The Princess Bride Movie Summary

Fred Savage is at home sick when his grandfather, Peter Falk, stops by to read him a story about true love. Unimpressed, Fred agrees to his grandfather reading him the story anyhow.

This is a tale of a beautiful young woman named Buttercup who lives in the countryside of Florin. She falls in love with her farm boy named Westley who is already madly in love with her, but can only express his love for her by answering all her requests with the phrase, “As you wish.” Before they can get married, Westley decides to seek his fortune in America, but on his journey across the pond, his ship is attacked by the Dread Pirate Roberts. Westley is assumed to have been killed in the assault as the Dread Pirate Roberts never leaves anyone alive.

Five years go by, and Buttercup is chosen by Prince Humperdinck, the heir to the throne of Florin, to be his wife, but before the marriage can take place, Buttercup is kidnapped by the Sicilian sexy toy, Vizzini, and his two lackeys; the gigantic Fezzik, and his revenge-minded partner, Inigo Montoya, whose only goal is to kill the six-fingered man who slaughtered his father some years earlier.
