30 Best Disney Movies Of All Time Ranked

Since 1937, when The Walt Disney Company made its first foray into feature films with the fully animated "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," the studio has made an indelible imprint on the public consciousness. In 2020, Disney listed over 700 films on its D23 site, and their filmography has continued to grow and grow. Of course, with that many films, some are going to be better than others, but which House of Mouse movies are the best of the best?

Well, whittling that massive list down to the 30 all-time films is a Herculean effort, so we decided to leave out movies associated with Marvel and Lucasfilm, as well as Disney's Touchstone Pictures and Hollywood Pictures imprints. To get the rest of those hundreds of titles down to the best 30, we took several factors into account, including the film's themes, impact, and that intangible je ne sais quoi that exemplifies Disney magic. With that said, here are the very best films in the studio's history, from animated classics to beloved live-action dramas. (Be aware — some of the movies on the list include depictions of race that are offensive. Those films feature warnings on Disney+ to help you decide when and how to watch.)

Updated on May 10, 2022: Disney is still churning out classics, so every time you wish upon a star, be sure to check back here and see if we've updated this list to reflect the studio's ever-growing catalogue.

30. Remember the Titans

When it comes to sports biopics, they don't get much better or more inspirational than "Remember the Titans." It's based on the true story of Herman Boone, who becomes the head football coach at a Virginia high school in 1971. There are tensions between Boone and his assistant coach -– and former Titans head coach -– Bill Yoast because of the way the school district promotes Boone, and there are growing racial tensions between the Black and white players. There's also the hitch that Boone will be fired if the team does not win all of its games that season. Director Boaz Yakin provides rousing football action but doesn't shy away from the racism of some of the characters. Washington is also at his motivational speech-making best, pushing this film into our Disney top 30.

29. The Parent Trap

"The Parent Trap" is a remake of the 1961 film that starred Hayley Mills as twins separated at birth when their parents divorced. In this 1998 film, the twins are played by Lindsay Lohan in her breakthrough roles as Hallie Parker and Annie James, neither of whom knows the other exists until they meet at summer camp. The two share a fondness for pranks and soon figure out they're related. And then it's pranks galore as they scheme to reunite their parents. Lohan does a great job of giving each twin their own personality, as well as showing the subtle differences when each tries to impersonate the other. Director Nancy Meyers does a bang-up job of updating the film -– well, minus that weird custody agreement –- for a modern audience without losing the original's charm.

  • Starring: Lindsay Lohan, Natasha Richardson, Dennis Quaid
  • Director: Nancy Meyers
  • Year: 1998
  • Runtime: 127 minutes
  • Rating: PG
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 87%

28. Enchanted

Though the Disney brand is closely associated with animated fare, some of their best films are live-action or have live-action components. In the fantasy rom-com "Enchanted," Amy Adams stars as Giselle, who lives in the animated land of Andalasia. Evil queen Narissa sends Giselle into the "real" world to stop Giselle's marriage to Narissa's son, and while there, Giselle falls for Robert, the man who helps her deal with her new circumstances. The film plays with traditional Disney animated tropes in live action, such as small woodland creatures helping Giselle clean house while she sings like a princess. Adams is completely delightful in the wonderful world that is "Enchanted."

  • Starring: Amy Adams, James Marsden, Idina Menzel
  • Director: Kevin Lima
  • Year: 2007
  • Runtime: 108 minutes
  • Rating: PG
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 93%

27. Lilo & Stitch

Take two sisters, add a genetically engineered agent of chaos, and you get "Lilo & Stitch," one of the best films of Disney's Post-Renaissance Era

After their parents are killed in a car accident, Nani finds herself caring for her little sister, Lilo, even letting the girl adopted a dog. However, the pooch she picks  turns out to be an alien designed specifically to cause pandemonium. But despite his penchant for chaos, Lilo names him Stitch and teaches him the true meaning of 'ohana ("family"). 

