Sadly, although I do love The Princess Bride, I blame it for Shrek, which is shit.

In my experience, yelling Princess Bride quotes just about anywhere will net you 50 new friends.

I don't think I quite realized that we both were digging on Cary Elwes, though.

Hahahah

I think it's one of those films for me that, having seen it once, I'll never need or even really want to see again, but I'm glad I saw it that one time and still remember just about every line from it one way or another. (See also Office Space.) I do still have the book, I think...*checks shelf*...yes indeed, as well as The Silent Gondoliers.

ned otm. ok to see once, maybe with a girl or a boy or your mom, after that you start mumbling things under your breath while taking fencing lessons or making point-by-point comparisons between westley and captain moroni.

I've never done either. I've seen it maybe 50 times since 1987.

So bow down to her if you want. Bow to her. Bow to the Queen of Slime, the Queen of Filth, the Queen of putrescence! Boo! Boo! Rubbish! Filth! Slime! Muck! Boo! Boo! Boo!

Watched it for the first time the other day - it had passed me by as a child. Was disappointed by the lack of proper monsters and general magic and stuff a la Labyrinth/Neverending Story. Also disppointed by the ending - everything just seemed a bit too easy and you never saw the baddy getting properly punished. Great script though.

i'd rather watch a real fairy tale movie than this lily-livered piece of shit.*

* note: "shit" may be hyperbolic.

This is so OTM! This movie and (surprisingly, imo) Monty Python & the Holy Grail all quoted endlessly in LDS seminaries all over America.

Man fauxhemian is all over the Mormon jokes on this thread. Do they still post here? wesley/moroni is killing me. Killing! I'm easily pleased, you see.

so Fred Savage is what, like 30 now?

when I was a kid "Robin Hood: Men in Tights" was shown on CC all the time, didn't realize until I actually saw the Princess Bride what a rip-off it is

really one of the few movies to be really funny and smart and touching without being vulgar, appeals to comic book geeks as well as kids and people like my Mom, I dunno how many movies like that exist

frogbs, Friday, 18 November 2011 18:14 (seven years ago) link

Fred has to be into his thirties, I was surprised at what a good director he's turned into -- he directed a lot of the episodes of Party Down, and quite a few from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Fred Savage is 35

he was too busy talking about being in The Princess Bride on Happy Endings to show up for the shoot

Much Ado About Nuttin (DJP), Friday, 18 November 2011 18:41 (seven years ago) link

I thought Fred Savage was like 90 or something

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.

caught this last night for the nth time and i found it much better all round than i remember, with the exception of wallace shawn who is as awful in the role as ever

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!"
