Ratatouille (2007)


Movie Review

Directed by: Brad Bird

Starring: Patton Oswalt, Lou Romano, Ian Holm, Janeane Garofalo, Peter O’Toole, Brian Dennehy, Peter Sohn, Brad Garrett, and Will Arnett

A teenage rat named Remy (Patton Oswalt) has some rather unique gifts for a rodent.  He’s got strong senses of smell and taste.  His gifts are suited for the culinary arts, and he wants to use this talent to become a chef.  He even idolizes the late chef Auguste Gusteau.  His family, however, only leverages his talent to find rat poison.  When he gets separated from his family in the sewers of Paris, Remy finds himself at a French restaurant where Alfredo Linguini (Lou Romano), the son of Gusteau’s former lover, works.  Linguini, a garbage boy at the restaurant, can’t actually cook that well.  He spills a pot of soup and tries to recreate the delectable magic put together by an actual chef.  He fails miserably, but Remy helps fill the void by cooking an amazing pot of soup.  After this, a beautiful friendship begins as Remy and Linguini take a full-time position as a chef at the restaurant.  While cooking, Linguini is the puppet, while Remy is the master.

Ratatouille is arguably the most creative animated Disney film since The Lion King.  Full of nonstop laughs and beautiful animation, you’ll love this film from start to finish.  Ratatouille gets a sober rating.  Don’t miss this one!
