Watch: The Princess Bride 1987 123movies, Full Movie Online – An elderly man reads the book “The Princess Bride” to his sick and thus currently bedridden adolescent grandson, the reading of the book which has been passed down within the family for generations. The grandson is sure he won’t like the story, with a romance at its core, he prefers something with lots of action and “no kissing”, but he lets grandfather continue, because he doesn’t want to hurt his feelings. The story centers on Buttercup, a former farm girl who has been chosen as the princess bride to Prince Humperdinck of Florian. Buttercup does not love him, she who still laments the death of her one true love, Westley, five years ago. Westley was a hired hand on the farm, his stock answer of “as you wish” to any request she made of him which she came to understand was his way of saying that he loved her. But Westley went away to sea, only to be killed by the Dread Pirate Roberts. On a horse ride to clear her mind of her upcoming predicament of marriage, Buttercup is kidnapped by a band of bandits: Vizzini who works on his wits, and his two associates, a giant named Fezzik who works on his brawn, and a Spaniard named Inigo Montoya, who has trained himself his entire life to be an expert swordsman. They in turn are chased by the Dread Pirate Roberts himself. But chasing them all is the Prince, and his men led by Count Tyrone Rugen. What happens to these collectives is dependent partly on Buttercup, who does not want to marry the Prince, and may see other options as lesser evils, and partly on the other motives of individuals within the groups. But a larger question is what the grandson will think of the story as it proceeds and at its end, especially as he sees justice as high a priority as action..
Plot: In this enchantingly cracked fairy tale, the beautiful Princess Buttercup and the dashing Westley must overcome staggering odds to find happiness amid six-fingered swordsmen, murderous princes, Sicilians and rodents of unusual size. But even death can’t stop these true lovebirds from triumphing.

**The Princess Bride is truly a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that everyone can and should enjoy.**
There is nothing quite like The Princess Bride. It’s classic, timeless, charming, clever, hilarious, well-done, and just an all-around excellent film. The Princess Bride is good, safe, fun for the whole family, filled with romance, adventure, comedy, fantasy, action, and heroism. It’s a film for everyone and can be enjoyed by all ages. This film stands as an icon because of its touching romance, hilarious satire, and unforgettable characters. If you haven’t seen this movie, do yourself a favor and watch it now!
The Princess Bride is ultimately a story of love – of a grandather for his grandson, of Inigo Montoya for his murdered father and between Buttercup and Wesley. It is an old fashioned fairy tale in a sense, but its imagination, wit and humour stands it apart from convention. The characters are endearing and essential to the plot. The pace of the film changes up and down beautifully throughout and the script is a joy, playing with words and ideas. Humanity prevails in this wonderous tale, I learnt plenty from it as a child and I still watch it from time to time to remind me of the goodness within us and the ability to triumph over adversity. The Princess Bride has a way of being traditional whilst challenging norms and that is why I will always love it. 10/10 for me. The only criticism I have is that it is too male centric as many films and series still are unfortunately. Although, saying that, Buttercup is much hardier than most princesses portrayed in children’s films. This is a film that appeals to adults and children alike. Stop writing did you say? As you wish x
Possibly one of the most enjoyable films ever made…
“As you wish…” “Inconceivable!” “My name is Inigo Montoya…”
I love this film so much.
From its opening scenes of the young boy being read a story by his kindly Grandfather to the romance, action, adventure and fun of the fairy tale. The Princess bride tells the tale of the beautiful Buttercup (Robin Wright) and her true love Westley (Elwes)who become separated through the course of an unfortunate event involving some pirates. Westley’s destiny is to rescue Buttercup from the clutches of an evil Prince so that they might be together again. Yet he’s not bargained on some of the wonderful characters that he will meet (and befriend) along the way…
This film is so deliciously acted, made and written that it is a treat to watch.I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen it now. But every time I still gain the same enormous amount of pleasure from watching it. A movie that is a delight for the young and just as much fun for everyone else.
The actors are all superb in their roles (‘perfect casting’ does not come close to describing it!) A young Cary Elwes is suitably dashing as our cocky hero (check out the sword fighting!)and Robin Wright is good as the beautiful Buttercup. Mandy Patinkin is great as the vengeful Inigo Montoya who utters that famous “you killed my father. prepare to die” line. Everyone else gives there all, including Christoper Guest, Chris Sarandon (as the main villian), Wallace Shawn, the late Andre The Giant,Mel Smith, and Billy Crystal.
Even though it is about 18 years old, the humour and sly jokes are still as sharp today as they were back in 1987.You know you are watching a great movie when you here Elwes’ “To the pain…” speech near the end. You’ve probably seen The Princess Bride. If so…go and watch it again. Right now, and remind yourself how good it is! And if you haven’t- what are you waiting for? Go and check it out now! It’s worth it! Hands up who can quote this entire film off by heart! 😉
Watch out for:
The R.O.U.S’s Elwes’ and Patinkin’s Sword/word fight The Miracle Max scene When our heroes storm the castle (Go Inigo! Go Inigo!) Elwes’ “To the pain…” speech. (Superb. Shows what a great (and unfortunately underused) actor he is)
