Disney computer-animated celebration of "differentness," in specific a Gallic rodent who cultivates fine taste, reads books, likes to cook, walks funny, and runs afoul of his garbage-wallowing kin. (Do ask, do tell!) Among the humans, there's some deft caricature of French facial types, a bit rodenty themselves -- especially the standard stereotype of a sniffy critic -- and very expressive into the bargain. The plot, meantime, grinds a little long and a little loud. With the voices of Patton Oswalt, Lou Romano, Ian Holm, Peter O'Toole, Janeane Garofalo, and Brad Garrett; written and directed by Brad Bird. 2007.
