QUICK TAKE:
Animated Drama/Action: A young, headstrong princess must contend with a spell she puts on her mother in hopes of getting out of an arranged marriage.
PLOT:
In the Scottish kingdom of DunBroch, King Fergus (voice of BILLY CONNOLLY) and Queen Elinor (voice of EMMA THOMPSON) have used different tactics in raising Princess Merida (voice of KELLY MACDONALD), sister to younger triplets Hamish, Hubert, and Harris. The boisterous Fergus thinks his daughter should know how to defend herself -- especially due to his previous run-in with a bear that took his leg -- and thus gave Merida a bow early on, and the young woman is quite adept with that. Elinor, on the other hand, thinks their daughter should be prim, proper and well-educated, all the better to attract a suitor.

Of course, in their world, that means an arranged marriage for the princess, something she's adamantly against. Nonetheless, the rulers of DunBroch's three other clans, Lord Dingwall (voice of ROBBIE COLTRANE), Lord MacGuffin (voice of KEVIN McKIDD) and Lord Macintosh (voice of CRAIG FERGUSON), arrive with their sons who will compete to win Merida's hand. She flees the castle and ends up following a number of floating and mystical wisps to a Witch (voice of JULIE WALTERS) living deep in the woods.

The resultant spell that Merida purchases -- in hopes of getting out of the arranged marriage -- end up having repercussions she couldn't expect. As a result, she must race against time to make things right before disaster afflicts her family and their kingdom.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Young girls will likely be most drawn to it, but those who are fans of Pixar movies might also be interested in seeing it.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some scary action and rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
