* AmbiguousTimePeriod: While not many people would notice it the first time around, there is hard evidence that suggests the film does not take place in Modern times. Namely the cars they drive, the black and white televisions, a WWII Era Gas mask, ''Typewriters'' and old Cameras. This would most likely put it at sometime in the 1960s to early 1970s.

* ShoutOut:
** Remy is introduced [[Film/TheGoodtheBadandtheUgly in a freeze frame of him crashing through a window.]]
** Look carefully, and you'll spot [[EnemyMime Bomb Voyage]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' on a street corner when Linguini and Colette roller-skate past Skinner. Here, he's not so villainous: just a regular old French mime.
** When Colette is introducing the other chefs she mentions one of them (the pyro) was a member of a failed [[LaResistance Résistance]] (although he won't say which war) -- cue the La Résistance music from ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor'', which shares a composer with this film.
** Possibly Colette herself: her last name is "Tautou", like the actress of ''[[{{Amelie}} Amélie]]''. And Sidonie Gabrielle Colette, mostly known by her family name, is a famous French author.
** The Health Inspector looks a little like [[Franchise/ThePinkPanther Inspector Clouseau]].
** When Ego tastes the ratatouille and has his FlashBack to his mother making him the same dish, it's very similar to the famous madeleine episode (and the general overall theme of involuntary memory) from the novel ''À la recherche du temps perdu'' by Creator/MarcelProust.
** The first thing Skinner says to Linguini on his first day as an official chef is [[Series/HellsKitchen "Welcome to hell."]]
** The scene with the various Gusteau cutouts. One of them sounds like [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes a certain rooster]]. Another, a cartoon of a literal corn-dog, talks like WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo.
** Not to mention that [[WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko some of the loop group of Paris]] worked on this film. (Cue the end credits)
** Émile also looks and acts a lot like [[Disney/{{Cinderella}} Gus]].
** During the scene where the clan helps Rémy cook, he orders a steak really tenderized. The brawniest rat in the clan [[Film/{{Rocky}} punches the steak repeatedly]].
-->'''Rémy:''' Stick and move!
** When the old woman first attempts to fire her shotgun, an umbrella opens out of the end, quite reminiscent of a scene in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
** The proposed designs for Gusteau's line of foods, featuring the chef dressed in various regional costumes, is quite similar to the packaging of "[[Creator/PaulNewman Newman's Own]]" brand salsas and sauces.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Linguini gets DistractedByTheSexy on his first night in Gusteau's when Colette passes by him. The two end up falling in love later in the film.

to:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: As Rémy is running through walls, he passes an arguing couple with the woman holding the man at gunpoint. The gun goes off near Rémy, who runs back to investigate. The man forces the gun from the woman's hand and they start kissing. Colette and Linguini initially start off like this, with Linguini intimidated by Colette, and Rémy creates a similar situation between them, as Linguini falls on Colette, kissing her as she pulls a mace spray on him.
