Ok, so it wasn't ratatouille, but it was an ejoyable film. I liked it. I never read the book, and only watched it because of Emma Watson voicing the princess, but I found myself liking it a lot. Personally, I think the reviews are a little unfair about this movie (I mean, it's not an Oscar-contending movie, it's just a cartoon), but whatever.

What a great movie! I went to see this on a "free movie" morning at the Regal Cinema, and I thought it was great! It was first class all of the way, and what a great story!

I thought it was a stupid short movie. The book is always better. And this movie was terrible!

I am tired of all the subliminal messages I am finding in kids movies, the middle easterners playing the bad rats, saying Soup Day is more important than Christmas, what is going on around here?!?! How come they didn't say Soup Day is more important than Hannukah or Kwanza? The editing was bad. The only thing holding this movie is imagary, nice graphics etc. Sigourney Weaver's voice was

I didn't really see that many adult themes or undercurrents, but the movie overall wasn't that good. The illustrations were amazing but the plot and sideplots were convuluted. The BIGGEST issue we had was that one of the previews was too scarey for my 5 year old who has had trouble going to sleep since. The preview was for a nightmare before christmas-type movie. Certainly wasn't appropriate
