Bubbling over with exclusive bonus features, including shorts, deleted scenes, and much more, Ratatouille is a treat you'll want to enjoy again and again.
"Displaying the usual meticulousness associated with the Pixar brand, Ratatouille is a nearly flawless piece of popular art." A.O. Scott, The New York Times
"Brad Bird wrote and directed Ratatouille and tops his previous work. Since his work includes The Iron Giant and The Incredibles, this puts him somewhere between Chuck Jones and Michelangelo." David Edelstein, New York Magazine
"Arguably the finest 'toon in the Pixar canon." The New York Post
"A lot of animated movies have inspired sequels, notably Shrek, but Brad Bird's Ratatouille is the first one that made me positively desire one." Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Ratatouille might be that rare G-rated film that adults enjoy even more than children. In other words, some scenes cater to folks who prefer truffles over goldfish crackers." The San Francisco Chronicle
"Ratatouille is delicious fun sure to be savored by audiences of all ages for its sumptuous visuals, clever wit and irresistibly inspiring tale." USA Today
