Despite this animated movie being yet another one of many based on talking animals, Flushed Away doesn't try too hard to be funny by steamrolling pop culture into the story. It is funny in other ways, such as its use of slap stick, clever dialogue and various sight gags.
The voice work is good here, I wouldnt have even known that Hugh Jackman was Roddy had it not been written on the DVD case. He really doesnt sound like his usual self here but that only tells you that he has worked hard when lending his vocals to this character.
The show stealer for me are the sewer slugs. They pop up every know and again in the film singing or doing sound effects and it is perfect timing everytime!
This film is clever and appealing for both children and adults. Another top class film from Aardman Animations
