The Princess Bride is the acting-out of a fairy tale read to a sick boy (Fred Savage) by his Grandfather (Peter Falk). Essentially it tells the tale of two separated lovers kept apart first by circumstance and second by an evil prince (Chris Sarandon) and his right hand torture expert ally Count Rugen (Christopher Guest), but despite its strong love story it is really an excuse to have fun with weird character roles and heroic situations.
