I enjoyed the relationship between Linguini and Remy, it was sweet, and heartwarming. Considering that rats are considered the bane of a chef's kitchen, it was pretty ironic that Remy was the reason that Gusteau's restaurant got a new lease of life.
Supportive characters including Collette and the cheap, head chef Skinner, were nicely handled too. I really loved how Collette and Linguini ended up falling for each other as well, it was hilarious!
Overall, I think this was a clever and heartwarming animated movie, and I'm glad it won the Academy Award for Best Animated feature.
If I was to gripe about anything, it's that I can never watch this without feeling very hungry, LOL.
Who else enjoyed this movie? Feel free to post your thoughts in this thread!

I love Ratatouille. While in real life I have a terrible fear of rats, in the movies they always appear so much cuter. Having Remy not only have a highly developed sense of taste and smell but also awareness to personal hygiene was brilliant.
Chef Skinner was one of the funniest villans ever. Just looking at him and hearing him talk is enough to make me laugh. I loved the scene the rats have him tied and gagged, and throw him into the fridge with the health inspector.
I think my favorite scene in the movie was Remy and Linguini practicing cooking with Remy blindfolding Linguini. That scene was so cool and funny. I also loved the cooking advice Collette gave Linguini. It was cute, the way she starts the scene being tough and intimidating, and gradually softens as the scene plays.
