Here at last is a film that tells the truth - most of us hate the soppy bits in adventure films! Who doesn't want to skip past the good-hearted hero and perky princess to the cunning villain and hero's entertaining sidekicks? The Princess Bride takes apart the traditional damsel-in-distress story and puts it back together again, complete with a friendly giant, a dreaded pirate captain, a dashing swordsman seeking revenge, a cowardly prince and - eventually! - a brave hero and the beautiful maiden, in a film that quickly became thought of as a classic for kids of all ages - and for adults too!

    I thought it was going to be all about Princesses and for girls but it is really good. It is exciting and there is lots of adventures in it. It is funny too.

    As girly as you think it sounds , this film was very perky - linking to the phrase 'you shouldn't judge a book by its cover!'. The characters were quirky and extremely honest , which I found gave the movie a uniqueness to it that I haven't seen in a while . There was a slight confusion with some scenes as (I'm trying to not give anything away) somehow Inigo Montoya ,(unsure if that's spelled right), somehow gained knowledge of who killed his father without seeing him or being told on screen. Also , there were some conveniently placed branches and horses that made me laugh! The fighting was very friendly too , some of the fight scenes were very strategical which you don't see a lot.
    My overall thoughts: the movie was a light - hearted pleasure and a roller coaster ride through adventure . I'd recommend this to giants , spaniards and brides to be!!

    I disliked this film because it had a lot of kissing in it. I also disliked this film because it had so much fighting. I think this film is for girly girls because of all the romance.
