My wife's favorite movie!

by Bavak on Jan 30, 2014

Love it. Only recently did I discover this movie is some sort of cult classic. Go figure!


Bad By Me Re: Too Good by Others

This is not a phenomenal motion ptcture. Too often the dialog is just a repeat (for comic reasons? Fails) Stretches to much for us to believe Andre could climb a rope with three people hanging on up a 1000 foot cliff. That logic exchange about which poisoned cup to avoid is retarded. We are expected to believe some nut in a fairy tale has developed electricity and he uses it to torture people? There are some good points though. The Grandfather/grandson reading together is heartwarming. The sword fights are well staged. The Kisses are okay. The stunt people deserve Kudos. The Irish countryside is as ever a wonderful backdrop. The DVD anniversary edition has some behind the scenes interviews, a lame connection through the outcome of a game to its website (self-promotion in a kids movie?) but no dubbed commentary (I think they all just want to let this dog go as far as it can without rocking the boat.


Great Movie

Really enjoy this movie. Have watched it over a dozen times. Never get tired of it.


Nice to spend time with these people

Rob Reiner gives another heartfelt romantic comedy. He chooses his actors very well. Cary Elwes, Robin Wright Penn, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon and Christopher Guest present us with memorable performances. The music, the cinematography, the design, all blended together to make for an appealing movie.

"Let me explain. No, is too much. Let me sum up." If you like clever, memorable dialogue, this is a movie you will appreciate. I'm dying to say to certain politicians, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." But be careful--"People in masks cannot be trusted."
