Teenage Sarah is babysitting her little brother, when she wishes that goblins would take him away. She gets her wish, and to get him back, she must find her way through the labyrinth to the castle in the center, facing the challenges along the way.
DVD, 5.1 Dolby digital, DTS, Region 1 encoding, widescreen.
Positive messages: Labyrinth has a big theme of things aren't always what they seem, and along with that, Sarah discovers that the goblins aren't as frightening and evil as they appear, and even befriends them after she defeats the Goblin King. There's definitely a message to not judge a book by it's cover. Sarah is also a very good teenage role model, in my opinion. She's not interested in dating and other teenagerish interests, and is instead imaginative, intelligent, holds on to her childhood dreams, and is very sympathetic towards animals. She uses these things to help her get through her challenges. She does have her faults, however. Although her stepmother is not very sympathetic and criticizes her for not going on dates "at her age", Sarah uses this as an excuse to feel sorry for herself and to treat her stepmother like the wicked ones in fairy tales. Also, when Sarah has to babysit her baby brother Toby, she wishes that the goblins would take him away (she wasn't expecting it to work though) and is frustrated that he took her teddy bear Lancelot from her bedroom. But by the end of the movie, she learns her lesson to use imagination for good (to solve the labyrinth), and becomes repentant of her bad uses of it - she lets Toby sleep with the teddy bear and is also seen taking down a picture of her mother from her mirror, seeming to suggest that she will open up more and be more forgiving to her stepmother. In the labyrinth, Sarah also learns not to let her books, childhood toys, and the other possessions she loves distract her from what's most important (which at the time was saving Toby).
Most reviews I have seen rate it as three stars, but I would definitely rate it as at least four.
