30 Day Challenge - Day 24

Day 24 - Your favorite movie and what it is about.

The Princess Bride

Considered a "cult classic"

From IMDb

 A kindly grandfather sits down with his ill grandson and reads him a story. The story is one that has been passed down from father to son for generations. As the grandfather reads the story, the action comes alive. The story is a classic tale of love and adventure as the beautiful Buttercup, engaged to the odious Prince Humperdinck, is kidnapped and held against her will in order to start a war, It is up to Westley (her childhood beau, now returned as the Dread Pirate Roberts) to save her. On the way he meets a thief and his hired helpers, an accomplished swordsman and a huge, super strong giant, both of whom become Westley's companions in his quest.

I literally rented this movie every week from our local movie store when I was a little girl.  AND I had a T-shirt with the logo on it that I wore almost EVERY single night.

I can recite the whole movie.

word. for. word.

Still love it, and can watch it whenever it is on.

Hopefully, one day, Gwen will love it too!
