"It's a product of a very, very confuse, twisted mind," jokes Rob Reiner when he's asked why it's so hard to peg him down as a filmmaker. When you hear the name Martin Scorsese associated with a film (whom Reiner worked with in last year's 'The Wolf of Wall Street'), there's a fairly clear picture of what the tone of that movie might be like. But, with Reiner, it's almost impossible. This is the man who directed 'This is Spinal Tap,' 'Stand By Me,' The Princess Bride,' 'When Harry Met Sally' and 'A Few Good Men' -- some of the most beloved films ever made that film's couldn't be more different.

Who doesn't want to hear the song version of "Mawwiage, Mawwiage"?

'The Princess Bride' is known for many famous lines, perhaps the most famous of which is the classic, "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." It's quoted and repeated and even reprinted on t-shirts. But you might not want to wear your Inigo Montoya shirt on your next airplane flight lest you wind up like poor Wynand Mullins whose 'Princess Bride' t-shirt was deemed a security risk. Inconceivable!
