Brave(2012)

I feel like this movie was green-lit after establishing some great characters and an interesting setting, while the rest of the story was created in a game of Pixar Mad Libs. After the first act (which is pretty much laid out entirely in the trailers), what we get is a been-there-done-that body-switching story, with witches, learning to get along, and all that stuff I saw in Emperor's New Groove. Of course, this is Pixar, so they do a good job of getting by on schmooze and charm, but I couldn't help but be disappointed despite my general enjoyment.
