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

    223. Salute Your Shorts

    223. Salute Your Shorts

    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!

    222. The Cable Guy

    222. The Cable Guy

    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!

    221. The Lion King

    221. The Lion King

    In honor of our dearly departed Dad's birthday, we did the final movie in the 90s Disney classic canon, The Lion King! From 1994, The Lion King boasts a star studded cast of voices, gorgeous animation and songs by Elton John! We connect with this film and Simba as we're all in the Dead Dad's Club, and appreciate Disney's attempt at trying to add a more worldly approach to their animated movies though there was definitely work to be done. This was never our favorite Disney film growing up, but WOW this movie is terrific! We'll talk about our early memories of the film, sing all the songs, and crap all over the live action version that came out a couple years ago.  It's the circle of life, guys!

    220: The Baby-Sitters Club Sweetie Special #1

    220: The Baby-Sitters Club Sweetie Special #1

    With The Babysitter's Club coming back for a reboot this year, we decided we would do our own version of the iconic white cover Super Specials - so it's Sweetie Special #1 this week as we dissect three different versions of The Babysitter's Club franchise.  There was the TV version that aired for one season in 1990, the movie version from 1995, and then the updated version released by Netflix this year. Each have their own charm, but we'll talk about who we most identified with in "the club", how the movie version tried really hard but we prefer the serialized versions of the TV shows, and how we can trace the evolution of our childhood by what juice boxes we were allowed to drink.

    219. Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

    219. Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

    Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me is another look at sequel versus original.  When we were young, we were not as well acquainted with the original Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery but grew to love it.  We did see the sequel in theaters and thought it was hilarious at the time, but now it feels like just a re-tread of the original with more poop jokes and offensive fat jokes.  It's sad to see when a movie doesn't age well, and this one sure aged poorly. We'll talk about it plus all the fun late 90s pop culture references that we were very much there for (Hot Pockets! Will Smith! Cloning!), how we rate Heather Graham as an actress, and Sweetie brings back her new favorite segment, That's So International, where we talk about the title of this movie across the globe.

    218. The Lost Boys

    218. The Lost Boys

    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.
