The Princess Bride is a 1987 American fiction adventure comedy movie directed and co-produced by Rob Reiner, starting with Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Chris Sarandon, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn, Christopher Guest, and André the Giant.

Changed by William Goldman from his 1973 novel The Princess Bride, it represents the story of a farmhand called Westley, followed by partners befriended by the way, who obligation rescue his loyal love Princess Buttercup of the offensive Prince Humperdinck.

The movie forever preserves the novel’s fictional style by acting the story as a novel being studied by a grandfather named Peter Falk to his sick grandson name Fred Savage.
The movie was initially released in the United States of America on September 25, 1987, and was well-received by authorities at the time, but was only a modest box office success.

Over time, particularly with the introduction of the Internet, the film has become a cult classic. The movie is figure 50 on Bravo’s “100 Funniest Movies”, numeral 88 on The American Film Institute’s (AFI) “AFI’s 100 Years…100 Passions” record of the 100 most massive film love stories, and 46 in Channel 4’s 50 Most famous Comedy Films list. In 2016, the film was enlisted into the National Film Registry, being considered as “culturally, historically or aesthetically important.”

“When I was your age, television was called books.”

“Nonsense. You’re only saying that because no one ever has.”

“Well, why didn’t you list that among our assets in the first place?”

“Fool!” cried the hunchback. “You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is ‘Never get involved in a land war in Asia,’ but only slightly less well known is this: ‘Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line.”

It was seeing him happily burning and advancing that startled the Brute Squad to screaming. And once that happened, why, everybody panicked and ran…”

“Westley and I are joined by the bond of love and you cannot track that, not with a thousand bloodhounds, and you cannot break it, not with a thousand swords.”

“I love you. Okay? Want it louder? I LOVE YOU. Spell it out, should I? I ell-oh-vee-ee why-oh-you. Want it backward? You love I.”

“I mean if we even had a wheelbarrow, that would be something.”

“Buttercup’s mother hesitated, then put her stew spoon down. (This was after stew, but so is everything. When the first man first clambered from the slime and made his first home on land, what he had for supper that first night was stew.)”

“Anything there is that I can do for you, I will do for you; anything there is that I cannot do, I will learn to do.”

“I don’t guess. I think. I ponder. I deduce. Then I decide. But I never guess.”

“I’ve been in the revenge buisness for so long, now that it’s over I don’t know what to do with the rest of my life.”

“I must know!” “Get used to disappointment.”

“Chapter One. The Bride.” He held up the book then. “I’m reading it to you for relax.” He practically shoved the book in my face. “By S. Morgenstern. Great Florinese writer. The Princess Bride. He too came to America. S. Morgenstern. Dead now in New York. The English is his own. He spoke eight tongues.” Here my father put down the book and held up all his fingers. “Eight. Once in Florin City…”

“You are wonderful, Father.””I’m more than wonderful, how dare you insult me.”

“My heart was now a secret garden and the walls were very high.”

“My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die!”

“You keep using that word!” the Spaniard snapped. “I don’t think it means what you think it does.”

“Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who tells you differently is selling something.”

“Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die,”

“A little maybe; I’ve been saying it so long to you, you just wouldn’t listen. Every time you said, ‘Farm Boy do this’ you thought I was answering ‘As you wish’ but that’s only because you were hearing wrong. ‘I love you’ was what it was, but you never heard, and you never heard.’ ~ Westley”

“We have more than hope,” Buttercup said. “There is true love.”

“True love is the best thing in the world, except for cough drops.”

“I can live without love.” And with that she left Westley alone.”

“Do I love you? My God, if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches.”

“Not so much wonderful as perfect,” she replied. “Kind of flawless. More or less magnificent. Without blemish. Rather on the ideal side.”

“Every night for the next year he always said something like that to me: ‘Thank you for everything, Westley, good night now, I’ll probably kill you in the morning.”

“You’re an enemy of art and I pity your ignorance,”

“But this is life on earth, you can’t have everything.”

“Wide-brimmed and narrow, some tall, some not, some fancy, some colorful, some plaid, some plain. She doted on changing hats at every opportunity. When she met the Prince, she was wearing one hat, when he asked her for a stroll, she excused herself, shortly to return wearing another, equally flattering.”

“Hello . . . my name is Inigo Montoya; you killed my father . . . prepare to die . . . .”

“God grant you your quota of smiles.”

“You mean you’ll put down your rock and I’ll put down my sword and we’ll try to kill each other like civilized people, is that”

“Princess. By S. Morgenstern. It’s a kids’ classic. Tell him I’ll quiz him on it when I’m back next week and that he doesn’t have to like it or anything, but if he doesn’t, tell him I’ll kill myself. Give him that message exactly please; I wouldn’t want to apply any extra pressure or anything.”

“There is no room in my body for anything but you. My arms love you, my ears adore you, my knees shake with blind affection. My mind begs you to ask it something so it can obey.”

“I’ve been saying it so long to you, you just wouldn’t listen. Every time you said ‘Farm Boy do this’ you thought I was answering ‘As you wish’ but that’s only because you were hearing wrong. ‘I love you’ was what it was, but you never heard.”

“Death of the heart,’ the subtitle says, Whose death? And even more important maybe, whose heart?”

“I’m not trying to make this a downer, understand. I mean, I really do think that love is the best thing in the world, except for cough drops. But I also have to say, for the umpty-umpth time, that life isn’t fair. It’s just fairer than death, that’s all.”

“Buttercup could picture Westley rounding the final corner. There were four guards outside waiting.
