|Once upon a time there was a beautiful maiden named Buttercup who fell in love with her handsome but poor stableboy, Westley. Unfortunately, when Westley set out to seek his fortune at sea, he was captured by an infamous pirate and feared dead. Heartbroken, Buttercup swore to never love again. However, after five years she accepts the marriage proposal of horrible Prince Humperdinck whom she doesn't love, and is forced to live unhappily ever after...just kidding, even death can't stop true love, nor the heroes that come to Buttercup's rescue!|
From director Rob Reiner and two-time Oscar-winning writer William Goldman (Best Original Screenplay, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, 1969; Best Adapted Screenplay, All the President's Men, 1976) comes this fairy tale film. Starring Robin Wright, Cary Elwes, Christopher Guest and Mandy Patinkin, this is the story of dashing heroes, rhyming giants, a beautiful princess and a kindly grandfather who brings to life a magical story for his sick grandson. There's even kissing!

Editor's NoteDirector Rob Reiner breathes vividly colored cinematic life into William Goldman's THE PRINCESS BRIDE, effectively evoking the wondrous, wide-eyed spirit of the witty 1973 novel. When a sick boy (Fred Savage) receives a visit from his doting grandfather (Peter Falk) who intends to read to him from his favorite book, he's not exactly pleased to be extracted from his world of video games. However, his mood quickly changes as he, along with the viewer, is transported to a place out of time--to Florin, a kingdom in the ultimate imaginary land, complete with dashing heroes, cowardly princes, rhyming giants, shrieking eels, rodents of unusual size, fancy swordfights, and yes...even some kissing.The lovely Buttercup (Robin Wright) learns that "As you wish" really means "I love you" when she falls for her charming farmhand, Westley (Cary Elwes). While trying to seek his fortune, however, Westley disappears at sea, an apparent victim of the Dread Pirate Roberts, who takes no prisoners. A few years later, Buttercup, engaged to the oily Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon), is kidnapped by an oddball trio of rogues--brains, Vizzini (Wallace Shawn); brawn, Fezzik (André the Giant); and sword, Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin in a standout performance). As they sail away toward the Cliffs of Insanity, they notice the pursuit of a man in black...and the adventure begins. A clever fairy tale for all ages, THE PRINCESS BRIDE is arguably one of the funniest and most entertaining films of all time.

EIther You Hate It or You Love It6/7/2012
Its aways good to discover something like this on your own one Saturday afternoon on TBS or USA, but in case you've reached adolescence without being exposed to this oeuvre few things can compare to curling up to this movie with a bunch of others and then creating your own inside jokes based off of it. And if you're of the age to drink, this movie pairs nicely with Princess Bride Wine.
Funny and entertaining. One of my favorites and fun to watch over and over
