Our Score
The winner of the 2007 best animated feature Oscar from Pixar (home of Toy Story, Monsters, Inc and The Incredibles) measures up to, if not quite surpasses, the best of that animation stable. Here, a country rat with a gift for haute cuisine ends up saving the bacon - actually, the soup - of the garbage boy at Paris's finest restaurant. Together, they set out to fulfil each other's culinary dreams. Though it's a wee bit on the long side, this fast-moving, wholesome comedy nevertheless has some absolutely brilliant comic turns, the highlight being Peter O'Toole as Anton Ego, the tough, bitter food critic (who, rather disconcertingly, looks like Will Self). Working with a tight, well-judged script and sensational animation that makes you want to go home and cook - as well as be nicer to rodents - director Brad Bird delivered the best family comedy of that year.


A rat finds his love of fine food has made him an outcast to his less discerning family. Separated from his fellow rodents by a storm, he winds up in a famous French restaurant, where he helps an incompetent kitchen assistant become the greatest chef in Paris. Pixar animated comedy from the director of The Incredibles, with the voices of Patton Oswalt, Ian Holm, Lou Romano and Peter O'Toole.
