EP. 144 — The Princess Bride

Amy & Paul fight for 1987’s Rob Reiner meta-fairytale The Princess Bride! They discuss what makes Reiner’s films stand out, listen to Cary Elwes’ Marlon Brando impression, and ask if this is a perfect example of an ‘everything’ film. Plus: some Andre The Giant stories you won’t believe.
