I missed this movie when it was out in theaters and had to watch it on tv (HERESY!!) and not even in HD (BLASPHEMY!!), which is a pity because it truly is a spectacle to behold.

Naturally, this being a Pixar production, the animation's wondrous details aren't its only strength. As usual, the script is well developed, both funny and touchy, and the voice over acting excellent.

The story, without spoiling anything, is that of a mouse who, unlike his brethren, loves food's qualities over its quantity, and is hell bent on putting his skills in the kitchen to the test.

We watched this movie on Family Night, but this is by no means a kids-only movie. Like all Pixar films, it can be thoroughly enjoyed by adults as well.

PS: Do not watch this movie on an empty stomach. It will make you hungry.

Grade: 8
