FirstNationalBastard: It worked for WCW.
stpauler: PLEASE don't. I f*cking hate that movie so much.
Tax Boy: Here's the plot:How about the cast sits down on the sofa to watch The Princess Pride on the TV instead of making a horrible sequel?
Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: Fred Savage recites the book to his illegitimate bastard son until he pushes the kid out of the car on the I-5.Savage laughs "As you wiwwiiiiiisssssshhhhhh" as drives away from his bouncing, rolling kid.Wesley and Buttercup have become the antithesis of Miracle Max and his wife--sort of like drunken Liz Taylor and Richard Burton.Humperdink finally comes out of the closet, marries Fezzik, changes his name to Prince Humphisdink but dies a tragic death involving a ROUS and duck tape.
Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: Wesley and Buttercup have become the antithesis of Miracle Max and his wife--sort of like drunken Liz Taylor and Richard Burton.
Mr. Cat Poop: Westley and Buttercup's daughter falls in love with King Humperdink's son, the new prince who isn't an asshole like his pop. They run off to elope, but they get kidnapped on the way by ruffian's. The king and Westley have to work together and save their kids. They of course enlist the aid of the Dread Pirate Roberts.
Onkel Buck: I wish they would remake "The Outsiders" with Beiber as Pony Boy and Stiffler as Dallas*Ducks, flips you all off and runs away laughing manically*
scarmig: Fezzik's son, call it "The Prince's Bride", and of course it is about how Lil Fezzik hunts down the cult that kills his father, falls in love, and becomes king by his own hand.Also, shoot me now.
Lord Zardoz: There are a few hooks that could allow for a sequel.Prince Humperdinck was left alive at the end of the movie, and Inigo Montoya presumably becomes the next Dread Pirate Roberts.However, this is not exactly a film that requires a sequel.END COMMUNICATION
Sybarite: Am I the only one who felt really bad for whichever horse Fezzik was going to ride out of there?[www.crazyus.com image 450x256]
catmandu: Sybarite: Am I the only one who felt really bad for whichever horse Fezzik was going to ride out of there?[www.crazyus.com image 450x256]According to Reiner, the biggest horse wasn't strong enough so they rigged Andre' with a harness so he was hanging from the ceiling and just barely touching the horse. He also went on to say that they were filming those scenes on the third Thursday of November when the beaujolais nouveau comes out. Andre', as the good Frenchman that he is, ordered several cases and proceeded to get thoroughly drunk. Reiner walked into the studio and there was Andre' hanging from the ceiling with a glass in one hand, a bottle in the other, drunk as a skunk, and yelling out "hey, boss!".
MaxxLarge: stpauler: PLEASE don't. I f*cking hate that movie so much.I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for attention, I can tell you I don't have any. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.If you apologize now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you...And I will kill you.
ZeroCorpse: It's very simple. It's obvious- Especially if you read the book version...A generation later, the boy from the first movie is reading to HIS kid (or grandkid, if they wait to much longer). He tells the same story, but HIS way. Because that's the point of the first movie. Granddad is reading "the good parts" of the book and skipping stuff on purpose, and he's telling the story his way, with his embellishments.So you have the exact same story, but with a lot of changes. The different actors would be how the new boy in the story pictures the characters (because we all see someone different when we read a book's description of a character). The changes in the story would be the narrator's own influences updating and altering the story to fit the situation with his son/grandson.So perhaps in this version, he leaves out the part about the Cliffs of Madness and substitutes something else. Or he makes the sword fights longer and more epic. Or he changes Buttercup's name to Princess Mathilda (because he never liked Buttercup). Or perhaps he throws in some more pirates because they were mentioned in the version he heard, and he always wanted to hear more about them and his granddad always skipped that stuff. Maybe he cuts out some more kissing. Maybe he changes Inigo to a Frenchman because he can't do a Spanish accent when reading those parts.The point is, the story can be altered to be something different without being totally different, and it would still be in line with the basic theme of the first movie. It's about a story being told in a special way.
