The Princess Bride Cast is Reuniting and Ted Cruz is Not Happy

The remaining cast of the best movie in the world, “The Princess Bride” is returning to raise money for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin and Ted Cruz is not happy.  I mean, I’m happy that they’re reuniting and I love cast reads.

That said, if you donate to the Wisconsin Democrats, you’ll get an invitation to see the livestream next week, September 13th, at 7 pm.   If you’re a fan of the movie and love the cast: Carol Kane, Chris Sarandon, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, well, you’ll be happy.

It turns out though that Ted Cruz is a humungous fan of The Princess Bride and even quotes it frequently.  So he’s not that happy that it’s being used as a fundraiser.

Ted Cruz just tweeted:

This tweet got replies from Cary Elwes, the star of the film:
“…if you only left the fire swamp you could join us…”


Even Nick Offerman replied:

The simpering half-beard weighs in on comedy


It’s bad enough to be pissed about the fundraiser, but now to have your favorite movie characters blast you is a bit much.

It is my favorite movie and I would love to watch it if I could, but until then, it’s great watching the new twitter war with my favorite stars.
