You asked for it! As part of their Fan Appreciation Month, Screen Junkies has created an all-new Honest Trailer about the cult classic film “The Princess Bride.”
The film, which ranked as fourth in Screen Junkies’ poll, follows the farm boy Wesley and his true love Buttercup as they overcome adversity and cheat death in order to be with one another — but the Honest Trailer will make you question everything you thought you knew about their romance.
The Honest Trailer offers a rundown on all of the characters, including “Zorro,” “Pirate’s Booty,” “Obey,” “Danny DeVit-ish” and “His Fingers Go To Eleven.” Screen Junkies also pokes fun at the “really polite action” as well as the film’s memorable lines — which you probably only remember because each character says “their little catchphrase like a hundred times.” At the end of the day, though, the Honest Trailer has nothing but praise for the film.
Starring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Andre the Giant, Peter Falk, Billy Crystal and more, “The Princess Bride” debuted in 1987 and has been a fan favorite ever since. The film is currently available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.
