It was *great*! I guess it would be "so-so" for anyone who hasn't seen the movie, but then again, why would they be watching it in the first place? :)
ANY fan of the Princess Bride would be remiss by not watching this, as well as all of the extras included on the Special Edition DVD. The only thing I haven't done yet is watch it with the director's commentary - and I'm really looking forward to that. The behind-the-scenes footage, bits of trivia, and the telling of how the movie came to be was most enjoyable.
Best parts (IMHO): the fencing lessons, insights into Andre the Giant's life, seeing the actors/actresses now, Mandy Patinkin's story about his father dying of cancer, Billy Crystal, and the story about Count Rugen and kids coming up to him (in real life) and staring at his hands. Hi Kevin!
So if you haven't seen it, go get it tonight. Don't miss out on this one.
