SF elements: talking animals, who cook
Famous chef Gusteau says "anyone can cook". Remy, a rat with exquisite taste, hears this inspirational message, and longs to be a chef. When a catastrophe finds him alone in Paris at Gusteau's original restaurant, he seizes his chance, guiding Linguini the garbage boy into feats of gastronomic delight. But success goes to Linguini's head, and Gusteau's arch-nemesis, food critic Anton Ego, is about to descend on the restaurant. Can Remy save the day?
Yet another delightful Pixar production. Here they manage to make rats --- hordes of rats! --- sympathetic characters. In the usual Pixar way, accompanting the clever animation, there's a good story line, full of ups and downs and twists and turns, and here with added great cuisine.
