"Unique And Unmissable."
-Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
From the creators of Cars and The Incredibles comes a breakthrough 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.
I know I'm a bit biased - being a rat lover and all - but this is by far Pixar's best film to date. The animation is stunningly gorgeous - such fine detail and rich coloration. The characters are funny and lovable. And, for the children, there are great lessons to be learned about chasing your dreams - no matter what obstacles may cross your path, but also lessons about acceptance and tolerance. About not judging others by your preconceptions.
Oh, and did I mention those rats are freakin' adorable?
Rated G (MPAA)
