A young boy in bed with flu is not impressed when his grandfather arrives to read the story of 'The Princess Bride'. It tells of the adventures of Westley and his true love Buttercup in the fairytale kingdom of Florin. When Buttercup is kidnapped Westley has to overcome some pretty tough obstacles if he is to free her from the clutches of her three kidnappers - scaling the cliffs of insanity, battling rodents of unusual size, facing torture in the Pit of Despair...True Love has never been a snap.

    Possibly one of the greatest movies ever! It's an old movie, so pleased to see it here. Watch it (great for all ages!)
  • How to destroy a five star film

    Why are you selling HD for full screen! No one watches HD on old telleys so again but the blue ray about £5 iTunes please listen! Otherwise your digital future in doubt!
  • One of the best movies of all time

  • The source for so many classic lines

    A fantastic film, get the book if you can find a copy - also brilliant. If you fancy a double bill it goes really well with stardust.
  • iTunes extras?

    By Diamond Sounds
    Where are the iTunes extras that the US have had for ages. Come on Lionsgate and Apple. Start giving us faithful UK iTunes customers the same respect as our overseas cousins. You’d make a bigger dent on my bank balance if you did!
  • Brilliant

    By Jemboy73
    I don't know how I missed this film. As an avid 80's film fan this one passed me by at the time. I always wanted to watch it but never did for some reason or another. As another reviewer said, it was recommended by a friend who said " I can't believe you haven't watched it" Great film, great cast and great one-liners. I am sure if I had watched it all those years ago it would be memorised word for word.

    Amazing!! Have watched The Princess Bride so many times over the years and it is definitely in my top 10 favourite movies of all time. Growing up in the eighties, we had the best films... They don't make them like they used to!!
