The perfect movie for a snowy evening

The perfect movie for a snowy evening

Rob Reiner’s adaptation of William Goldman’s fantasy novel The Princess Bride is, arguably, the iconic movie of the ’80s, that somehow manages to transcend the decade and enter into the category of timeless “classic.”  The clip above contains some priceless lines that play on the fantasy genre’s more melodramatic themes, such as:

Buttercup:  “On the high seas your ship attacked, and the Dread Pirate Roberts never takes prisoners.”

Wesley (in disguise):  “I can’t afford to make exceptions. I mean once word leaks out that a pirate has gone soft, people begin to disobey him, and then it’s nothing but work, work, work–all the time.”

Priceless.
