Episode 145: The Warriors

CAN YOU DIG IT?! It's Sweety's birthday! And as a special gift, Sweetie has finally allowed the viewing of one of Sweety's very favorite movies...The Warriors! Released in 1979, The Warriors is a cult classic, that the Sweetie's didn't grow up with but whatever it's Sweety's birthday and she can do what she wants. Join us as we discuss all the amazing gangs and their outfits, talk about which gang we would want to join and what our gang name would be AND bonus: we talk about everyone's...


Episode 144: Scream

Happy October guys! We're starting off this month with a dash of spooky .... with 1996's Scream! Starring Neve Campbell and our favorite typecast raper, Skeet Ulrich, Sweety has been obsessed with this meta horror film since she was a wee one. Sweetie on the other hand, has only seen it once, but still totally respects it and mainly is just happy that she can watch it without hiding behind a pillow now! We'll talk about how the first scene with Drew Barrymore in the blonde wig and white...


Episode 143: Jerry Maguire

We forgot how much we love 1996's Jerry Maguire! Starring Tom Cruise and Renee Zellweger in a love story that really should just be deleted from this film as we hate it, but gosh is this movie laugh out loud funny! We were way too young to see this film when it came out, but we eventually memorized the whole thing and decided that really Jerry Maguire is a platonic love story between Jerry and Rod, two guys who just needed a friendship to make them better men! This movie has a great...


Episode 142: Forrest Gump

For the Sweeties, Forrest Gump is the perfect film! It hits all the notes - we've got some tears, we got laughter, we got a somewhat scary Vietnam war sequence, we got SHRIMP and fried shrimp, coconut shrimp, a shrimp sandwich, shrimp salad, lemon shrimp, shrimp bisque ... and we got TOM HANKS and ROBERT ZEMECKIS, who could ask for anything more! Let's face it, Forrest Gump is a classic from our childhood that we'll never forget! Tune in as we chat about what Jenny is our favorite (disco...


Episode 141: Pretty in Pink

It's time for the Sweeties to tackle another John Hughes film. This week, Pretty in Pink or as we like to call it Pretty in a Really Ugly Pink Dress! Pretty in Pink written by John Hughes yet directed by some other fella stars 80s teen movie muse Molly Ringwald as Andie, a girl too cool for her lame high school that's run by yuppies who wear linen suits and drive BMWs. Her and her bff Duckie constantly make fun of the yuppies, until one such yuppie Blaine (yuppiest name EVER) asks her out...


Episode 140: Joe Versus the Volcano

The Sweeties are back from Ireland, we just bought a new car, and BONUS we decided to watch probably your 22nd favorite Tom Hanks movie .... Joe Versus The Volcano! From 1990 and starring Meg Ryan, times three, this is an oddball of a film that is hopelessly quirky yet funny and romantic in an off beat sort of way. Joe Banks is a hypochondriac with a shittay job until he finds out he has a brain cloud and only five months to live so he quits! Some rich old man cons him into jumping into a...


Episode 139: Ghost

The Sweeties can't get enough of ghosts! Or more specifically ghosts that look like Pat Swayze! We love 1990's Ghost - it's a triple threat. Part romance, part comedy, part thriller. As kids, this movie scared the bleep out of us, and honestly as 30 year old ladies, it's still pretty freaky! Whoopie Goldberg steals this movie (and won an Oscar to boot!) for her portrayal of psychic Oda Mae Brown. Pat and Demi have great chemistry! And Carl aka Tony Goldwyn is the the creepiest third...


Episode 138: Top Gun

We're going to the DANGER ZONE guys! This week we watched Top Gun and bottom line ... we are CONFUSED about this plot! However, we're not confused that this movie made Tom Cruise even more of a giant mega star and includes some really awesome soundtrack jams, shirtless sweaty men playing volleyball, and a ton of really exciting shots of fighter jets going really, really fast! We'll choose our own call signs (Duchess and Spitfire!), play a really fun game where we try to guess some military...


Episode 137: The Sixth Sense

Who's ready to get spooooky? 1999 brought us M. Night Shyamalan or more importantly The Six Sense and the world of movies with a twist was never the same again! Featuring Bruce Willis, Toni Colette and cute as a button Haley Joel Osment in a scary movie about a little boy who sees ghosts - and one of those ghosts - SPOILER ALERT - is Bruce Willis but GET THIS, he doesn't know he's dead! IS THAT CRAZY OR WHAT? Okay, so at the time this movie was the twistiest (is this a word?) thing since...


Episode 136: Pretty Woman

The hooker with the heart of gold movies NEVER GET OLD. Tale as old as time guys! Just because you're selling yourself on Hollywood Boulevard doesn't mean you're some cracked out 'ho! It probably just means you followed some busted ass boyfriend from Georgia and got sick of frying up burgers at McDonald's so you decided to turn tricks instead! Yes, this is the plot of Pretty Woman, the Gary Marshall classic from 1990 that catapulted Julia Roberts into a gigantic mega star, and you know what?...


