official description

This sincerely whimsical send-up of classic fairy tales follows Buttercup and Wesley as they battle pirates, sea monsters and an evil prince. Along the way they’re joined by a flamboyant Spaniard, his slow-witted giant friend and a burned-out wizard named Miracle Max (a hilarious performance by Billy Crystal). As Peter Falk says in the opening sequences, “fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles”; this film has it all. A fondly remembered film of many a childhood, The Princess Bride is a veritable movie monument to the enduring charms of children’s fantasy literature.
