Actor Cary Elwes has been slapped with a lawsuit after allegedly backing out of a deal to sell his Malibu, California home.
Tris Felder claims he recently agreed to a deal with The Princess Bride star to buy the pad for $1.7 million (£1.06 million), but when he tried to deliver the $51,000 (£31,875) deposit, the actor had changed his mind about the sale.
The plaintiff failed to obtain a formal purchase agreement, but alleges he has a letter of a counteroffer which has been signed by Elwes, which is enough for him to sue.

For a comedy that so desperately wants to be rude and sexy, this movie is remarkably timid. It does a great job putting up a front as an anarchic laugh riot, but the genuinely funny moments are few and far between. And it seems to have been written by sniggering teenage boys who can only imagine what it's like to experience sex, drugs and romance, but they haven't a clue, really. Thankfully, the starry cast makes it just about watchable.
With a drunken mom (Mary-Louise Parker) and a deadbeat dad (Cary Elwes), 17-year-old Rick (Nat Wolff) pretty much has to grow up on his own. Then over two fateful weeks everything starts going wrong. Just as he seems to be making progress with hot good-girl Nina (Selena Gomez), he gets caught in a drug deal with a strip-club manager (Dylan McDermott), the cops find a dead mobster in his car, and then everyone is arrested when a house party he throws turns into a drug-fuelled sex romp. Even more precarious for Rick is the fact that he has just lost his virginity to Pamela (Elisabeth Shue), who is both his mother's best friend and the mother of his best friend Billy (Lachlan Buchanan).
Yes, the script wallows in sex and drugs, but never seems quite sure what to do with them, shying away whenever anything remotely grown-up threatens to happen. Instead, scenes degenerate into corny broad comedy that feels more than a little desperate. Director Tim Garrick throws everything he can think of at the screen, so naturally a few gags stick. Even if the plot is paper-thin, and several of the jokes are beyond offensive (including gags hinging on both statutory and prison rape), there are also several witty zingers that elicit outright laughter. Such as when Nina remarks casually that her parents are away from home attending a pro-life gun rally in Dallas.

Some of our favourite quotes from The Princess Bride
The Princess Bride 25th anniversary has arrived and with it, a Blu-ray special edition featuring loads of brand new extras including interviews, behind the scenes action and much more.
This cult classic fairytale movie arrived on our screens in 1988 featuring a hilarious ensemble cast that has kept us gripped for a quarter of a century of watching. It is the story of how a beautiful young woman named Buttercup (Robin Wright) is forced into almost marrying the deceitful Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon), before being captured by a group of not so bright but not so evil crooks; a Spanish fencer named Inigo (Mandy Patinkin), a Turkish giant named Fezzik (André the Giant) and their Sicilian boos Vizzini (Wallace Shawn). However, along the way she is reunited with her former love Westley (Cary Elwes) who she believed to be dead until then, and they all go about attempting to bring down Buttercup's fiancé, the future King of Florin.
Although it was never a major success at the box office, this classic Oscar nominated film was well-received by critics on its release and it has remained a family favourite ever since, being especially regarded as one of the most quotable films of all time. Some of the best The Princess Bride quotes are worth bringing up again:

New Year's Eve boasts a skillful comedy director, Garry Marshal, and an imposing cluster of stars, including Halle Berry, Hilary Swank, Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Cary Elwes, James Belushi, Penny Marshall, Matthew BroderickBon Jovi, Zac Efron, Ludacris, Abigail Breslin, Katherine Heigl, Josh Duhamel, Ryan Seacrest, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ashton Kutcher, and more. (Oh, and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.) But, in his review in the Chicago Sun-Times , Roger Ebert asks, "How is it possible to assemble more than two dozen stars in a movie and find nothing interesting for any of them to do?" Mick LaSalle in the San Francisco Chronicle wonders the same thing. "What can be said," he asks, "about a movie that ... has all the stars in the galaxy and all the appeal of rotting fish?" Manohla Dargis in The New York Times says that the movie simply "interweaves more than a half-dozen gtrivial subplots into a cheerlessly cheery mosaic. The screenplay isn't written so much as assembled in carefully slotted little blocks." To several critics it seems as if plot and performance really doesn't matter. According to Wesley Morris in the Boston Globe , movies like New Year's Eve and Marshall's previous Valentine's Day are all about exploiting "our gluttony for famous people and special occasions with extra-strength celebrity overlap." Sara Stewart in the New York Post begins her review this way "If I say I don't much care for New Year's Eve, I risk sounding like a curmudgeon. But I have zero reservations about telling you how much I loathed New Year's Eve , a soul-sucking monument to Hollywood greed and saccharine holiday culture." And Linda Barnard concludes her review in the Toronto Star by voicing this wish "As we all link arms and sing 'Auld Lang Syne' we hope that somewhere amid the streamers and popping champagne corks director Marshall is making a resolution to stop making these [holiday-themed] movies. If he gets his hands on St. Patrick's Day we're done for."
