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!

1995's The Indian in the Cupboard is an adorable film! Based on the 1980 children's classic by Lynne Reid Banks, the story follows Omri, a little boy living in Brooklyn who receives a cupboard for his birthday and an Indian figurine from his friend Patrick.  His mom gives him a key from her key collection (who knew that was a thing!) and what do you know ... when he locks the Indian in the Cupboard he comes to life! Directed by Frank Oz, this movie has a lot of good life lessons including but not limited to, the lack of education and ignorance white people have or are taught about Native Americanas, having respect for other cultures, learning that people are not toys (even if they were toys at one point), and don't befriend a kid with a bowl cut named Patrick! We laughed, we cried, we jumped out of our seats (literally).

Disaster movies were all the rage in the 90s and Twister happens to be one of our favorites! From 1996 and starring Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt, Twister is a non stop thrill ride that follows a team of storm chasers trying to send up their newly created Dorothy machines into the eye of a tornado in order to help mankind. In the midst of all this you have a love triangle, lots of flying livestock, and Cary Elwes playing a villain! We'll talk about our fascination with tornadoes as little kids, even though we never encountered them living in the Northeast, how we need Helen Hunt in our lives again, and why the hell people live in a place called Tornado Alley!
