This was one of the best-reviewed movies of 2007, right? I thought it was okay. Loved the animation, but the story about the rat becoming a great chef wasn't all that great. The pleas for rat tolerance were a little heavy-handed, too, but I've resolved to be kinder to rats in the future. While there were some funny moments, there weren't any laugh-out-loud bits, or at least not for me. A pleasant little movie, I thought, even if I can't figure out why everybody else liked it so much. I did like Anton Ego, the critic, voiced by Peter O'Toole, and his commentary at the end.
