The Princess Bride is the Wizard of Oz for the Younger Generation

The cast reunited in 2011 for the 25th anniversary of the film The Princess Bride. Rob Reiner was scared that the movie would become another Wizard of Oz. Due to the fact that it was difficult to describe, it flopped in the box office, and became a blockbuster after VHS came out.

It is a good, funny movie. I've seen it several time.

Never seen it, doesn't sound like anything I would like (I'm not a Rob Reiner fan).

One of these days Kevin Costner's 'Water World' will emerge as a great film, even though it was panned as possibly the worst ever produced.

Or 'Idiocracy,' another bomb during its release that will come back to reflect a reality that is troubling, to say the least.
