Siblings can watch @Netflix_ca together! #StreamTeam

Finding something my 2 siblings will watch together is becoming increasingly challenging. On one hand, my 11 year-old daughter Rachel loves action, drama, teen fun, and adventure. She is beyond the cartoon phase. On the other hand, my 9 year-old daughter Lauren is all about cartoons, princesses, and all things pink.
They are often able to find something they both like to watch on Netflix, but sometimes, it can be a challenge. Their preferences for shows are pretty far apart, but there is some overlap.
Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya.
One of the movies we found on Netflix that had some overlap, and is a personal favourite of mine and Wendy’s as well, is The Princess Bride.
“Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Revenge. Giants. Monsters. Chases. Escapes. True love. Miracles.”
This Rob Reiner classic from 1987 is a great movie. It has action for Rachel, a Princess for Lauren, a love story for Wendy, and Andre The Giant is in the movie – I’m a big wrestling fan.
