The Princess Bride Quotes Remembered (Pictures)
Some of our favourite quotes from The Princess Bride
The Princess Bride 25th anniversary has arrived and with it, a Blu-ray special edition featuring loads of brand new extras including interviews, behind the scenes action and much more.
This cult classic fairytale movie arrived on our screens in 1988 featuring a hilarious ensemble cast that has kept us gripped for a quarter of a century of watching. It is the story of how a beautiful young woman named Buttercup (Robin Wright) is forced into almost marrying the deceitful Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon), before being captured by a group of not so bright but not so evil crooks; a Spanish fencer named Inigo (Mandy Patinkin), a Turkish giant named Fezzik (André the Giant) and their Sicilian boos Vizzini (Wallace Shawn). However, along the way she is reunited with her former love Westley (Cary Elwes) who she believed to be dead until then, and they all go about attempting to bring down Buttercup's fiancé, the future King of Florin.
Although it was never a major success at the box office, this classic Oscar nominated film was well-received by critics on its release and it has remained a family favourite ever since, being especially regarded as one of the most quotable films of all time. Some of the best The Princess Bride quotes are worth bringing up again:
Westley: 'As you wish.'
Ingio: 'Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.'
Westley: 'Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while.'
Miracle Max: 'You rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles.'
Buttercup: 'You can't hurt me. Westley and I are joined by the bonds of love. And you cannot track that, not with a thousand bloodhounds, and you cannot break it, not with a thousand swords.'
Buttercup: Westley, what about the R.O.U.S.'s?
Westley: Rodents Of Unusual Size? I don't think they exist.
[Immediately, attacked by an R.O.U.S.]
It will certainly be a welcome return as director Rob Reiner and Oscar winning screenwriter and novelist William Goldman release this stunning Blu-ray restoration plus plenty of added extras, and all coming to you very soon on March 25th 2013.
