Heroes, giants, villains, wizards, true love
When the one true love of her life is killed by the Dread Pirate Roberts, Buttercup blindly agrees to marry Prince Humperdinck. But the Prince is planning to incite war between his country and its neighbour…It's a fairytale with bite. Children can see it as a bright, frothy adventure while adults will appreciate the subtlety and the sheer wit. The film mocks sword fantasies yet it also delights in them and is somehow able to trumpet the genre while simultaneously laughing at it. A rich, all-engrossing treat. --BBCi

A delightfully postmodern fairy tale, this is a deft, intelligent mix of swashbuckling, romance, and comedy that takes an age-old damsel-in-distress story and makes it fresh.Cast Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Christopher Guest, Robin Wright, André the Giant, Wallace Shawn, and Peter Falk
