Trivia: Near the beginning, when Remy is in the sewers and begins to make his way up to the skyline of Paris, he is startled by a barking dog in one of the apartments. If you pause and look at the silhouette of the dog, it greatly resembles Dug the dog, from the 2009 Disney/Pixar release Up - another precursory nod to an upcoming movie by Pixar. (00:16:35)


Trivia: 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.

Trivia: Once again, another reference to "The Incredibles": before Remmy & Linguini go into the kitchen for the first time, Linguini pulls his pants open, and we can see his boxers. His boxers, have the Incredibles logo on them.


Trivia: The number A113 has appeared in every Pixar film. In this one, it appears on the big buff rat who appears when Emile comes with more rats for the food. He is the one who asks "Is there a problem?" The number can be seen on the gold tag on his ear. (01:11:10)


Trivia: Toward the end of the movie, Linguini and Colette are reading Ego's review in the paper. In the paper is an advertisement for the step stool ladders that Skinner uses throughout the movie.

Trivia: When Skinner is driving his car and sees Remmy skittering towards Linguini, but he says it was just his keys, listen to the music playing on the radio. That is the same song that is playing later in the movie, after Skinner is fired.


Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie when the crazy lady goes after Remy and Emile with the shotgun, 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.
