From the Creators of Shrek!
The story of an uptown rat that gets flushed down the toilet from his penthouse apartment, ending in the seewers of london, where he has to learn a whole new and different way of life.

"...exuberant and infectious silliness.  A.O. Scott, The New York Times
"...cheeky wit and hilarious musical numbers...eye-popping...winning vocal talent...Well done!  Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Delicious slapstick, droll wit and terrific characters...a great success.  Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter

Editor's Note
This computer-animated feature, directed by David Bowers and Sam Fell, explores a whole new world under London. A pet mouse named Roddy St. James (voiced by Hugh Jackman) is pretty much spoiled rotten. His owners live in a chic Kensington apartment, and Roddy has everything he could possibly want--except friends and a family. Everything changes for Roddy when his owners go away for a few days and their flat is invaded by a common rat, Sid (Shane Richie). Determined to reclaim his apartment and boot out the intruder, Roddy tries to talk Sid into enjoying the apartment "Jacuzzi," which is actually the toilet. But Sid is smarter than he looks, and soon Roddy is traveling down the pipes out of his sheltered life into a world that he never knew existed.

Emerged in Ratropolis and completely out of his element, Roddy is immediately caught up in an adventure. He meets Rita (Kate Winslet), a street-smart scavenger who travels the sewers by boat looking for riches that will help her care for her parents and multitude of siblings, and hires her to help him get above ground. But the villainous Toad (Ian McKellen) and his rodent henchmen, Spike (Andy Serkis) and Whitey (Bill Nighy), are constant problems. To make matters worse, the Toad is preparing to hatch an evil plot that promises to wipe out all the rats and mice dwelling underground, and he brings in his mercenary Parisian cousin Le Frog (Jean Reno) and his team to help get the job done. This comedy/adventure features first-class animation from the team that created WALLACE & GROMIT: THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT and is voiced by an all-star cast.

Expert Review Flushed Away - DVD
By: Edward Perkis Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 2/25/2007 4:36 PM
Because of the advantages of 3-D animation, the number of chase and action sequences is much higher than is typically seen in an Aardman feature. Fortunately, they are done with the same wit and attention to detail that infects the entire project. The movie never lags, which is the curse of many family-films, as though the viewer were too stupid to get the moral unless it is belabored over in lengthy pace-killing scenes....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"[With] a sculpty CGI sheen that engagingly mimics, without quite reproducing, the thumb-print tactility of Aardman's clay-figure style....[I]t hits its own sweet spot of demented delight." -- Grade: B 11/10/2006 p.58

Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he core values of the Aardman brand are carried over intact....A movie that will leave adults and children alike with big smiles..." 01/01/2007 p.42

Box Office
"[A] very fine addition to the animation art form, with lead characters that have a winning everyman quality..." 12/01/2006 p.78

New York Times
"The picture relentlessly picks up speed, zooming from drollery to anarchy to complete -- albeit brilliantly controlled -- comic chaos." 11/03/2006 p.E8

Sight and Sound
"[W]ith its energetic baddies and toned-up gags, Aardman's film is easily one of the funniest, most enjoyable cartoons of the year..." 01/01/2007 p.59

Ultimate DVD
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he animation is great, with the slugs stealing the show..." 05/01/2007 p.98

ReelViews 8 of 10
In the past few years, CGI animated films have fallen into a depressing rut. The objective has become getting a product out the door rather than taking the time and effort to produce something memorable. The result has been a generic, formulaic market where every new movie looks like all the rest. Flushed Away is a breath of fresh air. Yes, it's about talking animals, but there are no attempts at making these two-legged approximations look like annoyingly cute versions of their real-world four-legged counterparts. The animation eschews detail in favor of something brighter and more cheerful. If the whole thing resembles Wallace and Gromit, it's no coincidence. Flushed Away is the first CGI feature from Aardman, the British animation company behind this year's Oscar winner. - James Berardinelli

Reel.com 8 of 10
A delightfully silly and laugh-out-loud funny animated comedy, Flushed Away bodes happily for future collaborations between DreamWorks Animation and Aardman Features. This quickly paced and imaginatively realized tale of a spoiled pet mouse's epic journey into the sewers beneath his posh London home good-naturedly tweaks cultural stereotypes and "oh-so-British" class snobbery with a puckish abandon that's darn near irresistible. Indeed, only the most humor-impaired won't be charmed by this movie, which boasts the vocal talents of such A-listers as Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, and Sir Ian McKellen, the latter having a grand old time as the most diabolical amphibian in screen history. - Tim Knight
