While his family is perfectly happy to eat rubbish, Remy the rat has a highly developed taste and he wants to become a chef in Paris. A happy coincidence allows him to attempt just that. Brad Bird and Pixar have turned this wacky premise into a highly entertaining and visually stunning animation. Like Bird's previous film, The Incredibles, this is quite long, but so much smarter and sweeter than most of Pixar's more formulaic output. Patton Oswalt gives a terrific voice performance as Remy. An Academy Award winner for best animated feature.
