The Princess Bride

(1987)

Heroes, giants, villains, wizards, true love.

Rob Reiner's (Stand By Me) 1987 tongue-in-cheek fairy tale, littered with adventure, romance and rodents of unusual size. Stars Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Fred Savage, Billy Crystal and the late André the Giant.... More

With a bed-ridden grandson (Savage) to entertain, a good-natured grandfather (Peter Falk) tells the tale of The Princess Bride: a classic story of true love shared between the gorgeous Buttercup (Wright) and the noble Westley (Elwes), posing as the Dread Pirate Roberts. With Buttercup unwillingly engaged to Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon), Westley must quest forth to save his love from an unruly marriage.Hide

  • Might easily have lent itself to broad parody or become too cute for its own good. But Mr. Reiner presents it as a bedtime story, pure and simple. Full Review

  • A post-modern fairy tale that challenges and affirms the conventions of a genre that may not be flexible enough to support such horseplay. Full Review
