Sweet and Hokey

The movie, based on the book by William Golding, is a children's film, that is fun for adults too. It's a fairy tale, and the movie works with that theme. The sets are hokey, like out of a play, to make it feel more like a story. The acting is quite good, and the actors who were not well known then, have all gone on to be A-list names. It's sweet, humorous and good for the whole family.

As you wish

Every so often, someone comes up with an idea that's different from everything else that's come so far. A new take on an old idea, with its own new twists and catchphrases that just works. The Princess Bride was one of those movies.

It starts out so simply that at first it's not even obvious what you're seeing. But then, it takes you by surprise. The sense of humor, the acting... read more

"The Princess Bride" is that rare classic that can be enjoyed by all members of the family, regardless of age. It is also a cute, mostly clean comedy that won't bore adults or go over the heads of kids.

In plotline #1, A sick little boy (played by 80's child-star Fred Savage) is presented by his grandfather (Peter O'Toole) with- not an Atari video game, as he no doubt would've ho... read more

Description: When a young boy falls ill, his grandfather pops round to visit him. To cheer his grandson up, Grandpa has brought a storybook; The Princess Bride, a tale of the love between the beautiful Buttercup and the besotted Westley, a love cruelly interrupted by Westley's tragic apparent death at sea when seeking his fortune. Heartbroken, Buttercup has sworn never to love again, but accepts the marriage proposal of the rich and handsome Prince Humperdinck, heir to the throne of Florin; but death is no barrier to true love, and in a story filled with exotically-accented swordsmen, big-hearted giants, genius kidnappers, sadistic torturers ...

" Netflix- 1hr. 38min. First Viewing While I felt the tonal changes were a bit abrupt at times and the story a bit thin, The Princess Bride is still a fun send-up/reappraisal of fairy tale romances that manages to become of the more memorable of the genre.

"22.5. The Princess Bride pistää miettimään, onko IMDB top 250 -projekti hyvä idea. Seikkailumeininkiä on kyllä ja höpsöä itsensä tiedostavaa huumoriakin. Pidin ehkä silti enemmän, kun elokuvaa alkamaan katsoessa olisin uskonut. Kyseessä lienee elokuva, joka olisi pitänyt nähdä skidinä. Nostalgiahuuruisen elokuvaharrastajan vinnkelistä ymmärrän elokuvan överikorkeat pisteet. Leffalla ei silti ole mitään asiaa 250 parhaan listalle."

" Notes: Back in the 80’s, Rob Reiner was one of the most successful directors at work. I mean, just check his track-record, it is quite impressive (‘This Spinal Tap’, ‘The Sure Thing’, ‘Stand by Me’, ‘When Harry Met Sally...’, ‘Misery’, ‘A Few Good Men’). But then, he made ‘North’. Indeed, it was a massive flop, both financially and critically, and it seems that already 20 years later Rob Reiner has still not recovered from the damage. Anyway, this flick was one o"
