Summary
This comedy film combines medieval romance, swashbuckling adventure and satire. In a modern-day vignette, a grandfather tells his resistant 10-year-old grandson the story of The Princess bride. The viewer is transported to the medieval make-believe land of Florin where the flaxen-haired beauty, Buttercup, loves her handsome servant boy, Westley. Seeking his fortune across the sea, Westley promises to return, but word arrives that he has been killed by the Dread Pirate Roberts. Buttercup is betrothed to Prince Humperdinck, the ruler of Florin, but is kidnapped by Sicilian mercenaries. After perilous adventures, the lovers are reunited.
