Lord MacGuffin and his son are appropriately named. A MacGuffin (or McGuffin) is a film industry slang term that is loosely defined as an otherwise unimportant plot item/event that nevertheless drives the plot forward. In this case, the three suitors are only a means by which to escalate the tension between the princess and the queen. See more »
Merida's bow appears to be a double recurved self-wood type such as was used in the Great Plains area of North America during the 19th century. She also carries a quiver. Neither of these were used in any part of medieval Britain; bows were always self-wood (made of a single piece of timber) made without re-curves, while arrows for immediate use were carried tucked into the belt. At one point Merida carries an arrow in her mouth in order to follow up very quickly with a second shot - this was typical of native Americans of the Plains when hunting on horseback and in warfare. There are historic photographs by Edward Curtis of Plains warriors using this technique. It is definitely not recorded in medieval Scotland or elsewhere in Britain. See more »

I watched this movie in 3D with my (very mature for his age) five year old grandson. He loved it and wanted to talk about the plot for most of the afternoon to anyone who would listen. However, other young children in the theatre were rather nervous and scared in certain parts of the film and a few very small (2 - 4 year old) children had to be escorted out of the cinema by their parents.
Personally, after the first five minutes, which were a bit slow, I became absorbed in the story and thoroughly enjoyed the movie. There was lots of action and the plot was attention grabbing and unique, with no soppy love story and little slang included.
