Instead of saying The Princess Bride is likely my all-time favorite movie, I’ll just say that my oldest son’s middle name is Westley and my youngest son’s name is Max. So, it’s with great joy I tell you about the release of Princess Bride: 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray. In addition to the classic comedy flick, the new release boasts tons of bonus features, like audio commentary from director Rob Reiner and William Goldman, who wrote the book on which the movie is based. There’s also a Cary Elwes video diary, a behind-the-scenes look at the makeup artists hard at work, a trio of featurettes and much more!

To get you properly pumped, we have this exclusive clip from the bonus features. In it, Billy Crystal talks about how he was cast as the now iconic Miracle Max. Check it out!
