The '80s film The Princess Bride turns 28 years young today! How old are we again?!

The film, starring Cary Elwes and Robin Wright, opened in theaters on Sept. 25, 1987. Although not initially a crowd-pleaser, the film became an unforgettable cult classic over the last two (almost three!) decades.

In the spirit of celebration, we're checking in on the stars who played our favorite characters to see how where they are today. So grab your true love and walk down memory lane with us!
