Ratatouille - Movie Review

This is one of the most delightful animated movies I have seen. Remy the rat is a passionate cook and he is inspired by the cookery shows of the great Gustaeu who claims that 'Anyone can cook'. Remy is inspired and starts cooking and discovers that he has a passion and a flair for it. However while watching TV in one of the homes he frequents he is discovered by the cranky old lady who shoots at him. Remy escapes in the river and ends up in Paris.

Shortly he finds himself in Gustaeu's restaurant (who is sadly dead) and who is now succeeded by a man who has no real talent nor passion. This man is also keeping the real heir out of the restaurant. Remy teams up with the young lad and whips up some fabulous dishes as they reclaim all that Gustaeu believed in - including the high ratings from the tough critic Anton Ego. Peter O' Tool speaks and the animation looks exactly like a gentleman I used to know.

Lovely movie. Can watch again.
