In a world where bar hopping has lost its charm, The Princess Bride has become a great inspiration for all those who believe in romance. With its unique blend of dreamy fairy-tale love story, clever cultural references, and extremely witty comedy, the book won over all of its readers, and it became so popular that it was made into a movie. The movie quickly became an all-time classic, and it is ranked alongside old-time favorites like Casanova and Romeo and Juliet.
The book was published in 1973, and it was written by William Goldman. The film was made in 1987, and it revolves around two lovers, Westley and Buttercup. Buttercup lives on a farm, and she enjoys bossing around farmhand Westley, who never gets angry with her. In response to her demands, he will always say, “As you wish.” Slowly, however, Buttercup begins to fall in love with Westley, who has been in love with her for a long time.
When Westley realizes this, he leaves to seek his fortune, so that he can be worthy of her. Unfortunately, things turn for the worse, and many obstacles begin to emerge. Firstly, Westley’s ship is attacked by the Dread Pirate Roberts, a merciless pirate who kills everyone who is found on the ships he captures. When Buttercup hears the news, she thinks that Westley is dead, and she is heartbroken. Later on, she becomes engaged to Prince Humperdinck, much against her own will.
However, just before the wedding, Buttercup is kidnapped by a group of outlaws, which is comprised of Vizzini, a genius; Inigo Montoya, a skilled fencer; and Fezzik, a giant. As she is carried across the sea, a man in a black mask pursues them. Vizzini orders Inigo to stop the masked man, but despite Inigo’s skill with a sword, he is defeated by the masked man. Next, Fezzik tries to stop him, but he chokes the giant out. And lastly, the masked man tricks Vizzini into drinking poison. As Prince Humperdinck pursues them in an attempt to rescue Buttercup, the masked man reveals to her that he is the Dread Pirate Roberts, the man who killed Westley. Enraged, she shoves him off a cliff, telling him to die. And Roberts replies, “As you wish!”
Buttercup realizes that the masked man is Westley, and the pair is reunited. Just as they are about to live happily ever after, Humperdinck catches up with them. Buttercup promises to marry him if he lets Westley go free, and he agrees. But Humperdinck does not keep his promise, and he sends Westley to the ‘Pit of Despair’ and tortures him. On the eve of Buttercup’s wedding, Inigo and Fezzik discover that Count Rugen, the man who is torturing Westley, is responsible for the death of Inigo’s father. The pair decides to go after him, but they figure that they will need Westley’s help. They arrive at the Zoo but Westley has apparently been tortured to death. Inigo takes him to a “miracle man” who manages to save his life after Westley breathes out the reason he should live. That reason? True love.
Westley, Inigo, and Fezzik invade the castle at the time of the wedding, and the wedding is postponed. Buttercup decides to kill herself, but before she manages to do so, Westley reveals himself to her. Humperdinck barges in and challenges Westley to a sword fight. Westley is still very weak, but he manages to convince Humperdinck to surrender. Humperdinck surrenders, and Westley leaves with Buttercup.
At the end of the story, Westley and Buttercup ride off into the sunset with their new friends, and they live happily ever after.
The Princess Bride is a wonderful love story that shows how love can triumph over adversities, and it has touched the hearts of many people around the world.
