    This is my absolute favorite pixar movie!! I don't know what it is about this movie that I love so much. It is just wonderful, and the fact that the main character is a rat makes it even funnier. This movie does always make me hungry though, and someday I too want to eat some ratatouille!

    One of the best Annimated movies ever. Funny, touching and lovable rats. Who would have thought it?

    Cute movie, not groundbreaking but I enjoyed it. I'd have really given it a 3.5, but no option given.

    There's a rat in the kitchen, what am I going to do? I am going to kill that rat thats what I am going to do! That is a line from a UB40 song. It is probably what I would have said before I saw this picture. However, Remy is such a cute little blue rat. I would never think of hurting him. However, in the kitchen of a restaurant. You could tell I was no débutante. ANyhow, my review of this film. I love Pixar animation films. I think they are great. This was no exception. The film had an excellent story with some great themes. Determination, follow your dreams, anyone can cook,hope, friendship,being creative. Cooking, I felt , is a type of art form. It is wondrous to watch as chefs put together these ingredients in such a way as to make something the is both pleasing to the eye as well as the pallet. Ratatouille is very pleasing to the eye. We are introduced to Remy, the young determined rat, as he is trying to combine ingredients in a farm house that he is soon roused out of (see the mo... Read more

    I think that this movie was pretty good it wasn't the best it was just was funny but i didn't really catch my attention or anything. I mean a rat who can cook is like impossible and to me there is like no problem or solution or plot in this movie...

    While it wasn't the most popular Pixar movie of all time, it ranks as one of my favorites! Maybe cause most of the characters are adults in this film. It was a very original and creative story.

    'Ratatouille' had a very nice plot line. It's essentially about a rodent that can cook up a storm and bypass French health laws :)

    cute movie. I can relate to the rat wanting to be a chef. Not very realistic, but what cartoons are? Watching the movie, the only thought that kept running through my head was how unsanitary it was. lol.

    This is a Pixar/Disney-flick about a rat that dreams of not having to steal food, but somehow…acquire it, while wanting to become a chef. The rat’s family is hit by a catastrophe, forcing the rat to end up in Paris, where it by a series of accidents ends up a puppeteering chef. Don’t ask. This film is very Disneyish, letting you know what will happen miles in advance. It tries to combat prejudice while unleashing it; being a rat’s not bad, being French is a walking stereotype. Blah. Boring. Still, this film gives way for a few laughs. It’s predictable and good, but nothing, really, in comparison with “Finding Nemo”. Note: I saw a version where the voices were dubbed by Swedish actors.

    I was just starting to think the Pixar movies were gettin boring (see Cars?) and the wow factor of the realistic animation was losing its impact when this one came out.  It was a pretty good return to form.  I started taking my kids to movies about the time that Toy Story came out and I figured that animation was in a golden age of revival.  But the form fell into the same level of formula that most of Hollywood does when they find something that works.  Fortunately for me the kids are older and I can now drop the kids off at the multiplex and either go get a good cup of coffee or if I'm really lucky there is a cinema that is just a block away from the best used record store in town.

    I have to stipulate, that although I thought Ratatouille was pretty great, I think it didn't necessarily do a great job balancing interesting plot devices for both adults and kids. It sort of felt like 2 different films going on at the same time, with slapstick stuff to keep the kids from crying (I generally see pixar and animated films at midnight to avoid this anyway), with a sort of complex foodie-related plot and threw in some romance to make it a pseudo-date movie I suppose. In any case it's rather charming, if you can get past the scenes with rather realistic looking swarms of rats in the restaurant kitchen :P

    Almost all of the Pixar movies are really enjoyable.  But I'd pick Ratatouille as the best Pixar movie ever because it had a few things going for it that the other movies didn't have.  For one thing, there was less of a reliance on celebrity voices to carry the film.  I think that the earlier Pixar films were more formulaic and relied on a typical Hollywood buddy-picture plotline, whereas Ratatoutille used a form of the classic Cyrano de Bergerac story but with a completely creative and unique retelling.  Also Ratatouille was about French people, and the French are pretty funny.

    Another great film from Pixar. The animation is great and the story is fine. Not the best Pixar film, but still good.

    cute enough movie. but there are better Pixar films.  kind of hard to root for a rat but I do when he takes an interest in cooking and can hear the ghost of the best chef in Paris. he hides out in the chefs restaurant after he dies. he befriends an awkward clean up guy named Linguinni. Remy{ or isit rennie?} hides under the chef cap of linguinni and helps him make these terrific dishes. all along trying avoiding getting caught. charming enough but not a favorite of the Pixar films. still there were still a big audience when we saw it of all ages and they seemed to enjoy the movie like we did.

    I second alpepper's judgement:  Ratatouille isn't Pixar's finest, but it's still quite entertaining. SYNOPSIS:  Rat with enhanced senses dreams of being a chef.  He gets his chance by meeting a clumsy dishwasher.  Insert typical buddy movie story here, complete with chick coming between the friendship.   PROS:  While the scenery is not as dazzling as its predecessors (like Finding Nemo), the setting doesn't lend itself to that atmosphere:  Rats aren't particularly "pretty", and kitchens aren't entirely glamorous.  But, what you will notice is the fine attention to textures in the rendering:  Rendering believable, animated fur on an army of rodents is no small task! CONS:  Storyline is very predictable.  But, then again, it's a kid's flick.  What do you want? OVERALL:  Very endearing, though probably will fade in the background when compared to other Pixar films.

    Middle of the pack Pixar fare.  Better than Monsters Inc. and Cars, but behind Nemo and Toy Story 2.  [Bug's Life is still my all-time Pixar favorite].Ratatouille had a cute storyline and impressive CGI, but it was not particularly funny.  One other gripe: Having once had the onerous (and horrifying) task of deratting our cramped under-the-house crawlspace, I don't find rats cute and endearing.
