Rob Reiner is a gifted film-maker in a special sense: fans didn't love the way he made movies, they simply loved the movies he made. Whether for comedy, drama, suspense and fantasy, he never used a specific trick or trademark of his own, he simply made memorable, quotable and enjoyable movies.

In homage to the much underrated Rob Reiner, which of his theatrically released movies is your personal favorite?

ElM,

My vote:
The Princess Bride (1987)

Strange coincidence: I saw this thread while watching Rob Reiner being interviewed.

FYI: This Is Spinal Tap (1984) is rated 8.0/11 on IMDb.

I was going to go for "Most Quotable Film" but then I simply realized there hasn't been any poll dedicated to him. Surely, he's far from his winning streak from 1984 to 1995, but he's made enough classics to deserve a tribute poll.

'Probably Harry Met Sally or Stand By Me

Oh, ElMo, are you going to provide a quote for each movie?

I don't think I will... the quotes you see on the page are just the remains on the initial list that centered on quotes but I just didn't have the heart to remove them... I'm still convinced that "favorite quote from a Rob Reiner film" would make a good poll :)

I agree: that sounds like that would make for a good one.

I hae seen six of his films, but A Few Good Men is in another level. I have never understand why Stand By Me and Princess Bride are so popular.

A movie watcher is more likely to appreciate Stand by Me if he/she values "coming of age" material in general; perhaps the contrary if otherwise. As for Princess Bride, it just sort of hits all the right chords in a lot of audiences' minds, as an awesome blend of drama, comedy, stunts and majesty, with subtle fantasy elements.

It's interesting that, despite fantasy genre has a lot of fans in Post-Soviet countries I've never seen The Princess Bride on television or haven't even heard anyone talking about it!
