I had just turned nine when The Princess Bride came out. I saw it twice in the theaters, and probably between 80 and 100 times since then. I wore out two VHS tapes of it and now have the DVD on standby. I read William Goldman’s novel that it was based on. I can recite not only the lines but the cuts and camera angles. It’s probably not healthy.
So yeah, I kinda enjoyed “Good Morning America’s” piece on the cast reuniting; it’s fun to see the actors reflect on the lines that get quoted the most. Of course, it’s not the ENTIRE cast. I guess Mandy Patinkin and Fred Savage were too busy with their big important TV careers to show up (Savage is an active TV director now).
Also absent: Andre the Giant and Peter Falk :( *pours out wine poisoned with iocane powder*
