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.

(at around 1h 17 mins) During the press conference, an irritated Remy, hiding in Linguini's toque, yanks on Linguini's hair with his left paw, causing Linguini to hit himself in the left side of the head with one of the two copper pans he's holding up for photographers. However, Linguini has his arms crossed in front of his face at that moment, and thus hits himself with the pan being held in his right arm, not his left. From what we know of how Remy controls Linguini's arms by hair tugging, Remy would have to have used his right paw for that movement, not his left. 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!
