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!

Welp, we finally did it! We watched Back to the Future Part III, third installment in a trilogy that we are OBSESSED with but never got around to seeing the movie that closed it all out! From 1990, Back to the Future III picks up where the second movie leaves off, Marty McFly is stuck in 1955 again and Doc Brown is stuck in 1855. Time travel hijinks ensues and you have Marty chasing Doc back to the Wild Wild West as they try to figure out how to get back to 1985, while avoiding the descendent of arch enemy Biff! While we're no fan of Westerns, this movie is a fun watch as familiar scenes get played out but with a Western twist. There's lassos, lots of shoot outs, and everyone for some reason is very dirty or tan.  We'll talk about how Sweetie suddenly thinks Doc Brown is hot (!), how this movie lacks a bit of oomph in the script department, and why they made Marty McFly's great, great, grandfather Seamus McFly, look like Eric Stolz? Coincidence, we think not! BONUS we reveal the winners of our anniversary contest!

Happy Anniversary to The Sweeties! This week marks our fourth anniversary here at Large Marge Sent Us, and while we had planned on doing Cocoon, the streaming gods were against us AGAIN. We had to order the DVD from Japan, so it will be here in a tick, but until then to celebrate our four year (also known as the fruit/flowers anniversary!) we did a mini ep on Salute Your Shorts! Broadcast on Nickelodeon from 1991 to '93, Salute Your Shorts was short lived (haha) but packed a big punch as far as nostalgia goes! Budnick! Donkey Lips! Sponge! It's the classic camp spoof that we were addicted to as kids.  We watched a couple of eps and it's still pretty charming today and Zeke the Plumber is still wicked scary! Oh come celebrate this happy milestone and listen to Large Marge Sent Us, the grubby little four year old that she is, today!

From 1996, The Cable Guy, marked Jim Carrey's departure from straight up silly, elastic faced comedy! In this Ben Stiller directed/Judd Apatow partially written comedy, things got a little darker and take it or leave it, he still delivers in this take on the stalker flick.  The Sweeties love a good stalker flick and appreciate the film's commentary on the state of TV in the mid 90s, something that has somewhat departed today with the launch of "cutting the cord" culture and all those dang streaming services! We'll talk about hair plugs (random!), how we miss Janeane Garofolo, and our memories of 90s TV culture. I want my MTV!
