Genre: Animated/ Children
Flushed Away is the latest film from Aardman Animations, and is their first full CGI film. It follows the adventures of Roddy the Mouse as he gets flushed down the loo by an unwelcome house guest, and his escapades in getting back home only to find thats not really what he wants.
This film is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a really long time. I was laughing so hard, I almost wet myself. Admittedly, Flushed Away take the piss out of several other films, and the general premise is clichÃ©, but the characterization and jokes are so good that it doesn’t matter. I don’t want to say it’s not for Yanks, but I think you have to understand at least a little about the British national psyche to understand some of the references. This film is probably more suitable for older children, as younger kids won’t get the jokes, but this is an awesome family film.
