We've had a hankering for Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery forever and lucky for you today is the day that we dive into the ins and outs of penis enlargers! Austin Powers came out in peak Mike Myers era where the guy could do no wrong - so much so he made three Austin Powers movies in the span of a couple years and man were they funny! Much like the rest of the world, we were Groovy Babying all through the late 90s and early 2000s! This movie is still hilariously funny and Mike Myers combination of clever pop culture centric humor and physical comedy is what legends are made of. We'll talk about our favorites scenes and what lines we still repeat to this day, dive into the dark underworld of today's penis enlargers (not necessarily Swedish made), and Sweetie has trouble pronouncing the word acclimatizing! Help, I'm in a nut shell! How'd I get into this bloody nutshell!?
Merry Christmas from the Sweeties! We'd thought we'd do one more Xmas themed film to whet your Oscar Meyer Weenie Whistle! From 1994, The Santa Clause starring Tim Allen is about a sad dad named Scott Calvin who becomes the new Santa Claus, once the old Santa Claus falls off his roof and kicks the bucket. At first Scott is in denial, but with the help of his sweet always believing son Charlie, turns into a pretty good Santa and in the process a pretty good dad as well! How heartwarming! This movie is full of 90s goodness and while we have a lottta questions, we give this the Sweetie stamp of approval as a solid Xmas flick! We'll talk about some of our favorite Xmas memories, what we think of Tim Allen and his criminal record from 1978, and whether it's roof or ruff. Happy holidays from the Sweeties!
Sweetie and Sweety think you should definitely get rid of your family because they are trash. Go live with Mr. Duncan or maybe the pigeon lady (Maggie?) in the park....your life will be better and people will appreciate you. K bye.
To get in the Christmas spirit, we're covering a couple holiday films including this beloved sequel, Home Alone 2! The unbelievability is off the charts with this one as Kevin is somehow left behind on a family trip again and runs into his old nemeses the Wet Bandits now known as the Sticky Bandits in NYC. Join us for a rousing discussion of why the McCallisters are dumb as it gets, why the biggest plot hole in this movie involves a stick of Zebra Stripe gum, and how Marv and Harry should have died 20 times over by the end of the film. Happy Christmas to all you Sweeties out there!
We weren't sure if many people were aware of this gem from 1988, but I hope we'll be pleasantly surprised that many LMSU fans are also fans of the movie F.E.D.S.! Following the success of the Police Academy movies, the buddy cop genre blew up and F.E.D.S. was the amazing, feminist version! Starring Rebecca De Mornay and Mary Gross as FBI trainees and unlikely bff's - one is a Marine, the other a "pecker head" - but together they make an amazing team and try to dismantle the patriarchy known as the FBI!. This film is a Dumas family classic, and one we quote often and at length! We used to get goose pimples during all the amazing montages of the ladies getting shit done and 20 years later we still do! We'll talk about all our favorite scenes, how the 80s did gift us some amazing feminist films all about female empowerment, and Sweetie brings up the Presidential Fitness test AGAIN, and how bullshit it was to make elementary school kids do a pull up!
