Movie Info

A scrawny rat named Remy (voice of Patton Oswalt) finds his dreams of culinary superstardom stirring up sizable controversy in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant in director Brad Bird's madcap computer-animated comedy. It's hard being a rat with culinary aspirations, but Remy is convinced he has what it takes to break the stereotypes and follow in the footsteps of star chef Auguste Gusteau (voice of Brad Garrett). As fate would have it, Remy is currently situated in the sewers directly

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.

I think Brad Bird is working on another level than most animated writer/directors.

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.

Up there with Finding Nemo and Monsters Inc. as one of Pixar's best creature features.

November 3, 2012 Full Review Source:

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.

It's a mélange of top notch production quality, great performances, amazing animation, and a universal story of friendship.

To borrow a line from the film, which includes an insightful look at the art of criticism: my compliments to the chef.

Ratatouille lacks the nutritional value of a truly satisfying meal. Only near the end does it serve up something meatier.

March 10, 2009 Full Review Source: Cinefantastique

When is a rat a lark? When he's created by Brad Bird. Brad Bird, the animation maestro from Pixar, invents a spunky, gourmet rodent in the lively, spicy romp Ratatouille.

A long run time (110 minutes) plus sly humor might make for restless kiddos. But take them anyway. Pixar is brain power.

Most of the discussions of food come off like an animated Frasier episode, which shouldn't have broad enough appeal.

Ratatouille is a delicious, delightful stew of a film, a classical fairy tale told with the language of 21st-century technology

One of the few Pixar films which, for me, seemed more geared toward just kids, as opposed to their usual balance of kid/adult themes.

One might have wished for a hero type more acceptable in terms of food preparation. Otherwise, delicious.

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.

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

The stakes are not as high in this film as they are in other Pixar movies, so despite the likable characters, it is hard to get that invested in the plot. Still, it is a good film by all standards.
