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. As fate would have it, Remy is currently situated in the sewers directly beneath Gusteau's elegant restaurant. Soom Remy teams up with a young chef with little talent. 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, All Movie Guide

Excellent! by MBreslau November 26, 2012 - 6:07 AM PST
The story is good; the CGI Animation is excellent; the voice acting is fine. The background sure looks a lot like Paris.
What's not to like? My wife and I have seen it three times; expect to see it again and again yet. Yes, we liked The Incredibles too.
Great work, Pixar!

Not enough Rat by ChefCFP April 20, 2008 - 5:46 PM PDT

I watched this with my teenage son, who also loved Bird's The Incredibles, so we had high hopes for this movie. Unfortunately, we both found the main character (the human Linguini) is unlikeable and charmless, and the more interesting characters (mostly rats- Remy, Emile, the father rat, as well as the human critic Anton voiced by Peter OToole) get short thrifted. The animation was also lacking- we both found the animation (hand drawn) of the rats during the closing credits more lively and interesting than that during the movie itself. Finally, the short "Lifted" is too mean for small children- presumably the target audience of this film. I'd skip this and re-rent the virtually perfect The Incredibles for a fun family evening.
