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!

Big day in Large Marge Sent Us world ... we've reached 200 episodes! In honor of this gigantic milestone we watched TITANIC! From 1997, and starring everyone's favorite floppy haired hero, Leonardo DiCaprio, Titanic was THE MOVIE of the decade.  The world collectively cried when Leo's icicle encrusted dead body sank into the frigid Atlantic, bought the double VHS box set, and belted out My Heart Will Go On for a good solid year there.  This movie is hella long but still pretty good albeit stressful to watch.  We'll talk about all the to-do around this movie back in the late 90s, why James Cameron is kiiiiiiind of a dick, and all our favorite weepy parts of the film. Thanks again to all our fans keeping us "afloat" for the last 200 episodes! We love ya and couldn't have done it without you!

After ponying up the cash for the DVD, we finally fulfilled a year long wish to watch Angels in the Outfield! Angels, from 1994, is the third movie in a trio of baseball movies for kids that came out in the early 90s! The world was crazy for baseball! Joseph Gordon Levitt stars as sweet baby faced Roger whose dead beat dad tells him they can be a family again once the California Angels win the pennant. Well Roger is a doer, and he prays immediately to God and says hey look help me out here, we need the Angels to win! Lo and behold God listens and actual angels come to turn the failing baseball team around, all the while increasing the team morale and attitude of the coach and players! GOD IS REAL. Haha. Okay maybe not and this movie might be hidden propaganda for the religious right, but it's awful cute and whoa look it's Tony Danza! Come listen as we chat about our favorite parts and favorite food at a baseball game, how JGL is the goober of the year, and how baseball really had its hey day in the 1990s and early 2000s.

How could we not cover a movie named after our beloved Sweety?! Andre, from 1995, is based on a true story about a sweet harbor seal who gets adopted by a the family of the harbor master in Rockport, Maine. This is a real good feel good flick and one we remember fondly.  Was it just us or was the early 90s full of films about incredible animals and their somewhat unnatural connection to humans? Starring 90s child babe Tina Majorino and randomly Joshua Jackson in his post Mighty Ducks, pre Dawson's Creek cute boy glory.  We'll talk about the difference between sea lions and seals, how show and tell was a pretty cool thing in school, and we maybe have figured out that Sweety is actually Andre the Seal reincarnated! You won't want to miss it!