The Disney animators returned to the watercolor style from Disney's Golden Era to depict the lush beauty of Kaui'i and give the film a classic Disney feel, and it works beautifully. Plus, the emphasis on Lilo and Nani's sisterhood predates "Frozen" by several years, giving audiences a truly heartfelt film. Co-director Christopher Sanders voices Stitch as a cute but dangerous "dog" who finds his 'ohana is more important than his destructive directive.

  • Starring: Daveigh Chase, Christopher Sanders, Tia Carrere
  • Director: Dean DeBlois, Christopher Sanders
  • Year: 2002
  • Runtime: 85 minutes
  • Rating: PG
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 86%

26. Toy Story 3

"Toy Story 3" has the benefit of established character relationships, improved CGI animation from even the second film, and one of the most emotional scenes in the series. This time, the toy's owner, Andy, is about to leave for college. Worse still, the toys are accidentally thrown out and because of a misunderstanding with Woody, they jump into a donation box for a daycare center. Once there, they find themselves in the clutches of the vindictive Lotso, a bitter plush bear who was discarded by his owner. It's another escape adventure for the toys, but what makes it a top 30 film are the inherent sense of loss when a child enters adulthood and that incredibly moving scene when the toys band together as they're about to be incinerated. The love they show for each other in the face of impending doom is palpable. Plus, there's Spanish Buzz. ¡Olé!

25. Lady and the Tramp

A shining example of Disney's Silver Age, "Lady and the Tramp" follows the two titular canines — one a pampered pooch from an upscale neighborhood and the other a street stray from the wrong side of the tracks — as they fall head-over-paws in love. Of course, while the most famous scene is probably Lady and Tramp eating spaghetti, the film isn't solely focused on their romance. Rather, it's about Lady affirming her place in both her dog and human families and the joys and drawbacks of each. Okay, there are some really cute puppies too. "Lady and the Tramp" also pushed Disney's animation process forward, as it's their first picture done in the CinemaScope format.

  • Starring: Peggy Lee, Barbara Luddy, Larry Roberts
  • Director: Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson, Hamilton Luske
  • Year: 1955
  • Runtime: 75 minutes
  • Rating: G
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 93%

24. Mulan

Set in imperial Han China, "Mulan" is the second-to-last film of Disney's Renaissance Era and is partially based on the poem about legendary heroine Hua Mulan, "The Song of Fa Mu Lan." After all men are drafted into the army, Mulan disguises herself as a man so she can take her father's place and protect him. She's aided by a red dragon named Mushu who's trying to make up for his own mistakes and helps keep her secret. The animation is reminiscent of both Disney's Golden Era and of Chinese paintings, and Mulan is a strong character with a clear moral compass. Mushu is both sympathetic and hilarious, alleviating some of the tension of the battle scenes for Disney's youngest viewers.

23. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

"The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" is part of Disney's Bronze Age, also called the "Dark Ages" by some Disney fans, though there's nothing negative about this sweet collection of stories of the Bear of Very Little Brain, his best pals, and his human BFF, Christopher Robin. The film contains previously released shorts but with connecting scenes inserted and a whole new story added to bring the film to a natural conclusion. The songs are easy to sing along with, the animation resembles the illustrations of the original A. A. Milne stories, and well, it's got Tigger, who makes everything a bouncy good time.

  • Starring: Sebastian Cabot, John Fielder, Sterling Holloway
  • Director: John Lounsbery, Wolfgang Reithermann
  • Year: 1977
  • Runtime: 74 minutes
  • Rating: G
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 100%

22. Raya and the Last Dragon

"Raya and the Last Dragon" was one of the first big films of Disney's streaming era, releasing on Disney+ and in theaters simultaneously. It's also the first Disney film with a Southeast Asian princess. Raya is both a young royal and warrior who lives in the Heart tribe of Kumandra, a land split into five groups after an attack by evil spirits called Druun results in the creation of a magical dragon gem. Heart wants to reunite with the other four tribes, but fighting over the gem brings back the Druun. Desperate for peace, Raya searches for the last dragon, Sisu, who she believes she can defeat the Druun and save her world. "Raya and the Last Dragon" boasts beautifully detailed, culturally specific backgrounds for each tribe, stellar voice acting, and a thematically rich story.

