The Princess Bride
1987
 
In this enchantingly cracked fairy tale, the beautiful Princess Buttercup (Robin Wright Penn) and the dashing Westley (Cary Elwes) must overcome staggering odds to find happiness amid six-fingered swordsmen (Christopher Guest), murderous princes (Chris Sarandon), Sicilians (Wallace Shawn) and rodents of unusual size. But even death can't stop these true lovebirds from triumphing. Fred Savage and Peter Falk co-star.

Goldman's take on absurd fantasy has become a cultural rite of passage for American children growing up in the eighties. Sword fights, giants, adventure, torture, pirates, and the occasional kiss make up this timeless classic.

You know exactly why you love this movie: it is endlessly quotable. But besides that, it's just an entertaining, funny story.
 
In my top five all time favorite movies--full of humor, romance and swashbuckling fun. Mandy Patinkin is a standout, but no one disappoints. Great script, great tongue-in-cheek acting. Highly recommended.
 
Regardless of the title, this movie is not really about princesses or brides. A humorous and irreverent adventure with colorful characters and a great script.
