I have never seen "The Princess Bride."
Hard to believe, right?
Well, after hearing about it on a few different podcasts I decided that I should see what all the fuss is about. I put a request in for it at my local libary and was able to watch it this past Monday (April 1) with my son.
It was a cute movie. It was fun to see Andre the Giant again. I remember seeing him wrestling on TV when I was my son's age (currently 8).
But you know what? I wasn't that enchanted with it. I think that because it had been hyped up so much and that it was a favorite for so many people that for me it got built it up to be more than what it really was.
It was sort of a letdown in that respect.
But ... like I said earlier, it's a cute movie. My son got into it and when Inigo Montoya said to Count Rugen "You killed my father. Prepare to die you son of a b*&ch" My son's jaw dropped and his eyes were HUGE as he looked at me to see if I had heard the bad words.
My jaw was dropped too because I wasn't expecting it, but also because I knew my son would be looking back at me and I had to look just as shocked as he was. It was a priceless moment.
