What is it about this movie anyway? This is the one movie that everyone I know likes, accept for me. I have never liked this movie. I have tried several times to watch it, searching for whatever I am missing about it, that everyone loves. Am I missing a humor gene? Am I not twisted enough? Maybe I just have a mental block about it.
I remember in high school hearing the title and thinking this movie was a romantic fairy tail, along the lines of Snow White, only not in animation. I was surprised to find it was a spoof movie. I keep thinking. maybe it just didn’t meet my expectations the first time around. I should really try again.
Over the years, I have tried three or four times to watch it. Greg (my husband) thinks it is hilarious, along with every other person I have ever asked about it. Unfortunately it just never holds my interest long enough for me to really watch it and give it a full shot. I feel like there is something seriously wrong with me. I like twisted movies. I cracked up watching Napoleon Dynamite, Strange Brew, American Pie, Austin Powers, and many others. However, the Princess Bride has eluded me. Tell me I am not the only person on earth that doesn’t like this movie.
