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!

We're paying tribute to Joel Schumacher who died a couple weeks ago at the age of 81 by covering The Lost Boys! Yippee another vampire flick! So while this movie didn't totally shape our childhood - hey one of us had never even seen it! - we're all about any movie featuring The Coreys, vampires who look like they belong in a hair band, and garbage fire outdoor concerts featuring lead singers who can benchpress 400 pounds but also play the saxophone! Who is with us!? We'll talk about what bits of vampire lore this film stuck with, how Santa Cruz really was the murder capital of the world at one point, and how Kiefer Sutherland is still the scariest person ever, with or without vampire makeup on.

The Watcher in the Woods, a spooky thriller from Disney that came out in 1980, scared the bleep out of us when we were little kids! Nearly 40 years later, it's not super duper scary but has a great vibe and air about it - that still creeps us out! Starring Bette Davis as creepy old lady who is in desperate need of some VO5 hot oil and that girl from Ice Castles! We'll talk about our love of ghosts and how we hope to see one some day, how the ending of this movie is pretty whack a doodle, and how excited we are to finally be podcasting together AGAIN! WAHOOOOO. Sweetie's Together, yeah!

The 80s had a preoccupation with virginity and never was it more apparent than Once Bitten, this 1985 campy vampire film starring Jim Carrey as a down and out loser whose long term girlfriend won't boink him. What's a guy to do? I know! Go home with some random hottie at a Hollywood bar and get it over with? Problem solved! Well problem solved until the random hottie turns out to be a lady vampire who must suck the blood of a virgin 3 times before midnight on Halloween.  This film is so bad it's good (our fav!) and it's full on 80s in all the best ways possible.  We'll talk about baby Jim Carrey, how much we love the dance off and costume style prom scene, and say three cheers to finally talking about the problems of vampire women!

Weekend at Bernie's II is a sequel that really didn't need to be made. Were we all really itching to know what happened to ... a dead body and two yuppy bros? Nah. However, aren't we lucky because just a short 4 years after the original, we get WAB II, a romp through the Virgin Islands with our buds Larry and Richard, a dancing corpse, and a sprinkle of the occult! This is a stereotypical good bad movie as it's total trash, but still enjoyable.  We'll talk about the evolution of the suitcase, how we miss Clearly Canadians and try to find out where to get some, and hey whatever happened to Gwen?!
