All foodies, young and old should spend an evening with Remy, a French wannabe chef, who just happens to be a rat. Although he grew up in a family that believed in eating garbage, Remy has a dream. He was born with a palate for the finer things in life.
Unfortunately, his father and the rest of his ratty community doesn't understand, and Remy is an outcast. When he ends up in Paris, he stumbles across Gasteau's restaurant, where he secretly fixes a soup made by the inept sous-chef named Linguini.
Boy and rat team up in hopes of becoming the greatest of all French chefs. But will they be able to hide from Remy's rat family, the sleazy owner of the restaurant, and the fearsome food critic Anton Ego?
Pixar's Ratatouille is a don't-miss foodie film for the whole family. If you have passed this one by because you're not a fan of animation or if you thought it would be geared to too young of an audience, think again. Whip up a batch of ratatouille to quiet the food critics in your house, pour yourself some great wine, and then sit down to watch this charming movie.
