Finally got around to seeing the latest Pixar movie and… well… it was fine, but it sure seems like the golden age of Pixar is at an end. The realization that this movie was pretty much directly between Tangled and How to Train Your Dragon really drove home how even the good movies (in comparison to the Cars franchise, of course) are second-rate fare. It’s too bad, but that’s just the way of things.
The princess of a Scottish kingdom doesn’t want to have to marry any of the suitors available to her, so she goes to a witch to get her mom to change her mind about it. Of course, the magic cake accidentally turns her mom and three younger brothers into bears, and she has to figure out a way to remove the curse before Billy Connolly figures out that his wife is literally a bear.
Yeah, it was a fine movie. Had pretty much the same moral as Tangled in the set design for How to Train Your Dragon, but with the much better Billy Connolly in the big Scotsman role. Not a whole hell of a lot else to say about it.
