[Reel-Reviews] The Princess Bride (3 stars)

Rob Reiner made his name directing This is Spinal Tap. Three years later, he was directing what should be a TVM kids film. Somehow, in the intervening 20 years, The Princess Bride has become something of a cult classic – designated such by drunk students and those harking back to a bygone (80s) era.

A bit of a mystery to me but a harmless and fun way to kill 90 mins on a cold, dark Saturday afternoon.
