its one of the most perfect movies ever made... something for everyone.

and quite frankly folks?. if I may be so crass?

damn thing is a friggen leg spreader

gents, if you can get into a position to invite a lady friend over for dinner a movie, and if you are even mildly confident in punching out a simple pasta dish, and a decent batch of hand pop popcorn and have the forsight to put this movie on? yer in like the Flynn that wesley is loosly based off oof

if you know what I'm talking about...

and I think you do.

Ladies? there is no man in the world that can turn down the princess bride. it has everything.. action, adventure, true love, andre the giant.
if they piss on the idea? then they must be sent on their way, there is no redemption for it.

and pissing on the idea is not someone who's never seen it and doesn't want to.. and that mythical creature doesn't exist.. I'm talking about someone who has seen it and goes.. "meh" at the mention.

these people must be dismissed from anyone's life. for they are hollow inside, and only evil can fill such a void.

We've always said to zobear jr. that any s.o. she entertains must love and be able to quote that movie.

Also I think a great interview question is: "Can you name one of the classic blunders?"

I would definitely work with anyone who can answer that question correctly.

/will have to watch TPB this weekend!

The_Sponge: "Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line!"


Seriously....it should be the 11th Commandment.


Maybe the 12th. "Never get involved in a land war in Asia" is the 11th.

The Princess Bride is one of the few movies better than the book. Not to say that the book wasn't good, but the movie took everything great about the book and made it better.

The sword fight between Inigo and The Man in Black is still, in my opinion, the best sword fight I've ever seen in a movie and has yet to be topped.

/WRONG. Your ears you keep and I'll tell you why. So that every shriek of every child at seeing your hideousness will be yours to cherish. Every babe that weeps at your approach, every woman who cries out, "Dear God! What is that thing," will echo in your perfect ears. That is what to the pain means. It means I leave you in anguish, wallowing in freakish misery forever.

I remember seeing him on "Psych," and thinking what a damn shame, but based on the pictures from the article, I think he's trying to get back in some kind of decent shape.


Give the guy a break. They strapped him to The Machine and turned it up to 11. He should be 400 lbs. and look 80 by now.

When my kids were younger I worked at home, so I got to see them leave for school. As they walked out the door I'd say 'Have fun storming the castle!' and they'd yell back, 'Think it'll work?' and I'd answer 'It'd take a miracle'. Good times.

wraithmare: Just a perfect movie all around. One of my top 5.


That's because its got something for everyone. Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...

Gordon Bennett: scottydoesntknow: Needless to day we were fighting imaginary R.O.U.S.s at recess and quoting Inigo by the afternoon. Everyone loved it. And everyone I've known since then has also loved it or decided to watch it then fall in love with it.

I'm not in love with it at all, but I do blave it.


You bluff it? You're the sort of guy who cheats at cards and ends up mostly dead, aren't you?

CSB Time.

For our fist Valentines Day together, the GF invited me over to her place for dinner/movie/couch cuddles. She said that Valentines Day is all about the women, so we will watch her favorite romantic film. I wasn't thrilled with that part (I thought she had better taste than that), but... couch cuddles... so... I showed up, she already had the movie in the VCR, and I settled in. She hit Play, and it was Princess Bride.

We've been married six years. And every Valentines Day we put the kids to bed and cuddle up on the couch for Princess Bride.

Nezu Chiza: I remember seeing this towards the end of 8th grade science class. We watched it over the course of two days and the class fell in LOVE with it. It's still in my top ten movies and will probably be so forever. It just hit the perfect note on everything it did. Perfect casting, perfect acting, using the proper scenes and changing the few things it did to tighten it up...and GODS, the quotability factor. I doubt there's a person anywhere who hasn't said "As you wish" or "Have fun storming the castle!" at least once in their lives.


Or, "He's only mostly dead".

Fred's awol from another PB reunion. And the story lists the actors, including the dead ones, but he isn't even mentioned.

What's his beef? Was he molested on the set or something?

My favorite Andre the giant dialogue:
Vizzini: Finish him. Finish him, your way.
Fezzik: Oh good, my way. Thank you Vizzini... what's my way?
Vizzini: Pick up one of those rocks, get behind a boulder, in a few minutes the man in black will come running around the bend, the minute his head is in view, hit it with the rock.
Fezzik: My way's not very sportsman-like.

I would say the worst thing about the movie is the name (I know I know, it's named after the book). When I first heard someone wanted to watch 'The Princess Bride' in elementary school, all the boys fought against it. Finally we caved when the teacher said our pre-concieved opinions on this movie didn't matter and we were watching it anyway.

Needless to day we were fighting imaginary R.O.U.S.s at recess and quoting Inigo by the afternoon. Everyone loved it. And everyone I've known since then has also loved it or decided to watch it then fall in love with it.

Indeed.. Whenever any girl hears that it's one of my favorite movies I always get bonus points. It's funny though that I don't necessarily see it as a girly flick.. Plus RIP Andre!
