Flushed Away is sweetly silly and consistent - it is the perfect story for a few hours' respite.

This movie has so many ingredients that I should love... [but] I find the characters all to be unlikable.

Flushed Away, directed by David Bowers and Sam Fell, is creatively realized, especially in how it takes "found" materials underground and re-imagines London landmarks.

Aiding the movie greatly is its excellent voice casting.

It's smarter than all the other 2006 animated movies, save for Monster House.

Nice action, fun animation, good voice acting, mediocre to dull story. In the end it all balances out.

Flushed Away may not be Aardman's best work, but it's still much smarter than most of the junk that passes for kids' entertainment these days.

The result is a movie that has glossier and more elaborately designed backgrounds while retaining the traditional values of storytelling and performance -- and, of course, talking animals.

It's an interesting approach to bridging two very different disciplines -- it's just a pity they didn't find a better script to try it out on.

Despite the attempts to make this slick and bang up-to-date - plasma screens and pop culture references abound - it still feels curiously caught in aspic.

So confusing... so jarring... so utterly irritating, how I long for "Wallace and Gromit" at this moment...

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.

A disappointing CG-animated film.

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.

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

Like a mouse on a spinning wheel, it's a film that moves at a breakneck pace but ultimately goes nowhere.
