Happy endings are often hard to come by and simple wishes aren't always granted. But luckily we have movies to brainwash us into thinking otherwise. William Goldman's The Princess Bride is a shining example. Released as a film in 1987, it gained a reputation for its humorous innuendos and the cheesy drama that escalates from a tale of two lovers — Westley and Buttercup — who discover their romance is in grave danger, that's told to a child by his grandfather at bedtime.
