Critic Reviews of "The Princess Bride"TIME MagazineJune 28, 2013
As you watch this enchanting fantasy, feel free to be thrilled or to giggle, as you wish.Philadelphia InquirerJune 28, 2013
Patinkin, the most dazzling movie swordsman since Errol Flynn, steals the movie with his athletic grace and delivery of lines like: "My name is Inigo Montoya! Prepare to die!"Orlando SentinelJune 28, 2013
For parents who have felt as if they were approaching the Cliffs of Insanity while enduring the inanities of standard kiddie pictures, The Princess Bride may be a godsend.Los Angeles TimesJune 28, 2013
Heroic fantasies, we often feel, should be lighter than air, hot as dragon fire, fast as a sword in sunlight. And that's mostly what we get from the delightful The Princess Bride -- along with some bracing humor and foolery.Chicago TribuneJune 28, 2013
The film works well enough, providing its fair share of laughs and thrills, and in technical terms it is by far Reiner`s most professional job of direction.VarietyAugust 13, 2007
Based on William Goldman's novel, this is a post-modern fairy tale that challenges and affirms the conventions of a genre that may not be flexible enough to support such horseplay.GuardianFebruary 17, 2016
The Princess Bride easily transcends expectations, as a fantasy that has a few pertinent things to say about the genre, including the odd fact that the heroes of such things are often prettier than the heroines.Empire MagazineDecember 07, 2014
A unqualified success that blends New York wit with timeless storytelling; a risky piece of filmaking that never feels so.Reel Film ReviewsMay 05, 2014
...it's ultimately not difficult to see why The Princess Bride has become something of a classic in the years since its 1987 release.LarsenOnFilmNovember 13, 2013
...somehow spoofs the conventions of fantasy romance without teetering into irony.South Florida Sun-SentinelJune 28, 2013
In spirit The Princess Bride recalls The Neverending Story, which also was about a contemporary boy`s fantastic adventure. Reiner's film is likely to please adults more than kids and to last in memory more than most films this fall.Philadelphia Daily NewsJune 28, 2013
Mandy Patinkin, as Inigo Montoya, deserves special mention. Inigo is the one character in the film who contains real emotional depth, and Patinkin plumbs it.
