From Back Cover:
Pixar Animation Studios, the creator of Toy Story 3, whisks you away on an astonishing adventure to an ancient land full of mystery and tradition. Bursting with heart, unforgettable characters and Pixar's signature humor, Brave is "a rousing, gorgeously animated good time," raves Peter Travers of Rolling Stone.
Take a heroic journey with Merida, a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor. Deterined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land. When Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos in the kingdom, she must harness all of her skills and resources - including her clever and mischievous triplet brothers - to undo a beastly curse before it's too late, and discover the meaning of true bravery.
By no means a bad movie, but seriously disappointing. It had entirely too much reliance on crude humor (Hey Pixar, leave that shtick to Dreamworks, mmkay?) and I came away from this movie thinking "I've seen this before, only it was called Brother Bear."
Actually it could more accurately be described as the bastard child of Brother Bear and How To Train Your Dragon and is inferior to both.
Rated PG (MPAA)
