Just finished watching it. It was just as fun as it was 25 years ago. However, I watched in on a much smaller screen. The theater in which I saw it for the first time was one of the last, really large screen theaters. It was such a shame when they tore it down.

Inconceivable! :P

Perhaps you should turn in the assailants ...

Mandy Patinkin: 25 Years After 'The Princess Bride,' He's Not Tired Of That Line

Originally posted by Linked Article:


For his part, Patinkin doesn't get bored with hearing his old dialogue again. "I never do," he says ... yes, people do come up and quote him back to himself especially that one line. The one. You know the one.

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."


Thanks for posting that link -- I enjoyed reading it. :)

What?! Good lord wimmen, that's like saying you're a Brit who's never heard of Monty Python! Mind PB didn't last as long as MP did, but still...!


I still liked Fawlty Towers instead more than Monty Python...

It's one of those movies that, if you don't see it in the era of it's original release, you probably won't enjoy it half as much if at all. Same is true of watching most of those classics again 25 years later (Blazing Saddles, Stripes, Porky's, etc)


I know what you are saying -- I have been disappointed rewatching some movies I loved from my younger days. However, I caught a portion of Princess Bride on cable recently and I personally think it has held up a lot better than Blazing Saddles, Stripes, and Porky's.


I think Princess Bride has held up exceedingly well. I'm not sure the quotes lend themselves to interesting photography, though. But we'll have to see. I will enjoy having an excuse to watch the movie again just to find out. :)

My kids think it's as great as I do.

Like the "It's because I'm green, isn't it?" line from "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas", which was a reference to the big flap in NYC (I think) where a cabbie refused to pick up some celebrity, and the celebrity used the same line, except with a different color...

Don't think i ever saw it so i just checked here; quotes

Miracle Max: You rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles.

Oh wow, this is gonna be interesting;

[as Buttercup prepares to commit suicide with a dagger]
Westley: There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage yours.
