View Full Version : Has anyone seen Ratatouille?

10-17-2007, 09:49 AM
I keep hearing comments like "It's the best Pixar film ever!", which I find amazing given that Pixar have already made classics such as "Finding Nemo" and "Toy Story 2".

Is it definately worth going to the cinema to see it?

I would appreciate any comments :)

Ive not seen it yet, but I think we'll take the girls during the half term break.
When I first saw it advertised I wasnt too sure about it, but after going to WDW in April and saw some of the animation and the making of it, I ve changed my mind and Im looking forward to seeing it.

i saw it sunday and i have to say i was very impressed. it was very funny, and the animation just keeps getting better! some of it is just so real!
as for being the bes ever, well that down to your own personal opinion i guess - my all time fave was finding nemo and my worst pixar was toy story 2 with everything else coming roughly in the middle!... all depends what you like i guess...

We saw it in Florida and thought it was the worse Pixar film we'd seen. Even DS (10) and DD (9) weren't impressed and don't want to see it again here

I saw it in August *and thought it was funny and well scripted and of course technically perfect as you expect, it wasn't as funny as Toy story or Monsters inc, but there is a story there and a bit of a love story, and I like the little detective person who is a bit like the policeman after the pink panther in those films and the best character the Restaurant critic who can destroy any restaurant, being the biggest fan. Worth a watch.

* PS not pirate, but on the day of release on the Disney Magic also saw Underdog not out here yet.

I loved it, DH was inbetween. It's not a comedy, it's a very grown up movie in some ways.
The animation is absolutely jaw-dropping. The characters are memorable and Remy is adorable.

Well, looks like one of those films that opinion is mixed, so I guess I'll have to go and see it.

Thanks! :)

not yet I am soooo hoping it will be out when its my boys birthday on the 18th November. I seriously doubt it will. I can only hope!

There's a video podcast in the itunes store with the trailers, teasers etc.

Having said that I can't seem to open any of the episodes.

Have you tried the website I think they're on there as well.

It's fantastic, my favourite Pixar film! Remy is so adorable.

10-22-2007, 05:20 AM
I saw it yesterday, it was OK, not the best pixar but as someone else said the restaurant critic was a very good character.

10-22-2007, 06:57 AM
DD found it a bit long and although I enjoyed it I wouldn't say it was anywhere close to being my Fav Pixar. The characters were good but I'm not a big fan of rats which didn't help ;)

10-22-2007, 07:23 AM
We are off to see it this afternoon :goodvibes

10-22-2007, 07:32 AM
I'm going to get it in Florida when it is released on DVD in November:thumbsup2

10-22-2007, 11:28 AM
I liked it, Remy is so cute. Not my favourite Disney/Pixar movie but close to it.

10-22-2007, 11:53 AM
saw it this afternoon, kids liked it, youngest wriggled a bit, was too long definately, I thought it was ok but i didn't love it, the animation was top quality though.

Yes, I saw it earlier this year and was totally unimpressed. Found it long winded and boring.
Not impressed at all. Then again, maybe I just dont find rats cooking in a french restaraunt appealing or different from the norm... :rotfl:

10-22-2007, 02:49 PM
I'm not sure whether I fancy this one. Will probably wait till it comes out on dvd:thumbsup2

Saw it yesterday.

Not pixar's best, not enough fun to keep kids entertained and not enough of those slight enuendos to keep the adults amused.

The quality of animation is excellent, but the story feels a bit samey. 'You have to follow your dreams and stick by your friends', felt like i had seen it before.

A great family film, if your kids aren't easily distracted (a lot of 11 year olds in the cinema had tuned out by the end and where annoying everyone). Much prefer Toy Story or Monsters Inc. Not in the same league as any of those, or Nemo.

must admit the short film beforehand 'lifted' was another quality production.

I agree, that was funny:goodvibes

Played the PS2 game. VERY GOOD !!!!

10-25-2007, 05:29 AM
I went to see it yesterday. I actually enjoyed the film, and the quality of the animation but it was a bit too "grown up". The short at the beginning was very funny, although the people behind me didn't get what it was until the end which doesn't really matter but I really really really missed the outtakes and/or extra clips at the end which have been at the end of nearly every other pixar film.

Otherwise, it was good.

2 hours does seem a bit long. Our 4 yr old has got a definite attention span for the cinema.

Once he's had enough he stands up in the cinema and shouts 'Mam/Dad - I want to go home now!'.

I think 2 hrs exceeds his limit by about an hour...:sad1:

10-26-2007, 11:16 AM
We've been this afternoon, I'd have to say it was ok, not my fave. Took a while to get going, and an awful lot of children took toilet breaks throughout the film, so it didn't keep them all occupied like other films we've been to see!, and most of the laughter came from the parents :lmao:

10-28-2007, 12:18 AM
I saw it like,in june,because it was in the states,and it was pretty good.It was freaky,though because the rats were going all over the kitchen,but it was good.Here(in the states) its coming out on dvd nov.6.I might buy it.

10-28-2007, 03:50 AM
saw it yesterday.....it was good but not brilliant :)

10-28-2007, 02:55 PM
Off to see it in the morning :)

11-01-2007, 01:13 PM
It's too long and reasonably funny. Very good graphics

11-01-2007, 01:25 PM
Totally agree, way too long, pretty good though, although I'm glad I didn't take really little ones to see it!

11-01-2007, 05:38 PM
Wanting to see it. :) I just need to find the time.. :lmao:
