Kids are gonna gobble Ratatouille up; adults will relish its wit, and everyone will want to go out to eat after.
October 12, 2007
A comedy that relates realistically to life, fashioned not with dozens of hilarious jokes but with due regard for proper storytelling.

I loved Ratatouille. I was even tempted to drop the odd bit of popcorn, like tipping the waiter after a particularly good meal.

Anton Ego, the restaurant critic of The Grim Eater, is one of the greatest performances of Peter O'Toole's career.

The animation is superb, the vocal work flawless, the script witty, the central conflict between family ties and the pursuit of excellence subtly handled.
October 10, 2007
Occasionally inspired, but mostly trivial and pointless.

It's always been Pixar's boast that it keeps its computers in their place -- at the service of the story -- and with Ratatouille, it has proved it yet again.
August 31, 2007
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.

Ratatouille is a veritable feast for the eye and the ear. Don't miss it.
July 16, 2007
In Ratatouille, the level of moment-by-moment craftsmanship is a wonder.
July 6, 2007
I think Brad Bird is working on another level than most animated writer/directors.
June 30, 2007
The original writer and director of Ratatouille, Jan Pinkava, was replaced in midproduction and, for all the exquisite detail, the movie is missing a dash of heart.
June 30, 2007
This delicious tale of a rat who cooks is pure joy, a grand achievement -- one of the most beautiful animated pictures ever made.

Ratatouille doesn't center on the over-familiar surfaces of contemporary life. It harks back to Disney's older era, when cartoons seemed part of a more elegant world with less edgy characters.
June 29, 2007
Had Bird gone the safe route, he would have robbed us of a great new cartoon figure in Remy, who like the rest of the film is rendered with animation that is at once fanciful and life-like. It's also my pick for Pixar's best.
June 29, 2007
From the moment Remy enters, crashing, to the final happy fadeout, Ratatouille parades the brio and depth that set Pixar apart from and above other animation studios.
June 29, 2007
How good, and how much fun, is Ratatouille? So good that when it was over, all I wanted to do was watch it again.
June 29, 2007
This is an animated movie that's been made for adults, although kids probably will enjoy it, too.
June 29, 2007
Ratatouille never overwhelms, even though it's stocked with action, romance, historical content, family drama and serious statements about the creation of art.
June 29, 2007
A film as rich as a sauce béarnaise, as refreshing as a raspberry sorbet, and a lot less predictable than the damn food metaphors and adjectives all us critics will churn out to describe it. OK, one more and then I'll be done: it's yummy.
