Runtime: 1 hour, 51 minutes
A rat named Remy dreams of becoming a great French chef despite his family's wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau. Despite the apparent dangers of being an unlikely - and certainly unwanted - visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant...

It's a stroke of genius like much of Pixar's body of work.
It still doesn't get the appreciation it deserves though. The film tells the story of a rat called Remy (voiced by Patton Oswalt) who dreams of being a chef.
Remy and Linguini's success is threatened by Gusteau's current head chef, Skinner (voiced by Ian Holm) and a nasty food critic named Anton Ego (flawlessly voiced by the late Peter O'Toole). Disney Pixar really knocked it out of the park here, creating a world of rats with human sensibilities without forgetting the real place that rats have in human society.
