Yes, better than Big Night. Yes, smarter than Babette's Feast.

Ratatouille isn't a bad movie, just one that doesn't do enough of what it does well.
August 24, 2014
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 manages to simultaneously provide everything we love about Pixar movies while forging a new path.

Ratatouille seems more charming in concept than in execution. Bogged down by too many climaxes, it's a little overcooked.
August 4, 2013
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.
August 4, 2013
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.
July 24, 2013
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.

[Ratatouille] features some of the most gorgeous design and smartest writing ever to grace an animated feature by Pixar or anyone else.
July 6, 2010
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.

Genuine enchantment

Ratatouille lacks the nutritional value of a truly satisfying meal. Only near the end does it serve up something meatier.
February 2, 2009
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.

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

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