At a party at my mother's house to celebrate the upcoming wedding, one of my uncles pulled my soon-to-be-husband and I aside and proceeded to explain to him that all he needed to know to have a good marriage were three words. "I love you?" my husband asked. "No," said my uncle. "As you wish."
I guess it's similar to the sentiment of "happy wife, happy life" but I much prefer Westley's famous line when summing up the key to a successful partnership. Sometimes, as a joke of course, my husband will utter these words to me, especially when I'm being particularly demanding.
Cary Elwes's book is a delightful light read for die-hard Princess Bride fans. While there aren't really any good juicy behind-the-scenes details in the book other than a hinted relationship between Cary and Robin Wright, there are some sweet memories that Cary shares that are worth reading about if you were ever a big fan of his or of the movie.
It is clear from his sentiments that Elwes is very aware that he wouldn't be where he is today without the movie and I found it endearing how appreciative he is of the opportunity he was given and of the intense loyalty of his legions of fans. Perhaps there is hope that one day Robert Pattinson will look back on his role in Twilight and realize what a lucky bastard he was to get that that opportunity and write a sacchirine memoir recounting his time filming the movies.
I won't hold my breath.
