This book and movie are wonderful. I first was introduced to this movie by my friend Marybeth. She later gave me a copy of the book. I think over my lifetime I have seen this movie about 15 times. It is a very quotable movie and full of great comedy. I love the parts with Billy Crystal. The sword fight on the top of the cliffs of insanity was incredible. Inigo always saying,”Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die.” The rhyming of Andre the giant and Wallace Shawn made this movie so memorable.

The book is filled with some fantastic things as well. And it ends in a much less happy manner. I love how the book reads and I think I could give it another read soon. I should have Allison read it too because she doesn’t like the movie but I bet she would enjoy the book more.

I just found out that there are many versions of this movie, there is the Dread Pirate version, the Buttercup version and the special edition. And if you buy a movie from Amazon you get a free TV show download. Pretty cool.

    I’ve probably seen the Princess Bride 50 times or more… all-time favorite movie! I loaned out my copy of the book though, and never got it back. I really need to stop lending people my books.

    I love, love, love this movie–amazing display of sword fighting! I definitely need to get around to reading the book.
