Thread: have you heard of these?!?
I also loved Ever After. Drew Barrymore's best role.
The Princess Bride is one of my favourite parodies of the genre. Favourite bit: When the hero tricks the bad guy into poisoning himself, while he has built up immunity to the poison.
I'm afraid that I don't know the others though.
'The Mad, .... Mad World' is still shown on TV and is basically a star studded (about a dozen big names) comedy race to find the hidden loot before the cops get it. It is mad cap from beginning to end.
Last night I again watched 'Key Largo' starring Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson, and Lauren Bacall. About crooks holed up in a Florida hotel during a hurricane just after the end of prohibition. A really great movie that #1ElijahLover left off her list, of course it isn't as good as Casablanca, but then what is.
As for the movies named by #1Elijahlover, I have seen only Emma, and two versions of that movie. However, IMHO none of these movies is as good as the book! What I liked the most of Jane Austen base movies, was the famous miniseries Pride and Prejudice - delightful!
I have watched Emma(which I liked),a little bit of 1776,
&My big fat greek wedding(I thought that was really funny ),Ever-After is a real sweet love movie,and have watched some of Princess Bride,the others I have heard of but never watched.

I can speak to the 'Road' pictures staring comedian Bob Hope, baritone crooner Bing Crosby, and the beautiful star Dorothy Lamour. There were seven of these musical-comedies dating from 1940 into the early '60s. They were, and still are, fun pictures where these to guys vie for the girl in their travels is some far land like Zanzibar, Bali, Singapore, etc. I think they were mostly in black and white, but many of the later ones were in color. Believe it or not, Bob Hope just celebrated his 100th birthday.
As to your original question, ElijiahLover, I have seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Ever After, and The Princess Bride.
I liked MBFGW a lot.
I also liked Ever After a lot too just because I like movies that do not take place in the modern days and have good costumes.
I liked The Princess Bride for the same reason. Only I hated the love parts in both movies.
