Ratatouille Movie Review

A rat named Remy dreams of becoming a great French chef despite his family's wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau. Despite the apparent dangers of being an unlikely - and certainly unwanted - visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant, Remy's passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down. A storyline only Disney Pixar could come up with don?t you think?

Over the past few years Disney?s animation movies have been hit and miss like Chicken Little and The Wild which failed to impress just about every critic out there while at the same time seem to produce dazzlers such as Finding Nemo and The Incredibles. Because of this their reputation as the best animators in the world have been hit heavily as Dreamworks Animation and Studio Gibli have begin to turn up the heat on Disney. Would this film be a dud or a massive success only a trip to the cinema with the family could tell.

Sitting in the cinema with my family I was itching to know whether the film would be childish and immature or a film with entertainment for the family like it says. Though before the film began I was excited to see there would be an short animated film which Pixar are famous for. Titled ?Lifted? it is a sci-fi comedy based around an young alien taking his ?Human Abduction Test? under the supervision of a fat podgy alien. Although the comedy was fairly slapstick it was fairly humorous and I did laugh quite a bit. Then finally the film began after the hours and hours of trailers they show these days, god damn advertisers stick to the TV you cocks!!!

To summarize this film in one word it has got to be ?Surprise.? this film is should be put up on the shelf next to Spirited Away and Toy Story as one of the best animation movies ever. Although some concepts of the film were stupid and down right idiotic it was made for children as well so I suppose it was aloud. The comedy aspect of it were suitable for all ages although some technical parts of the movie will confuse the younger viewers. Characters were well done with variation each given their own description and the Villains were just pure genius. Only a film like this could get away with a villain being a lanky food critic and how great was he.

Overall this film is pure animated brilliance and should be watched by anyone who enjoys going to the cinema. The meaning of the film is ?Big actor names are not needed to make a good film.? 100% with the only big name being Peter O?Toole this film shows all the other animations using huge Hollywood name that they are not needed. I wrote this review because we care about food!

If i were to sum this movie up in one word it would have to be "Different". Will Ferrell before this movie was only known for his laugh out loud humour but when you see him in this film he will suprise you as much as he suprised me...

For twelve years, the methodic IRF agent Harold Crick (Will Ferrel) has had a routine lonely life guided by his wristwatch. However, one day he hears the narration of his life in off, telling that he is going to die pretty soon. Harold is advised by Professor Jules Hilbert (Hoffman) to change his monotonous lifestyle while he tries to find Karen Eiffel (Thompson), the author of the story of his life, who is researching means of killing the character, and convince her to change the ending of the story.

Back to Will Ferrell, this movie did for him, what "The Truman Show" did for Jim Carrey and that was show a genious comedy actor how to put in an alternative aspect to ones career. Nowadays you can see Jim Carrey in such movies as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (One of the best films of the 21st Century) and The Number 23 (One of the worst films of the 21st Century). Lets just hope Will Farrell goes from strength to strength and makes some top of the line films in the future.

Although Will Farrell steals the show other actors and actresses in the film pull out great performances like Emma Thompson as the Author suffering from writers block. The way she interacts with Queen Latifah's character is hillarious and the line used in the hospital is by far the funniest thing in the whole film.

Dissapointing, hmmm, dissapointing well for once i can't even think about anything majorly wrong with a film? The film could of used a bit of tuning up on the overall front and to have a bit of an improvement for the ending to make me push my rating up to 5 star but the film is just fine the way it is.

So in conclusion i believe this film is very entertaining and is one that should be watched on a saturday night next to the one you love. A light hearted story to make anyone feel good about themselves.
