A 1973 book and 1987 movie
by William Goldman
, The Princess Bride
is about the trials of true love in the Renaissance European nation of Florin.
Both the book and movie are inconceivably
well done (albeit in very different ways) and very funny (the movie won "Funniest Movie Ever
" at The Sluggite Zone
), as a sort of romantic-comedy-adventure. If this summarynote
does not do The Princess Bride
justice, then the sheer number of tropes named after lines from the movie should.
