Happy Birthday, Rob Reiner!

Today we're celebrating the 65th birthday of director Rob Reiner. The son of Carl Reiner, Rob got his start as an actor in a string of television roles, he has truly gained prominence as a feature film director. He started directing in 1974, releasing the made-for-TV movie Sonny Boy, but it wasn't until 1984 that he directed his first theatrically-released film, This Is Spinal Tap. From there, Reiner helmed some of the more iconic films of the late 1980s and early 1990s, including 1986's Stand by Me, 1987's The Princess Bride, 1989's When Harry Met Sally... and 1992's A Few Good Men. He has worked relatively sparingly in the 2000s, but he has managed to craft a few films in recent years. Most recently, audiences have seen his work in 2010's Flipped, and they'll next be able to see a Reiner film in 2012's The Magic of Belle Isle. And so, to celebrate his birthday, I've created a list of my favorite Rob Reiner films. I hope you enjoy it! Once again, happy birthday, Rob!
