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!
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?
