Movie review: Ratatouille

I took my daughter and neice, both 9, to see the new Disney movie today. You just need some nice cool place to go on days like this....when the heat hovers around 116F and even lazing around in the swimming pool makes your head pound. So we grabbed our Harkins 'loyal patron' cups and went to the matinee. 

First of all, it was a really cute movie....good characters, setting, and writing. It was very charming and I loved that.

I just can't get past it being about rats.

Rats crawling around kitchens, through sewer pipes, slinking about in the dark and stampeeding in a full hoard of swinging tails and weird noses and the slinking......aaaarg! Not to mention preparing food in a restaurant! I hated it I hated it I hated it! Even now my stomach is feeling lurchy just thinking about it. 

The girls loved it though.

Maybe it is because I grew up in the Willard generation.....*shudder*

If you've seen the movie, did this bother you? Or am I just over sensitive? I just know I don't think I"ll watch it....ever....again.


ps....notice, no use of graphics or html links on this post....no word from angelfire 'help' yet. *grumbling*

I took my grandson, age 4, to see this movie. It was bored. I liked it. I think it's for older children who understand it alittle better. He did get through the movie but for him it was just boring. I liked it. I think he'll like it when he's a little older. He likes Toy Story, Tom & Jerry, Sponge Bob, things like that.

The rats never bothered him or me. It's just a movie. I thought they were cute.
