Episode 61: The Princess Bride (1987)

As you wish (or maybe as you didn’t wish at all, who can tell?), the Bit Players are here with a discussion on the 1987 Rob Reiner classic The Princess Bride. It’s a film we all know and love for its funloving, lighthearted take on not only fairy tales but the way fairy tales are told, and it is a straight-up nostalgia fest as the guys break down the film. They think about whether the film will continue to last in the canon and the reasons its stayed around this long, from the incredible cast to the sharp-witted dialogue.
