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.
March 24, 2007
A witty combination of jokes for both adults and kids.

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
John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
December 15, 2006
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

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

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.

Film Journal International

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

A treat for adults and children alike.

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

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.

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.

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
November 9, 2006
The result of pairing Aardman and DreamWorks is not quite as good as the best work either studio has done independently.

Charlotte Weekly
November 9, 2006
The film's humor actually splits down the middle, with intelligent puns for parents and gratuitous pratfalls for kids.
| Original Score: 3/4
