The Princess Bride
It's been almost thirty years since The Princess Bride was released and the film remains imminently quotable and almost universally beloved. Chris, Donna, and Carlos each discovered it at different ages and thus had very different reactions to it. They see where their experiences line up, where they diverge, and offer their thoughts on what makes the movie so endearing.
Topics include: the difficult process of adapting William Goldman's novel into a feature film and how director Rob Reiner cracked the code, the pitch-perfect tone that shifts from sincerity to absurdity over the course of the running time, why Wallace Shawn is sweating so profusely in his big scene, the unconventional way one cast member stayed warm during production, the mystery of The Sloppy Poodle Man, and much much more!
