Movie Review: Ratatouille

January 5, 2008

MrsDoF and I saw the Disney/Pixar film Ratatouille at the Historic Normal Theater this evening.  You know the story: a rat with a culinary gift becomes the master chef at a French restaurant.  Since I couldn’t figure out how the story was supposed to work, I was prepared to be underwhelmed. 

I was surprised to find that it did work, was funny, and engaging, and very literate, and I liked it.  (I should have known, co-directed by Brad Bird.) If your kids watch it, it might even improve their vocabulary, too.  In the pattern of Incredibles, there was some some inspirational stuff but not too much.  And a bit of romance, but not too much.  Some violence, but not too much. And the animation was not only technically superb but lovingly artistic as one could hope.  Tasty!
