Chris Muir, author of the amazing Day by Day cartoons, had a great line from The Princess Bride in his cartoon for 10/13/05. He had someone saying that pirates weren’t like Johnny Depp, but more “like the dread pirate Richard Simmons.”
And the movie moves into mainstream consciousness.
I saw it a year after it came out with my soon-to-be beloved husband. I loved that movie. I’ve seen it four or five times since. Which, for me, is like winning all the Hollywood awards. I just don’t watch movies.
