* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: With the exception of Horst using his [[NoodleImplement deadly thumb]] off-screen, most we ever learn about the kitchen staff is what Colette briefly tells Linguini during the training montage. And what she tells him is ''fascinating''!

* BrokenBase: ''Ratatouille'', while one of Pixar's consistent hits, is seen by some as a bit dull compared to its other movies (not counting its less well-reviewed movies such as both ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' installments).

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Considering the film is set in France, it shouldn't be a surprise that it was a smash hit there.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: As crazy as it seems (to American viewers at least), the pest control shop with all the dead rats hanging in the window is an actual store in Paris. [[http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=newsarchive&sid=aePA9mMaULB4 It's called Aurouze, and it's been around since 1872.]]

* GeniusBonus:
** Anton's food-induced {{Flashback}} hails from Marcel Proust's concept of "involuntary memory". Quoth ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Search_of_Lost_Time#Themes In Search of Lost Time]]'':
-->No sooner had the warm liquid mixed with the crumbs touched my palate than a shudder ran through me and I stopped, intent upon the extraordinary thing that was happening to me. An exquisite pleasure had invaded my senses, something isolated, detached, with no suggestion of its origin. And at once the vicissitudes of life had become indifferent to me, its disasters innocuous, its brevity illusory this new sensation having had on me the effect which love has of filling me with a precious essence; or rather this essence was not in me it was me. ... Whence did it come? What did it mean? How could I seize and apprehend it? ... And suddenly the memory revealed itself. The taste was that of the little piece of madeleine which on Sunday mornings at Combray (because on those mornings I did not go out before mass), when I went to say good morning to her in her bedroom, my aunt Léonie used to give me, dipping it first in her own cup of tea or tisane. The sight of the little madeleine had recalled nothing to my mind before I tasted it. And all from my cup of tea.
*** It's actually a very well-known concept in France, used in common speak through the expression "''C'est ma madeleine de Proust''" (it's my madeleine of Proust).
** The reference to chef Boyardee is surprisingly significant: he was also a well-known and successful chef that was reduced to a face on prepared foods after his death.



* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs The dream sequences certainly give off that vibe, as you travel through the worlds of dancing bakery, cheese, vegetables, fruit cocktails and even a world of dishwashing at a couple points. There are floating bits of fruit/bread/etc. as platforms, soft cheese acting as trampolines in the related level and even a shark-fin-like ''knife blade'' swimming in the world of dishwashing.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Gusteau said it right "Anyone CAN cook". In real life, its possible with patience... a lot of practice... and following another's recipe/instructions religiously... so yes, of course anyone can cook! The film however, has to build up a rat as the central protagonist, and thus, ''completely butchers that ideal''. It gets bad enough when Linguini [[spoiler: the SON of said master chef teacher]] never improves upon his preparation of dishes, and the writers thought it clever that he will ''never ever'' be able to cook, and any attempt from him should be avoided, [[PlayedForLaughs or else make Remy gag]] or worse, [[DeadPanSnarker criticize his efforts]]. But the review delivered by Anton Ego shows how ''diametrically opposed'' to the notion Pixar are. Ego ''deliberately misinterprets'' Gusteau's teachings, about not everyone being a culinary artist... which is NOTHING to do with Gusteau's philosophy that anyone can make something eatable to eat.

It gets bad enough when Linguini [[spoiler: the SON of said master chef teacher]] never improves upon his preparation of dishes, and dishes (though to be fair he didn't go through years of training like the writers thought it clever other cooks, or at the very least was a prodigy that he will ''never ever'' be able to cook, and any attempt from him should be avoided, [[PlayedForLaughs or else make Remy gag]] or worse, [[DeadPanSnarker criticize his efforts]]. But the review delivered by Anton Ego shows how ''diametrically opposed'' to the notion Pixar are. Ego ''deliberately misinterprets'' read Gusteau's teachings, about not everyone being a culinary artist... which is NOTHING to do with book like Remy). However, near the end of the movie, Ego interprets Gusteau's philosophy message differently, saying that anyone Gusteau meant "Not everyone can make something eatable become a great artist; but a great artist can come from anywhere" (i.e. have humble origins). Whether Ego's interpretation is correct is apparently up to eat.the viewer.
