Synopsis

Double-bill of animated features. In 'Ratatouille' (2007), Remy (voice of Patton Oswalt) is a rat who dreams of becoming a great French chef despite the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly musophobic profession. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau (voice of Brad Garrett). Despite the apparent dangers of being an unlikely - and certainly unwanted - visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant, Remy's passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down. Remy finds himself torn between his calling and passion in life or returning forever to his previous existence as a rat. In 'Cars' (2006), successful rookie racer Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) has just won a three-way tie with elder rival Chick Hicks (voice of Michael Keaton) and 'The King' (voice of Richard Petty). On his way to the big tie-breaking race, Lightning crashes through Radiator Springs on Route 66 and is forced to remain in town until he repairs the damage he has caused. At first, the tight-knit community doesn't accept Lightning's bad attitude but he eventually befriends redneck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) and falls in love with Sally (voice of Bonnie Hunt). However, he can't seem to get the gruff Doc Hudson (voice of Paul Newman) to change his mind about him. Soon Lightning learns the inhabitants of the town as a whole also had a different past that's painfully absent, and tries to help them enjoy it once more.
