A rat who can cook makes an unusual alliance with a young kitchen worker at a famous Paris restaurant.
Rated G, mild violence

A rat poses as a chef by controlling a human like a puppet.

I'm a fan of Pixar in general, but this one in particular just doesn't do anything for me. I mean, it's not as bad as Cars by a long shot. But there's something about the story that rubs me the wrong way; the best I can do to pin it down is to say it felt sit-com-ish. But it's funny and fast paced and kind of cute, and the animation is all kinds of good, so whatever. ( )

The concept was interesting and the story and animation basically well-done, but I had some problems with the principles and development. The boy never actually learned to cook, and the rat's back-story should have included some reference to the dish ratatouille before he decided that was the one to risk his 'career' on. ( )

Remy, a resident of Paris, appreciates good food and has quite a sophisticated palate. He would love to become a chef so he can create and enjoy culinary masterpieces to his heart's delight. The only problem is, Remy is a rat. When he winds up in the sewer beneath one of Paris' finest restaurants, the rodent gourmet finds himself ideally placed to realize his dream.
