Retro Ratatouille Review | What’s New Disney Plus
A rat dreams of becoming a world-class chef and gets the chance to live out that dream by controlling a helpless restaurant worker in the 2007 Pixar movie, “Ratatouille.” Remy has a unique skill for a rat that leads his father to task him with sniffing the poison, but once he is separated from his family and ends up in Paris, he goes to the restaurant that belonged to his hero. He befriends the new worker, Linguini, who just wants a job but has no interest in cooking. Eventually, he controls Linguini’s movements, helps him cook, and discovers that Linguini is the rightful owner of the restaurant. The pair then team up to impress the toughest critic in town before the restaurant is closed due to rats.
It’s definitely one of Pixar’s weirdest entries, which says something when you talk about a studio that’s made movies about toys that come to life, monsters scaring kids for electricity, and a world integer composed only of cars. But it’s still great fun. The unlikely friendship between Remy and Linguini is great and you can’t help but laugh as Remy tries to learn how to help Linguini, first by biting him before learning he can control Linguini’s arms by pulling his hair. Plus, the feisty Collette is amazing because you can tell she’s earned her place in a world that’s considered male only, but she also clearly sees Linguini as someone different from the mean men who tried her. hold it instead of helping to lift it. at the top.
It’s the second Pixar film released after Disney officially purchased the studio in 2006, and it helps guide the studio as an official Disney property. Disney has always been great with rodents. We all know and love Mickey and Minnie Mouse, but the two movies “Rescuers” and Timothy Mouse in “Dumbo” proved just how great Disney is with mice. While I’m sure most of the production on this film was completed before the acquisition was completed, it’s still a great story about a rat from a Disney property.
Even though I’m very positive about this movie, I have to admit that I just like it, I don’t like it. I have fun every time I see it, but it’s not a Pixar movie I’m rushing to rewatch. It’s a high-quality movie with great voice work, and I’m grateful it doesn’t take itself too seriously like a few other Pixar movies, later on, but I still find myself loving it. Objectively, it’s better than a lot of movies that I like more. But, subjectively, I have more fun with other Pixar movies.
Rating: 3.5 stars
