The Princess Bride: one of my favorite movies!

I grew up watching this movie.  I’ve probably seen it about a hundred times!  And I’ll likely see it a hundred more times… 😉  It just never gets old!  We’ve been laughing over it for as long as I can remember.  And quoting over it…  It’s a hilarious movie, okay? 😀

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

~ Starring ~

Robin Wright as Buttercup
Cary Elwes as Wesley
André the Giant as Fezzik
Mandy Patinkin as Inigo
Wallace Shawn as Vizzini

Fred Savage as the Grandson
and Peter Falk as the Grandfather/Narrator

~ Storyline ~

When a young boy falls ill, his grandfather pops round to visit him. To cheer his grandson up, Grandpa has brought a storybook; The Princess Bride, a tale of the love between the beautiful Buttercup and the besotted Westley, a love cruelly interrupted by Westley’s tragic apparent death at sea when seeking his fortune. Heartbroken, Buttercup has sworn never to love again, but accepts the marriage proposal of the rich and handsome Prince Humperdinck, heir to the throne of Florin; but death is no barrier to true love, and in a story filled with exotically-accented swordsmen, big-hearted giants, genius kidnappers, sadistic torturers, vile swamps, Rodents of Unusual Size, the Dread Pirate Roberts and a somewhat embittered miracle worker, the love between Westley and Buttercup twists and turns on a path filled with adventure. Will the True Love of Westley and Buttercup win the day? Will Inigo Montaya find the six-fingered man who murdered his father? Will Humperdinck’s evil plans come to fruition? And, more importantly, will Grandpa be able to tell the story without any of the yucky kissing?

      You just watched it for the first time, and I just watched it for the….. 100th-ish time. Lol! It’s a long-time favorite in my family & I’ve been watching it my whole life. 😉 I’m glad you got to see it, though! And it is so re-watchable! 😉

    One of my favorites! I bought the book after seeing the movie, and loved it, too. When Cary Elwes put out “As You Wish” my brother bought it for me for Christmas. Loved it! Keeper all the way around.
