Ratatouille, a vegetable dish, is a CGI film about a rat named "Little Chef" with aspirations to become a world class chef. Through an accidental meeting "Little Chef" accidentally becomes an actual chef. Show of hands, how many of you would like your food cooked by a rat. No one. That’s what I thought.

"Little Chef" eager to leave his family and live on his own, told his dad, "Eventually a bird’s gotta leave the nest.” His dad responded, “Were not birds. We're rats. We don’t leave our nests. We make them bigger”

The film had entertaining moments and made strong references to gourmet food. However, as cute as they made the rat, I just could not get pass the fact a rat was cooking meals consumed to humans.

Towards the end, there is a scene in the kitchen that screams rat overkill, pardon the pun. This movie had haute cuisine elements, subject matter that will fly right over kids' heads, as it is a highbrow merger of gourmet food and kids animation. It also reminded me too much of the British sitcom "Chef."

Considering it is a kids film the line, "He was fired for messing around with the ringmaster’s daughter” could have been left out of it.
