Right of passage

Tonight Josh is experiencing a right of passage... he is being given the opportunity to watch The Princess Bride. I have found that this is much like The Beatles in that you either love it or hate it.  It's inconceivable to me that other people can not find the genius in this movie.

This movie is completely endearing.  From the "as you wish" to the rhyming "no more rhyming.  I mean it.  Anybody want a peanut?"  And from the iocane powder to the six fingered man.

"My name is Enigo Montoya.  You killed my father.  Prepare to die."

And from the ROUS's to the Fire Swamp...

It's genius.  I love it.

I'm surprised I didn't name one of my children Wesley.
