An impetuous princess discovers that her reckless choice has put both her family and her father's kingdom in peril in this animated adventure from Pixar films. As a toddler, Merida (voice of Kelly MacDonald) saw her father, King Fergus (Billy Connolly), do battle with one of the fiercest animals in the kingdom -- a horribly scarred hulk of a bear named Mordu. Though Fergus lost his leg defending his family, Merida and her mother, Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson), managed to escape the beast before it vanished back into the forest. Years later, Merida has grown up to become not just a skilled archer, but also a beautiful princess who inspires a competition among the eligible bachelors in the land. But Merida has little interest in getting married, and the harder her mother pushes the issue, the more fiercely she resists it. When the tournament for her hand gets under way and a deep divide opens between mother and daughter, Merida makes a wish that threatens the future of both her family and the entire kingdom. Now, with only a brief window of time to set things right, Merida must summon the courage to atone for her mistake and prevent a past tragedy from destroying any hope for a peaceful future.

I'm 18, and I love this movie! I really love the music in it and love how this movie is about a mother-daughter relationship, instead of a prince. I love those Disney movies too, but this one is a nice change. Super cute and funny! I love it!

My sister always says that you can tell that they switched directors in the middle of the movie, which is true. Nevertheless, its still a great movie, and I think the beginning is better that the other half. It was going in a good direction until they changed directors. I really like and recommend this film.

Good movie about a strong girl that learns not to be quite so willful and crazy. The visuals and score are wonderful, as expected from any Pixar movie, and I absolutely loved the incorporation of Scottish traditions/dress/music, even if the music had a modern flair. Archery was well done, and they didn't avoid the whole issue of magic, nor did it end up completely Disney-fied.

The people who panned this movie didn't get it at all or they were'nt paying attention. This movie was well done. This Scottish music and traditions were great. Merida's Clydesdale, Angus was real looking and not comical like many other Disney movies. Loved the whole thing!

I find several of the negative reviews unfair to the film.  First of all it is beautifully done and the music is great.  Yes Merida is an undisciplined girl who has been allowed to be as wild as she likes and she is disrespectful to her parents.  But the storyline is that she realizes that and learns to take responsibility and fix the problems she has caused.  Thought it portrayed the relationship between a daughter and mother very well, and for the person who wrote that it was disrespectful to marriage.  First of all its not a princess love story and second of all she doesn't turn away from love or marriage she just isn't ready yet.  It's about not pushing your children and children learning to understand their parents are coming from a place of love.  I highly recommend this movie.  Not your typical Disney princess movie and that might be a good thing.

This was horrible.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             This movie portrays marriage as something to fight against - something to fight and fear.  It backs up that resumption by having Merida's suitors be physically weak and mentally inadequate - in other words, beneath hr.  In their one chance to demonstrate their value, Merida deliberately chooses a contest where she can outshine all of them.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Beyond that Merida deliberately curses her mom, and unintentionally curses her brothers.   When she curses her mom she's horrified, but just keeps saying " It's not my fault".  She takes no responsibility  for her actions.   Later when she learns she'd cursed her  brothers also , she isn't horrified or shocked - she was angry, at them.  She felt no guilt for what she'd done to to her brothers. Hard to believe children are even allowed to watch this, much less encouraged to.
