From the creators of CARS and THE INCREDIBLES comes a break-through comedy with something for everyone. With delightful new characters, experience Paris from an all-new perspective. It's "terrific movie making" raves Leonard Maltin of ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT. In one of Paris' finest restaurants, Remy, a determined young rat, dreams of becoming a renowned French chef. Torn between his family's wishes and his true calling, Remy and his pal Linguini set in motion a hilarious chain of events that turns the City of Lights upside down. RATATOUILLE is a treat you'll want to enjoy again and again.
One key point: if you can get over the natural gag reflex of seeing hundreds of rodents swarming over a restaurant kitchen, you will be free to enjoy the glory of Ratatouille, a delectable Pixar hit. Our hero is Remy, a French rat (voiced by Patton Oswalt) with a cultivated palate, who rises from his humble beginnings to become head chef at a Paris restaurant. How this happens is the stuff of Pixar magic, that ineffable blend of headlong comedy, seamless technology, and wonder (in the latter department, this movie's views of nighttime Paris are on a par with French cinema at its most lyrical). Director Brad Bird (The Incredibles) doesn't quite keep all his spinning plates in the air, but the gags are great and the animation amazingly expressive--Remy's shrugs and nods are nimbler than many flesh-and-blood actors can manage. Refreshingly, the movie's characters aren't celebrity-reliant, with the most recognizable voice coming from Peter O'Toole's snide food critic. (This fellow provides the film's sole sour note--an oddly pointed slap at critics, those craven souls who have done nothing but rave about Pixar's movies over the years.) Brad Bird's style is more quick-hit and less resonant than the approach of Pixar honcho John Lasseter, but it's hard to complain about a movie that cooks up such bountiful pleasure. --Robert Horton

For Amazon's part, since my children have a horrible habit of ruining DVDs and since I have a horrible habit of hoarding Disney Pixar films, I love the fact that they've made the special features available on digital download. Finally a way to safeguard my collection.
The setting in Paris is so romantic and lovely. The romance and the adventure of cooking both work plot-wise. The animation is so fluid and colorful with more detail than you usually see in Pixar's repertoire. In fact, I think Ratatouille is the finest film Pixar has ever produced. It is funny and cute. Families will surely enjoy Ratatouille. The kids will love Remy the rat, while the adults will appreciate the more mature themes of family, love, and dreams.
I must mention Camille's musical theme for Ratatouille, "Le Festin" is such a beautiful tribute to French Jazz and Chanson genres. It's a light and airy accompaniment to truly caring Parisian attitude and luxury. Le Festin is like a comfort food all on its own. Michael Giacchino's score is just as thrilling and romantic as Ratatouille's atmosphere and environment.
Lastly, the vocal talents are so fitting and mesmerizing in Ratatouille. Bird really cast apt voice actors for each role. Patton Oswalt just carries the film as Remy. He is thoughtful and sympathetic even though he plays a rat. His existential ruminations are quite charming. Ian Holm is genius as the greedy French Chef Skinner. His mad ravings and hectic delivery with his seedy French accent are captivating. Peter O'Toole's deep soothing voice as Anton Ego exemplify the harsh nature of critics as well as their deep reverence and joy for their chosen area of critique. Brad Garrett pulls of a very different charming and bubbly voice as the late Chef Gusteau.
Many of the other supporting roles are very fun voices such as Lou Romano, Janeane Garofalo, and Will Arnett. But, I have to give respect to Brian Dennehy as Remy's rat father Django. Dennehy gives Django a serious weight and adds much appreciated grounded quality to Ratatouille.
Just watch Ratatouille and have a good time during this animated feast!
It is a very cut throat industry in the real world. Especially for women. It briefly touches on what females have to deal with getting into the industry. Collette she had to scrape and clawed her way up to the top. They certainly showcased this in the movie the types of characters who make up the kitchen staff. It also shows that from humble beginnings can come a chef or cook who has the passion and the ability to take a risk and win over even the most aristocratic pallet.
I highly recommend this movie for children and adults. I know that it inspired me. The direction and animation were amazing. I would love to see another full length feature continuing the story.
