I saw Ratatouille today, a special sneak preview. It was amazing, even better than I was hoping it would be! I hate to say it, but for me the standout performances came from the two human "villains" (only one of them was really a villain in the traditional sense). The surprisingly downbeat (but still happy) ending made a pleasant change from the standard Hollywood fare. The climax, a touching celebration of rat unity even after Remy's disturbing efforts to become more human, made me cry. The movie deserves more viewings, and it will certainly get them.
