Sneakers is the most underrated movie that came out of 1992 and we'll fight anyone to the death who thinks otherwise! People, this movie is the shit and not just because it has one of the best ensemble casts ever created - Robert Redford, Sidney Poitier, Dan Ackroyd, Ben Kingsley, River Phoenix, David Strathairn, James Earl Jones, NED RYERSON (Steven Tobolowsky) - but because it's about cool spying, hacking stuff, has an amazing score, and affirms the fact that you don't need sight to be a bad ass bitch. So if you haven't seen this movie yet - RENT IT - and then listen to our awesome podcast where we mostly just get boners talking about how great this movie is, why Ben Kingsley has 10 different accents, how Robert Redford is still a hottie, and why computer hacker movies are a lost art.  TOO MANY SECRETS.

This week we decided to leave the movie watching decision up to the fans and you picked: Back to the Future Part II! Released in 1989, the 2nd installment in Marty McFly's time traveling saga, takes us to the year 2015 and delivers the kind of futuristic excitement that only a movie made in the 80s could bring. And although we never got flying cars, auto-sizing clothes, power laces, OR a real hoverboard--we still love the sheer awesomeness that is an 80s version of 2015. Join us as we talk about the movie phenomena of kids looking exactly like their parents, how we were super spooked by the chaos strewn streets of the alternate 1985, and hear us exclaim about how we're basically stuck in an alternate version of 2017 right this very moment only instead of Biff running the world, we got Drumpf. So  put your lithium setting on high, we're going....forward in time! (And then back again) (and then back again again) Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen. Logo designed by Frankie Donlon.

IT'S OUR ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!! We celebrated by drinking wine through straws, buying gross as fuck hair extensions from the dollar store AND watching Mrs. Doubtfire! NOT THE WORST DAY IN THE WORLD! Probably one of Robin William's most beloved films, released in 1993, Mrs. Doubtfire taught us all about divorce and what not to do in the event you aren't awarded joint custody of your children. Join us as we talk about the hijjinks that were involved when we tried to see this film in theaters in 1993, how this film could never be made today because it's a bit transphobic, how Stewart, while aggressively hot needs to fucking cool with his triple twist dive (that may or may not be a skating term), and we'll do a much deserved ode to Robin Williams, RIP. Thank you amazing fans for bringing us to one year!   Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen. Logo designed by Frankie Donlon. Follow us on Twitter @TheSweetieClub and on Instagram @LargeMargeSentUs

It's time for another musical! Join us as we re-watch Bedknobs and Broomsticks and realize that it probably should have been called 'Mary Poppins But Not As Good". Released in 1971, B-knobs and B-sticks, stars the always adorable Angela Lansbury and Mr. Banks himself David Tomlinson and combines cartoons with live action for another thrilling magical adventure. We'll talk about many fascinating things including: why jerk face Charlie is essentially one of those pricky Gallagher brothers from Oasis, which songs and scenes are our favorite, and the thrilling tale of how a Jamaican steel drum band ends up on Portobello Road.  Grab your broomstick and mangy old sick cat and come get witchy with us!

Today we return to the magical land of Indiana Jones, as we dive into our least favorite of the Indy trilogy (no, we do not count Kingdom of the Crystal Skullz) The Temple of Doom! Released in 1984, is actually a prequel to Raiders, and although we kind of hate it, we do admit that it is ACTION PACKED. It's filled with nail biting 'how will they get out of this scenarios', elaborate set pieces, and the charming comic relief of Short Round. We'll talk about why we think it's commonly know as the least favorite of the Indy films, how Willie Scott single-handedly set the women's movement back by about 100 years, and Sweety tells a moving story about accidentally watching Lion without subtitles. So join us, and our bud Mola Ram as we venture into the Temple err....... cave-like structure thing of Doom!  Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen. Logo designed by Frankie Donlon.

In 1990, we were just teeny tykes. We liked our movies and our GRABOIDS. Tremors is the first horror movie to cross the Sweeties threshold, but one we've come to always enjoy both for its quality bromance between Val and Earl, the scary but not too scary sand snake things, and the cool lady scientist who wows them all! Join us as we deep dive into our thoughts on Kevin Bacon (with a special round of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon), how this movie compares to another man-eating franchise (Jaws!), how maybe there IS such a thing as too many sequels, and everyone's BURNING question (GET IT) about what is that zinc oxide stuff and why you don't rub it in like sunscreen.

