I don't care all that much for the story itself, but I love everything that's got anything to do with working in a restaurant - apparently up to and including however it's represented in animated movies!
Not that much of a plot in this one, it is the animation that sell the tickets, and it is well made, but nothing that goes into history

"He's dying to become a chef."
"Dinner is served... Summer 2007"
Remy is an idealistic and ambitious young rat gifted with highly developed senses of taste and smell. Inspired by his idol, the recently-deceased chef Auguste Gusteau, Remy dreams of becoming a cook himself. When his clan is forced to abandon its home, Remy is separated from them and ends up in the sewers of Paris. He eventually finds himself at a skylight overlooking the kitchen of Gusteau's restaurant.
As Remy watches, Alfredo Linguini is hired as a garbage boy by Skinner, the restaurant's devious current owner and Gusteau's former sous-chef. When Linguini spills a pot of soup and attempts to recreate it with disastrous results, Remy falls into the kitchen and cooks the soup to perfection rather than escaping. Linguini catches Remy and is confronted by Skinner. While they are arguing, the soup is accidentally served and proves to be a success. Colette Tatou, the staff's only female chef, convinces Skinner to retain Linguini, who is assumed to be the soup's creator. After Skinner catches Remy in the act of escaping, he orders Linguini to kill him. He cannot do it. He then discovers Remy's intelligence and passion for food, so he keeps him.
