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 is kidnapped by a band of bandits: Vizzini who works on his wits, and his two associates, a giant named Fezzik who works on his brawn, and a Spaniard named Inigo Montoya, who has trained himself his entire life to be an expert swordsman. They in turn are chased by the Dread Pirate Roberts himself. But chasing them all is the Prince, and his men led by Count Tyrone Rugen.

The characters, the music, the storyline, the costumes, the set and the fairytale adventure. This reminds you that cinema does not have to be fancy or over the top with intricate storylines and confusing subtext. The Princess Bride is true in its presentation and does not deviate from pure bliss and simplicity. I can never grow tired of watching this film.
And I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed the movie. It had the right amount of comedy and action and highly recommend it to all.

...ok... now that you’re back let’s agree some things:
1. This film is amazing. It’s hilarious, it’s action packed, it’s clever, it’s family friendly, and it’s touching.
2. The theme tune for this film is amazing. A song that will be strumming through your brain for years to come.
3. The title sucks - and I believe that’s why more people I speak to don’t know about this film. They think it’s a pink girly film when in fact it’s actually a Piratey, action, adventure film!
4. The quality of this transfer to Blu-Ray is superb. It’s crystal clear in both visual and audio. Probably the best way you’ll ever see this film.
Seriously, if you haven’t seen this film already go and watch it now! Get past the title and you will find one of the finest movies ever made.
Not to mention a 7'4" wrestler who has a skill for rhyming.
One of my favourite of all times, and exactly the antidote that you need to whats happening in the outside world at the minute.
The only thing that dates this film is the video game at the beginning and the ROUS (Rodents of Unusual Size).
Having just listened to the audiobook of the making of the film, the stories behind the story make it even more enjoyable.
Good Bluray edition with bonys extras. The picture is still a little grainy, but in some ways that makes it a bit better.
The film is a lovely alternative to action packed superhero fantasies produced on a huge budget. It relies on the magic of the story and the performances of the cast. Also worth mentioning is the rather enchanting music. Really enjoyable film for all ages.
The DVD I bought has no subtitles. However, none were promised in the product description and the sound quality is good, so it's not a problem. Other releases may have subtitles and it may be worth while looking at the various buying options.
