PRINCESS BRIDE(directed by Rob Reiner) Is Goofy Fun
This is reportedly Ted Cruz's favorite movie, of which he can quote every line. I can see why. If ever a movie was made for dufuses, this is it. But it is a very fun and entertaining movie for dufuses, and it has at least two or three very inspired scenes: The first duel, the battle of wits, and the rescue at the end when the romantic hero summons a weird combo of skill, strength, and wits amidst his semi-paralyzed state to overcome the evil prince's plot and save his damsel in distress. Not a pretty movie except for the romantic leads. One wonders which character Cruz identifies with most. The dashing hero? Or the cunning and conniving villains. Or one of many freaks? Probably all of them.
