Princess bride

The Princess Bride is a 1987 romantic comedy adventure film based on the novel by William Goldman. The frame story is of a grandfather reading a novel to his grandson, who is staying home from school, sick in bed. The novel he reads tells the story of fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles... It's not too bad. Try to stay awake.


  • The Mother, whose only line is to announce the arrival of the grandfather
  • Buttercup, a beautiful farmgirl and damsel-in-distress
  • Valerie, Mad Max's wife
  • The Ancient Booer, a figure in Buttercup's dream sequence who hurls insults at her
  • The Queen, Prince Humperdinck's mother who only has one line


  • The Ancient Booer yells at Buttercup for giving up her true love. This conversation possibly doesn't count for two reasons: one, because they are discussing Westley (the Ancient Booer is talking about him indirectly, only saying that Buttercup has given up her "true love," but Buttercup mentions him by name) and two, because the scene is a dream sequence, and the Ancient Booer is only in Buttercup's mind, a reflection of her own grief and subconscious guilt, so it's not really a conversation between two distinct characters.
