A few funny moments but crappy movie. I know I'm not in the majority but I really didn't like it.
I bought this movie on VHS as a teenager and have watched it so many times that the tape is pretty much worn out now. I have made no secret about wanting the special edition DVD for Christmas/birthday.
This movie is one of those classics that everyone loves! It's narrated by a grandfather reading the book "The Princess Bride" to his grandson, and I'll let this choice quote from the movie sum it up for you:
The Grandson: Has it got any sports in it?
Grandpa: Are you kidding? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...
The Grandson: Doesn't sound too bad. I'll try to stay awake.
Grandpa: Oh, well, thank you very much, very nice of you. Your vote of confidence is overwhelming.
If you have not seen this movie yet, go out and rent/buy/steal it right away! It's a great addition to anyone's DVD library.
