The beauty of the animation, and a clever story with a big heart, makes Ratatouille one of the best films I've seen this year. Creative, funny, witty and goofy, this is the most original thing I've seen from Pixar since Monster's, Inc. Remy is a rat who yearns to cook, and finds a way with Linguini, a kitchen helper with no clue. A creative premise has Remy calling the shots, making Linguini look like a culinary genius. Though I saw this today with a group of kids who cheered at the end, I think adults may enjoy this film more than the kids. I thought it was charming, funny and a visual feast. *chuckle* A cute short called Lifted (Oscar nominated) was show before the film, very funny stuff!
