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!

GIANTS! GIANTS! GIANTS! Dude. We hate football but we love the Little Giants. So come celebrate Super Bowl Sunday in the best way possible by getting drunk and watching the Little Giants with us! Made in 1994, and starring Rick Moranis (Best, most adorable movie Dad of all time) and Ed O'Neill, (Kind of hot in that tight shorts, aviator shades, gum chewing way) The Little Giants is a feel-good sports movie about a rag-tag group of misfits who don't know a ton about football but don't really give a fuck. It celebrates woman power thanks to Becky the ICEBOX and re-re-awakens Sweetie's sexual appetite with Devon Sawa! So grab your football gear, cheerleader's skirt and Go-Kart and GO GIANTS!

Milk Money, released in 1994, is the heartwarming tale about a young boy who grew up without a mother but who also loves boobs, so goes to the Big City with $100 saved to hunt for boobs + a mother.  Yes, this plot is insane but this movie is not! Starring Ed Harris and Melanie Griffith, Milk Money has been a favorite of the Sweeties from day one, not only because we love stories about prostitutes with a heart of gold but also because this movie is highly entertaining! Listen along as we discuss whether or not we could be prostitutes, the finer points of Ed Harris's career, and our real life struggles with milk money. Did you prefer chocolate or whole? We tackle it all and shockingly do absolutely no singing! (Your loss or is it?!)

What a feeling! That's right we watched Flashdance and are now dancing all over the place wearing our black leotards, legwarmers and baggy gray sweatshirts! Join us as we discuss the 1983 classic that turned everyone into maniacs (on the floor). We'll list the many reasons Mawby's Bar is probably the best place to work in Pittsburgh, talk at length about Jennifer Beals fierce fashion statements AND decide whether or not listening to the Flashdance soundtrack on repreat everyday is too much (spoiler: it's not).

Get out of our dreams! Get into our car! Just kidding we don't own cars but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the 80s realness that is 1988's License to Drive! Join us as we discuss what happens when you fail your drivers test, lie about it, steal your Grandpa's car and take the hottest girl in school out for a wild night on the town. We'll decide who is the fairer Corey, get confused about the rules and regulations of the California DMV, AND share some of our very own learning to drive stories!

Money can't buy you love BUT it can get you pretty darn close....am I right?! That's right, we're talking about the 1987 Teen rom-com classic--Can't Buy Me Love starring a baby Patrick Dempsey in all his flopsy mop glory! Join us as we play "Things I'd Rather Buy for $1,000", name some other movies named after songs and vent about the totally ugly white suede fringe outfit that is the driving plot point of the entire movie!! So grab your beret and start practicing your African Anteater dance, it's time to get spazzy!

E.T. phone home? More like E.T. you're terrifying and we could never watch this movie because it freaked us the fuck out! Here at Large Marge Sent Us, we were a bit young to appreciate the finer points of this Steven Spielberg classic which came out in 1982 and was the highest grossing movie until another Spielberg blockbuster broke that record (Jurrassic Park!). Tune in as we talk about the great 80s nostalgia that surrounds this film, how much the E.T. death thing freaked us out, how confused were were then (and now!) by this plot, and how we had our own Sweetie E.T. moment when we raised our own beta fish, who preceded to die a couple days later and then came to life and flew back to their spaceship! Just kidding. We buried them in our backyard. Elllliiiiiiiotttttttt.

Seeing Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell trending in the news because they are the only Hollywood couple still together is sad AF, but it also reminded us of one of our very favorite movies--Overboard! Released in 1987, Overboard taught us that a housekeeper/slave can easily be obtained as long as you know that someone has a birthmark on their butt, and that ALL women intuitively know how to cook and clean (it just takes practice). OK OK, you're right we're being mean. Even though Overboard is slightly creepy plotwise, it still is one hilarious flick and we can't get enough. So grab your sequined wardrobe out of your oak closet (nay-- CEDAR!) and come get short fat and slutty with us!

Big news you guys! Our big sister Liz has given birth to a sweet sweet nugget baby and in honor of our recent Auntie status, we are bringing you our favorite movie about babies of all time----Baby Boom! Baby Boom may have been released in 1987, but it still holds up as a testament to the struggles working mothers deal with everyday. Plus it has one of our very favorite people, Diane Keaton! So come join us as we wax poetic about some full blown patriarchal bullshit AND get ready for a brand new segment finally coming to fruition--- "Ask Carol" We are SO excited about this and you better be too.

