Why Are Movies Like ‘The Princess Bride’ So Darn Quotable?

Princess BrideHost Craig Cohen talks with Houston area film critic Joe Leydon about the 1987 film The Princess Bride, and why it and films like it (if there are any) are so darned quotable.

There’s a free outdoor screening of the film at Market Square Park this Friday night at 8:30, and it will also be shown, in “quote-along” form, at the Alamo Drafthouse at Vintage Park on July 19 and 22.
