I didn't think I would enjoy a movie about rats, but Ratatouille was very enjoyable. I, being a curmudgeon myself, especially liked the Anton Ego, "The Grim Eater," character. The film was an odd mixture of making me hungry with tantalizing dishes, and disgusted with rats. :)
Even so I would recommend this film to anyone who does not have a fear of rats. Sorry mom, this film is not for you.
