As a big fan of the studio’s work, I had some pretty high expectations going into the movie tonight. In the end, I was not disappointed. Was it the best Pixar movie? No. Was it better than almost all of the garbage coming out of Hollywood these days? Yes. The combination of incredible animation and solid storyline along with intelligent and humorous writing make this movie a hit.
Instead of being predominantly for children, Ratatouille (like the rest of Pixar’s projects) appeals to “grown-ups” first, knowing that kids will love the animation and characters as well. If you are looking for mindless eye candy for children, check out the Shrek series. However, if you are interested in seeing an entertaining, witty, and worthwhile movie, definitely check out Ratatouille.
