Despite growing up on kid-friendly '90's flicks ranging from Beauty and the Beast to Beethoven, this was my first time seeing any of the Free Willy movies. What did I think? It was cute and touching, particularly the ending. Willy was a likable "killer whale," and it makes a great point about the danger of keeping feral animals in captivity. In short, if you like cutesy animal flicks, this is worth checking out.

Content Concerns:
Sex: Brief, slight kissing. 4/5
Nudity: A boy is seen shirtless briefly; a woman in a bare-midriff outfit; a postcard with women in bikinis seen from the back is shown twice. 3/5
Language: Other than one or two misuses of God's name, language is no worse than "shut up," "crap," or "screw". 4/5
Violence: Kids are chased by police; a kid throws a baseball through a window in anger; bad guys try to kill an innocent animal. 3/5
Drugs: None. 5/5
Frightening/Intense Scenes: This movie is rife with emotional intensity; Willy cries a lot, and is a very emotional animal. There is also strife between the human characters as well. 2/5
Other: A Native American prayer is said; talk of evolution. 4/5

Score: 4/5
