Princess bride

Great movie Andre the giant was my favorite character.

An entertaining classic!

The Princess Bride is just one of those must-see American movies, chock-full of puns and jokes which have soaked into modern culture. The movie varies from the book, but certainly not in a bad way. Funny, original, and very memorable, the Princess Bride is great for the whole PG-13 family.
