Favorite Movie: Ratatouille

Who would have thought that a movie about a rat would become my #1 favorite movie? Not me. But now it’s one of the few movies that I can watch more than once per year. Click on the below video to watch a brief trailer:


My 2 year old son and I watched this movie the other night, for perhaps the 50th  time (or close to that), and I realized that I just had to share this on my blog! Not only is it full of comedy and adventure, but it’s inspiring too. Come on, if a rat can become the best chef in France, then you and I can accomplish anything!

If you have a pulse and a sense of humor, you’ll be laughing from beginning to end. You may also want to take up cooking as a hobby. And oh how this makes me homesick for Paris! This film won an Oscar for “Best Animated Feature Film”, so that should tell you something. If you’ve seen this movie, leave a comment below to let me know how you liked it. If you haven’t seen it, then go rent it as quickly as you can!

If you’re interested, here’s a brief synopsis:

“Remy is a young rat in the French countryside who arrives in Paris, only to find out that his cooking idol is dead. When he makes an unusual alliance with a restaurant’s new garbage boy, the culinary and personal adventures begin despite Remy’s family’s skepticism and the rat-hating world of humans.”

    I love that movie. We watch it several times a year.

  2. 2

    I agree with you! Very inspiring! I have to say, however, I did have a hard time wrapping my brain around watching such a dirty creature hang out in the kitchen! Haha! I got over it, though! It made for a VERY CUTE MOVIE!!!

    In the very impressive Pixar cannon, I also think Ratatouille is awesome. I can never decide if Wall-E or Ratatouille is better.

  4. 5

    Ratatouille is not my favorite, but I think it’s very clever, right down to the name: Ratatouille, obviously, is a French dish, made of zucchini, tomatoes, onions, etc…but if you write it like this:

    Rat à touille, then it takes on a whole new meaning: the verb touiller means to stir or to toss…so it becomes a rat that stirs/tosses. Clever, eh?
