Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: State-of-the-art special effects and an appealing performance from Warwick Davis can't quite save Willow from its slow pace and generic story.

Common Sense Says
Magic-filled fantasy adventure with a few battle scenes.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Willow is a wonderful fantasy adventure with lots of intense scenes of battle and conflict, which are often lightened with humor. Expect an evil queen who yells and threatens to kill a baby, plus some scary wildebeests and soldiers who storm a village of innocents -- including kids -- but leave before anyone is seriously hurt. Some battles result in apparent deaths with a little blood, but nothing is lingered on or explicit. A couple monsters are pretty creepy and put beloved characters in peril. In one scene a man gropes at the breast of one of the lead characters who is disguised as a woman. There is some romantic kissing and a hint of infidelity. Also, there is some puerile humor, including use of the word "pee pee," a baby vomiting in a man's face, and gags involving animal feces.
