Movie synopsis

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.

Editorial reviews

"[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+
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman (11/10/2006)

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..."
Total Film - Neil Smith (01/01/2007)

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

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

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

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

Entertaining with humor for all the family!

Created: 17/02/07
Flushed Away is a highly entertaining, humorous movie for all the family.
An animated offering from the Dreamworks / Aardman team that brought us Wallace and Gromit; it stands apart from the many other animated films that were brought to use in 2006 - with superb visuals, a captivating plot and a lot of multilevel humor that has something to appeal to all ages!
This movie is set in the depths of the London Sewerage system - hardly the setting one would expect for a kids movie - but this segway provides the opportunity for lots of humor that one could expect from this setting - though nothing too offensive - just silly fun!
Roddy (played by Hugh jackman who does a very authentic British accent) -is the society mouse who lives in one of the most affluent areas of London - in a palatial cage; he finds his path crossed with Sid the sewer mouse played by British commedian Shane Richie - the perfect authentic Cockney to work this part! Suddenly Roddy is thrust into sewer life leaving all his riches behind - and there begins a funny adventure with many characters that help develop the plot and inject humor...the singing slugs are not to be missed, popping up at every opportune moment to lend us a tune!
Roddy meets Rita played by Kate Winslet - and they work together to get him home - but of course there is a twist which leaves Roddy wondering just what to do!
This is a fun filled movie, with a perfect run time of a just under 90 minutes! Perfect length to keep the family entertained and the plot engaging! Well worth a look!!
