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.

It's one of the strange ironies of Hollywood that adult audiences are usually treated like imbeciles while children receive much greater respect.

Ratatouille isn't a bad movie, just one that doesn't do enough of what it does well.

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

The breathtaking reveal of Paris, the legendary city of lights, is only one of the many delights of this exquisitely designed movie.

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.

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.

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