Rewatch Movie Review – The Princess Bride (plus the top quotable quotes)

the princess bride from 1987
Probably the most quotable movie ever.

I know every quote in The Princess Bride. Many old geeks like me do. I can’t count how many times I’ve seen this classic spoof fantasy. I introduced it to my mother tonight. She enjoyed seeing all the well-known actors in their younger days, especially Fred Savage, who is so young here it hurts.

And by the way, have you seen the 2018 spoof of this spoof with Fred Savage and Deadpool? (That’s a topic for another review.)

The Princess Bride (made in 1987) holds up astoundingly well over time. It looks great. The scenery, the costumes, the sets: all great. The acting is well meaning and fun, providing a really good tale that also sends up the fantasy genre. It’s a fantasy movie the way Spaceballs and Galaxy Quest are to science fiction: parody films that are satisfying in their own right.

It also features one of the best sword fight scenes I’ve ever seen. I don’t know how much fencing and dueling Cary Elwes and Mandy Patinkin studied, but it looked great. I assume their banter about sword fighting styles was accurate.

Great fun…and a little bit bittersweet

Every actor seemed to have a blast. While some actors got to be super playful in their roles, I could tell even the ‘straight men’ had fun. It’s too bad Robin Wright didn’t get to cut up a little, but no one ever said being the eponymous character is easy.

Love love love this app. And, after receiving an email from Dan (the creator) that read as though it was a one-on-one communication sent only to me, I felt compelled to leave a long-overdue review. My son and I are absolutely addicted to this app…especially since I discovered it at the onset of the Marvel craze. Now we use it to confirm if there is a scene following the credits. Often times, we are the ONLY ones there watching the bonus scene…and it cracks us up. LOL! Thanks, RunPee!

It was a little sad to see the beloved Peter Faulk and Andre the Giant alive onscreen, knowing they weren’t around to see the Deadpool callback last year. I also had to translate everything Andre said to my mother this evening, since I guess she doesn’t speak Giant. Since I know every line (literally — don’t you?), I forget that he had a speech impediment. I only see a gigantic sweethearted soul.

We also lost The Princess Bride novel author William Goldman in 2018 (the original book is wonderful BTW), the brilliant mind behind yet another classic film: Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid.

Memorable Quotes from The Princess Bride

I can’t begin to cover all of them. The whole movie is made of great quotes. Here’s a few that stand out: 

My way’s not very sportsmanlike.

Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says different is trying to sell something.

Is this a kissing book?

Inconceivable!

You keep saying that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Good night, Westley. Good work. Sleep well. I’ll most likely kill you in the morning.

You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.

Get used to disappointment.

You mean you’ll put down your rock and I’ll put down my sword and we’ll try to kill each other like civilized people, is that it?

To the pain!

With the two most well-known Princess Bride quotes:

As you wish. (The nicest way to say I love you.)

And the one everyone knows. Say it with me now: “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”

 

A true classic.

I can’t give The Princess Bride anything less than an A+. It’s still beautiful, funny, romantic, touching, and a complete joy to watch anew. It’s one of the best fantasies ever, and the scenes with Fred Savage and Peter Faulk feature the most amusing story bookends ever filmed.

(Until Fred Savage reprised his own role in The Deadpool Before Christmas, of course.)

Movie Grade: A+

    Wow… what a coincidence!

    This film was on offer on Apple TV and it’s one of those movies that I’ve never got around to seeing but have heard lots of positive things about so I bought it and watched it over the holiday period.

    It is brilliant!

    Everybody seemed to be having a ball and that seeped across to give it a real feel good factor; I wish I had seen this years ago!

  2. ROB! You only saw TPB for the first time now? It’s such a part and parcel of my life that I can’t imagine anyone not loving it. So glad you enjoyed it. I don’t know how I’d feel if I saw for the 1st time now.

    I recommend placing this on your annual rewatch list…and introducing it to everyone you can if they missed it earlier.

    Brilliant is exactly right.

    If you can get your hands on the book, it’s great too. The movie skipped over the ‘zoo of horrors’ thing as Inigo and the Giant try to find The Man In Black. I wish that had made it into the movie.

    One of my favorite films ever!
