A modern update of the basic fairy tale crammed with all the cliches, this adventurously irreverent love story centers around beautiful maiden Buttercup (Wright Penn) and her young swain Westley (Elwes) as they battle the evils of the mythical kingdom of Florin to be reunited with one another. Great dueling scenes and offbeat satire of the genre make this fun for adults as well as children. Based on William Goldman's cult novel.

More than just another lame fantasy flick, PB will please romance fans, humor devotees, and wrestling aficionados alike. Gleaning great performances from all involved, PB should be in everyone's film collection.
