Watched it before years back and took it out again not recognizing that I saw the movie before. The first 1 minute of the movie I remembered it but still continued to watch it as it was a decent movie. It is more geared towards children then adults but all ages could enjoy the movie.

A good movie if you like romance.
you'll pee your pants caus it was SSSOOO funny!

The epitome of fairy-tale camp; silly, funny, well paced, with surprising plot changes and always entertaining.

This is the story of a young farm boy who gets split apart from his true love. He must overcome many obstacles on his quest to be reunited with this girl. I very much enjoyed this movie. This movie takes you on a huge adventure and is full of different events. You overtime learn more about the characters and watch them develop into better people. There’s great connection between the cast and you get to watch their character connect with one another. There’s also a lot of funny humor in this movie and entertains you while leaving you on the edge of your seat. Overall great romantic movie and fun to watch with family. 4/5 stars @EffyStonem of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board.

I watch this as often as I wish.
It will always be a timeless film and I will always enjoy watching it.

Cary Elwes is just unforgettable in his performance as the handsome, charming Westley.
The beautiful buttercup played by Robin Wright was his match and they had a beautiful, genuine romance.

Wonderfully sweet and hilarious story that both pays homage and takes the mickey out of fairytales, The Princess Bride is without fail the best book to screen adaptation I've ever seen.

"As you wish" is that not the best declaration of love and devotion. The movie has plenty of these gems sprinkled throughout and you end up feeling very happy at the end.

This is a film for kids, a very simplistic good vs evil fairytale with swords and blood, people die but if they are the Good Guys they somehow come back to life. I enjoyed seeing Andre the Giant, a French Canadian wrestler, in an acting role.

There's a thin comedic line between endearingly goofy and farce. The Princess Bride director, writers, and actors tip-toed right up to the chasm of certain disaster, and yet somehow pulled it off. Miraculous.

Vizzini: We were told that there was a town nearby that would appreciate our preforming talents.
Buttercup: You were misinformed. There's no one around here for miles.
Vizzini: Then there will be no one to hear you scream.

Can farmer boy Wesley win back his true love, the stunningly beautiful Buttercup, from the evil plans of crafty Prince Humperdink? He'll need more than an army of trained solidiers for this job-the likes of which include a blood-thirsty bandit, a not-so-smart giant, and a spirited old miracle man. 11+ because of some thematic events, violence including blood, stabbing, fire, biting, blood-curdling screams, sword slices. There is also one mention of the word "son of a b-tch" (I don;t know if there is other language around those lines; I just advise caution).

A kindly grandfather sits down with his grandson and reads him a bedtime story. The story is one that has been passed down from father to son for generations. As the grandfather reads the story, the action comes alive. The story is a classic tale of love and adventure as the beautiful Buttercup, engaged to the odious Prince Humperdinck, is kidnapped and held against her will in order to start a war, It is up to Westley (her childhood beau, now returned as the Dread Pirate Roberts) to save her. On the way he meets a thief and his hired helpers, an accomplished swordsman and a huge, super strong giant, both of whom become Westleys' companions in his quest.
