I don't remember now when I first saw The Princess Bride. I do remember wanting to see the movie after seeing the trailers when the movie first came out. I'm not sure when I first saw the movie, but I have seen it many times and I love it.
The plot is very entertaining, telling what I consider a fairytale story. It has things set up like a grandfather is reading the story to his sick grandson. They pop up every so often throughout the movie. That works for what is going on. The characters and situations are interesting and make for an interesting movie. The cast all fit their parts really well. Some parts of the story are predictable, but that doesn't keep the movie from being very entertaining overall. The movie is definitely worth watching.
I got the movie on DVD several years ago. Since then, one or two new DVD versions have been released with new extras. My version does have a few extras on it that are entertaining.
I recently got a longer review posted on Epinions.
