‘Brave’s Bear Moment and 18 Other Ridiculous Plot Twists


ALTTime for the requisite SPOILER ALERT: If you saw Brave this weekend, you’d know that among its great, empowering moments, there was one that made your eyes roll to the back of your heads. If you didn’t see Brave this weekend, you wouldn’t know that the moment I speak of involved Princess Merida’s mother being turned into a bear. That’s right, the film about a spunky young princess featured an awkward plot twist about Merida coping with a mother bear. (And a literal one at that!) Sorry, faux Dwight — I’d take beets and Battlestar Galactica over bears in my Brave.

But Brave is hardly the first film to feature a ridiculous plot twist. So, to make the uneven film feel a bit better, we’ve decided to run down 18 movie plot twists even more ridiculous than Brave‘s. Below, see a list that would make M. Night Shyamalan proud (but the rest of us embarrassed).
