  1. I’ve had to sit/sleep/complain my way through this thing two times more than I should have. (I’ve seen this movie, oddly enough, twice) I can’t comprehend why so many people find this sort of low-brow humor amusing. (I guess the same geniouses who went to see Dumb and Dumber) I really hated that short little snot whose only claim to fame was being on Murphey Brown. (whoop) The quality of direction sort of reminds me of something I could have done with a home video camera, a bath tub, and a couple of toy boats. (I mean, come on! How many of you REALLY believed that was a full-sized ship they showed during the water scenes? Raise your hands please :::::silence::::: I thought not.)

  2. For years now I have wondered why people think this movie is so wonderful. It is not funny and the whole movie is just stupid. It is time the truth came out. This movie is pathetic as are the performances by the actors.

  3. Gosh–I know this is a classic for people of a certain generation, but still–it is, on the whole–awful, and it is NOT for children.

    The love story at the end does not redeem the nauseating scenes of drawn-out torture of the hero.

    The giant’s speech is utterly incoherent.

    Billy Crystal and Carol Kane perform the most unfunny Jewish old folks stereotypes in decades.

    Sorry–but I just don’t get why this is so cherished by some. It is cringeworthy on many levels, you’ll just be waiting an eternity for some scenes to be OVER, already.

    And the lack of extras on the DVD doesn’t justify the DVD price.

    Caution–if you believe this is a kids’ movie…it really isn’t.

  4. The Princess Bride is twenty years old, and after twenty years it’s difficult to see why anyone likes this movie. It is not realistic and most of the things that happen in the story are lies.

    The Princess Bride is about two guys who are in a book and they’re fighting over a princess named Buttercup. But the problem is that one of them is a pirate and the other one is a giant! I know it’s supposed to be fictional…but come on! Even my suspension of disbelief is not that good, and I work with children!

    At one point they all go in a swamp and that is pretty terrific because they have to deal with large rats, who are clearly added in digitally, but still are very thrilling. However, the rest of this movie is silly and doesn’t take any issues too seriously, but instead is too fantastical for anybody’s business.

    This movie would be a lot better if it had Sean Penn in it, working with his wife, and maybe if he were solving crimes instead of swordfighting or some such nonsense. Basically, I don’t believe that Sean Penn would be swordfighting, do you?

    Mandy Patinkin and Christopher Guest and Billy Crystal are wonderfully delightful in this film, that is otherwise a shamble from start to finish, and my guess is that whoever wrote the movie will probably never get offered another job before or after this movie.

    If this bedtime story were read to me, I would want to wake up and find out that it was all a dream and instead that somebody was going to read me the script of “P.S. I Love You”
