A rat named Remy dreams of becoming a great French chef despite his family's wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau. Despite the apparent dangers of being an unlikely - and certainly unwanted - visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant, Remy's passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down.

The brand of motorcycle that Colette rides, as evidenced by the logo on the gas tank, is Calamari - in reference to a dish made from squid, or the Italian word for squid. A "squid" is a term for a rider of sport motorcycles, usually young men, who relish emulating famous racers on public highways, and quite often have battle scars on both their bodies and on their bikes. It originally was a derogatory term, but now squids proudly wear the label. "Team Calamari" is often seen on bumper stickers and t-shirts, often accompanied by wild Ed "Big Daddy" Roth style caricatures. Colette's bike itself is styled after a Ducati (an Italian make) Hailwood Replica. See more »

A fantastic story that adds to Pixar's stellar reputation
I checked out a sneak preview of Ratatouille last night, and I must say I truly loved this movie. Everything from the animation to the score to the voice acting to the story (and especially the story) was EXCELLENT.
I don't know if it appeals to kids as much as other Pixar offerings, but this one upholds their legacy of excellence.
Casting Patton Oswalt as Remy was PERFECT. The rest of the voice cast was outstanding as well...including Pixar "house voice" John Ratzenberger. See if you can tell which guy he is without foreknowledge (as in, don't read the cast list).
Michael Giacchino's score was as perfect for this story as the award-winning one he created for "The Incredibles" and the incredible music he has created for most of J.J. Abrams' recent projects, including "Alias" and "Lost".
Even with my 3-year-old son making it really hard to concentrate, and our "we got to the theater late and had to sit up front" seats, this movie was fantastic. Everyone should go see it, even if they don't have kids.
Brad Bird - you done right by us movie fans again...Ratatouille is great!
