Of all the flicks that I remember from growing up in the 1980s, one of the best was The Princess Bride. I’ll admit to not wanting to watch it in my youth because it sounded like a “girl movie” to my younger self.
The Princess Bride is one of the most classic of the ’80s movies out there. I harbor a secret fear they will try and remake it and ruin all that was good about the original like the new Ghostbusters did.
I really like The Princess Bride. I can remember not wanting to watch it because it was a “girl’s movie” and now I’ve seen it a million times. The Honest Movie Trailers folks have put one together for the classic flick and it sums it up well.

I happen to think that one of the greatest movies ever made is The Princess Bride. I’ve seen it approximately 157 times over the years. One of the most memorable scenes is where the Dread Pirate Roberts has to match wits with a Sicilian.
I have a well-established penchant for the The Princess Bride and LEGO constructs. Combine the two and you have my attention. Some folks had some builders at the Brickworld Chicago event cobbled together some awesome dioramas of scenes from the classic movie.
I’ve said on many occasions, one of my all time favorite movies of my youth is The Princess Bride. I’ve punched people in the past for saying it was a chick flick. The film is one of those cult classics that I’ve shared with my kids, and ended up with a chihuahua named Buttercup thanks to it.
One of my all-time favorite films is The Princess Bride. I once got into a fist fight with a kid back in the day who said it was a girls’ movie. I’ve watched the movie more times than I can count and my eight-year-old daughter likes it so much she named her chihuahua Buttercup.
