Days before his death, Carl Reiner gave one more masterful performance — one which many of us will remember until the end of time. As with dozens of other Hollywood A-listers, Reiner paired with his son Rob to serve as the endcap to Jason Reitman's The Princess Bridge fan-film on Quibi. As you might expect, the moment in question is leaving fans of both Reiner and the classic film in tears.
In Reitman's take on the feature, Rob — the filmmaker who directed the original feature — stepped into Fred Savage's role as the grandson while Carl played the grandpa and narrator of the film. The movie's final moments led Carl to give a heartbreaking "as you wish," as he walked out the door.

@robreiner just wanted to tell you, I watched the Quibi video of your quarantine remake of THE PRINCESS BRIDE. I have never watched anything that made me both laugh so hard and, at the end, made me weep so.
Thank you to you, your dad, and everyone who participated. ❤️— Andrea Thompson (@Ldyandrea) July 11, 2020
