The Princess Bride

If you've never seen The Princess Bride, you may be as skeptical as little Fred Savage is at the beginning of the film. It sounds kinda mushy, doesn't it? Where's the action? But rest assured, this fairytale homage/spoof does have plenty of swordplay, monsters, torture, and vengeance. Also jokes, endlessly quotable lines ("Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."), and yes, mushy romance. Plus, it has wrestler Andre the Giant, proving both his strength and his wit. Really, there's something for everyone – men, women, adults, and kids – in this strange hybrid, an old-school swashbuckler filtered through a modern, ironic sensibility.
