YMMV: Brother Bear

  • Accidental Innuendo: "Well gee, eh, you're one big beaver." It doubles as Fridge Brilliance if you remember that there was a giant species of beaver that existed during the time the movies take place.
  • Base Breaker: Koda. You'll either find him cute or annoying. Though funnily Kenai himself calls out Koda in-universe for being the "biggest pain in the neck ever", but it's "what you'd expect from a little brother" anyway.
  • So Okay, It's Average
  • Somewhere, a Mammalogist Is Crying: Kenai is portrayed as weak for having troubles wrestling a human, in both the original (Denahi) and sequel (Atka). In real life just a pounce of a grown bear's paw is enough to knock the average man unconscious, and don't even try to think you can outmuscle one; you can't. The unusual circumstances makes this more understandable. Kenai is still new to being a bear, and not fully grown, and since he was originally human, doesn't really want to hurt Atka.
  • Soundtrack Dissonance: Kenai starts to tell Koda what happened to his mother. This is arguably the most important part of the film. What does Phil Collins do? Sing over it. A deleted scene shows the entire story without singing, averting this trope.In the introduction to said deleted scene on the DVD, co-director Aaron Blaise explains that the filmmakers felt that the confession scene and the song were basically the same beat in the story, so they were merged for simplicity. YMMV on whether keeping the song over the confession was the better choice, but one of them had to go.
