Some folks have impossible dreams, but none seem harder to reach than Remy's (voice of Patton Oswalt), a rat that aspires to be a world famous chef. While his pedigree is definitely an impediment, the starry-eyed rodent keeps his hopes alive by living in Paris (the city of food) and befriending the garbage boy at a first class restaurant.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Ratatouille...
Stealing garbage for dinner is not Remy’s idea of a good meal. Even so, the rest of the rats seem perfectly fine with pilfering whatever they can find to eat. And once Remy has access to the food locker at Gusteau’s restaurant, they are more than happy to help themselves to the stores. During a storm, lightening zaps two rats. Later an old woman with a rifle fires upon the rat pack. During a lovers’ spat, a girl also threatens her boyfriend with a gun that goes off without harming anyone. Dead rats in traps, poisons and equipment for extermination purposes are shown. Knives are also used to threaten characters. Some moments of peril are depicted when Remy is chased through the restaurant and later through traffic. An older man uses alcohol to get a young boy drunk. Many other characters drink wine with dinner. The script includes infrequent profanities along with the discussion of premarital affairs and an out-of-wedlock birth.
