Overview

A previously pampered society mouse must fight his way back to the comforts of Kensington after he is sent spiraling into an underground world filled with scavenger rats and villainous toads in a fun-filled family adventure produced by DreamWorks Animation and Aardman Features and featuring the voices of Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Ian McKellen, and Jean Reno. Roddy Jackman was living the high life when he first met Sid the sewer rat Shane Richie, but that's all about to change when Sid decides to send the hapless mouse down the pipes and stealthily take his place in the lap of luxury. Though the bustling sewer city of Ratropolis isn't without its fair share of kind citizens, it is certainly no place for a pampered mouse with a taste for life's finer things. Upon making the acquaintance of scavenger rat Rita Winslet, Roddy is certain that the pair can navigate their way back to the surface in Rita's trusty boat, the Jammy Dodger, but Rita's help doesn't come cheap, and the nefarious Toad McKellen is determined to rid Ratropolis of all things rodent. When Toad's hapless hench-rats Spike Andy Serkis and Whitey Bill Nighy fail to achieve acceptable results, the green meanie is forced to call in the cavalry in the form of legendary French mercenary Le Frog Reno to get the job done.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
When the family's away, the mouse will play. But pampered house pet Roddy's home-alone romp is shattered when a sewer rat settles in. Roddy voiced by Hugh Jackman tries to dispose of this ill-bred intruder by flushing him down the "Jacuzzi," but the rat knows a toilet when he sees one and flushes Roddy instead. Our hero finds himself in a subterranean metropolis that cleverly replicates London, a far cry from his palatial cage; and upon splashdown he finds himself embroiled in the affairs of scavenger rat Rita Kate Winslet, who pilots a makeshift craft called the Jammy Dodger. She is pursued by the evil Toad Ian McKellen, who is plotting to wipe out the underground city's rodent population. The first computer-animated feature from Britain's Aardman Animations Wallace & Gromit is an absolutely smashing adventure. While one misses the stop-motion plasticine delights of those films, Flushed Away more than compensates with superb voice work, including Andy "Gollum" Serkis and Bill Nighy as the Toad's bumbling henchrats and a hilarious Jean Reno as Toad's mercenary French cousin, Le Frog. Droll humor and whimsical characters -- such as singing slugs and accordion-playing frogs -- further reveal the Aardman hands behind the film. From a cockroach reading Kafka's The Metamorphosis to two slugs re-enacting the romantic spaghetti dinner from Lady and the Tramp, there are inventive throwaway gags and clever visual bits that will reward repeat viewing. Flushed Away pretty much sums up what unaccountably happened to this movie when it played in theaters. But as with The Iron Giant, another initially neglected gem, this film should be flush with success on DVD.

    This movie is too cute.

    I usually don't like these new animated movies, but this one was the cutest one I've seen yet. This movie is great entertainment for the whole family.

    SEE IT!

    I saw this in the theatre with my family and we laughed throughout and were still laughing hours later over some of the gags. Very well done with soooooo many layers! Watch it once for the obvious gags, then pay attention to the background. If you are familiar with Aardman's work, you'll see plenty of homages to other movies. Very funny, extremely clever, and ultimately sublime.
