A “Twue Love” Story

mediamatters11There are many, many love stories out there, but one stands out above the rest. It’s the perfect movie to watch with your date, with your friends, or with your family. It has the handsome hero, the beautiful princess, the (real?) giant, and the “inconceivable” villain.

Told as a story being read to a sick boy (Fred Savage) by his grandfather, The Princess Bride tells the love story of a beautiful maiden, Buttercup, and her farm boy, Westley. But when her love is captured by pirates and thought to be dead, she is chosen by Prince Humperdinck to be his princess bride. Through mistaken identity, kidnapping, fencing, and poisoning, the couple comes together again, only to be parted once more. But even ROUS’s and “mostly dead” cannot stop their “twue love.”

With interruptions by the “real-life” character, the sick boy, throughout the story, this movie is a delightful telling of a mediamatters2love story that everyone can enjoy.

Complete with action, humor, and fantasy, this movie of hilarious twists is sure to be the perfect addition to your date, girls’ night in, or family night together.

I give this movie two thumbs (or six fingers) up!
