Ratatouille Cooks Right Mix For Movie-watching Children & Adults
The new movie from Disney Pixar Ratatouille has proven a deserved success with both critics and filmgoers. Both children and adults have enjoyed this new film from the same team that produced The Incredibles. It is one of the best family-oriented films I have seen with my niece and nephew, without insulting the intelligence or eardrums of adults.
The main character is a rat with a discriminating palate and a desire to cook. By misadventure he finds himself separated from his family in Paris.
He becomes the brains for an inept young man who aspires to cook.
The Incredibles creator Brad Bird has made another film to hearten those with my philosophical outlook. It celebrates individualism, both human and rodent. Its heroes seek to be entrepreneurs, to work hard and be creative. Its villains are the dishonest, the uncreative and the bureaucratic.
I suppose that the politically correct collectivists of the world would be disturbed by it if they take it seriously. Let us hope they do not.
