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.
March 24, 2007
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.
| Original Score: 3/4

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

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

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

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

An animated film inferior to Aardman's tradition, but just about right for DreamWorks' recent mediocrity streak

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.

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

Time Out
November 29, 2006
The action sequences mostly uninspired and the characterisations and voice-overs underwhelming.
Olly Richards
Empire Magazine
November 29, 2006
The best animated movie of the year and only a whisker shy of the brilliance of Wallace and Gromit.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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

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

...the story and characters remain unengaging.