Guys, we've reached a true turning point for the Large Marge Sent Us podcast. We're covering our first sequel and we couldn't be happier about it! Released in 1989, Ghostbusters 2 proton packed itself into the Sweetie mindset quite early, and while far inferior to Ghostbusters, it still has us rolling in the aisles and loving all the cool ghosty stuff that enchanted us from the first film.  Set 5 years after the first film, we're back to NYC, where the Ghostbuster's are down on their luck in a world without a whole lotta ghosts until Vigo the Carpathian comes alive and wants to become a man baby by stealing the soul of poor Dana Barrett's baby. Join us as we talk about what makes a good sequel, how we really sort of hate Dana Barrett, why old fashioned baby carriages are nobody's friend, and if the fan theory that Oscar is the love child of Vinze Clortho and Zuul's, holds water. Plus amazing renditions of Bobby Brown's jam from the soundtrack and Jackie Wilson's iconic, "Higher and Higher"!  Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen. Logo designed by Frankie Donlon.

The fans have spoken (hey Markus!) and they requested we do a Mel Brooks film! Coincidentally we've been wanting to watch Spaceballs, a movie that the Sweeties saw perhaps before even the main movie that it spoofs, Stars Wars! What came first, the parody or the parodied? We have zero critiques for this movie and basically just had a blast reliving all of our favorite scenes and lines, waxing on endlessly for our love of Rick Moranis, playing another round of Bill Pullman or Bill Paxton (RIP) and gushing over the brilliance that is Mel Brooks in all his glory.  Come for the Dark Helmet impressions and leave with some great trivia tidbits about how the movie got its name (balls!) and how invested George Lucas was in the whole project.  May the Schwartz be with you!

BEST DAY EVER WE DID ANOTHER MUSICAL! The Sweetie's love to sing and what better way to show off our less than professional singing abilities than a trip down T-bird and Pink Lady Lane by doing Grease! We loved this movie hard as little kids (wayyyy before the Grease Mega Mix came out - thank you) though realized today that we didn't totally know all of the lyrics to the songs! Whoops.  Join us as we tackle all the important topics such as: the somewhat horrible message that you need to dress like a slut for your bf to truly love you, who is our favorite T-Bird and Pink Lady, why Rizzo is so damn cool but has got some issues, all of the many Sweetie confusion about all the many sexual innuendos that flew way over our tiny heads, and why whoever decided the drivel that is the song "Sandy" needed to be added to the soundtrack should be fired.  Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen.

Innerspace was released 30 years ago on July 1st of 1987. So to celebrate, we've joined forces with the Damage Control Podcast to bring you a rousing new episode!! Join the Sweeties as we record our first episode whilst in different locations! We'll recall how Innerspace first introduced Sweetie to the harmonious tones of Sam Cooke by getting her confused about 'the chicken slacks'. We'll stroll down memory lane and reminisce how we were scarred for life after seeing Mr. Igoe get digested, and then talk about scientific things that we have no idea about. When you're finished listening to our episode, head on over to the Damage Control Podcast and see how what those fellas think!  Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen. Logo designed by Frankie Donlon.

Move over Field of Dreams.....A League of Their Own is the best damn baseball movie EVER. We'll bet all of our Rockford Peach baseball cards! ALoTO, from 1992 and directed by Penny Marshall chronicles the history of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, a time from 1943 to 1954 when WOMEN played BASEBALL professionally because all of the men were at war! This movie will make you laugh, cry, hug your sister, and reminds you how awesome Tom Hanks and Gena Davis are.  We've seen this movie 1000 times with (or without sound) and love it so. Come on and listen to us do fine renditions of "We're the members of the All American League..." and "This Used to be Be My Playground", discuss if Dottie dropped the ball on purpose or just had a really bad day, which Rockford Peach we like the most, and how the big band soundtrack and women kicking baseball butt in several montages gives us the internal goosebumps just like when we saw Wonder Woman! PS We kept calling the pitcher Ellen Sue, Sue Ellen because we're both still on a high from our Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter is Dead episode.   Theme song sung by Deidre Cullen.

If you didn't think Will Smith was the coolest thing EVER in 1997, then you can just leave right now. Men in Black represents a key point of the Will Smith action comedy oeuvre, right next to Independence Day and Wild Wild West.  We saw this movie multiple times in the movie theaters when it came out and worshipped Will Smith in all his jumpsuited glory (hey he was even Sweety's fake boyfriend for a couple years!). Bear with us as our synopsis goes off the rails a little bit, but stay for the in depth discussion of the creepiness of Vincent D'Onofrio, our forever love for Tommy Lee Jones, the MIB tag game Sweety came up with for her gym class, and Sweetie's many warblings of the Men in Black theme song.    Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen.

Alright Silver Snakes, it's time to grab those jungle vines, swing across a big pool of dry ice induced fog, and earn the right to scamper through LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE. Airing from 1992 to 1994 on Nickelodeon, Legends of the Hidden Temple was the show for you if you could master a cargo net, had good listening comprehension skills when a giant rock sculpture told you a boring ass story about a lost Mesopotamian artifact AND if you didn't pee your pants when a temple guard jumps out of a dark corner! Join us as we discuss how drunk the host must have been to film 200 of these bad boys over 2 years, how shitty the prizes were (Hush Puppies, AGAIN!?), and how most of the boy contestants seemed jerky and probably have ghosted 25 girls on Tinder by now.  Don't forget your life pendants ....it's time to relive Legends!  Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen.

