Blogiversary Bash: A Quote Tribute to The Princess Bride

princess bride

So if Blogiversary Bash is all about celebrating our favorite things in film/television, how could I not post something about The Princess Bride? This movie literally has something for everyone–action, adventure, young Cary Elwes, hilarity, good performances, young Cary Elwes, good dialogue, pirates, young Cary Elwes, a giant, a love story…Did I mention young Cary Elwes? I am thoroughly convinced this is the perfect movie. Or at least I was convinced until a coworker informed me that she actually hates it…What’s up with that?! I hope you guys don’t hate Princess Bride because you’re about to get quote smacked with it. Rather than a review, I wanted to share a few of the many iconic quotes in this much-loved film.


#1: Any time Westley says this:

princess bride 1



#2: The rhyming game:


#3: Vizzini’s abuse of this word:

 princess bride 14


#4: When this gentlemanly sass happens:

princess bride 3 princess 4


#5: Fezzik disapproving of “his way:”

Vizzini: Finish him. Finish him, your way.
Fezzik: Oh good, my way. Thank you Vizzini…what’s my way?
Vizzini: Pick up one of those rocks, get behind a boulder, in a few minutes the man in black will come running around the bend, the minute his head is in view, hit it with the rock.

  1. This was actually the flick I was going to do for Blogiversary Bash. Oh. And each and every one of these quotes is totally fantastic.

    I’ll find something else now. 🙂

  2. I’ve never seen this (sorry!) but I know the tall guy with curly hair as Andre The Giant! Us wrestling fans go a little mental when we see one of our own doing anything else other than wrestling, haha. I’ll need to check the film out!


  3. The Princess Bride is too much awesomeness. In fact, I’m almost disappointed with myself for featuring this movie already on my Throwback Thursday segment, cuz I so want to review this film again and again!!! Great stuff Cara. 😀

  4. Reblogged this on Silver Screen Serenade and commented:
