...rub elbows with each other during lunch time. Eventually she started school with my undying support saying, "Suck it up, buttercup. Go get yourself learned." And while school shopping I was tempted to buy her every shirt that says "Mom Rocks!" before...
Some movies bring on the romance, others fall short brilliantly funny, sarcastic and mocking, and blindingly emotionally sincere, all at once.

The Princess Bride

Opens Friday, Mar 8, 2013 Synopsis: Based on William Goldman's novel of the same name, The Princess Bride is staged as a book read by grandfather (Peter Falk) to his ill grandson (Fred Savage). Falk's character assures a romance-weary Savage that the book has much more to deliver than a simpering love story, including but not limited to fencing, fighting, torture, death, true love, giants, and pirates. Indeed, The Princess Bride offers a tongue-in-cheek fairy tale depicting stable boy-turned-pirate Westley's journey to rescue Buttercup (Robin Wright), his true love, away from the evil prince (Chris Sarandon), whom she had agreed to marry five years after learning of what she had believed to be news of Westley's death. With help from Prince Humperdinck's disgruntled former employee Miracle Max (Billy Crystal), swordsman Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin), and a very large man named Fezzik (Andre the Giant), the star-crossed lovers are reunited. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi Cast: Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Christopher Guest Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
