Princess Bride successfully maintains a tone of extremely light handed satire with the barest pinch of self-mockery. If you respond to that tone, then you will find it a very entertaining movie. If not, you'll be repulsed by each and every minute of it, because that tone is the whole of the movie.

Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line! (I wish for these to also be my final words)

agreed. it would have been difficult to ruin Shawn's role. because it is a fairy tale, and he is written as an irritating little dweeb, overplaying the part was nearly impossible.

for contrast, guest's readings are almost absolutely flat, and his *looks* are great

and he kills it in the role

Until this moment I thought Rob Reiner and Ron Howard were the same person. Like, when Rob Reiner is in Spinal Tap (not looking at all like Ron Howard) I'd think "huh that dude looks real different with a beard"

Anyway I really love the sword fighting in this movie and I like the moment when The King says "won't that be nice ;) She kissed me! She kissed me!"
