Storyline: Roddy is a decidedly upper-crust "society mouse" who lives the life of a beloved pet in a posh Kensington flat. When a sewer rat named Sid comes spewing out of the sink and decides he's hit the jackpot, Roddy schemes to rid himself of the pest by luring him into the "whirlpool." Sid may be an ignorant slob, but he's no fool, so it is Roddy who winds up being flushed away into the bustling sewer world of Ratropolis. There Roddy meets Rita, an enterprising scavenger who works the sewers in her faithful boat, the Jammy Dodger. Roddy immediately wants out, or rather, up; Rita wants to be paid for her trouble; and, speaking of trouble, the villainous Toad - who royally despises all rodents equally, making no distinction between mice and rats--wants them iced... literally. The Toad dispatches his two hapless hench-rats, Spike and Whitey, to get the job done. When they fail...

Reviews
Flushed away - another classic
I was a bit hesitant at first, when seeing Flushed Away last night, but I found it clearly bested anything animated I've seen for quite a while, on par with Finding Nemo, actually!

The story develops well, the actors chosen for the English voices are among my favourites, and there is little to comment when it comes to the animation - amazingly close to clay figures, and very Aardman! And those snails were very cute!

Lots of references to other films and children stories doesn't hurt, the pun about Le Frog worked perfectly, and Mr Toad, is as Mr Toad always been, if a little larger, and a little more evil!

With a female heroine it is very up to date, and that the male lead character is a bit dumb, is just as PC as it can be. That she has what seems to be a billion sisters and brothers, is a little overdone, but this is a saga about mice, so I don't mind! How dad manages to earn enough to feed them is a mystery, specially as he's totally in cast, and sits in a wheel chair (he probably got a good insurance plan?)!

When being flushed into the nether regions our hero hits his balls at least five times in a row - I can tell you that you'll have no new pain after the first time, so it is a bit over the top, but again as PC as can be.

So, if the story was a bit less politically correct I'd give a full house, now it got only a nine out of ten!

Laugh Out Loud Funny
Flushed Away has to be Aardman's best film. It has Aardman's trademark British Humor and something unlike Aardman films: Computer animation and stop animation fused together.

The Basic Overview:

Roddy (Hugh Jackman, also in Happy Feet), a handsome mouse living in a penthouse, but with no real friends, is repulsed when a sewer rat named Sid intrudes into his home and when Roddy tries to flush him back, Sid gets the last laugh and Roddy is "Flushed Away" into a sewer town where a young lady mouse named Rita (Kate Winslet) captains the Jammy Dodger and lives with her many siblings, parents and Grandmother (Who is an avid fan of Tom Jones). Roddy is swept into helping her stop the Toad and his minions from an ingenious plot to flush the town of Rats away. Can they do it in time...and will Roddy learn to find a friend in Rita?

This is by far Aardman's funniest and best quality animation yet! A perfect 10!

Simple, Fun, Entertaining and Surprising
I must say that every time I heard about "Flushed Away" for some odd reason I kept thinking that it wasn't a much interesting animation and things like that. I was wrong and I underestimated the value of it. It's a very funny adventure with a excellent soundtrack and a great ensemble casting makes the excellent characters voices.

Roddy (Hugh Jackman's voice) is an uptown rat who lives in a big penthouse apartment, very happily until some poor rat shows up and flushes him down the toilet and letting him totally lost in the sewers of London. While trying get back home he's helped by a female obstinate rat Rita (Kate Winslet's voice) who wants to save the lives of many other rats persecuted by evil frogs led by The Toad (Ian McKellen's voice) and his French relative (Jean Reno's voice).

High-spirited, entertaining and with lots of good jokes and a few cultural references "Flushed Away" is a very simple film but in the whole body of work delivers much more than it is expected. Despite a tremendous big plot hole towards the ending (but I think kids won't notice that) the story is well structured, without any excessive moments. The soundtrack's use was very good and one of the most memorable tings here working with classics of Billy Idol, Christopher Cross "Sailing" (I laughed a lot when the song was used in a romantically moment that ended hilariously when Roddy and Rita were being chased by the villains on the boat) and many other songs; and the music composed by Harry Gregson-Williams (composer from the Shrek films) is quite good too.

