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

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.
September 11, 2007
So confusing... so jarring... so utterly irritating, how I long for "Wallace and Gromit" at this moment...

A disappointing CG-animated film.
December 15, 2006
Like a mouse on a spinning wheel, it's a film that moves at a breakneck pace but ultimately goes nowhere.
December 9, 2006
An animated film inferior to Aardman's tradition, but just about right for DreamWorks' recent mediocrity streak
Top Critic
November 29, 2006
The action sequences mostly uninspired and the characterisations and voice-overs underwhelming.
November 13, 2006
...the story and characters remain unengaging.
November 11, 2006
A mixed bag that will leave you packing up your coat before the end credits roll.
November 11, 2006
Somewhere in the transition between plasticene and pixels, Aardman's uniquely gentle charm has disappeared. What remains is a frantic, deadening affair that's easy to admire but hard to love.
November 7, 2006
Though Roddy's tale is set in London, it's bloody obvious that DreamWorks is the American tail wagging the rat in this one.
November 6, 2006
They try a little too hard. All this frantic action...
November 5, 2006
This computer animated time-waster is a bit too frenetic for its own good.
November 4, 2006
Action is all this film offers. It doesn't stand still long enough to involve the audience.
November 3, 2006
What makes the film's preoccupation with low-brow crudities so distressing are its infinitely more clever and inspired moments.
November 3, 2006
...Brilliantly designed, frantically paced, sadly soulless and immediately forgettable.
November 3, 2006
Animated films can take years to complete, and judging by some gags, Flushed Away was in the works for a while. A bit about French toads (kind of like frogs, wink, wink) being less than lionhearted plays as stale.
November 3, 2006
Many hands, including many writers, applied themselves to Flushed Away (doesn't that usually require just one hand?). The result is committee animation: cute, fast, uninspired, softly consumable.
