In this amazingly entertaining comedic fantasy, we follow the farmboy Westley (Elwes) and his beautiful beloved Buttercup (Wright) as they face the many obstacles to their union – including (but not limited to) pirates, evil princes, expert swordsmen, brutish giants, rodents (of unusual size), expert torturers, and political intrigue.