  • Starring: Kelly Marie Tran, Awkwafina, Izaac Wang
  • Director: Don Hall, Carlos López Estrada
  • Year: 2021
  • Runtime: 108 minutes
  • Rating: PG
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 94%

21. The Incredibles

"The Incredibles" takes the concept of superheroes and puts it through its paces in an enjoyably frantic way. Superheroing has more or less been outlawed because of all the damage that occurs whenever "supers" clash. Stuck in their secret identities, the Parr family is restless, especially patriarch Bob, aka Mr. Incredible. Bob takes up vigilante work, which leads to an actual superhero job and the discovery of a supervillain, albeit at the risk of putting his family in serious jeopardy. "The Incredibles" pushed CGI animation forward, sure, but it's also a good old-fashioned family movie about families coming together in the face of caped adversity.

  • Starring: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson
  • Director: Brad Bird
  • Year: 2004
  • Runtime: 115 minutes
  • Rating: PG
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 97%

20. Mary Poppins

A combination of live-action with bits of animation, "Mary Poppins" is buoyed by an Academy Award-winning performance by Julie Andrews as the title nanny, who brings her magic to the lives of the Banks family. The Banks household is rather stern, but while Mary is firm, she's also fun. She helps the family loosen up and reconnect in ways it hasn't before with the help of her friend Bert, some dancing penguins, and a spoonful of sugar. "Mary Poppins" also won an Academy Award for its song "Chim Chim Cher-ee" and includes the equally singable "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," "Let's Go Fly A Kite," and "Step in Time." Despite its setting in 1910 Edwardian London, "Mary Poppins" is a timeless delight.

  • Starring: Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, Glynis Johns
  • Director: Robert Stevenson
  • Year: 1964
  • Runtime: 140 minutes
  • Rating: G
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 96%

19. Queen of Katwe

"The Queen of Katwe" is based on the true story of Phiona Mutesi, a young girl who became one of the first titled female chess players in Ugandan history. Set in Katwe, an impoverished neighborhood in Kampala, this modern-day Disney classic shows how chess became an integral part of Phiona's life. While the film is structured the way most Disney sports films are -– underdogs rise above their circumstances to succeed -– what sets it apart is director Mira Nair's eye for detail. She doesn't smooth away the edges of the poverty Phiona lives in, but she doesn't fetishize it either. The chess matches are full of drama, tension, and occasionally triumph, and each role is expertly cast.

  • Starring: Madina Nalwanga, David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong'o
  • Director: Mira Nair
  • Year: 2016
  • Runtime: 124 minutes
  • Rating: PG
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 94%

18. Bolt

Released in 2008, "Bolt" finds John Travolta voicing the titular canine, a pooch who's been raised to believe he has superpowers and who stars in a crime-fighting TV show with his human owner, 13-year-old Penny. An accident results in Bolt getting separated by thousands of miles from Penny and having to accept he's not a superhero -– at least, not the kind he thinks. Bolt's accompanied on his journey back to Penny — and to self-discovery — by the hyper hamster Rhino and the sardonic cat Mittens, resulting in a dynamically animated and enjoyable road trip that packs a surprisingly emotional wallop.

  • Starring: John Travolta, Miley Cyrus, Susie Essman
  • Director: Chris Williams, Byron Howard
  • Year: 2008
  • Runtime: 96 minutes
  • Rating: PG
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 89%

17. Finding Nemo

"Finding Nemo" makes the list because of its touching tale of Marlin, a clownfish who becomes an overprotective and fearful father after his wife is killed protecting their eggs. Marlin's son, Nemo, is born from the one surviving but damaged egg, leaving him with a too-small fin. When Nemo is captured and taken off to spend his days in a dentist's aquarium, Marlin must team up with the forgetful Dory and overcome his fears to find his son. The brightly colored CGI animation and memorable tunes are perfectly paired with the timeless theme of conquering fear to become your best self. The voice work is stellar as well. Who hasn't tried speaking whale after seeing "Finding Nemo?"

