The Princess Bride

I love this movie. It's completely romantic and good, but it's still got adventures and fighting and giants and all that stuff still. It's so good. Cary Elwes is great because he's so sarcastic and always cute. Robin Wright is amazing and luminous, though she does get annoying after the 3rd or 4th viewing. Mandy Patinkin is always amazing. Chris Sarandon is the Prince and he's awful (in a good way). (I just found out that he also does the voice for Jack Skellington in Nightmare before Christmas.) Then there's Andre the Giant. He's so good, and friendly and he rhymes! One thing I should mention is that even if you've seen this movie, you should definitely read the book. The movie, as all movies do, leaves out some really funny bits, and some stuff in the movie is funnier now that I've read it...

Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
