The Princess Bride
Settle into your seat as Grandpa cracks the spine on 'The Princess Bride', Rob Reiner's outlandish storybook love story full of inconceivable characters, quotes and capers. Watch as Buttercup loses Westley and he fights for her hand – past pirates, poison, the douchey Prince and Mandy Patinkin. Through the fire swamp, past a giant and with a detour in the Pit of Despair, the pair of lovers is brought together and torn apart again. Like a portal to childhood, 'The Princess Bride' is an eternal staple of nostalgic slumber parties, and balmy nights at the movies.
