The Princess Bride Honest Trailer Proves It's the 'Best Sappy Swashbuckling Medieval Love Story Ever Made'

Jan 10, 2017

The Princess Bride may be nearly 30 years old, but that doesn't make it any less perfect of a movie. In the latest Honest Trailer from Screen Junkies, the YouTube channel pokes fun at everyone's favorite satirical love story, dubbing Westley and Buttercup's star-crossed saga the "tale of epic romance that kicks off a young boy's puberty."

The video goes on to tackle the film's amusingly civilized fight sequences. "Prepare for plenty of action to go around — really, really polite action," the narrator says. "Where no danger is too great that you can't carry on a polite conversation and no enemy is too vile that you can't have a nice chat while they're trying to kill you."
