Reel Film Reviews's ultimately not difficult to see why The Princess Bride has become something of a classic in the years since its 1987 release.

...somehow spoofs the conventions of fantasy romance without teetering into irony.

In spirit The Princess Bride recalls The Neverending Story, which also was about a contemporary boy`s fantastic adventure. Reiner's film is likely to please adults more than kids and to last in memory more than most films this fall.

Patinkin, the most dazzling movie swordsman since Errol Flynn, steals the movie with his athletic grace and delivery of lines like: "My name is Inigo Montoya! Prepare to die!"

Mandy Patinkin, as Inigo Montoya, deserves special mention. Inigo is the one character in the film who contains real emotional depth, and Patinkin plumbs it.

Patinkin's performance is especially touching. He can say, "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die" -- and make you laugh, cry and cheer at the same time. The movie, two hours of pure enchantment, has the same effect.

For parents who have felt as if they were approaching the Cliffs of Insanity while enduring the inanities of standard kiddie pictures, The Princess Bride may be a godsend.

Heroic fantasies, we often feel, should be lighter than air, hot as dragon fire, fast as a sword in sunlight. And that's mostly what we get from the delightful The Princess Bride -- along with some bracing humor and foolery.

Action and laughs blend deliciously in this fairy-tale spoof about true lovers who must defeat all sorts of villains to reach true happiness.

The film works well enough, providing its fair share of laughs and thrills, and in technical terms it is by far Reiner`s most professional job of direction.

A witty, even clever-clever, exercise in deconstructing fairytales that became something of a cult with fans of its ironic/comic charms.

Antagony & Ecstasy

An inordinately smart and sly motion picture, one that has enough simple pleasures to succeed as one of the better popcorn movies of its decade.

There is so much to latch onto in this movie, so much for each member of a family that watches it together to love.

Slant Magazine

A film of remarkable forwardness, honesty, and humor, built, like all fairy tales, around one message, summed up late in the script: "True love is the greatest thing in the world."

Emanuel Levy

One of Reiner's most entertaining films, effective as a swashbuckling epic, romantic fable, and satire of these genres.
