What are critics saying?
It is a relief to encounter such exuberant and infectious silliness.
Though it lacks "Wallace and Gromit"'s charm, its mile-a-minute inventiveness is impressive.
It's better than 90% of the animated fare of the last few years. It's refreshing not to have to qualify the movie's appeal by appending the words, "for the kids."
Delicious slapstick, droll wit and terrific characters make Aardman's first venture in CG cartooning a great success.
After the fourth electrocution gag, the 10th smack in the face and the 12th assault on a wee rodent crotch, we could all use something quiet.
Flushed Away lacks the action-contraption dottiness of a Wallace and Gromit adventure, but it hits its own sweet spot of demented delight.
This computer-animated feature is consistently inventive, if a bit busy and overlong.
Result is a kidpic long on invention but short on likability.
