Oh my, finally a very charming animated film about rats. I loved it. I do NOT love rats, due to an unfortunate infestation of norwegian river rats at my very first home in New Orleans. They are filthy. And disgusting. So I could not have watched this if there were animatronic rats- but these are cute little cartoon rats. The dialogue is good and the plot moves right along. The French are very French and so some of the lines are a little, well just a little, mean spirited toward them. But it is all in good fun. I'd love to see an audience of French viewers see this one. I wonder how the translation will go? But it is a fun 2 hours. I think the kids in the audience liked it a lot.
