I have my fingers crossed for 'Ratatouille', because it's Pixar and Brad Bird.  From what I've seen it could be old-style Tom & Jerry mayhem for the most part, something that's been a bit lacking in the PC and pop-culture obsessed modern day.

Probably a few too many Effs, Jenny, but I agree quite a bit!

Don't hold back, Jenny, tell us how you really feel. :P

I agree with Sheana. Judging by the director, at least, "Ratatouille" has a potential for not sucking.

I mostly agree with Jenny, too. (Though to be fair, I didn't mind the "Matrix" reference in "Shrek", since the joke hadn't been done to death at the time.)

I always hated talking-animal movies, even as a little kid.
So cliche.
I agree with the cute-baby-animals-graphically-slaughtering-each-other idea.
Homer: Marge? Since I'm not talking to Lisa, would you please ask her to pass me the syrup?
Marge: Dear, please pass your father the syrup, Lisa.
Lisa: Bart, tell Dad I will only pass the syrup if it won't be used on any meat product.
Bart: You dunkin' your sausages in that syrup homeboy?
Homer: Marge, tell Bart I just want to drink a nice glass of syrup like I do every morning.
Marge: Tell him yourself, you're ignoring Lisa, not Bart.
Homer: Bart, thank your mother for pointing that out.
Marge: Homer, you're not not-talking to me and secondly I heard what you said.
Homer: Lisa, tell your mother to get off my case.
Bart: Uhhh, dad, Lisa's the one you're not talking to.
Homer: Bart, go to your room.
