    Synopsis


    Ratatouille
    A scrawny rat named Remy (voice of Patton Oswalt) finds his dreams of culinary superstardom stirring up sizable controversy in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant in director Brad Bird's madcap computer-animated comedy. It's hard being a rat with culinary aspirations, but Remy is convinced he has what it takes to break the stereotypes and follow in the footsteps of star chef Auguste Gusteau (voice of Brad Garrett). As fate would have it, Remy is currently situated in the sewers directly beneath Gusteau's elegant restaurant. Soon Remy teams up with a young chef with little talent named Linguini (voice of Lou Romano). Together they are able to create some fabulous dishes, but they live in fear that someone will discover their secret and object strenuously to a rat being in a kitchen. When Remy's passion for cooking turns the haughty world of French cuisine upside down, the rat who would be king of the kitchen learns important lessons about life, friends, and family while questioning whether he should pursue his culinary calling or simply go back underground and return to his life as a sewer rat. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A gustatory journey through Paris

      Ratatouille, from Pixar and Brad Bird (The Incredibles and The Iron Giant), is a rat's-eye view of the gastronomic delights of fine cuisine (the name itself is a pun on the classic French roast vegetable dish ratatouille). Remy is a young rat who discovers that he has a heightened sense of taste and smell, and becomes inspired by the late television chef Auguste Gusteau (Brad Garrett), whose motto "anyone can cook" now extends to rats, too. Remy begins to experiment with combining classic combinations of flavor and texture, herbs, and other ingredients, until his clan is forced to flee their country safehouse. During the traumatic escape, Remy is separated from his family. The ghost of Chef Gusteau appears to Remy when he is discouraged, inspiring him to cook at Gusteau's formerly-five star restaurant. The acid restaurant critic Anton Ego (Peter O'Toole) made it his personal mission to write a scathing review of Gusteau's that stripped it of one of its Michelin stars, consigning it to the tourist trade. Now, the restaurant is under the iron fist of the shady, domineering Head Chef Skinner (Ian Holm). Remy befriends the bumbling, couldn't-boil-water-if-his-life-depended-on-it Alfredo Linguini, whom Skinner grudgingly adopted as the new garbage boy, and Remy and Linguini team up to create culinary delights that astound the normally staid French restaurant critics. Remy controls Linguini by hiding under his chef's toque and tugging on two strands of hair (the scenes of Remy perfecting his technique with a blindfolded Linguini wielding dangerous tools and messy ingredients are priceless). Toss in a handful of intrigue, kitchen highjinks, father-son bonding, a dash of romance with the formidable chef Colette, and plenty of culinary delights, and you have Ratatouille. The 3D animation is photorealistic, and 360 shots of nighttime Paris entrance. Small touches really capture the Bohemian feel of the Montmartre district, and the soundtrack features (brief) snippets of La Marseillaise, light and airy French themes, and French-language vocals by Camille (the standalone soundtrack Ratatouille is available for purchase). As with The Incredibles, there's lots to keep kids engaged (although the scene with the window full of dead rats might be traumatic for very young kids), and a whole other layer of adult humor bubbling under the surface, so mom and dad will be able to enjoy Ratatouille with gusto.

      This is one of the best animated features ever made. PIXAR outdid themselves with this one. Ratatouille tells the tale of a rat named Remy who dreams of being a chef and a guy named Linguini who finds direction with Remy's help. This may sound bizarre, but the story is told brilliantly with a great deal of emotion. Excellent balance of humor and drama. It's perfect for children and adults, excellent family viewing. As with any PIXAR film, the animation is astounding. Everything is superbly rendered and fluidly animated. The ainmation really shines with the Blu-Ray transfer, everything is crystal clear and in very sharp focus. Yet another flawless HD experience from Disney. The extras chronicle the making of the film, including input from real life chefs and even some reference footage of pet rats. There's also a coking game where you try to follow recipies and keep up with demand. There are also two animatred shorts. 'Lifted', which was shown in theaters with Ratatouille, is the story of an alien who struggles to pass his 'Human Abduction' test and 'You're friend the Rat!', a great show hosted by Remy and his brother Emile about the natural history of the rat. Your friend the Rat features old-school 2D animation reminscent of the animation Ward Kimble created for 'Walt Disney Presents'. Remy and Emile sing a nice song and try to convince you that Humans and Rats can live in harmony. This is one of PIXAR's all-time best and is the kind of movie you can watch over and over again. A perfect movie for the entire family to watch and an essential for any Blu-Ray collection.

