The Princess Bride Movie Review is Family Fun

| |

Director Rob Reiner brings us a comedy the whole family can enjoy.  This movie is full of adventure and dialogue that will have you laughing your head off.

When I first saw this 80′s movie, I could not stop laughing at the quotes such as, “No more rhymes now – I mean it ! Anybody want a peanut.” or “I’ll explain, and I’ll be sure to use small words so that you’ll be sure to understand. You wart-hog-faced-buffoon!”

The Princess Bride is a movie you can watch many times and still find it amusing years later. If you have friends who have not seen this movie, you should invite them over for pizza and The Princess Bride.

Just think, your friends might have the time of their lives watching this classic fairy tale.  This may also qualify as a good date movie or if you’ve had a really bad day at work, you can use this fun film as a cheer up it will be ok movie.

This film does contain some violent scenes of sword fighting, giant killer eels, quicksand, poisoning and a torture device. The sword fighting scenes are very impressive and apparently Mandy Patankin and Cary Elwes studied for months to make the sword play look realistic.  Incidentally, Mandy Patankin  played Inigo Montoya who many us fans have quoted numerous times.

I thought Buttercup played by Robin Wright Penn and the mysterious masked man played by Cary Elwes were fantastic!  One word you will never forget from this movie is “Inconceivable!”  Two lines that are often quoted by fans are “I’ll have what she’s having” and “You can’t handle the truth.”

Here are some more witty quotes from the movie, “You seem a decent fellow, I’d hate to kill you. You seem a decent fellow, I’d hate to die.” or how about this one,  “Would you consider me as an alternative to suicide?”

In the wondrous words of Mandy Patinkin I confidently say to you, “My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”

This brilliantly made movie is a classic that will be enjoyed for many generations to come.
