

Do you hear that drumming? It's a new episode all about your favorite book about a game turned movie, turned game----JUMANJI!!! Released in 1995 and starring the always endearing Robin Williams, Jumanji taught us that board games can sometimes be dangerous and that comedically placed Monkeys won't save bad CGI no matter how wily you make them. Join us as we discuss which game obstacle was our favorite, why they chose to make the same actor play the mean scary hunter and Alan's dad, and hear us mix up the name Alan and Peter the entire time!

Great day! Great day! WE DID ANOTHER MUSICAL!

Sweetie's third favorite musical is ANNIE, and oh boy was she excited today! From 1982, Annie is the lovable story about an orphan with a heart of gold and literally a gold heart locket, who warms the heart of the Depression era, Republican, money loving Daddy Warbucks! The songs are famous! The red headed wig is famous! What's not to love?  Tune in as we warble through all 13 musical numbers, discuss the idea of Miss Hannigan as a sympathetic villain, whether Daddy Warbucks and Grace's relationship was really workplace appropriate, and dissect the really unfortunate racial stereotypes that seem to plague all our beloved 80s films. Womp, womp. Tomorrow! Tomorrow! Don't wait to listen to this podcast until tomorrow! It's only a download awayyyyyyy.
