A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Some cool stuff there!  I read the book long before the movie came out, and loved it.
I'm still mad that the movie left out Prince Humperdinck's Zoo of Death!

And 4 More Things You May Not Know About "The Princess Bride."

(1) 1 of my top 50 films.
(2) It has one of the best casts I have ever seen in the film, and (IMHO) is worth seeing just for the cast alone.
(3) The swordfight between Cary Elwes and Mandy Pantinkin is one of the best swordfights and one of the best action scenes I have ever seen in a film.
(4) And it is one of the few films that I think is actually better than the book upon which it is based, even though the book was by noted screenwriter William Goldman.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
