Brave

Plot hole: During the scene where Merida gives her speech on "breaking tradition", her mother, as a bear, moves silently behind the majority of the crowd, so they don't see her. Fair enough. However, Merida and her father's clan are all looking in the same general direction (towards the crowd) while she's speaking - how does no one from Merida's clan see a bear moving at the back of the room?

Factual error: When Merida's family are having lunch, potatoes are being eaten. Potatoes weren't introduced anywhere in Great Britain until the 16th century - this film is set around the 10th or 11th century.

Continuity mistake: After Mor'du gets crushed by a large piece of stone, and as the sun is rising, Merida removed the tapestry from Angus to place over her mother, who is still a bear, in hope to break the spell. Angus also appears to be in the circle of stones, yet, in the shot that views everyone in the circle of stones from above, Angus is nowhere in sight.

Factual error: When Merida is having her day out, the bird she sees is a Harris's Hawk. However, the Harris's Hawk is native to the central part of America, (southern North America down throughout much of South America) and wouldn't be seen in Scotland.

Continuity mistake: After Elinor saves Merida's bow from the fire, it is colored white while being slightly singed. However, when Merida uses the same bow later on, the bow is now dark brown, and the discs on it are gone.
