A pampered pet “society mouse” Roddy St. James (Hugh Jackman) thinks he’s got it made…until he’s literally flushed away to a bustling underground world of ninja frogs, hench-rats and singing slugs. In an attempt to get out, he meets an enterprising scavenger Rita (Kate Winslet) and a villainous Toad (Ian McKellen). This outrageously inventive adventure is a flood of fun.

The action sequences mostly uninspired and the characterisations and voice-overs underwhelming.

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

Crude but imaginative adventure is flush with fun.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that kids will definitely want to see this animated adventure from the folks behind Wallace and Gromit. Not surprisingly, considering the title, it's got lots of potty humor: The storyline revolves around a rat being flushed down a toilet into a sewer, and there are references to human waste, including one scene in which a character appears to grab a piece of excrement. Lots of cartoon violence, too: Characters fall from high places and are shot at, chased, frozen, electrocuted, yelled at, and threatened. Toad is an evil villain, and Sid is a disgusting character who belches, farts, and is generally crude. On the other hand, Rita is an independent girl who can fend for herself.