You guys, Carrie Fisher died! We are so dismayed and wanted to cheer up by watching Star Wars (and silently crying). Star Wars means more to the us than just about anything else in our lives and we're excited but terrified to finally talk about it. Hopefully we can do it justice and make Carrie proud. We'll hum a lot of great theme songs, play a fun and challenging game about theme songs AND discuss our very first memories about watching Star Wars! Get ready for some Tosche station realness ya'll!

Happy Christmas from the Sweeties to you. We're bringing you the 1984 non-traditional Christmas classic flick Gremlins! Starring the cutest Mogwai in the biz---Gizmo! Although we're more familiar with Gremlins 2, we loved re-watching the original and bathed in all its dark, scary glory! Join us as we get confused about why Billy's dad thought a Mogwai would be a the perfect present for a guy that already owns a dog (?), and why no one else seems confused or excited about the introduction of a new species. Also, we'll sing a N'Sync Christmas classic and annoying electric supplier scammers interrupt us at the end of our podcast. Christmas surprises for everyone!

Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! The Sweeties are sick of Christmas, so we decided to watch Beetlejuice and call it a night. Released in 1988, Beetlejuice is Tim Burton's classic flick about ghosts, demons, and shrimp hands and boy did it scare the crap out of the Sweeties! Starring Michael Keaton as the bio-exorcist, Geena Davis in a horrible printed house dress, and a slim and trim Alec Baldwin, Beetlejuice introduces us to some friendly ghosts (for the love of god not Casper!) and an alternative to the whole heaven/hell thing. We'll discuss a possible Alec Baldwin reading disability, shit that scared us the most, and how Delia should dump sculpting and become an accessory designer instead.  Hat game on point! 

Dec 15, 2016

Merry Christmas ya filthy animals. The Sweeties are bringing you the seminal Christmas favorite about home invasion and booby traps--Home Alone! Released in 1990 Home Alone taught us that you should always give the creepy snow shoveling old man a chance, the furnace in your basement is not out to get you, and being home alone is nice for awhile but mean burglars may be out to kill you.  We'll discuss some definite plot holes, does Chevy Chase pronounce his name Chevy (like the car) or Chevy (like no word I know) and what happened to the pizza guy?! Bonus: free style rapping that goes amok plus a new segment "Large Marge Sent Us" Alumni! Hooray!

Look out it's time to discuss the groundbreaking and highly well-known Christmas flick of 1986---BABES IN TOYLAND. A TV movie starring Keanu Reeves and Drew Barrymore, how can it get any better?! OK OK we're kidding only about 5 people know of this movie because it's pretty bad but still amazing in its own right. Come join us to discuss the uselessness of Little Joey, how this might just be Keanu Reeves' best role to date (seriously) and if we'd rather date Zack or Mack. The Christmas season has begun come join the Sweeties and get cozy!

Happy 25th Episode! We celebrated by sliding down giant blades of grass and taking joy rides on giant bees. Just kidding---we watched Honey I Shrunk the Kids! Released in the 'Golden Age' of 1989, Honey I Shrunk the Kids stars Rick Moranis and some other people and gave us a real awareness of the fragility of ants and how much of a dick scorpions are. Join us as we discuss the finer points.... WHY was Little Russell the least appealing love interest of all time? DID Amy ever get to go to the Mall? WHAT are 'plumbing issues'. So come on over and get shrunk with us!

Join us as we celebrate the spook and macabre that is The Addams Family! Released in 1991, we were lucky enough to own this treasure on VHS (thanks to the golden era of McDonalds) which allowed us to practice our Mamushka as long as we needed to. (Sorry more parentheses but please turn your attention to that scene to catch the hilarious stunt double that in no way, shape, or form resembles Raul Julia!) Gold star for anyone who counts how many times we use the word 'macabre' during this episode!

We're back home on the Cape and bringing you a special episode recorded from our Mom's basement! Join us as we talk about one of Sweetie's best hangover remedies--The Karate Kid! Released in 1984, the Karate Kid taught us about the importance of waxing on AND off plus it introduced us to the teenage paradise of Golf N' Stuff which got rid of its waterslide but is probably still cool. So grab your bonsai tree and ready your crane pose so we can kick some butt!

