The Princess Bride (1987)

The Princess Bride
Special Edition





Trailer

What is there not to love about The Princess Bride? It's a great movie with great characters with a great story and legendary quotes that have stood the test of time. Can you think of any other movie with as many memorable quotes like this one has? "As you wish", "Inconceivable", "Have fun stormin' the Castle" and the best if the bunch, "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die". All the actors in this were well cast. I still remember seeing this in the theater and the reason why I went in the first place was because I was a HUGE fan of the WWF and I wanted to see what Andre The Giant would bring to his role. It was no surprise for me at all when he basically stole the movie. He just OWNED it then....and still does to this day. RIP big guy!!

I highly recommend this as a Buy. I think everyone should have their own copy. It's a fantastic family film, although I wouldn't show kids under the age of 8 due to the R.O.U.S.'s which is Rodents of Unusual Size which could in fact scar a kid at such a young age. Anyway, definitely pick this one up.

The problem now is that so many fairy tales want to BE "The Princess Bride" (see "Tangled") and they never reach the same lofty heights.

A couple years ago I visited my dad and my step-brother John had this flick on his DVR so I turned it on.  My dad had never seen it, so we watched the whole thing and I kept checking my dad's expression and, outside of recognizing all the British actors like Mel Smith and so on, didn't really react.  Then the movie ended and he turned to me and just said "that was great."  His wife came in a minute or so later and he made us watch it again, and this dude never watches ANYTHING twice.  He really did love it.

Okay, a couple years ago The Rock was in this movie called "The Tooth Fairy" and the ONE watchable scene (outside of Seth McFarlane's odd cameo as a black market fairy dust pusher) as Billy Crystal, and give him credit, they clearly wanted him to be Miracle Max but he did it differently, he was sort of the "Q" character and he spoke a mile a minute and it's just a chucklefest for a few minutes.  At least for me.

Too bad Andre The Giant isn't around to enjoy this.

I feel like he's been rocking that beard since "Dead Like Me" ended.  Also, I really need to revisit "Dead Like Me."
