There are movies that are watched and easily forgotten.
There are movies that you like well enough to recommend to your friends.
Then there are movies that become so embedded in your mind and affections that you don’t mind seeing them over and over again, and you find yourself quoting certain phrases from it as part of a secret code with your fellow movie-watchers.
Such a one is The Princess Bride. A hilarious spoof of adventure flicks, this movie has so many memorable moments that it’s impossible to list them (my favorite: “Oh, you mean this gate key?”, followed closely by the Miracle Max visit). In my house, you’ll regularly hear Princess Bride phrases bandied about (“…and that other thing!” “GENTLY!” “So it’s to be torture, is it?”). If you haven’t treated yourself to this classic, remedy the situation right away!
