A disappointing CG-animated film.
Top Critic
November 29, 2006
The action sequences mostly uninspired and the characterisations and voice-overs underwhelming.

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.

They try a little too hard. All this frantic action...

Here's hoping that Flushed Away won't be the last gurgle from Aardman in feature-film form. Aardman shows us that animated humor, even in the toilet, can still be good clean fun.

Most of the fun is in the deft characterizations, the zippy banter, and the joyous sight gags

...It's rat-a-tat pop culture references, but consistently hilarious.

...This puckish charmer about a posh Kensington mouse flushed down the loo into London sewer country is to action-adventure what Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit was to Hammer Horror.

Actually, a lot about the film is certified cool, from its whirly animation to the hordes of crunchy pop songs on the soundtrack.

Flushed Away subsumes its British charm with an aggressive American pace and more obvious body-function humour, and the film shows evidence of an awkward fit between American and British sensibilities.
November 3, 2006
Though Flushed Away duplicates the stop-motion, clay animation look of Aardman's earlier Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit, it was made using computer software and its liberated action sequences are truly dazzling.

Flushed Away is more fun than a bushel of slugs in a sewer. And considering the slugs in this sewer, that's saying quite a bit.
November 3, 2006
As some other witty Brits once promised, a splendid time is guaranteed for all.
November 3, 2006
How this thing got made in Hollywood is a mystery, but I laughed at most of it, especially the mean stereotypes about the French and the even meaner stereotype about England's soccer team.

Flushed Away moves quickly, and will just as quickly depart from memory, leaving the bemused, bubbly sensation of a good time in its wake.
November 3, 2006
The chatter is as zingy for the adults in the theater as the action is zippy for the kiddies.
November 3, 2006
The animation, computer-generated as opposed to Aardman's signature claymation style, pops with clever visual touches, and the voice cast, led by the omnipresent and ever likable Hugh Jackman as Roddy, is first-rate.
November 3, 2006
Little kids are sure to be bowled over by Roddy's reluctant heroism and Rita's resourcefulness, while the more grown up among us should appreciate the gleeful pokes at pop culture and Anglo-French relations.
