I don't live anywhere near a movie theater (I think the nearest one is about an hour and a half away? If it even runs new releases? If it's even still in business?) so I'm somewhat out of the loop when it comes to movies. But, I can't help noticing that some folks are tickled with Ratatouille. Phil at Brandywine Books, for instance.
Orrin Judd links to some positive reviews in newspapers. That would be 'liberal-leaning' newspapers.

Update: The official movie site is here, with clips and trailer and more. Caution: Soundtrack started all of its own accord.
