The tale is based on a satirical novel by William Goldman. The film begins with a grandfather reading the story to his sick grandson, and as Goldman said: the grandfather is only retelling the "good parts" of the supposed historical tale. If you haven't read the book, but love the movie, I seriously recommend you sit down to read as soon as possible.
This film is perfect for all people who enjoy a good laugh, and an even better romance. I have been watching The Princess Bride since I was 6 years old, and every time I watch it I learn something new about the story, the characters, or even the technical aspects involved. It is truly a story that will stand the test of time. This movie is considered a classic and to some people the greatest movie of all time. I think that it is quite a good movie but would not go as far as that. What the Princess Bride is is a fairy tale designed to capture the hearts and fantasies of those who watch it, and this movie succeeds in what it sets out to do, but to understand what the Princess Bride really is, one must look at its origins because, unlike most films, it has a very strange origin indeed, and in fact until the film was made, it was incredibly obscure. But before I discuss this, I will run through the plot.
The Princess Bride is one of the most brilliant romantic comedies of all time. It is carefully constructed to fill so many film genres, including: romance, fairy tale, satire, comedy, and adventure. This film features an all star cast, who collaborated on every aspect of the film. The actors brought so much to their characters, creating well rounded personalities from even the most grotesque caricatures.
Once I had the flu, and I hurt all over so badly I couldn't sleep. I was trapped on the living room couch, wondering if I'd ever recover, and the only thing that made me feel better was "The Princess Bride." I think I watched it five times that night. That was about 10 years ago, but even today I can't watch just a little of it without watching the whole thing, and I can't watch any of it without smiling. It does an end run around my pessimism and cynicism and gets right at the uncorruptible romantic inside me.
