Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, like all of Pixar's other films, Ratatouille includes nuanced humor (about the French, haute cuisine, food critics, and so on) and references aimed directly at adults. Kids will miss most of these references but most likely will still enjoy the plot and animal characters. Not surprisingly for an animated kids' movie, the protagonist, Linguini, is an orphan -- although at least he's a young adult and not a child. There's some moderate peril involving the rats and weapon-wielding humans that may frighten sensitive and younger viewers; the sewer sequence is particularly tense and potentially scary, as is the gun-toting grandma. There are a few mild insults, such as "stupid" and "loser," and one "hell."

Sexual Content

Linguini and Colette flirt, embrace, and kiss.


Remy is hunted by an angry, gun-toting grandma and knife-throwing chefs. A gun is fired. One chef is rumored to be an ex-con and looks menacingly at the rest of the kitchen staff. Characters crash through windows, are struck by lightning, are hit, and are trapped. The sewer sequence early in the movie is somewhat scary.


A few mild insults: "stupid," "loser." One "hell."

Social Behavior

Linguini learns to give credit to his rat pal, and Remy realizes that his family connections are more important than his human ones. On the downside, two chefs in the kitchen are very hostile to Linguini, which could make some kids uncomfortable.
