98% on Tomatometer at Rotten Tomatoes with the following snippet

Boasting dazzling animation, a script with surprising dramatic depth, and thrilling 3-D sequences, How to Train Your Dragon soars.
One that I will likely be getting for kids and family.

They don't all speak with Scottish accents. All the actors are just basically using their natural accents. The Scottish stands out because two of the main vikings, Stoick and Gobber, are played by Scottish actors Gerard Butler and Craig Ferguson. The other main characters like Hiccup, Astrid, etc. speak with mostly American accents.

I am looking forward to seeing this with the kiddies. My 5 year old son saw the 3d version at the theatre and loved it!
BTW, great review on avs.

Good point on the accents Grog. I know that the kids didn't sound Scottish, but it seemed like most of the adults did. I'll have to sit down and watch it again. :)

We found the movie very enjoyable and I agree with most of the positive comments.
I'm not really a bonus feature watcher, but I bought the combo pack anyway so the kids could have their version.
Audio and Video were top-notch as expected.

One thing did strike me as a bit odd though. Why do all of the 'Vikings' have scottish accents?
Actually I found the adults all sound similair to Mike Meyers Shrek voice:confused: Odd, but other then that this movie was really quite good. Terrific PQ and AQ:D on BD.
