He gets him drunk, all right, but all he ends up with is a drunk Linguini talking about how ratatouille and how he doesn't think it sounds like that good a name for a dish because it doesn't sound delicious enough.

* ViewersAreMorons: ** American viewers, specifically. All the French text in the film was changed to English for American audiences, although it was kept as French for the British release. Although since the most popularly taught second language in the UK is French (also the country's closest neighbour) as opposed to the USA's Spanish, it kind of makes sense that the creators would presume more UK viewers wouldn't need the text translating for them. ** Gusteau's is called a five-star restaurant, rather than having to explain that for élite restaurants (e.g. Michelin Guide) the highest rating is three stars (almost all restaurants would get zero stars). The filmmakers did not have the rights to use the Michelin guide, so they had to use their own rating system instead.

* TheSpeechless: Rémy, a rat, is unable to communicate with Linguini, a human, throughout the whole film. The only time he speaks is to members of his own kind and to the audience (we can assume that this is TranslationConvention at work), though technically the whole movie is him recounting how he got to where he is to a group of rats.

When other characters react to where he is his noises, they are shown to a group be the squeaks of rats.a normal rat.

* PunnyName: The movie itself, "ratatouille" being the name of an actual dish while the first syllable is also the main character's species. The same joke was made on ''Series/FawltyTowers'', decades earlier, and similarly, in ''VideoGame/DiscworldII'', which expanded upon the rodent-name food puns (like vole-au-vents).

* TruthInTelevision: The rants Colette gives to Linguini regarding what it takes to be an effective and successful chef could have come, word for word, from any chef in the world who has ever had to take a brand new cook in hand and change him from a kitchen-halting speedbump into a frictionless part of the kitchen machine. And given the participation of Chef Thomas Keller in this movie, they most likely did. Yes, Chefs are really that strict in restaurants, considering you have to be on the constant move to get orders done and make sure customers are happy with it as well. High-class restaurants even moreso.

High-class restaurants even moreso. Also the part of Colette had it way more difficult than any of the male cooks to get into a star-prized restaurant as Gusteau's is very true, since female chefs are rare, ''especially'' in France.
