I just saw this today. It wasn't bad...the animation and music was beautiful. But I was so irritated that somehow the husband could not see the bear walking in the back of his hall while his daughter was giving the speech. And I was also never expecting to see bare asses in a Pixar film.
I just couldnt help but compare this movie to Dreamwork's 'How To Train Your Dragon' and to me, 'Brave' didn't come close. But, of course, since it is the almighty Pixar, the undeniably biased Oscars will reward this film for the exact same things that 'How To Train Your Dragon' did far better.
