This is a film about a rat who becomes a chef in Paris. But it's so much more than that. It's about what a great artist can be, where a great artist can come from, it's about food and how to savour it.

Ratatouille is a wonderful, wistful comedy, and a sparkling return to form for the computer animation studio Pixar after last year's lacklustre Cars.

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

A comedy that relates realistically to life, fashioned not with dozens of hilarious jokes but with due regard for proper storytelling.

Clever, certainly; ingenious, occasionally; enjoyable - hardly ever.

Purveys huge charm, enough to make you fall in love with the rat species and enough, with its array of screen dishes, to make America forgive France, re-dub freedom fries as French fries, and fall sobbing on the country's cordon bleu shoulders.

Director Brad Bird has created a Pixar movie that's a joy to behold.

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.

That feeling you have as you leave the cinema - that buzzing in the fingers and lightness in the heart - is called joy.

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.

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.

In Ratatouille, the level of moment-by-moment craftsmanship is a wonder.

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

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.

This delicious tale of a rat who cooks is pure joy, a grand achievement -- one of the most beautiful animated pictures ever made.
