The Princess Bride: fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...

I love The Princess Bride!  It has the rare and perfect combination of action, intellect, humor, and romance. Whether you prefer "murdered by pirates," or "the kissing parts," you'll find something appealing about this charming and memorable story! If you haven't seen it yet, get it right now, and watch it! (you can thank me later)

Is it possible you've never seen The Princess Bride???!!!

Don't go another day without seeing this classic!

      The part where Inigo is trying to break down the door after Humperdink locks it behind him - until Fezzik comes and breaks it down?

      That's what graduate school feels like.

      The battle of wits was one of the many memorable scenes. Loved the climbing up the cliff with just arms too.

      Great lens for a great movie. Well done.

      Nice Lens. Saw this movie with my girlfriend once. Was forced to watch it. Turned out pretty good.

      One of the best things about Princess Bride is the abridgement - the point that Peter Faulk is trying to over. It's a story with all the boring bits taken out (a thing they should of done with the extremely boring Lord of the Rings).

      Anyone that reads this lens and doesn't watch the movie will suffer "Humiliations GALORE." They will also miss one of the greatest sword fights ever filmed.

      The people who haven't seen it must be very young to have missed it. :-) This is one of those "go to" DVDs that's always a good choice when there's nothing else on TV!

      Love the movie and the lens. I couldn't decide if "As you wish" or "Inconceivable" is the better quote.

      Are you serious? There are people out there that have never heard the shreaking eel? Inconceivable!
