But in case you were born sometime after the movie came out, the plot goes like this: A boy is read a fairy story that has been handed down and as he listens the action comes to life before his very eyes. Princess Buttercup (Robin Wright) has not only been promised to a horrid prince as his wife but is being held hostage in order to spark a war. Can her childhood sweetheart Westley (Cary Elwes) and his band of strange but merry men save her?
Well you don’t have long to wait to find out, because the 25th anniversary edition Blu-Ray is out on March 25 – and there are also some special screenings at Vue cinemas this weekend.
But meanwhile, I’m giving you the chance to win one of three copies of the Blu-Ray in my competition. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below, tweet ‘I want to win The Princess Bride with The Mum Blog’ and the link to this post to me @LizJarvisUK, or leave a comment on The Mum Blog facebook page.
Entries close next Thursday. Good luck, and remember, cynics are simply thwarted romantics 😉
