Anton Bitel
Eye for Film

Exciting, adventurous, and flush with visual and verbal gags, Aardman's latest stands out from the many other children's animations released this year because it seems a labour of love rather than a soulless commodity.

A witty combination of jokes for both adults and kids.

Glenn Whipp
Los Angeles Daily News

The movie's gaggle of writers (seven different men have either screenplay or story credits) come up with enough clever visual references to ease the burden of familiarity.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The dialogue is witty and the action exciting, but without the hands-on, homemade appeal of stop-motion, the Aardman magic is missing.

| Original Score: 3/4

James O'Ehley
SA Movie & DVD Magazine

Any movie designed for kids that wantonly throws around Kafka gags gets my vote.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

Embora animados digitalmente, os personagens deste novo longa trazem, em seus designs e personalidades, as características que fizeram dos filmes da Aardman um repositório constante de histórias engraçadas e envolventes.

| Original Score: 4/5

Urban Cinefile

Deliciously witty, funny and clever, endlessly inventive and filled with Aardman's trademark eye for detail, Flushed Away has more for grown ups than for kids, although no age group could complain of being under nourished with entertainment in this film.

Richard James Havis
Film Journal International

Although Flushed Away is on a much bigger scale than its homely predecessors, it's still comfortably offbeat and funny.

Empire Magazine

The best animated movie of the year and only a whisker shy of the brilliance of Wallace and Gromit.

Christopher Smith
Bangor Daily News (Maine)

Achieves a controlled sense of arcane looseness on its way to becoming one of the year's better animated efforts.

Linda Cook
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

If you love "Wallace and Gromit," you'll want to get "Flushed Away" with these new characters from Aardman.

Creative Loafing

Where the Aardman wit is retained -- and what significantly elevates the film's worth -- is in the small details, tossed-off asides and background imagery.

There are singing slugs, and I don't know what else you could want.

James Sanford
Kalamazoo Gazette

endearingly loony... nearly stolen by a chorus of hard-working slugs that slithers from scene to scene, often contributing exactly the right reaction - or song, as the case may be - at the right time.

Robert Roten
Laramie Movie Scope

The result of pairing Aardman and DreamWorks is not quite as good as the best work either studio has done independently.

Sean O'Connell
Charlotte Weekly

The film's humor actually splits down the middle, with intelligent puns for parents and gratuitous pratfalls for kids.
