Reviews

"THE PRINCESS BRIDE was adapted by William Goldman from his own novel, which he says was inspired by a book he read as a child, but which seems to have been cheerfully transformed by his wicked adult imagination. It is filled with good-hearted fun, with performances by actors who seem to be smacking their lips and by a certain true innocence that
survives all of Reiner's satire.”  

– Roger Ebert

“After 30 years, the wit, fun, charm and idealism are fresher than ever.”
–  Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
