WILLOW is a fantasy adventure in which a farmer protects a baby from an evil sorceress.


There is use of 'jackass' and 'hell'.


A male character disguised as a woman is groped by another man and asked if he wants to breed. There is also brief female nudity but detail is hidden in shadow and only briefly shown from behind.


Scenes include swordfights, fistfights, and displays of magic in which characters are thrown around. There are also sequences in which characters are transformed into pigs and a troll turns into a two headed monster, complete with some slimy effects. However, there is limited sight of blood or injury detail throughout.

There are scenes of mild threat, including characters being chased by dogs.
