"Inconceivable!"
"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

'The Princess Bride' is a classic tale of romance, featuring fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, miracles, and true love.

 When Buttercup's love, Westley, is captured by the Dread Pirate Roberts - famous for leaving no prisoners alive - Buttercup mourns him for five years before being forced to marry Prince Humperdink.  Out riding one day, she is kidnapped by an odd trio of criminals who have been hired to start a war. Who is the mysterious Man in Black? What does deadly iocane powder smell like? What are Rodents of Unusual Size? And where did you put that wheelbarrow?
