The Princess Bride Reviews

When you combine snappy dialogue with rollicking adventure-and you balance a real sense of wonder with a winking sense of humor- you get that rare picture that has it all.

Both celebrating and spoofing fantasy adventures conventions, the high energy swashbuckler is full of tongue-in-cheek humor that only enhances the fun.

a charming and utterly disarming swashbuckling fairy tale that is also a smart, funny satire of swashbuckling fairy tales

Lacking the commentaries and home video footage that graced previous The Princess Bride DVD releases, and short any comment from Reiner or Goldman, this pedestrian set hardly excites.

I wasn't wowed when it came out theatrically in 1987, and seeing it again 19 years later hasn't changed my opinion.

Mandy Patinkin calls it The Wizard of Oz of our generation, and that's not an inconceivable way to describe it.

It's the ultimate cracked fairy tale, blending true love, edge-of-your-seat action, and clever humor into a timeless movie that just gets better every time you watch it.
