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.

Customer Reviews of Princess Bride (Blu-ray)
Great fairy tale spoof5/25/2012
I remeber watching this as a child about two or three years after it came out and ever since then it has stuck with me. I find though, that people who don't like it, simply don't GET it! The Princess Bride is a movie version of a book, which is clearly making fun of the entire fairytale idea. The movie is the same. This was never supposed to be a 'sophisticated' faiytale like 'Ever After', this movie is clearly spoofing the fairytale theme. And boy does it! It's so randomly funny at times "anybody want a peanut?", that the random humour just makes you giggle. If you like spoofs then you'll love this, probably the only good spoof movie with great acting, as a child I totally fell in love with it!
