About this podcast
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

Our week long celebration of our 100th episode continues and we're going way, way back to when Hayley Mills ruled the day! The Parent Trap from 1961 gave a lot of kids of divorced parents false hope as two separated at near birth twin sisters Susan and Sharon meet at a summer camp and concoct a plan to get their parents Mitch and Maggie back together despite being a horrible couple who fights a lot and probably have nothing in common! We LOVED Hayley Mills as a kid and enjoyed chatting about all the twins in our lives, whether we would want to live with mom in Boston (HELL YES) or with dad in California (hmm after this winter maybe) and Sweety spills the unfortunate beans that she kind of maybe likes the remake with Lindsay Lohan better! Blasphemy says Sweetie! We dedicate this episode to our first fan Jen as she just had twin babies of her own in December! Thank you Jen for being our first fan that made us realize that more people were listening to us other than our mother!      Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen. Logo designed by Frankie Donlon.

YOU GUYS IT'S OUR 100th EPISODE!!!! We're celebrating by watching The Return of the Jedi and basking in the cuteness of Ewoks. We don't care if you hate them, we just want to know where we can get one. Join us as we talk about why this was our favorite Star Wars movie as kids, why Obi "Don't Call me Ben" Kenobi is a shifty liar, and review the abomination that is Hayden Christensen and why he wasn't content with just ruining 3 Star Wars movies. Fun fact: Apparently when you turn into a weird egg-head Evil Sith lord, you can decide if you want to look like your young boyish self or an old person.

Toe pick! We love figure skating more than just about everything else in the world, so it was clear to us that in order to celebrate the release of I, Tonya---we had to watch the Cutting Edge! Warning: This podcast contains a lot of chatter, tears, and good memories as we dive into the golden age of figure skating...so make sure your laces are tight.    Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen.

In 1995, a little movie came out that was a cautionary tale about the dangers of the internet, identity theft, and why you should never ever drink a Gibson martini with a handsome British man in Cancun who claims his favorite movie is Breakfast at Tiffany's. The Net, despite its horrible title (yo, no one calls it the "net" anymore, if we ever did) is a GREAT film.  We used to watch this on good old HBO and instantly wanted to be coders and couldn't wait for the days when we could order our pizza online!  Join us as we discuss how much we miss floppy disks, how Sandra Bullock's Angela Bennett is one bad ass bitch slash smart cookie, and how Dennis Miller was a rando choice for a self centered ex boyfriend character with an unfortunate penicillin allergy.  Happy New Year!     Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen.

Happy Christmas from the Sweeties! We're off to Ireland, but we'll leave you with an episode dedicated to one of our favorite family Christmas movies---Scrooged! Released in 1988, Scrooged retells A Christmas Carol with a heavy amount of Bill Murray. We loved this as kids even though it kind of scared the crap out of us. Join us for a rousing discussion about: why Carol Kane's slap happy attitude made Sweetie upset, how we might be rethinking that whole cremation thing and why "Lumpy" is not our favorite term of endearment.   Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen.

Don't lie to us. We know The Exorcist is your favorite closet Xmas movie and that's why we thought it would be the perfect break in a slew of holiday themed films this month. Anti Christ for Christmas? What what. The Sweeties got into this movie because Sweetie watched it for her birthday sleepover from the ages of 12 to 18, while lil Sweety hid behind the couch. Known as one of the scariest movies on the planet, The Exorcist is all about demonic possession, pea soup vomit, really unfortunate uses of the c-word andddddd some pretty great 70s outfits.  We get real deep with this one so hold onto your crucifixes and holy water and let the power of Christ compel you!!  Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen.

Since we're not the biggest Christmas lovers, we decided to let the fans decide which Christmas movie we should cover. We listened to your recommendations, put them all in a cute stocking and picked one out to watch. The winner was....Santa Claus the Movie! Released in 1985 and starring Dudley Moore and John Lithgow, Santa Claus the movie is part Santa origin story part Christmas epic saga, and believe it or not we had never seen it (or remembered it). Join us as we experience a full dose of Christmas, and hear what troubles us the most about this flick (hint it rhymes with Lon Mithgow's beef). Thanks to @Megs_C  @mitzy247 and @CAlice13 for the recommendation! This episode is brought to you by Sudio.

Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack! Guys, we watched The Mighty Ducks and we're here to say, it holds up! From 1992, who can forget when Gordon Bombay got a pesky DUI and as punishment was forced to coach a pee-wee hockey team and look deep inside himself on why he was a miserable bastard.  This movie falls into the genre of a rag-tag under team beating all odds to win it all! Tune in as we discuss the lackluster acting skills of Emilio Estevez, why we're still in love with Joshua Jackson after all these years, and why did people wear all sort of inappropriate hats in the 1990s.  Bonus Sweetie knocks down the mic. Twice. Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen. Logo designed by Frankie Donlon.  Follow us on Twitter @TheSweetieClub and on Instagram @LargeMargeSentUs

We're capping off our month of random selections with 1992's The Bodyguard! A movie where the soundtrack might just be better than the film (sorry) but we love it anyways I guess. Starring Whitney Houston in her very first movie role as Rachel Marron (worst pop star name I ever heard) and hot in the 90s, Kevin Costner. Join us as we talk about hard hitting topics like: Lollipops---not professional. Orange Juice---a terrible beverage and most importantly how badly can we  butcher a Whitney Houston song? Listen to find out!  **Warning turn down your volume early on when Sweetie goes to town in the Sweetie Synopsis intro**   Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen. Logo designed by Frankie Donlon.

 The house is going to be great! Famous last words in this hilarious comedy from 1986, which was a very good year indeed because our sweet Sweety was born! We loved this film as kids, and heck we don't even know why because what did we know about home repair? But now that we're seasoned HGTV watchers, we totally get the plight of Walter and Ana, as they deal with the never ending nightmare of a reno project but also how this tests their fragile relationship that was unknowingly filled with massive trust issues! Wow, this is heavy.  Listen in as we chat about all the secondary characters we loved, sing multiple rounds of the "The Name Game" Song (Anna Banna Bobanna etc), and wax on endlessly about the comedic brilliance of the one, the only Tom Hanks!  This episode is brought to you by Sudio.
