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.
