If you have seen the film, watch it again and enjoy the good times. Watch it with your kids -- they will be running around pretending to wield a sword and quoting "prepare to die!" for at least a week.

The film is one of the funniest of all time, and has probably contributed more common catch-phrases to American culture than any other films besides (perhaps) Casablanca, the Wizard of Oz and the original Star Wars trilogy. The performances are classics, and it is on the AFI's list of 100 Best Film Comedies.

For those of you who have not yet done this assignment, THIS is the real Inigo Montoya:

(That would be Mandy Patinkin, age 34, in a really goofy wig and moustache.)
Now that's an order I can follow with pleasure. Just cranked it up on my TV screen. Funniest fairytale movie ever.

I love Peter Falk and a young Fred Savage (during his Wonder Years time) doing their grandfather/grandson asides. (The grandfather reads a fairytale story to his sick grandson. The story of poor farmboy Wesley and Princess Buttercup.) The Grandson: Theyre kissing again. Do we have to read the kissing parts?
