Plot: A grandfather tells his grandson a classic fairy tale, complete with romance and swashbuckling.
What's in it for guys: Masterful swordplay between Westley and Inigo Montoya, masterful wordplay between all-and-sundry and, of course, Rodents of Unusual Size.
What's in it for girls: The romance between Westley and Buttercup is a swooning love story of equals. And nothing brings a couple closer together on Valentines Day than reciting every single blooming line of dialogue from an old favorite in unison. As they say, "The couple that repeats 'Prince Bride' together... um... somethings together." We'll try to get William Goldman to do a polish on that punchline.
