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!

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.

Spooky Spookerson month continues with the spookiest family of them all and one of the better sequels to come out of the 90s, Addams Family Values! Our favorite macabre family is back in action, but this time Uncle Fester is lusting after the nanny, who turns out to be a homicidal maniac gold digger, the kids get shipped off to the summer camp from hell, they have a baby named Pubert (worst name ever!)?! Join us as we chat about our love for Joan Cusack, if Uncle Fester or Cousin It would be good in the sack, why Debbie picks a pumpkin colored bowl cut style for Fester's toupee, and whether or not we'd spend a night in the Addams' family creeptastic house!

Oct 21, 2017

Guys, it finally happened. We found a DVD player and treated ourselves to watching our favorite movie about a valley girl turned vampire slayer...Buffy (THE Vampire Slayer)! Released in 1992 and starring Kristi Swanson and Luke Perry, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of our favorite movies as kids and we're here to announce that it's still pretty awesome. Join us for a lively discussion about: what scenes scared us the most as kids, what makes this movie super 90s, and of course Sweetie Questions that will knock your chunky white socks with loafers off!

Oct 12, 2017

It's October, so we thought we'd do a few movies that scared the crap out of us as wee ones. First up is 1991's Silence of the Lambs and we hope we don't need to tell you that this movie is....amazing. A rare psychological thriller/horror film that won an Oscar, we first watched this in its edited version on TV. And when that magical time came when we watched the full version...boy were we confused. So join us as we discuss: how utterly fantastic Jodie Foster is, how Hannibal Lecter is the sweetest serial killer we know, and hear our new smash hit, "I don't want no seed pods"

Rejoice! Our first trilogy is complete! We watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and then cried because there are none left now (That's right, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull does NOT count!) Released in 1989, The Last Crusade brings together the powerhouse duo of Harrison Ford and Sean Connery and provides so many comedic moments that it's almost hard to count. Join us as we discuss our favorite parts, our favorite lines AND hear Sweetie sing her new favorite song: the Third Reich anthem (just kidding!) (but actually that is a catchy tune goddamn you Nazis.) Plus, catch a first listen of our new track "The Penitent Man (Kneel)" courtesy of Sweetie Records.

Listen as Sweetie spills all the deets on her Jeopardy experience including: the audition process, what meeting Alex was like and how frickin nervous she was! We'll answer questions posed by our Twitter followers and Sweetie will finally tell you all what the hell was up with that damn buzzer!!

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!

Sep 8, 2017

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.

It's time for another Bonus Episode! This time we're taking you back to the early 90s game show Nick Arcade. A technical marvel for the 90s, Nick Arcade put two teams of kids against each other as they battled for a chance to compete in the elusive Video Zone----a massive blue screen (green screen?) that allowed the contestants to be players in a video game. Join us as we discuss the strange pop quizzes (guess what's in this vice?) (Weird AF.), why Phil Moore was da bomb.com, and how we finally got to see what it was like behind the scenes of the Video Zone. Game on bitches.

Get your box of tissues ready, we're tackling one of the saddest movies on the planet....My Girl! Released in 1991, My Girl gives us a tour of Vada Sultenfuss's summer as an 11 year old girl coming of age in 1972. We'll talk about hard hitting subjects like: life and death, blue eye shadow (is there such a thing as too much?) (Answer: YES), why Bingo is a great game but also sometimes scary, and of course, Tubas---- The #1 instrument you probably shouldn't adopt as a recreational hobby. Bonus! Everyone's favorite segment 'Call Carol" returns! WARNING we talk about periods at the end. Also get over it though.

Aug 23, 2017

Get ready because we're bringing you THE best ever board game to movie adaptation on the planet....Battleship. Just kidding! Like we'd give two and a half shits about that trash. We're talking about Clue! The whodunit classic from 1985 that brought to life one of our favorite board games to play at boring family functions! Starring the ever amazing Tim Curry, Clue taught us that communism was only a red herring and ALSO that scarlet is actually red and not a nice teal green as Miss Scarlet's dress would have you believe. So join us for a rousing discussion on our favorite board games and hear Sweetie get in the weeds about who the cutest boy on the Dream Phone cards is.

