In the 2007 animated movie "Ratatouille," Remy is a rat who dreams big, and his ultimate dream is to be a gourmet chef. When he unexpectedly winds up in the sewers underneath the kitchen of a swanky Parisian restaurant, he pairs up with the restaurant's new garbage boy, a lad by the name of Alfredo Linguini. The two collaborate with Remy directing his human assistant, allowing the rat to cook up all the delicious dishes he could ever hope to concoct alone. This works for a while, but eventually the secret comes out when a cranky food critic demands to meet the head chef, and it's discovered that Remy's been running the show. Luckily, however, it all works out in the end, as with most Pixar flicks.

On the next page, we'll sweeten things up for a bit.
