The Princess Bride Movie Phenomenon
Great Classic Movie of Love, Comedy Adventure, and Action
Our favorite family movie of all time has to be The Princess Bride. This classic movie icon came out in 1987 before my kids were born and they grew up with this enduring fairy tale of true love, action, sword fights, giants, pirates, princes, revenge, strange creatures, and heroism.
Even the most jaded adults will smile as they watch Andre the Giant rescue the "lovely lady" and Billy Crystal play the wizard to brings Westly back to life. It's cliched, it's sappy, it's cheesy, it's fun! When I watch movies I don't want something serious or have to think too hard. It's a fairy tale that doesn't take itself too serious.
Princess Bride has turned into a cult movie and a phenomenon and will go down in history as one of the most beloved and quotable movies. The witty one-liners are sprinkled throughout the movie by every character and similar to Rocky Horror Picture Show you will find yourself talking to the TV and yelling out quotes. That's what makes it half the fun.
If you're looking for a perfect movie night flix, something for a slumber party, birthday party, or a sleep-over I highly recommend this movie.
"This is true love - you think this happens every day?"— Westley
Princess Bride on DVD and Blue Ray - Own a cult movie classic
I think I've bought at least three copies of this movie, one by one the kids take them to college or a friends and they never return. If someone says "Movie Night!" the movie most requested is Princess Bride. Never fails that someone in the room says "I've never seen it", then everyone turns and looks at them with disbelief and says "Then we're watching it tonight"
The popcorn and gets made, beverages brought out, pop, Coke, or adult beverages depending on your age group, and the hilarity and quotes begin.
The great movie classic, The Princess Bride in both DVD and Blu-ray. This family movie is a must in anyone's movie collection. It has something for everyone. Love, romance, sword fighting, adventure, death, drama, giants, quest you name it, it's in here.
