Anybody Want A Peanut?

There is nothing in this world more hilariously romantic than "twu wuv" served with a side order of sweet revenge. The Princess Bride forever retains its watch-again-and-again status with its perfect combination of sweet romance and fumbly adventure. The Princess Bride has everything: An intelligent princess doomed to an Anne Boleyn-style marriage to a narcissistic prince; A farm boy with a heart of gold; A handsome Spanish swordsman with a giant chip on his shoulder; A good-natured rhyming giant. All of these elements come together to tell a tale of "incontheivable" true love that triumphs all; it's so good that even smooch-hating little boys enjoy the story. The Saint Louis Art Museum (314-721-0072 or www.slam.org) screens the film at 9 p.m. tonight as part of its Art Hill movie series. The food trucks arrive at 7 p.m. along with Kreative Pandemonium, a West African-inspired music and dance group. Admission is free.