  • Starring: Albert Brooks, Ellen DeGeneres, Alexander Gould
  • Director: Andrew Stanton
  • Year: 2003
  • Runtime: 100 minutes
  • Rating: G
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 99%

16. Bambi

"Bambi" is the last film from Disney's Golden Age. It has all the classic hallmarks of a Disney animated film, including a deceased parent, gorgeous animated backgrounds that resemble watercolor paintings, and cute animal sidekicks. Okay, all the characters are animals. Bambi is a fawn –- and technically, a Disney prince –- whose mother is killed by a hunter and whose father is the Great Prince of the Forest. Bambi makes friends with Thumper the rabbit, Flower the skunk, and Faline, another fawn, but the group comes of age together as "Man" encroaches on the forest. It's a gentle, heartwarming tale but with a few scary elements — the perfect mix of light and dark for young audiences.

  • Starring: Hardie Albright, Stan Alexander, Peter Behn
  • Director: David Hand
  • Year: 1942
  • Runtime: 70 minutes
  • Rating: G
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 91%

15. Dumbo

Another great film from Disney's Golden Age, "Dumbo" is a fanciful tale of a baby elephant whose large ears make him a target for bullying, but they turn out to be a tremendous asset. After Dumbo's mother is caged and shackled because she intervenes when cruel children taunt her son, Dumbo is helped by Timothy Q. Mouse to come out of his shell, escape the indignities the circus clowns put him through, and fly above it all. "Dumbo" has fantastic watercolor backgrounds and an absolute tearjerker of a song, "Baby Mine," that makes us sob just thinking about it. 

  • Starring: Edward Brophy, Herman Bing, Verna Felton
  • Director: Ben Sharpsteen
  • Year: 1941
  • Runtime: 64 minutes
  • Rating: G
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 98%

14. Up

"Up" begins with the most emotionally devastating scene in Disney film history since Travis had to, um, "let go" of Old Yeller. In less than five minutes, "Up" shows the entirety of Carl and Ellie's life, from their "meet cute" as children through marriage until her early death, mostly without any dialogue whatsoever. It packs a punch so forceful that you'll be racked with sobs. And that's just the adults in the audience! 

Now, alone and on the verge of losing his and Ellie's house, Carl attaches hundreds of balloons to his home and flies to his and Ellie's dream location, Paradise Falls. Unfortunately, a young scout, Russell, is trapped on Carl's porch. The slowly budding father-son relationship between Russell and Carl, not to mention that perfect union between Carl and Ellie, float this right into our –- SQUIRREL! — top 30.

13. Tangled

"Tangled" gives us an assertive, inquisitive version of Rapunzel and a fantastic villain in Mother Gothel, who's deliciously evil. There's also a heroic horse named Maximus and the cutest pet chameleon named Pascal. The CGI animation deliberately resembles the Rococo painting style to reinforce the story's setting, and Rapunzel's joy at discovering the world outside once Flynn Ryder helps her escape her tower is infectious and sweet. "Tangled" also has one of the best villain songs in Gothel's "Mother Knows Best." Just writing out the title gives us the shivers.

  • Starring: Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Donna Murphy
  • Director: Nathan Greno, Byron Howard
  • Year: 2010
  • Runtime: 101 minutes
  • Rating: PG
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 89%

12. Frozen

"Frozen" is part of Disney's modern-day Revival Era and one of its best films ever. Based on Hans Christian Andersen's story "The Snow Queen," "Frozen" features Elsa, a princess born with powers, while her sister, Anna, has none. The sisters have a rift due to a childhood accident, which causes Elsa to withdraw into a world of winter and sparks a tale that upends a lot of Disney tropes, especially when Anna gives precedence to her family bonds over her fairytale dreams of love with a prince in order to find and save her sister. Also adding to the film's joys are the adorably dim but sweet snowman Olaf and the monster hit song, "Let It Go." "Frozen" is like a world's best warm hug.

