Ratatouille is a charming 2007 animated feature about a country rat with culinary dreams. Remy (voice by Patton Oswalt) lives the ordinary life of a country rat but has extraordinary gifts of scent and palette. He idolizes the great Parisian chef, Auguste Gusteau (voice by Brad Garrett). When fate delivers him to the sewers outside the great chef's restaurant shortly after his death, Remy takes residence in the place just as Linguini (voice by Lou Romano), begins working there. When Linguini clumsily spills the evening's soup and tries to replace the lost portions with a random mixture of ingredients, Remy sneaks over to the stove and creates a delicious concoction. The recipe impresses and a collaboration is born between the bumbling Linguini and the talented rat. In spite of the head chef Skinner's (Ian Holm) attempts to fire the troublesome Linguini, the restaurants customers love the new cuisines and the esteemed restaurant critic Anton Ego (voice by Peter O'Toole) may reinstate the Gusteau restaurant to its former five-star glory. Written and directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles) and Jan Pinkava, this delightful tale can be enjoyed by both children and adults alike.
