4. THE PRINCESS BRIDE
“As you wish”
After Westley’s one true love — Buttercup — is nabbed by Prince Humperdink, he sets out to rescue her. It’s your typical fairytale framework: sword fights, royals, dungeons, and wizards all factor into this 1987 flick. But it’s Westley’s tenacity in the face of endless difficulty and his sheer will to rescue the woman he loves that bumps “The Princess Bride” toward the top of our list. As you wish, indeed.
