And what a story: a lowly stable boy, Westley (Cary Elwes), pledges his love to the beautiful Buttercup (Robin Wright), only to be abducted and reportedly killed by pirates while Buttercup is betrothed to the evil Prince Humperdinck. Even as Buttercup herself is kidnapped by a giant, a scheming criminal mastermind, and a master Spanish swordsman, a mysterious masked pirate (could it be Westley?) follows in pursuit. As they sail toward the Cliffs of Insanity...
The wild and woolly arcs of the story, the sudden twists of fate, and, above all, the cartoon-scaled characters all work because of Goldman's very funny script, Reiner's confident direction, and a terrific cast. Elwes and Wright, both sporting their best English accents, juggle romantic fervor and physical slapstick effortlessly, while supporting roles boast Mandy Patinkin (the swordsman Inigo Montoya), Wallace Shawn (the incredulous schemer Vizzini), and Christopher Guest (evil Count Rugen) with brief but funny cameos from Billy Crystal, Carol Kane, and Peter Cook. --Sam Sutherland

|two versions of the story?||
It's not on the actual DVD.
It's just the booklet (storybook) that comes with the DVD, packaged inside the keepcase. You can read it from the front to back for one version of the story, or back to front for another version of the story.

|Does this have the same special features as the previous Dread Pirate...||
That should explain all you need to know. Long story short, get the Dread Pirate / Buttercup edition

|Is this version true widescreen?||
The blu-ray version is in true widescreen. The widescreen ratio for this film is 1:85, meaning if you are watching it on a widescreen TV it will fill your TV screen without having to be stretched. If you were to watch it on a 4:3 screen you would see the black bars at the top and bottom.
