Ratatouille is an outstanding movie for young and old. The story reinforces the ideal that you can become whatever you dream of, regardless of who you are and what others are telling you. Remy, the rat aspires to be but is knocked down by society and even his own family. I tell my children all the time "don't ever let anyone tell you that you aren't capable". This great story, with subtle facial expressions, actions, and jokes is complete. If there was a rating above A+ I would award it. This movie knocked The Lion King out of my top animated movie slot.
