Rob Reiner did a wonderful job directing this film. All the elements of classic children’s tales are centered around a story of true love. We have villains, sword fighting, torture chambers, monsters, bumbling idiots, and miracles. What’s not to like?
I love the story outside the story: the grandfather reading the story to the sick child. The scenes are endearing and anyone can relate.
It’s a classic tale and one that will remain in the hearts of everyone no matter how old or young! ~~LMMolina
