This was your first time watching it!? I am so glad you got to give this goofy little movie a whirl. :)

Just finished the book today. I loved it! I feel like I enjoy this book more and more with each read. :) I will be making syllabub soon, thanks to one of Buttercup's delightfully dumb blunders!

Allie Oh man! I read the book over this past summer. It’s one of those rare instances when the movie is better than the book (shock! Gasp!). I can quote the entire movie....which sometimes gets on people’s nerves lol.

I love both the book and the movie, though I was definitely exposed to the movie before I read the book. Have you read As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes? I have not read it yet, but one of my good friends sent me a signed copy this past year!

Allie I haven’t yet. I would like to get it on audio though since Cary does the narrating!!!

YAY! I love his voice! That would probably be a really cool one to listen to!

Sainabou | 230 comments So I ended up watching this movie tonight
Ive never seen it before and I have to say it was really good and funny

The Billy Crystal parts loool
I really want to read the book now

That was your first time watching the film? :D I am glad you liked it!! It is one of my favorites. Wayyyy back in the day, my friend and I used to watch this movie Saturday mornings. I love it. The book is also fabulous. :D

Sainabou | 230 comments I obviously need to read the book lol

Yeah I think I only started hearing about Princess Bride after I joined goodreads :)

Allie The book stinks :/

But this movie is on tonight at 10:00 on the channel called POP for Comcast users. I can’t not watch if it’ll be on tv...even though I own the movie :)

Sainabou | 230 comments LOL :)

Omg does it? :( ughhhhh
Fine I won't read it yet ;)

Allie Read it for points!!!

Just don’t say I didn’t warn you lol.

This is one of those rare times where the movie is soooo much better.

Sainabou | 230 comments Hahahah! Okay will do

(you saying that suddenly just reminded me that I also need to watch "Breakfast at Tiffany's lol, you also liked the movie better)

Allie Yes, you do!!! That could have been heavily influenced by Audrey Hepburn though!!

Sainabou | 230 comments Well she is awesome so :)

Sam | The Dust Bunny Reader (thedustbunnyreader) | 1086 comments Mod
OMG! This is totally one of my favorite books! :D

Sam | The Dust Bunny Reader (thedustbunnyreader) | 1086 comments Mod
Also, I have had a heck of a time finding Breakfast at Tiffany's. I tried to get it from the library a few times, but it is never available. Gonna try reading it next year!

Sainabou | 230 comments I listened to it on audio which I found on youtube last year :) maybe you could look there

Sam | The Dust Bunny Reader (thedustbunnyreader) | 1086 comments Mod
Ohhhhh...great idea! I will do that, thanks!