After two botched attempts back in November, we're FINALLY re-recording our Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's episode. Rejoice!!! This flick was a family classic that we'd watch every time it came on TV and although it gave us false hopes about how our adulthood would turn out, it still made us appreciate so much. It taught us important life lessons like, how to do QED reports (make your nice friend do them!), how to send a fax (wait for that same nice friend and then copy her!) all while jamming to some amazing soundtrack work. Join us as we discuss these lessons plus other important things like Brian's 'classic wedge cap' and how delightful Katrina is at whipping up excitement in her boots. We're right on top of that Rose!

Sexual Chocolate. SEXUAL CHOCOLATE! Tonight we watched one of Sweetie's favorite comedies---Coming to America! Starring Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall in about 5 roles apiece. Join us as we discuss the finer points of 80s fashion (Scrunchies AKA 'Bouffies (sp?)), how awesome McDonald's used to be and hear us do our very best Randy Watson impressions. We'll also relive Sweetie's worst job of all time. Trust us, you don't want to miss that.    Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen. Logo designed by Frankie Donlon.

They're here! The Sweeties are back and watching the first scary movie that ever truly spoke to us as children. Poltergeist scarred us for life when it brought us traumatic scenes like men peeling their faces off, scary AF clown dolls coming alive to strangle us, and grotesque skeletons swimming in a muddy pool. As adults we've come to love the movie and all of its Craig T. Nelson and Jo-Beth Williams glory and we'll never forget it. So join us as we: discuss our various theories on what exactly the 'other side' looks like, share our favorite lines we like to use in everyday situations AND lament Stephen's mansplaining and poor decision making. Do NOT go into the light you guys. Unless the light is listening to this episode in which case...RUN TO THE LIGHT BABY! Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen. Logo designed by Frankie Donlon.

Disney once again thwarted our podcasting plans and wouldn't let us easily rent and stream Sleeping Beauty, so we watched Groundhog Day instead! As far plan B's go, Groundhog Day is the bees knees. Starring the beloved Bill Murray, Groundhog Day taught us many valuable lessons including but not limited to: How to easily rob an armored bank truck, Sweet Vermouth is gross, and that you should never get in the shower and then turn on the faucet. We'll discuss how the Phil Connors Suicide reel terrified us as kids, how Phil Connors is pretty much just a regular Joe in today's sarcastic and selfish world of 2016, AND we'll get into some pretty crazy conspiracy theories revolving around Ned Ryerson and whether or not he was a con man OR perhaps stuck in his own time loop!  Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen.

This week the Sweeties are covering part gross out comedy/part study on psychological well-being---Drop Dead Fred! This movie intrigued us as kids but confuses us as adults. Who is it for? WAS Fred in her imagination and conjured up due to her loneliness and abandonment issues? OR was he a real concept but just invisible to everyone but Lizzie. Who knows! Although we are eternally confused, we can still find things to get excited about.  So join us as we discuss the mysterious disappearance of Bridget Fonda, how stenography keyboards work and hear a full history of Sweety's imaginary friends (the written record of which is now lost because Sweetie threw out the diary in a massive cleaning frenzy!)  Follow us on Twitter @TheSweetieClub and on Instagram @LargeMargeSentUs Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen.

It's Emily's/Sweetie's birthday and we're celebrating by watching her favorite movie of ALL time....Mary Poppins! Join us as we sing every song in the movie, discuss the eternal confusion of Mary and Bert's relationship status, and lament about how many freaking versions of the Bank song there needs to be. We'll also get sad about Julie Andrew's damaged singing voice, and discuss some possible sexual innuendos involving a cane and an umbrella. Get your singing voices ready IT'S STEP IN TIME!  Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen. Logo designed by Frankie Donlon. Follow us on Twitter @TheSweetieClub and on Instagram @LargeMargeSentUs

In the 90s, a time of economic prosperity and a budget surplus, was there a better game show out there than Supermarket Sweep? Couples with a better than average knowledge of how much a box of Bisquick costs would vie for the chance to race around a fake grocery store and pile their carts high with Pampers, hams, and expensive hair dye all in the hopes that their cart would be the most expensive so that they could go for the big $5,000 grand prize.  Maybe it was our secret dream of being grocery check out girls but the Sweeties loved this show! We watched a few episodes the other day and boy it has not lost its luster! Tune in as we chat about the peppier than usual host, what we determined  to be the best strategies, and how we have long term goals to create epic Supermarket Sweep Halloween costumes.  Somehow we also launched into a sing-along of the Gummi Bears theme song. YOU ARE WELCOME.  Theme song performed by Deidre Cullen. Logo designed by Frankie Donlon. Follow us on Twitter @TheSweetieClub and on Instagram @LargeMargeSentUs