  • Starring: Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff
  • Director: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee
  • Year: 2013
  • Runtime: 102 minutes
  • Rating: PG
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 90%

11. Aladdin

Part of Disney's Renaissance Era, "Aladdin" is powered by a bravura vocal performance by Robin Williams as Genie, as well as the near-Shakespearean villain duo of Jafar and his bird sidekick, Iago. The tale of young "street rat" Aladdin is peppered with memorable set pieces such as Genie's showstopper, "Friend Like Me," one of the songs composed by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (Ashman sadly passed away before "Aladdin" was completed). Add in self-possessed heroine, Princess Jasmine, who wants to do her own choosing when it comes to marriage, and you get a fun magic carpet ride for kids of all ages.

  • Starring: Scott Weinger, Robin Williams, Linda Larkin
  • Director: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Year: 1992
  • Runtime: 90 minutes
  • Rating: G
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 95%

10. The Little Mermaid

The film that kicked off Disney's Renaissance Era is also one of its best. "The Little Mermaid" puts a Disney spin on Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale of a mermaid who gives up her voice in order to become fully human and seek the love of a prince. But where Andersen's story gets bleak, "The Little Mermaid" is triumphant. The songs by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman are outstanding, especially the lively "Under the Sea," and the villainous Ursula is one of Disney's best baddies.

  • Starring: Jodi Benson, Pat Carroll, Christopher Daniel Barnes
  • Director: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Year: 1989
  • Runtime: 82 minutes
  • Rating: G
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 93%

9. Pinocchio

"Pinocchio" is widely hailed as an all-time Disney classic — nay, an all time cinematic classic — and it's not hard to see why. The tale has heart, thrills, scares, laughs, and yeah, even more heart. It also has innovative and gorgeous animation that builds upon the achievements of its predecessor, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves." As for the plot, Pinocchio — accompanied by his "conscience," Jiminy Cricket — is brought to life by the Blue Fairy, but he has to prove he's worthy of becoming human. Along the way, he must avoid temptation, his own propensity for lying, and a terrifying whale named Monstro. "Pinocchio" is top-tier Disney filmmaking, one of the best films the studio has ever made, and features one of Hollywood's most beloved songs with "When You Wish Upon a Star."

  • Starring: Cliff Edwards, Dickie Jones, Evelyn Venable
  • Director: Ben Sharpsteen, Hamilton Luske
  • Year: 1940
  • Runtime: 87 minutes
  • Rating: G
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 100%

8. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" kicks off not just Disney's Golden Era but its entire film empire. It's the first film to ever use cel animation, and every frame is a beautiful wonder. Based on a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, this version adds in adorable woodland creatures and omits a lot of the more gruesome aspects of the original story. "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" has tunes that stick in your head for days (including "Heigh-Ho"), stunning animation, and a villain who's both a wicked queen and an evil stepmother. 

  • Starring: Adriana Caselotti, Harry Stockwell, Lucille La Verne
  • Director: David Hand
  • Year: 1937
  • Runtime: 80 minutes
  • Rating: G
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 98%

7. The Princess and the Frog

Disney's aptly named Revival Era began with "The Princess and The Frog," which stars Disney's first Black princess, Tiana. Well, she's not a princess at first. Tiana is a young woman in New Orleans who works hard so she can open her own restaurant. When a confused frog prince asks her to kiss him and remove his curse, the smooch backfires and curses her as well. The two must figure out how to undo the spell before they remain frogs forever. Hand-drawn and digital artwork are paired in this lovely tale, giving the film a classic Disney animation look, with a jazz soundtrack courtesy of Randy Newman. Most importantly, Tiana is one of Disney's strongest characters, a motivated woman who finds she can balance work and love without giving up her own sense of self in the process.

  • Starring: Anika Noni Rose, Bruno Campos, Keith David
  • Director: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Year: 2009
  • Runtime: 95 minutes
  • Rating: G
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 85%

6. Pete's Dragon

"Pete's Dragon" is the rare case where the remake exceeds the original. It eschews the animated shenanigans of Elliot the cartoon dragon in favor of a CGI creature who looks like a cross between a mythical creature and a dog and acts like both. In this version, Pete's an orphan who's rescued by Elliot, and the two live in the woods for years until Pete is discovered by a kindly forest ranger and her family. Unfortunately, there's also a hot-headed lumberjack in the mix who's none too happy about a dragon scampering about in the forest. "Pete's Dragon" is an old-fashioned, emotionally effective "family is where you find it" film that showcases the best of Disney's ability to soar in the live-action realm.

