* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: It also liberally uses plenty of French stereotypes.
--> ''Listen, we hate to be rude, but we're French!''

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: It ''is'' somewhat weird [[spoiler:that you never get to see what happened to the rest of the kitchen staff outside of Colette after the truth is revealed about Remy cooking for Linguini. You'd think that at the very least, there would be a montage at the end of the film, or even in the credits, showing off the kitchen staff's new whereabouts]].

** Linguini spends a good portion of the movie being controlled by Remy so that they can cook, and also receives cooking instructions from Colette to be a better cook in the kitchen. You'd think that with these two things going for Linguini that some cooking techniques from Remy and Colette would rub off on him, and that Linguini would actually learn to cook something on his own by the end of the film. [[spoiler:Instead, he suddenly becomes a waiter]].

** The same goes for the line "One can get ''too'' familiar with vegetables, you know!"

** Anton Ego, who many people consider one of the best Pixar characters of all time despite only appearing briefly in the third act, thanks to his great lines, memorable personality and being played by acting legend ''Peter fucking O'Toole.''

** For some people, the mere fact that it's about a ''rat'' in a ''kitchen'' cooking food that people are going to ''eat'' - animated or no!

** Michael Giachino's [[{{Pun}} whips up]] another jazzy and [[EarWorm insufferably catchy]] score for a Creator/BradBird film. The scene of Remy imagines delicious combinations being represented by two different kinds of music fusing is one of the best visualizations in the whole film, and of food in general. And the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esohR65lsVg cue]] for Colette's TrainingMontage re-arranged as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5igpBHE0oiY a bombastic mambo number]] for the credits just [[JustForPun takes the cake]].

** Horst's Japanese voice actor Creator/HirokiTochi gets to [[Manga/BlackButler voice a chef a year after]] Ratatouille, who actually has the same hair colour as and hidden badass status similar to Horst.

* GeniusBonus:
** The sight of Remy nearly throwing up from the smell of Linguini's wretched cooking makes the latter look even more incompetent if you know that rats don't actually ''have'' a vomit reflex. Yes, Linguini's cooking ''is so terrible it makes rats defy laws of nature''.
** Anton's food-induced {{Flashback}} hails from Marcel Proust's concept of "involuntary memory". 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). 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.
** 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.
