‘The Princess Bride,’ based on William Goldman’s novel of the same name, is a cult classic that chronicles the story of Buttercup, a farm girl. She falls in love with Westley, who embarks on a quest for money in order to marry her. However, his ship is attacked by pirates on the way, and he is assumed dead. Prince Humperdinck proposes to her five years later, and she grudgingly accepts.’
The Princess Bride’ contains pretty about everything a person might want: a love story, pirate sword fights, gigantic rats, Andre the Giant, and Billy Crystal. What’s really interesting about this is that The Princess Bride is a novel in real life, so this film adaption is simply someone reading that book and a boy’s vision of what’s going on. It has fantastic pacing in that it is rather abrupt, and it serves as a nice reminder throughout that, even though we know it’s supposed to be a story, we can’t help but become emotionally invested in the characters. The film is magnificent in every way. With that said, here’s a list of films that are similar.

Beauty and the Beast (1991)
As much as I enjoyed Emma Watson’s live-action ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ the animated version’s original appeal is difficult to ignore.

The originals have a certain enchantment about them that never fades. Cinderella’s narrative has been remade and retested numerous times, sometimes with modern-day twists and other times in its original form. The film ‘Cinderella’ from the 1950s is the one that started it all. The narrative of the girl who is subjugated by her scheming stepmother and stepsisters but is helped to attend the royal ball by her fairy godmother is a timeless classic.

Forrest Gump (1994)
The film, which was based on Winston Groom’s 1986 novel of the same name, won worldwide acclaim and went on to win six Academy Awards. The film follows Forrest Gump’s path from childhood paralysis to becoming a military hero for his nation, starring Tom Hanks as the equally adorable Forrest Gump. On and off-screen, the character’s innocent innocence was handled deftly. Character eccentricities were constructed, such as Forrest’s use of hard ‘Gs’ at the end of phrases, which have gained cult status and are extensively inferred in cinema culture. The film, like the novel, has become a cult classic, with the phrase “Run Forrest! Run!” appearing in a variety of ways in modern times.

Immortal Story (1968)
The first color film by Orson Wells is a stressful yet captivating story of forgiveness and love. The plot centres around Macau’s wealthy Charles Clay (Orson Welles), who hears a story from his bookkeeper (Roger Coggio) about a wealthy man who employs a sailor to bed his wife and provide him with an heir. Clay can’t believe what he’s hearing, and the only way he can is to reenact it, to make it real in order to reassert his grip on reality. The film is built up in rich layers that unravel and lead the audience to an exciting conclusion. The mind behind ‘Citizen Kane’ surely created another masterpiece, if not better, then at least comparable in importance.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937)
Over the years, a number of films have been made based on the Snow White story.
