Ron Howard was never more gripping and Rob Reiner was never sharper (well...maybe in Spinal Tap). I'm actually surprised this is so hard for me. It's one of those match-ups you'd never think about.

Great as The Princess Bride is, I'd take the gripping Apollo 13 any day. That movie still gets me, every time. I don't know if the fact that I actually saw that one in the theater has anything to do with it or not...

The Princess Bride is a comic masterpiece. Apollo 13 is fine, but not in the same league.

I've nothing but admiration for The Princess Bride, but Apollo 13 is simply the better, more engrossing film.

Apollo 13 is an incredible, amazing movie, but The Princess Bride just has that special place in my heart...