Nobody puts Baby in the corner. And nobody told the Sweeties when they were little that Dirty Dancing is a thinly veiled cautionary tale about abortion rights.  Just kidding! It's about dancing you fools.  Dirty Dancing to be precise.  We really had the TIME OF OUR LIVES talking all about Patrick Swayze's hotness factor (RIP), how we wanted Jennifer Grey's fancy schmancy ballroom dancing shoes, and break down the psychological reasons why the sister Lisa was a big old bitchy mcbitchster throughout most of the movie.  So join hands, hearts, and voices. Voices, hearts, and hands. At Large Marge Sent Us we talk about movies that we were too young to be watching but did anyways because our parents were awesome and didn't care. Truth.

ARE Earth Girls Easy? The answer is yes! Join the Sweeties as they watch one of their favorite movie musicals of all time--1989's Earth Girls Are Easy starring mega-babe Geena Davis and Sexy (?) Jeff Goldblum. In this episode we have a cow when we realize that Michael McKean was Woody the surfer bum pool guy, we lament about the lost art of the dance off, and we swoon over Jim Carrey's sexy years. So come sing along and shake it all night with us.

The election results made us want to die so we needed a movie that would make us laugh and feel better stat! Look Who's Talking did the trick because how can talking babies not make you feel better? Released in 1989 and directed by the fantastic Amy Heckerling, Look Who's Talking taught us that the 90s was a very unsafe time to be a baby and that pregnancy tests were actually small science experiments done in the comforts of your bathroom. Join us as we reminisce about the good old days of non-creepy John Travolta and what happens when you eat too much fruit.

Nobody leaves this place without singin' the blues--and nobody leaves Large Marge Sent Us without watching Adventures in Babysitting. Not only is it a fantastic movie but it's one of TWO movies about babysitting that Keith Coogan starred in. What are the odds? We've always loved this movie and never hesitate when asked to sing a few bars of 'Babystting Blues'. So grab your Thor costume, your gloves and official Joe Gipp blue leather jacket, it's time to go babysitting! 

Nov 3, 2016

In honor of John Candy's birthday, we decided to kick November off with one of our family faves--Uncle Buck! Released in the golden age of great movies (1989) Uncle Buck is a John Hughes movie that furthers the stereotype of the dangers of Chicago. Remember kids...don't go to bowling alleys alone! We loved this movie as kids and still love it today. Who wouldn't? Join us as we discuss the finer moments---giant pancakes, creepy men at bowling alleys and public transportation conundrums. PLUS special cameos and bad birthday singing. What more could you want?

Oct 27, 2016

Holy crap you guys we love Teen Witch more than just about anything. Released in 1989, Teen Witch taught us the value of a well placed scrunchie, the spell to conjure winds AND how to get the rich man's Tom Cruise to fall in love with you. We ask important questions like: DID Louise and Brad do it in the weird house? ARE Polly and Louise still friends? And most importantly... IS Shana upset that she gave her most prized possession to a random girl she doesn't know? Join us on this magical adventure and sing along with the Sweeties as we round out our Halloween month right! TOP THAT. 

Oct 24, 2016

Released in 1995, Casper is the sequel to Now and Then, where Devon Sawa's character dies in a sledding incident and comes back to haunt Christina Ricci. Just kidding. It's a movie about a lame white ghost who is friendly and stalks a living human being. Sorry to say, the Sweeties do not like this movie. At all. It's not our fault nothing makes sense and they included too many plot points for their own good. Join us, as we vent about how this movie is too willy nilly about death and complain about how Christina Ricci had a really hard time fake crying in the 90s. Hey, they can't all be hits!

Oct 23, 2016

BOOGEDY! BOOGEDY! BOO! We watched Mr. Boogedy every time it came on TV, which probably explains why we have a deep seeded fear of pilgrims and bad wigs. Released in 1986, Mr. Boogedy was part of the Walt Disney's Magical World of Color series and it was a doozy. Hilarious, scary, clever---it has it all! Plus, Kristy Swanson, sticky green footprints, and spooky music. What's not to love!?

Oct 18, 2016

Come little listeners, I'll take thee away...into a land of witches and Hocus Pocus! The Sweeties are back to talk about everyone's favorite Halloween flick Hocus Pocus! Released in 1993, The Sanderson Sisters really left us feeling envious of their excellent bosoms and singing ability but we love them all the same. Join us as we struggle to remember Omri Katz's name, sing a lot, AND talk about our favorite parts and what really made us cringe in terror (pointy shoes yuck!). We put a spell on you and now you have to listen....mwahaha!
