The Princess Bride by William GoldmanWhat happens when the most beautiful girl in the world marries the handsomest prince of all time and he turns out to be...well...a lot less than the man of her dreams?
As a boy, William Goldman claims, he loved to hear his father read the S. Morgenstern classic, The Princess Bride. But as a grown-up he discovered that the boring parts were left out of good old Dads recitation, and only the good parts reached his ears.
Now Goldman does Dad one better. Hes reconstructed the Good Parts Version to delight wise kids and wide-eyed grownups everywhere.
Whats it about? Fencing. Fighting. True Love. Strong Hate. Harsh Revenge. A Few Giants. Lots of Bad Men. Lots of Good Men. Five or Six Beautiful Women. Beasties Monstrous and Gentle. Some Swell Escapes and Captures. Death, Lies, Truth, Miracles, and a Little Sex.
In short, its about everything.
My favourite film: The Princess Bride
Sign in. The star of " The Boys " has a great Watchlist that she can't stop re-watching. Watch now. Title: The Princess Bride A group of young misfits who call themselves The Goonies discover an ancient map and set out on a quest to find a legendary pirate's long-lost treasure. A kindhearted street urchin and a power-hungry Grand Vizier vie for a magic lamp that has the power to make their deepest wishes come true.
Here is a full-length fairy tale full of fanciful characters, madcap adventures and a lot of other things surely not to every taste.

Some fans are not impressed that the popular film may be remade.
A fairy tale adventure about a beautiful young woman and her one true love., It would be a pity to damage this one.
Bizarrely, that's an ideal state for a tale which begins with a grandfather determined to read a proper story to a similarly sickly boy. At first glance an opening scene of a child playing a computer game and the entrance of Peter Falk , looking inescapably like Columbo, even without the cigar and overcoat, does not bode well. One's own scepticism at what is to come is mirrored by the boy's uncertainty over the prospect of his grandfather reading from a book. It has "fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles …". It's an enchanting land of silly names and sillier dialogue and sillier-still cameos. But all this silliness is underscored by soaring themes — true love, ultimate suffering and the all conquering power of friendship — not to mention a score by Mark Knopfler that punctuates the climaxes with perfect comic timing. The plot is a fairytale with a twist.
