23. 'The Princess Bride'
Rob Reiner may very well be the greatest director of the 1980s, rivaled only by Steven Spielberg. That was the decade that the former All in the Family actor made This Is Spinal Tap, Stand by Me, When Harry Met Sally and, in what might be his most worshipped movie not about a rock band, The Princess Bride. It's an amazing romance/adventure/fantasy/comedy film featuring Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Robin Wright, Wallace Shawn and, in a brilliant bit of casting, Andre the Giant. It opened to rave reviews, and its over the years its reputation has only grown.
