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 unlikely partnership with Linguini, the garbage boy, who inadvertently discovers Remy's amazing talents. They strike a deal, ultimately setting into motion a hilarious and exciting chain of extraordinary events that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down. Remy finds himself torn between following his dreams or returning forever to his previous existence as a rat. He learns the truth about friendship, family and having no choice but to be who he really is, a rat who wants to be a chef.more

There is so much to enjoy and celebrate here, Ratatouille deserves more than a review: it could (and probably will) inspire books about creativity and good taste.

Looking Closer

Ratatouille was written and directed by Brad Bird, the guy behind The Incredibles, and while his new movie isn't as brainy as that one, it has lots of lovely touches to appeal to parents as well as kids.

Ratatouille is a triumph that not only pays tribute to the spirit of discovery, but revels in the fun of making a few of its own.

And there's Remy himself, voiced by irreverent comic Patton Oswalt. Yes, he's a rat, and a pantless one at that, but he's a charming rat.

The latest from Pixar and Oscar winning writer-director Brad Bird is a fabulously enjoyable parable about the pursuit of excellence and rising above the preconceptions of others.

Birmingham Post

It's not just the best animated film this year, it's the best animated film to come out of the U.S. since Bird's last effort, The Incredibles.

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.