Sneakers is the most underrated movie that came out of 1992 and we'll fight anyone to the death who thinks otherwise! People, this movie is the shit and not just because it has one of the best ensemble casts ever created - Robert Redford, Sidney Poitier, Dan Ackroyd, Ben Kingsley, River Phoenix, David Strathairn, James Earl Jones, NED RYERSON (Steven Tobolowsky) - but because it's about cool spying, hacking stuff, has an amazing score, and affirms the fact that you don't need sight to be a bad ass bitch. So if you haven't seen this movie yet - RENT IT - and then listen to our awesome podcast where we mostly just get boners talking about how great this movie is, why Ben Kingsley has 10 different accents, how Robert Redford is still a hottie, and why computer hacker movies are a lost art.  TOO MANY SECRETS.

Aug 14, 2017

This week we decided to leave the movie watching decision up to the fans and you picked: Back to the Future Part II! Released in 1989, the 2nd installment in Marty McFly's time traveling saga, takes us to the year 2015 and delivers the kind of futuristic excitement that only a movie made in the 80s could bring. And although we never got flying cars, auto-sizing clothes, power laces, OR a real hoverboard--we still love the sheer awesomeness that is an 80s version of 2015. Join us as we talk about the movie phenomena of kids looking exactly like their parents, how we were super spooked by the chaos strewn streets of the alternate 1985, and hear us exclaim about how we're basically stuck in an alternate version of 2017 right this very moment only instead of Biff running the world, we got Drumpf. So  put your lithium setting on high, we're going....forward in time! (And then back again) (and then back again again)

IT'S OUR ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!! We celebrated by drinking wine through straws, buying gross as fuck hair extensions from the dollar store AND watching Mrs. Doubtfire! NOT THE WORST DAY IN THE WORLD! Probably one of Robin William's most beloved films, released in 1993, Mrs. Doubtfire taught us all about divorce and what not to do in the event you aren't awarded joint custody of your children. Join us as we talk about the hijjinks that were involved when we tried to see this film in theaters in 1993, how this film could never be made today because it's a bit transphobic, how Stewart, while aggressively hot needs to fucking cool with his triple twist dive (that may or may not be a skating term), and we'll do a much deserved ode to Robin Williams, RIP. Thank you amazing fans for bringing us to one year!

It's time for another musical! Join us as we re-watch Bedknobs and Broomsticks and realize that it probably should have been called 'Mary Poppins But Not As Good". Released in 1971, B-knobs and B-sticks, stars the always adorable Angela Lansbury and Mr. Banks himself David Tomlinson and combines cartoons with live action for another thrilling magical adventure. We'll talk about many fascinating things including: why jerk face Charlie is essentially one of those pricky Gallagher brothers from Oasis, which songs and scenes are our favorite, and the thrilling tale of how a Jamaican steel drum band ends up on Portobello Road.  Grab your broomstick and mangy old sick cat and come get witchy with us!

Today we return to the magical land of Indiana Jones, as we dive into our least favorite of the Indy trilogy (no, we do not count Kingdom of the Crystal Skullz) The Temple of Doom! Released in 1984, is actually a prequel to Raiders, and although we kind of hate it, we do admit that it is ACTION PACKED. It's filled with nail biting 'how will they get out of this scenarios', elaborate set pieces, and the charming comic relief of Short Round. We'll talk about why we think it's commonly know as the least favorite of the Indy films, how Willie Scott single-handedly set the women's movement back by about 100 years, and Sweety tells a moving story about accidentally watching Lion without subtitles. So join us, and our bud Mola Ram as we venture into the Temple err....... cave-like structure thing of Doom!

In 1990, we were just teeny tykes. We liked our movies and our GRABOIDS. Tremors is the first horror movie to cross the Sweeties threshold, but one we've come to always enjoy both for its quality bromance between Val and Earl, the scary but not too scary sand snake things, and the cool lady scientist who wows them all! Join us as we deep dive into our thoughts on Kevin Bacon (with a special round of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon), how this movie compares to another man-eating franchise (Jaws!), how maybe there IS such a thing as too many sequels, and everyone's BURNING question (GET IT) about what is that zinc oxide stuff and why you don't rub it in like sunscreen.