Episode 135: Coyote Ugly

In the early aughts, it was super popular to want to be a faux slut and then in the year 2000 along came the movie Coyote Ugly and a whole generation of women dreamed of becoming songwriters. JUST KIDDING. They dreamed of wearing slutty crop tops and dancing on a bar. DUH. Coyote tells the story of Violet Sanford, an inspiring songwriter with bad stage fright who moves from her small NJ town to live on the mean streets of NYC. After a burglary leaves her without any cash and her song writing...


Episode 134: Stand By Me

Who wants to see a dead body? We do! Stand by Me, a Rob Reiner classic from 1986 and based on the the novella by Stephen King called "The Body", follows four 12 year old boys during the summer of 1959 as they go on a hunt for the body of missing classmate Ray Brower but more importantly go searching for the meaning of male friendship! And they find it! But they also find leeches! Spoooooky. Sweety couldn't remember seeing this film, but Sweetie has fond memories of watching a movie that she...


Episode 133: 10 Things I Hate About You

Happy Tuesday! We thought it was about time to tackle a 90's teenage rom com because let's be honest, they have made us ALL who we are today and started with one of our favorites, 10 Things I Hate About You! From 1999 and starring Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger, this movie is an adaptation of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, a comedy that has clear problems in a world where we're starting to celebrate the "nasty" woman, but 10 Things does some good work in making it less about clipping an...


Episode 132: Arachnophobia

Continuing on with our trend of covering movies that scare the bleep out of Sweety, tonight we watched Arachnophobia and realized that animals run amok movies may be our favorite genre. Starring Jeff Daniels, some other people plus John Goodman, Arachnophobia tells the story of a spider from Venezuela who needs to spread his wings and hops aboard a corpse bound for a small town in Northern California. There, he meets Doctor Jeff Daniels (also new to the area) and decides he wants to take...


Bonus Episode: Double Dare!

Bonus ep time! Who can forget the classic Nickelodeon game show (and it's longest running) Double Dare or it's other iteration Family Double Dare? Part trivia, part whacky physical challenges, Double Dare was like crack to kids because it involved literal hot messes in the forms of pies, slime, and all this other crud PLUS an obstacle course where you picked noses or rifled through oversized pancakes or ran around a giant hamster wheel! We watched a couple episodes, and it did not...


Episode 131: Jaws

Happy summer guys! Since it's summer, we thought it would be apropos to do the first summer blockbuster of all time----1975's JAWS! Directed by our pal (and yours!) Stevie Spiels, Jaws tells the story of a killer fish run amok in the small seaside community of Amity Island. Chief Brody, city-slicker/land lubber threatens to close the beaches after a horrendous shark attack, but mayor Larry Vaughn wants to keep them open to reap all that tourist money. Unfortunately a lot of people die and...


Episode 130: Independence Day

Happy Fourth of July from The Sweeties! With the holiday upon us, we decided it was the exact right time to trot out Independence Day, the pinnacle 90s film about aliens (in our not so humble opinion) AND the coolness that was Will Smith before he started doing "real" movies. So there are parts of this movie that are very cheesy and bad buttttt our general consensus was it's still pretty cool and stokes our patriotism fire even if our country is a hell of a hot mess right now. Though it...


Episode 129: Homeward Bound

SWEETIE'S BACK FROM VACATION!! And we're kicking off the true start of summer with the best animal movie there is---Homeward Bound! Released in 1993, Homeward Bound tells the story of Shadow, Chance and Sassy and let's face it, massive family miscommunication! Their family moves to San Francisco temporarily and they get left on a farm, yet mistake it for abandonment. But they say fuck it, you ain't getting rid of us and decide to make an arduous journey across Northern California to find...


Episode 128: National Lampoon's European Vacation

In honor of Sweetie's real life European vacation, we watched National Lampoon's European Vacation, which is actually our first Chevy Chase film of the bunch! From 1985 and directed by one of our favs Amy Heckerling, European Vacation takes the notorious Griswold's on a Euro adventure after they accidentally win the grand prize on The Pig and the Poke game show! That grand prize turns out to be an all expenses paid trip to London, Paris, Germany and Rome! This movie is whacky with a capital...


Episode 127: Speed

Welp Sweetie is officially on vacation but we're still bringing you alllll the hits including 1994's bomb on the bus masterpiece, Speed! Starring a hotter than average Keanu Reeves and the always spit fire Sandra Bullock, Speed scared the bleep out of us as little kids and made us terrified of elevators for the rest of our lives! Now that we're adults and slaves to the public transportation of Boston, we relate even more to this movie! I mean if I have to go on one more MBTA bus that has a...
