The Princess Bride: “Anybody Want a Peanut?”

#Hindsighters, Darth normally writes her show notes with a mixture of condescension and sarcasm. She has to make an exception for this particular film, however, because it’s simply too perfect to critique. Jason throws some unexpected shade at Rob Reiner, but The Princess Bride simply cannot be touched.

Though Darth and Jason find it inconceivable that Wallace Shawn won’t repeat his most famous line from The Princess Bride for his fans, it’s comforting to know that Mandy Patinkin and Cary Elwes will quote any of their nostalgic lines as you wish.

On the subject of famous movie lines, Darth, Jason, and their special guest, Cece, have to make the argument that The Princess Bride might be the single most quotable movie of all time. Anyone who says differently is selling something.

Darth’s shameless plug aside, Cary Elwes is not the only one with a vault of stories about The Princess Bride. Through their research on this episode, Darth, Jason, and Cece discovered that Fezzik and Buttercup may have been different actors entirely. They’re honestly unsure if Baby Jay Leno would approve. The casting of The Princess Bride is utterly flawless. In what other world would Columbo read you a bedtime story where Billy Crystal is a bitter wizard who loves MLTs? 

Ultimately, there simply isn’t enough praise to lavish upon the world’s most perfect story. Every man wishes for his Buttercup, every woman wishes for her Westley. As it turns out, nothing can stop true love or Cary Elwes, not even being mostly dead.
