In this enchantingly cracked fairy tale, the beautiful Princess Buttercup and the dashing Westley must overcome staggering odds to find happiness amid six-fingered swordsmen, murderous princes, Sicilians and rodents of unusual size. But even death can't stop these true lovebirds from triumphing. (source: TMDb)
Robin Wright is perfectly radiant here and reason enough to watch. The rest of the cast are great as well, even Andre the Giant. The repetitive parts of the script get a little old, however, and there's one scene with Billy Crystal which is almost one scene too many. But the romance at the center of the story keeps you entranced and the overall effect is almost magical. Easy to see why it is a cult favorite.
This book is amazing! I remembered my older brother saying he didn't like it much, but I really wanted to see why he didn't, so I started listening to it.
The movie is almost exactly the plot of the book.
For starters, this version of The Princess Bride is abridged. All versions by William Goldman are. This was originally a political satire, and, if I'm remembering the prologue correctly, the story that we all know and love was nearly lost in the political jokes. So this is the plot, the whole plot, and nothing but the plot. Yay!
It made me smile every time I heard a line that had been used in the movie. Literally, a lot of the dialogue in the movie was in the book. The only major difference was the ending...
There is no real ending. That's all I'll say. But really, there is no ending. It just... ends.
Still. That lets you think up your own ending, and I'll say I just pictured the scene from the end of the movie.
This book is definitely going on my favorite book list!
Having never seen this until my late twenties, I can vouch that this is a movie that holds up even without nostalgia glasses. Everything in this film is delightful -- even the dated effects have their particular charm -- and it will stay one of my favourites for the rest of my life.
An elderly man reads the book "The Princess Bride" to his sick and thus currently bedridden adolescent grandson, the reading of the book which has been passed down within the family for generations. The grandson is sure he won't like the story, with a romance at its core, he preferring something with lots of action and "no kissing". But the grandson is powerless to stop his grandfather, whose feelings he doesn't want to hurt. The story centers on Buttercup, a former farm girl who has been chosen as the princess bride to Prince Humperdinck of Florian. Buttercup does not love him, she who still laments the death of her one true love, Westley, five years ago. Westley was a hired hand on the farm, his stock answer of "as you wish" to any request she made of him which she came to understand was his way of saying that he loved her. But Westley went away to sea, only to be killed by the Dread Pirate Roberts. On a horse ride to clear her mind of her upcoming predicament of marriage, Buttercup... Written by Huggo

A kindly grandfather sits down with his grandson and reads him a bedtime story. As the grandfather reads the story, the action comes alive in a classic tale of love and adventure. The beautiful Buttercup is kidnapped and held against her will in order to marry the nasty Prince Humperdinck, while Westley (her childhood beau, now returned as the Dread Pirate Roberts) attempts to save her. Along the way he meets an accomplished swordsman and a giant, both of whom become his companions in his quest.
