In this shameless rip-off of Ratatouille (2007), master-chef Marcell Toing runs the greatest restaurant in all of Brazil: The Ratatoing. In its 45-minute running time, the film consists of talking, padding, more padding and some of the most memorably incompetent characters in animation history. Written by Johnny

Okay, let's forget for a minute that this is a ripoff of Ratatouille
16 April 2010 | by ndunsmoSee all my reviews

Heck, let's ignore the fact that every film by this Brazillian company is ripping off a successful American film. Is it still enjoyable? No! It only manages to get more than 1 star simply due to the fact that it's unintentionally funny with how bad it is.

The story's weak and almost non-existent. For the most part, the writers just try to pad it out by repeating the boring suiting up sequence, dedicating the first 5 minutes to characters talking about how great the food at Ratatoing is and god knows what else. The script is also pretty bad but not too bad, but does precisely need to be a catchphrase? Really? Just be thankful it didn't hit theatres first.

The animations are just... laughable, really. I've seen much better from light-wave, and that's the cheapest form of CGI animation out there. What's more is that every other movie of this kind with the exception of the Frog Prince is just as horribly animated. The worst example is that cat. No cat moves like that! It looks so awkward for that thing to move! Ultimately, even if you think of this movie as a parody it's still hard to enjoy it. Again, it gets points for being unintentionally funny but that's about it.
