The studio's latest effort offers beautiful and strikingly realistic animation, but the flawed concept should have been scrapped...

It's not my favourite Pixar film.

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

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

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.

Occasionally inspired, but mostly trivial and pointless.

Ratatouille has imaginative animation, creative characters, but the use of a gray rat and his garbage-eating family is questionable.

Pixar's weakest film in almost a decade.

Has Pixar lost its magic recipe? Ratatouille is filled with fairly generic animated imagery, a few modest chases, a couple of good gags, not a lot of laughs.

Beyond the stunning animation (they finally got hair right!), there's little to recommend besides the fact that it's a touch better than Shrek the Third.

The wild, devoted praise afforded Bird's solid yet tepid films puzzles me. It's as though society is playing a joke that everyone but me and a few others are in on. I smell a Ratatouille.
