Counting up all the illegal acts in Pixar’s Ratatouille

ratatouille-assault

We know that Disney and Pixar’s animated films aren’t set in real life. That would take all the fun out of it. But if they were, there’s at least one film in the library that would have some serious problems with the law.

Carla Lanternier dissects Pixar’s Ratatouille to count just how many illegal acts are represented in the movie. Quit a few as it turns out.

Carla plans to send this to the legal department at Pixar and Disney Animation Studios in order to secure a legal internship. We wish her luck.

    Also, you can’t have handguns in France (the apartment scene)… so – possession of an Illegal firearm.

    The film is set in France, so the application of US laws is inappropriate. As an Englishman, the behaviours seen in the film are perfectly normal in France. In fact they are showing the French in a very good light!
    However, the $800K in fines that Carla highlights pale into insignificance next to the multi-millions that could be brought against her for copyright infringement and illegally distributing copyright material.
    But, it’s all done in fun.
    PS – you missed out a number of European health and safety infringements. – I’m after a job as well!!

      I’m fairly sure there is a fair use exception for the copyright here. She’s transformed the original work and added commentary.

    This is what happens when someone has nothing better to do. Enjoy the movie as it is. Sorry I wasted my time on this. People will post anything.
