Import from The Netherlands with English soundtrack
Princess Bride , the " Shrek the 80 ' ... A comedy tale of high quality. The movie tells a classic tale full of quips and can be seen simultaneously as a parody of such tales . The men of Monty Python might have also done so , but topregisseur Rob Reiner ( A Few Good Men , Misery , When Harry Met Sally , This Is Spinal Tap , Stand By Me ) did it in 1987 as a producer / director in spectacular fashion itself . The film made together including NeverEnding Story, Willow , and a revival of the fantasy genre in Belgium and the Netherlands . Princess Bride stands in contrast to most other titles from that time ever standing as a surprisingly fresh film . Reiners best friend Billy Crystal , Peter Falk , Robin Wright , Cary Elwes , Fred Savage , Mandy Patinkin , Chris Sarandon , Carol Kane , and Mel Smith were part of the cast . The music is mostly by Mark Knopfler also written by Willy De Ville and sung theme Storybook Love arranged . A charming grandfather tells his grandson to his bed a fairy tale for generations in the family has been passed . While grandfather ( Falk ) tells the story in the film comes to life . The classic story of a beautiful girl who is kidnapped and against her will with an evil nature to marry ; her handsome childhood friend knows , however, to thwart it. nefarious plans In addition, he is assisted by a highly skilled swordsman and-of course - a good , dommige reus.De film is based on a book that William Goldman wrote in the early seventies . He was also responsible for the script of the film.

I loved this movie when it came out and I love it now - it's lost none of it's charm and I find it just as funny now as back then.
Part of the success is a superb cast. Carey Elwes is underrated - he is a great comedic actor and also a very versatile character actor. He is sharp and on the ball in this movie - his delivery spot on.
BUT - even so, Mandy Patinkin steals the shows with his wonderful performance.
This movie has such a huge personality and you can tell everyone had great fun making it. They don't make them like this any more, sadly.
Do yourself a favour - buy a copy of this absolute honey of a movie. It has everything to offer and won't fail to charm and cheer.
Just perfect.

This is what all those films claiming to be 'fun for all the family' should keep in mind when using that phrase. The story is a simple fairy tale of evil princes and beautiful princesses (but wait it gets better) and dashing heroes doing good and saving the day. Kids will lap it up.
Whats here for the adults is a wicked sense of humour which subverts our preconceptions of films of this ilk and the greatest sword fight in the history of movies ever, ever, ever (even recent Star Wars movies have tried to emulate this). Some of the one liners and catchphrases will stick with you for ages and it almost becomes like a secret code amongst those who have seen it (I myself have started a cult that meets at midnight wearing black masks and screams 'boooo').
This really is fun long after daddy takes the T-Bird away, it has the charm of an Errol Flynn matinee and the humour of a very funny thing. If you have kids you'll love them to see it and if you don't have kids this will be one of the first movies you'll want to show them when you have them. Actually, scratch all that, see this movie.

The Princess Bride is the best fairytale film so far produced. The 1987 film is based on the book The Princess Bride by William Goldman. It is an absolutely terrific film experience combining the action of a fairytale with the wittiest dialogue in film history. There is something for absolutely everyone in Princess Bride - adventure for the younger viewers, a swordfight scene the equal of any other, and banterous wordplay to have adults in hysterics.

The plot of Princess Bride is designed to be simple. It is a fairytale. True love between future princess Buttercup and stablelad Westley is interrupted when he leaves to seek funds for their marriage but disappears, presumably captured by the Dread Pirate Roberts. The early scenes are incredibly mushy with soft focus and soft lighting emphasising the cheese along with the limited dialogue and longing gazes. As a piece of satire it is spot on. As a contrast to everything that comes next it is retrospectively hilarious.

The action really kicks into gear when Buttercup is kidnapped. Her captors are a band of villains led by Vizzini the Sicilian. The kidnappers are sowing the seeds for war between the two rival kingdoms of Florin and Guilder. More importantly they generate terrific banter. The physical differences between the three is the stuff of fairytale but the dialogue is absolutely cutting. Being the smartest guy around Vizzini perpetually demeans his compadres though they give nearly as good as they get. The two other members of the villain crew are Fezzik played by the legendary Andre the Giant and Inigo Montoya played by Mandy Patinkin.

Format: DVD
Westley (played by Cary Elwes) and Buttercup (Robin Wright Penn) have that rare and wonderful gift, true love. But, when Westley is captured by the Dread Pirate Roberts, who leaves no prisoner alive, Buttercup must go on with her life as best she can. However, her life becomes quite complex when, in short order, she gets engaged to a prince, gets kidnapped by a group of outlaws, and is pursued by a mysterious man in black. What will become of Buttercup, and can true love really conquer all? [Color, released in 1987, with a running time of 1:38.]
This is a great movie! Though it didn't do very well at the box-office, this is a great movie that has done very well in home viewing, and it's easy to see why. This is a family-friendly movie, moving back and forth from humor to action and back again in a great manner. Now, there is some violence in this movie, including the burning and stabbing of a giant rodent, and the stabbing of a villain, so you might want to be ready if you have younger or more sensitive viewers in your home.
But, that said, this is a great movie that my family and I enjoy immensely. (By the way, there is no nudity in this movie.) If you are looking for a movie with humor, action, adventure and romance, then this is the movie for you! My family and I give it our highest recommendations.

If you are about to propose marriage to someone, ask them what they think of the Princess Bride. If they say they dont like after having watched it, then they rate among the people who didn't like Star Wars (the originals that is)
This film is not to be revered for its fairy tale setting, more for its razor sharp with which cuts through the tale like a grinning cat's claws through the tail of a tattered mouse.
Cary Elwes gives a stunning performance, and there are appearences from people like the late Andre the Giant and Billy Crystal. But this is not adding celebrities to boost ratings. on the contrary, this film was made before these people were famous.
However, I cannot stand in the way of you and a fine piece of film-making. Buy it! you will not be dissappointed.
