If you have not seen this movie, you are missing out in life. There is an entire layer of the book missing from the movie.. but that does not detract anything from the story of love and caring (between the characters in the story, and the grand-father and grand-son who are reading the story). One of the best casts ever assembled (as you can see below) make this one of the best movies of all time.

Summary from IMDB

A kindly grandfather sits down with his ill grandson and reads him a story. The story is one that has been passed down from father to son for generations. As the grandfather reads the story, the action comes alive. The story is a classic tale of love and adventure as the beautiful Buttercup, engaged to the odious Prince Humperdinck, is kidnapped and held against her will in order to start a war, It is up to Westley (her childhood beau, now returned as the Dread Pirate Roberts) to save her. On the way he meets a thief and his hired helpers, an accomplished swordsman and a huge, super strong giant, both of whom become Westley's companions in his quest.