      Pixar serves yet another classic up

      Posted
      huskysilverdog

      Another classic has been added to the Pixar list. This time the story follows a rat who feels differently about being a rat than his family. He and his father have two opposing views on what they are eating and the humans. One day while searching for ingredients in the kitchen, where his father told him not to be specifically, he was caught. This leads to the discovery of the colony, where all the rats live. They are forced out and separated from one another. Now that the rat is alone, he feels he might have a chance to live a life that his father warned him against: a chef. Granted it would be difficult for a rat to be a chef for humans without a little help, and so he befriends a human who has no cooking talent to become a great team. This movie is a wonderful story. You might say that a rat controlling a person by tugging on his hair might just be a touch unreal, but it being an animated film opens up a few more possibilities. There is a thought behind the story, and is taught throughout the film several times. This thought is the fact that anyone can do anything. If they had done the film about a person who eventually becomes a successful chef, it would not have had the same impact on the audience. But, by using a rat, (let’s face it, a rat isn’t high on the food chain or thought of well by people) it conveys a little better.

      Amazing effects, great story

      This fun movie gives a unique perspective on how no matter who we are, we can accomplish amazing things. The music and effects and general color theme (lots of shadows and dark colors) enhance the story line and the concept of the need for the rats to hide. The rats are well-drawn and look and move like rats. The clarity of audio and video is Bluray-amazing. I'd give it five stars, but having caught my share of mice in real life, and seeing how realistic the rats look and move, I found myself watching the movie in that lens and cringing every time even the hero rat gets anywhere near food... This is not your Disney Cinderella cute-mouse movie, this is a real rat movie. Still, for its unique perspective on a worn-out Disney theme (you can do whatever you put your mind to no matter who you are), I recommend it as part of a video library.

      Great Family Fun

      A cooking rat. As one who appreciates irony, I figured this was a movie I was NOT going to want to miss. Crafted by the same team who's brought us movies such as Cars, Toy Story, and The Incredibles (which I'm STILL waiting for on Bluray, I might add!), I knew the chances of being disappointed were slim to none. Boy, was I right! From the very intro to the movie, you can see Remy's story starting to build. His drive to become what he loves most is so strong, his rodent status is almost a non-issue to him- only humans persist in reminding him! As his friendship with Linguini progresses, you do start to wish the story would move a little faster, but at no time does it really drag. Ratatouille is a truly charming movie and one that I will no doubt watch again and again for some time (especially because of how much much my girlfriend loves it)!

      Great Movie

      Posted
      texansfan5

      Ratatouille was a great movie to watch. Our kids loved it and so did we. Overall, the movie is definitely a different story as I wondered how a movie about a rat would be entertaining. It has a very unique story but all in all very entertaining. If you have read any of my other reviews, you will once again be amazed by the animation specifically on a Blu Ray player. The clarity of the animation is so vivid it looks three dimensional. The only downside to the movie was most likely due to our kids age. At certain points of the movie, my kids started to lose interest as I think they didn't quite understand what was going on. But they still love watching it over and over so not too big of a concern.

      There's a rat in the kitchen - But it's fun

      Posted
      Dexter999

      This is just great! This is a tale of an energetic French rodent who loves to cook. Remy the rat(voiced by comedian Patton Oswalt) is educated and classy. He's crazy about cooking elegant dishes. His brother, Emile (Peter Sohn) and his daddy Django (Brian Dennehy) just hang out in the trash and don't at all approve of Remy's culinary ambitions and his behavior. After a terrible cooking accident, the rats are evicted and escape through the sewers. Remy is separated from his family. He ends up in Paris. Of course, he ends up near a kitchen. Where else? He sneaks in and works on some soup. Making it absolutely great. This is truly a fun-filled story that you won't want to miss. Highly recommended.
