When a pampered pet rat gets an unwelcome visitor, his whole world goes down the drain. But that's only the beginning of this unsuspecting rodent's adventures in the new DreamWorks/Aardman film Flushed Away.

Flushed Away - Someone's Going Down

Living in an enormous, golden cage at a London penthouse, Roddy (Hugh Jackman) is one seriously posh pet. But when his owners go on a short vacation, he has to face an unwelcome sewer rat named Sid all by himself. Roddy does his best to lure Sid into the toilet to flush him back to where he came from but Sid outsmarts him. Roddy finds himself swept into the sewers of London, and an amazing underground rat city that he never knew existed!

Flushed Away - Left a Good Job in the City

Roddy is desperate to return to his cushy home and hunts down a well-known sea captain named Rita (Kate Winslet) to help him. After a spot of trouble with a few mobsters and a devious toad named The Toad, Rita agrees to take Roddy home. But nothing is ever that easy. It seems that during their scuffle with the mobsters, Rita has inadvertently stolen a key element to The Toad's plan to wipe out all the rats from the sewer during the World Cup half time!

Flushed Away - Never Send a Rodent to do an Amphibian's Job

When it's clear that Rita and Roddy aren't going to give up easily, The Toad calls in his French cousin Le Frog and his crack team of amphibious ninjas. It's going to be a race to finish to see if The Toad completes his evil mission and if Roddy gets home!

Flushed Away - DVD Features

Computer-generated animation has brought cartoons to a whole new level, but sometimes it's nice to watch a flick that doesn't rely on technological flash to get their artistic point across. Flushed Away is made entirely from clay and the DVD extras show you exactly how that animation process works. It's much different from drawing each frame by hand or on the computer. There are also fun songs, games and trailers for upcoming Dreamworks flicks.

Flushed Away - The Bottom Line

Flushed Away is a hilarious movie that is truly fun for the whole family, with lots of slapstick gags for the younger kids and a few well-timed "adult jokes" to keep mom and dad interested. The characters are great (even the bad guys are likeable), the animation is fabulous and you'll never get tired of the singing slugs. You'll be blown away by Flushed Away!

    "All About that Bass" is a bait for money, but its much more ingenious than the usual "pretty women" draw. Most teenagers dig the "You're beautiful the way you are, everyone is beautiful" stuff, and the singer has capitalized on it and because of that...has earned a ton of fame and money
