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?

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. (01:33:00)

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.

Princess Merida: I want my freedom!
Queen Elinor: But are you willing to pay the price your freedom will cost?

Question: After being turned into a bear, Elinor finds her sons in Fergus' trophy room messing up his trophies. She forces them to put everything back to where it was and they obey. How did the boys know it was their mother before Merida told them? (01:33:00)

Answer: They're intuitive. A regular bear would not order them about. This bear's behavior reminded them of their mother, so they made the logical assumption that it must be her.