If you enjoyed "Chicken Run" and similar animations from Aardman's (this is their first completely computer-animated feature) this film is for you. It's very enjoyable and highly recommended. 10/10

Probably the funniest, most complicated animated film I've seen
It is so "adult" in the sense of mature comedy, but you need to know what the references refer to. Those slugs are just adorable, but they're not like real slugs. It's so great, from the French frogs (don't miss the cellphone picture), to the tadpoles in jars who want everything, to the (Irish) siblings dancing on the boat, to all the inhabitants of the sewer city and all the inside jokes. When I first saw Roddy's closet, I knew this would be a spectacular movie. Maybe the best joke was "Millicent Bystander" -- I say it all the time! I wonder why there is no voice information on the DVD box. Were they all ashamed of the film? It's just one laugh after another and the drawings are wonderful! One of the best of all time.

Flushed Away was an unexpected treat!
Just got back from seeing Flushed Away. I had low expectations and went just for my kids, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. Animation, voice talent and most of all the unending cultural references made me laugh out loud. (I must say that the political jabs at the French got several cheers from the audience around me!) The British humor and in-jokes were perfect, and the underground London set was nothing short of inspired. The music was perfect, and both my girls and I walked out singing and laughing. I can't wait for the DVD, as I know there were many jokes that just went by too fast for the first viewing.And most of all, I want some of those slugs to sit on top of my computer - they were hilarious!

As much fun as a good computer game
Flushed Away is a highly entertaining and spirited comic adventure that explores the traditional theme of what happens when a highly civilized man (or, in this case, rat) is forced to survive in a new and relatively hostile world. As is traditional in this genre he flutters about helplessly for awhile before ultimately proving himself a hero. What makes FA remarkable for this genre is its tremendous enthusiasm and energy. The plot is non-stop razzle dazzle roller coaster ride in which one challenge follows another with hardly a moment to catch one's breath. Whatsmore, it achieves the rare feat of being simultaneously funny and exciting. It reminded me of nothing so much as a really really fun and funny computer adventure game.

Rats, Another Animated Film
I somehow have avoided most if not all the summer's worth of animated films, simply because animated films have developed a penchant for potty humor. Literally, in some of these movies. So why would I want to see a movie that not all has potty in the title it's setting is in the sewer. Because I went with a kid who really wanted to see. Plus, I have been a Wallaceand Grommit fan since they first came out. I can't remember when Ilaughed so hard. Fortunately, we went on an off night and I didn't have to contain myself. There are hundreds of inside references to other movies from Stuart Little (driving a toy car) to James Bond (Roddy wearing a tux and watching a movie of similar title) and from there it's Finding Nemo (have you seen my father?) and beyond. The blend of crass American humor to English dry wit is fairly perfect. The singing slugs (remember the singing mice from Babe)could have been annoying, but they almost stole the show. Read the other reviews for the plot. I'm praising the wit, whimsy, and laugh out loud qualities of Flushed Away.

So good, I don't see how anyone could hate it .
A title like Flushed Away (title, not the real film) might have repelled people, but it didn't repel me, and I was not sorry. Brilliantly made from the creators of Chicken Run, Shrek, Shark Tale, Madagascar, Wallace and Gromit, and Over the Hedge, you would love to see a film like this. It is really funny and is actually the smartest film of last year. I saw a few stupid films last year like Benchwarmers, Click, and Talladega Nights (which were good, too).

I thought that the funniest part of the film was when Spike got flung back, hit a bunch of bumps, and then got wound up in a bunji cord. But this retains its wittiness with elaborate plans to escape, rescue, and fight. Trust me, if you have yet to see Flushed Away, you should rent it sometime. Or even buy it! Yes, this film is really that good. You'll love it.

Just call me an English Fool
The fact that I could be entertained by another one of these animated talking animal movies is a miracle. Is this number 1000 over the past 2 years? I just love English sarcasm, wit, dryness that strikes a chord in these old bones. The great news, nobody was in drag.

During the movie, there are inside English jokes that Americans may not understand such as "England loses on penalty kicks" which is a modern football tradition in the UK and the English love of knick knacks. The singing slugs don't do it for me but the kids liked them.

I highly recommend this movie even if you are sick of computer animated talking animals.

Well animated, nice plot, fun movie.
Stars: Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis, Bill Nygh, Jean Reno.

Aardman animation has a reputation for making great movies and shorts (Wallace and Grommit, Chicken Run) and this movie was no exception. I found this to be a good movie, especially for children. It's about a pet rat Roddy getting flushed down the toilet while trying to rid the house of a sewer rat. When down in the sewer he finds a huge town and meets a girl and feels a bit less lonely. He gets caught trying to get back to his house, in a wild adventure with a mean toad and his henchmen. This movie didn't really have much of a plot, and many of the gags got annoying, but kids will enjoy it and adults will tolerate it. The kids will find the singing slugs funny, while the adults marvel over the excellently animated sewer mouse town.

My rating: *** out of ****. 81 mins. PG for crude humor.
