Continuity mistake: Right before Anton Ego eats the ratatouille, there is a shot of the right side of his face and his left hand holding a fork with the ratatouille on it. Very close to his left hand, in that same shot, is also a glass of wine, a lamp, and a small pot of flowers. Then right before the image zooms away from him into his flashback in the next shot, after eating the ratatouille, the shot shows a glass of wine and now a bottle of wine next to his left hand, while the lamp and pot of flowers moved closer to his right hand.

Continuity mistake: Right before Chef Skinner exits the kitchen, in an attempt to stop the soup from being delivered, there is no ladder to the right of the door. Then when he re-enters the kitchen, a ladder appears next to the door.

Continuity mistake: When Collette asks, "What did the customer say?", there is no ladder in front of the stove. Then right before Chef Skinner tastes the soup, he is able to pull out a ladder from the front of the stove.

Audio problem: After the kitchen staff abandon Linguini because the truth of his success is revealed, Alfredo walks into and shuts the door to the kitchen's office. As the door closes the sound is noticeably delayed.

Continuity mistake: When Colette is fleeing Gusteau's after Linguini reveals Remy, she skids to a stop at a red light, sliding between two rows of several cars. However, a few moments later when the light turns green, there's a row of cars stuck behind her where there wasn't room for them to have been before.

Continuity mistake: When Linguini kisses Colette, she attempts to spray him with pepper spray. In one shot the spray is right next to his face. But in the next shot, the spray is several inches away from him.

Other mistake: When Remy and Emile are cooking the mushroom on the roof, notice that the part of the antenna Remy is actually turning is moving slower, and inconsistently than the end of the same antenna with the two prongs at the left end.

Continuity mistake: When Remy fixes the soup Linguini has ruined, Remy uses a large wooden spoon to stir the soup. When Remy is caught cooking by Linguini, he leaves the spoon in the soup. A few seconds later, the spoon is no longer in the soup and disappears.

Continuity mistake: Remy is reunited with his father in Paris. They are in a conversation at a little table. Remy's 'cup' moves closer to the edge of the table, towards our left, in several shots.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie when the crazy lady goes after Remy and Emile with the shot gun, she fires three shots at them: two in the wall and one towards the ceiling when Emile is crossing the banister. After Emile crosses the banister, look at the ceiling around the chandelier in the next shot. There are already 4 shotgun holes in the ceiling.

Factual error: 1961 Chateau Latour is the wine Skinner uses to bait Linguini into revealing information about the rat he suspects. Cheval Blanc 1947 is the wine Anton Ego drinks with his meal when reviewing Gusteau's. Although the two wines make a clever reference to famous bottles in foodie culture, in real life these wines auction for thousands of dollars and would be unrealistic to drink in those circumstances.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film, Remy and Émile are at the old lady's house. The cooking show comes on TV. In one shot, the TV is facing straight forward, sitting perfectly parallel to the edge of the cupboard. In the next shot, the TV has moved to the left and is sitting at an angle. Watch its relation to the edge of the cupboard.

Continuity mistake: When Rémy crashes through the window, the cookbook appears to contain only about 10 heavy pages. They don't look like clumps of thinner pages, which might be the case if they were wet, but they aren't. The animators seem to have drawn the pages in a hurry since they aren't a plot point yet. Later in the sewer, when Rémy meets "Gusteau", even though the book has been soaked during the trip, it now is animated with hundreds of normal pages, and they are inexplicably dry.

Continuity mistake: When Remy and Emile are cooking the mushroom on the roof, notice that the mushroom is skewered on the antenna. When Remy and Emile are hit by lightning and sent careening off the roof, the mushroom is instantly on a stick in Remy's hand, instead of the antenna. It could've been sent flying by the lightning bolt, but even if it was, there was no stick in the previous shot for it to have ended up on.

Continuity mistake: When Remy and Emile are cooking the mushroom, Remy has it skewered on the antenna on top of the house. The end of the antenna part that Remy is using has a piece on the end that sits perpendicular to the part Remy has the mushroom on. It would've been really hard for him to get the mushroom on there without it breaking, and in the shot it looks intact to me.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when the crazy shotgun lady is after Remy and Emile, she knocks over the umbrella canister when she pulls out her shotgun. Watch for that canister as the scene progresses. It goes from being knocked over to being upright and back to knocked over during the scene.

Deliberate mistake: Main headlines in newspapers appear translated for each country for the kids to understand it, but the rest of the news appear in English, despite the movie taking place in Paris. Also, most signs -such as the poisons in the window shop- have labels written in English.

Continuity mistake: The soup that Remy starts with is a red tomato soup, but after he "fixes" it, it becomes a white soup. It is impossible to change 10 Gallons of red soup to 10 gallons of white soup with 1 quart of cream, 2 quarts of oil and a handful of herbs.

Remy: This is me. I think it's apparent that I need to rethink my life a little bit. What's my problem? First of all, I'm a rat. Which means, life is hard. Second, I have a highly developed sense of taste and smell.



The wine that Anton Ego requests at dinner is Cheval Blanc, one of the best wines in the world. It is one of only two to receive the highest rank of Premier Grand Cru Classé (A) status in the Classification of Saint-Émilion wine of 1955, along with Château Ausone.
