The Princess Bride
A comic fairy tale, concocted by William Goldman, that is civilized, whimsical and modestly clever. What the picture lacks is the exuberance of, say, Danny Kaye's "The Court Jester," which is also both a send-up of medieval costume dramas and an entertaining imitation of one. 98 minutes.
PG parental guidance suggested.
