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?

IMO, what was inappropriate was doing anything more than saying "Oh, I'm sorry it never occurred to me people wouldn't know the reference" and then putting on a jacket, a blanket, or turning it inside out and having a good laugh about it. (I would assume he knew how to read and would recognize that he had the words "prepare to die" on his shirt)

Going to the press with a comment from another passenger relayed by a flight attendant? Really? Talk about a drama king who wants his 15 minutes of fame!

That was a pretty good eugoogaly


Do you understand that the world does not revolve around you and your do whatever it takes, ruin as many people's lives, so long as you can make a name for yourself as an investigatory journalist, no matter how many friends you lose or people you leave dead and bloodied along the way, just so long so you can make a name for yourself as an investigatory journalist, no matter how many friends you lose or people you leave dead and bloodied and dying along the way?

What is amazing is that people would actually take a message written on an oversized name tag on a t-shirt as an actual threat.

In all fairness, we don't know that he ran to the press, do we? Maybe he tweeted and it got picked up. Of course, if you have a link showing that he contacted the press, then I have no problem admitting that I'm wrong.

As for the rest of your post, you are basing your opinion on some inaccurate information. He didn't just pass on a "comment from another passenger relayed by a flight attendant." He was actually asked by him/her if he could remove it. And, since he didn't have another shirt with him, he did ask to borrow one but the flight attendant never brought one. I think trying to cover up with a blanket during the entire flight is unreasonable, although I do think he could have just turned the shirt inside out, but maybe nobody thought of that.

As I read it, yes, the flight attendant asked him to change his shirt but based on a comment from another passenger. She did not enforce him changing it, even when he told her he'd change it if he could have the pilot's shirt. IMO, clearly at that point she knew HE was more of a cooperation problem that the original passenger that complained and decided not to pursue it.

Whether he tweeted it or whatever, he was the source. The airline hadn't pursued it. I hope he sees it as an amusing anecdote. IMO that's all it is. Making more of it is way too much drama IMO.

We're all basing our opinions on a short article. My opinion is different than yours.

So every time some person misunderstands or doesn't "get" something everyone else has to accommodate them? Good grief. If I hear someone playing violent music then I should assume they are going to act on it, and they should have to turn it off? People need to learn to mind their own business and quit trying to make the world comply to their understanding or viewpoint.

It's funny if you think about it. There are some threads on here where people are up in arms "why don't you think about someone else?" Then there are these threads where "People should leave others alone!" Kind of interesting.

Granny square, I'm not singling you out, I have no idea what you've said in the past. Your post just made me think about this.

I've often commented that people are not only way too sensitive about everything nowadays but also want to control what other people think way too much. This is a lot of fuss over nothing even though I do think that the guy should have realized that someone might complain.

I wouldn't assume he "ran to the media". It's a funny story to fans of the movie, so I can imagine him telling a friend who told a friend who told a friend who happened to be a reporter having a slow news day.
