Fred Savage plays a sick grandson being read a story by his grandfather — one that is much more than a love story (although there is a little kissing, he's told).
This classic is about a beautiful princess named Buttercup (Robin Wright) being held against her will by the evil Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon) in order to start a war. It's up to Westley (Cary Elwes), Buttercup's childhood beau, to save her.
With the help of some friends he meets along the way, including a band of thieves and a giant, Westley sets out to save Buttercup. Can he do it? Chock full of action, drama, and love, this fairytale does, indeed, seem to have it all for kids of all ages.
