Cast & Crew
Rob Reiner's friendly 1987 fairy-tale adventure delicately mines the irony inherent in its make-believe without ever undermining the effectiveness of the fantasy.
Since its release more than 15 years ago, The Princess Bride has often been copied, but never equaled.
This material might easily have lent itself to broad parody or become too cute for its own good. But Mr. Reiner presents it as a bedtime story, pure and simple.
Bride achieves much more than most film comedies.
It's a lively, fun-loving, but nevertheless epic look at the nature of true love.
It is filled with good-hearted fun.
