Movie Info

In the hilarious new animated-adventure, Ratatouille, a rat named Remy dreams of becoming a great chef despite his family's wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the city of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau. Despite the apparent dangers of being an unwanted visitor in the kitchen at one of Paris' most exclusive restaurants, Remy forms an

Kids are gonna gobble Ratatouille up; adults will relish its wit, and everyone will want to go out to eat after.

Ratatouille is a film made for snobs that may still repel them.

A lot of animated movies have inspired sequels, notably Shrek, but Brad Bird's Ratatouille is the first one that made me positively desire one.

No restaurant has ever benefited from placing rats in a recipe, but the digital wizards in Pixar's kitchen have cooked up a winning peasant dish in Ratatouille.

Ratatouille is a wonderful, wistful comedy, and a sparkling return to form for the computer animation studio Pixar after last year's lacklustre Cars.

As in his previous films, Bird offers up a story with substance.

Ratatouille is a delicious delight, brimming with colorful characters, lush animation and, as Remy rises at a chic Parisian restaurant, useful culinary advice.

Ratatouille seems more charming in concept than in execution. Bogged down by too many climaxes, it's a little overcooked.

Working with a tight, well-judged script and sensational animation that makes you want to go home and cook -- as well as be nicer to rodents -- director Brad Bird delivered the best family comedy of that year.

Thankfully, Ratatouille never relies on pop-culture references or crass satire to get laughs. It creates comedy on its own terms.

The Academy might as well hand over the animated feature Oscar to Brad Bird right now, since it is hard to imagine any other film coming close to his glorious new film Ratatouille in this or any year.

Ratatouille follows the pattern of dazzling entertainment set long before by the first Toy Story picture, but elevates it to something more resounding than just a routine cartoon adventure with colorful characters or sight gags.

As classically as "Babe," "Ratatouille" turns animal-kingdom expectations on their ear for a unique, generous and gleeful gastronomic masterpiece that knows it's not much fun to look out, or cook, only for yourself.

Audience Reviews for Ratatouille

Didn't love it, but i do wish i had seee it in the theatre. some fun animation but i just didn't connect very strongly with Remy the Rat and the many storylines. Peter O'Toole is quite delicious as the heavy.

Ratatouille is another brilliant Pixar outing that features a great story, wonderful animation, a varied cast of talented actors that brings the character to life, and it has some terrific humor. Pixar are truly wonderful in making some memorable animated feature films that really resonate with the viewer. Ratatouille is yet another fine picture that is highly entertaining from start to finish, and it is a film that is a must see for fans of previous Pixar films. Animated features are always great to watch because; they have a unique to quality to them that makes them a truly memorable viewing experience. With Ratatouille, Pixar have taken a simple idea, and crafted a thoroughly entertaining film experience that stands out. From start to finish, the film is entertaining, fun, and memorable because, the simple nature of the story, mixed with wonderful animation and great voice acting, you have a film that is a feat of animation. I love Pixar films, and it's hard to pick a favorite, because every film the studio has made has really stood out, but if you're wondering, Ratatouille continues the tradition of the studio to release quality films, and are a studio that have only made one lacking picture. Here, we have a film that is beautifully made, tells a simple, yet thoroughly engaging story that is never dull, and always amusing. Ratatouille works well, and is a picture that is brilliantly directed and is a film that will appeal to viewers of all ages. This is a superb animated feature, one that is yet another fine addition to Pixar's outstanding catalogue of great movies. If you want a fun, entertaining animated film, Ratatouille is a solid and safe bet to watch, as it has all the key elements that have made Pixar's films something to behold.

Pixar's latest installment is a recipe of success. Ratatouille is bold and classy with the flare of European culture. Patton Oswalt's adventurous critter spices a flamboyant film with an interesting plot and dynamic delivery. 4/5