  • Starring: Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley
  • Director: David Lowery
  • Year: 2016
  • Runtime: 103 minutes
  • Rating: PG
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 88%

5. Moana

"Moana" continues Disney's streak of hits in its Revival Era, as well as expanding the diversity of Disney characters. Moana is a young Polynesian girl and daughter of her tribe's chief, but her life quickly changes when the ocean chooses her to complete a magical quest. She must restore the heart of Te Fiti, a goddess, which was stolen by a demigod named Maui years ago. And during her quest, she'll actually have to ally with said demigod, who's lost his powers and isn't thrilled about having to assist this mortal. However, the search for Te Fiti results in self-discovery for both Maui and Moana, who will one day become her tribe's leader. The humorous braggadocio of "You're Welcome," the soaring notes of "How Far I'll Go," and the flawless CGI animation (except for Maui's tattoos, which are wonderfully hand-drawn) vault "Moana" into Disney's top 30 films.

  • Starring: Auli'i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Rachel House
  • Director: John Musker, Ron Clements
  • Year: 2016
  • Runtime: 113 minutes
  • Rating: PG
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 95%

4. Fantasia

The third film of Disney's Golden Age, "Fantasia" is an experimental feature that has several segments marrying classical music to varied animation styles, as well as live-action connective scenes of famed conductor Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra. The most famous segment, the delightful "Sorcerer's Apprentice," stars Mickey Mouse as the overconfident title character, dealing with magic he doesn't understand. The other segments are wonderful as well, complete with fairies, dinosaurs, and demons. Note that the version available to watch now differs somewhat from the original, which is for the better because the segments removed featured racist depictions of Black characters.

3. Beauty and the Beast

"Beauty and the Beast" is the classic film of the Disney Renaissance Era. Combining computer-generated backgrounds with hand-drawn art, the film expanded Disney's animation toolbox. As for the tale as old as time, Belle agrees to stay with Beast, a cursed prince who's imprisoned her father. The Beast's enchanted servants, including candelabra Lumière and stuffy clock Cogsworth, help Belle, and before long, she and Beast fall in love. Belle's would-be suitor, Gaston, naturally isn't a fan –- no one holds a grudge like Gaston! Several memorable songs and a heartfelt performance from the Beast's Robby Benson make "Beauty and the Beast" one of Disney's best.

  • Starring: Paige O'Hara, Robby Benson, Jerry Orbach
  • Director: Gary Trousdale, Kirk Wise
  • Year: 1991
  • Runtime: 84 minutes
  • Rating: G
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 94%

2. Coco

"Coco" follows the adventures of Miguel, a boy who accidentally winds up in the Land of the Dead on Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and has to find a way home before he's trapped there permanently. Miguel seeks out the soul of the man he believes is his grandfather for help, and another member of the dearly departed, Hector, agrees to assist if Miguel will make sure he's remembered by the living. "Coco" is bright and colorful, and its themes about memory and family — not to mention its fabulous songs — resonate long after the credits roll. Keep a whole box of tissues ready when you watch and make sure to hug your abuela.

  • Starring: Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt

1. Ratatouille

"Ratatouille" stars Patton Oswalt as the voice of Remy, a rat in Paris who dreams of being a great chef. The problem is, well, he's a rat. No one is going to let a rat cook for them. But as Remy's hero, Chef Auguste Gusteau, says, "Anyone can cook." Remy winds up helping hapless kitchen worker Alfredo Linguini, turning him into the toast of the town via a truly unique cooking method that involves pulling Linguini's hair. However, things go wrong as they usually do, and it's up to Remy's cooking skills to save the day. "Ratatouille" is lushly animated, kinetic fun, but it also doesn't shy away from being a little heady, throwing in bits such as a Marcel Proust reference for the adults.
