I know this because I was recently instated "Master of all Opinions" where mine is the most rightest. The Structure I guess the real place to start with this book is with its structure. You may have noticed that the actual title is - The Princess Bride: But that's also the ge First of all, anyone who's rated this less than 5 stars is just wrong, very wrong.
You killed my father. And when Rob Reiner directed those words, he had no idea that kids and young adults everywhere would be repeating them. Likewise, when meeting a date, the best choice of an opening is not, "My name is Inigo Montoya.
But those lines are only a very small part of what makes The Princess Bride such a special motion picture. And, for those who crave features that can be enjoyed by every member of the family grammar school kid, teenage troublemaker, tough-to-please twenty-something, beleaguered mom and dad, and grumpy grandparentsthere may be nothing better than this motion picture, which celebrates fairy tales and true love with its tongue firmly planted in its cheek.
This is what happens when stories of heroism and derring-do collide head-on with a Monty Python sensibility.
Best of all, despite its satirical bent, The Princess Bride can still be enjoyed on the simpler level of the story of a princess being rescued by her one true love.
The Princess Bride is constructed as a story-within-a-story, with the framing scenes occurring in the "real world" as a grandfather Peter Falk stops by to read a story to his sick grandson Fred Savage.
During these scenes, Reiner makes a statement about the value of books over electronic forms of entertainment. When the grandfather arrives, his grandson is playing a video game, a blank expression on his face.
But, once the story takes flight in his imagination, he is absorbed and transfixed - transported to another time and place in a way that even the best electronic game cannot accomplish. The primary narrative, which evolves as the grandfather reads it and occasionally interrupts it to intersperse comments or skip over boring partstakes place in the magical land of Florin, and tells of the true love between peasant girl Butercup Robin Wright, years before marry Sean Penn and stablehand Westley Cary Elwes.
After declaring their unending affection for each other, they are separated, and Westley is reported dead.

The Man in Black. He pursues them to the Cliffs of Insanity, where he engages in a duel of steel with Inigo, a wrestling match with Fezzik, and a match of wits with Vizzini to win Buttercup.
Once she is in his custody, he reveals himself to be Westley. Fortunately, Westley and Buttercup are not without allies. Reiner manages the difficult yet ultimately rewarding task of creating a movie that simultaneously parodies a genre while also celebrating and participating in it.
Despite the satirical edge and the fantastic setting, we come to care about these individuals. The film is based on the book by William Goldman, who wrote his own screenplay adaptation. Before Reiner backed with financing from his old "All in the Family" buddy, Norman Lear came along, Goldman had been trying for 15 years to get the movie made.
At one point, Norman Jewison was attached to the project. Years later, he would comment that he was only fully satisfied with the motion picture versions of two of his scripts: Many Disney films fit into this category.
