At times funny yet filled with cloggy stuff — 5 years ago
This is a Pixar/Disney-flick about a rat that dreams of not having to steal food, but somehow…acquire it, while wanting to become a chef. The rat’s family is hit by a catastrophe, forcing the rat to end up in Paris, where it by a series of accidents ends up a puppeteering chef. Don’t ask. This film is very Disneyish, letting you know what will happen miles in advance. It tries to combat prejudice while unleashing it; being a rat’s not bad, being French is a walking stereotype. Blah. Boring. Still, this film gives way for a few laughs. It’s predictable and good, but nothing, really, in comparison with “Finding Nemo”. Note: I saw a version where the voices were dubbed by Swedish actors.
