    What makes Ratatouille such a hilarious and heartfelt wonder is the way Bird contrives to let it sneak up on you. show more

    Like the best French cuisine, Ratatouille is ambitious and delightful. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The characters are irresistible -- why would anyone want to resist a hero who so gallantly transcends his rattiness? -- the animation is astonishing and the film, a fantasy version of a foodie rhapsody, sustains a level of joyous invention that hasn't been seen in family entertainment since "The Incredibles." show more

    Remy, the little rat who stars in the big, beautiful, funny Ratatouille, isn't gross at all. In fact, he's adorable. show more

    This is clearly one of the best of the year's films. Every time an animated film is successful, you have to read all over again about how animation isn't "just for children" but "for the whole family," and "even for adults going on their own." No kidding! show more

    Its sense of humor is more sly, more sophisticated and more interesting than most PG-13 or R-rated comedies at the moment. The film may be animated, and largely taken up with rats, but its pulse is gratifyingly human. show more

    If there is a genius working in Hollywood today, it's animation director Brad Bird, who tops the delightful "The Incredibles" with arguably the finest 'toon in the Pixar canon, Ratatouille. show more

    My favorite Pixar movie, and left me feeling good. Highly enjoyable, and had some great symbolism between rats and people. Ratatouille, like lots of other pixar movies, had a meaning and a message. and I believe that movies that have meanings, and messages are usually the better ones. I would be willing to watch this movie numbers of times.

    A must see for parents and children alike. Peter O'Toole is hilarious in his funny rendition of 'popular'. Kids will want to watch it over and parents will watch it with kids not around.

    I know you might think that this movie is childish, (and by the way, I'm a little girl) but this movie is absolutely stunning! The main character, Remy, who is a mouse, wants to become a chef. Linguini, a garbage boy in a famous restaurant. Linguini finds Remy, and Remy agrees to help Linguini become a chef. In return, Linguini gives Remy a home. (Remy had been separated from his family earlier in the movie) The boss of the restaurant is very mean, but he then gets thrown out. The former boss talks to a VERY picky food critic, and persuades him to come to the restaurant. Everyone is nervous because they need to get a good review. So----- Oh wait, I shouldn't ruin the movie for you if you haven't seen it. If you want to know what happens, watch the movie! Does Remy find his family? What does he do if he finds his family? Will Linguini tell his secret (that a mouse is doing the cooking for him)?

    As the owner of 4 real life pet domesticated rats, I never saw it in the theaters, but have recently bought Ratatouille on video. I find it to be an utter delight and praise the animation for making some of the rats' movements rather realistic, yet still "magical", and the rest of the animation too as well. Also loved the clever plot as it was indeed delightful!
