Good movie on the surface however, blasphemy has found its way into this otherwise good movie. Very unnecessary.

It’s a so-so movie for kids 4-9

Entertaining but not enriching. 10 year old thought it was a bit boring and wouldn’t want to watch again. It kept the 5 and 7 year olds attention although they mostly picked up on the crude humor rather than the themes.

Is It Any Good?

If you can get past Flushed Away's crude humor, it has an imaginative storyline and amusing characters. Particularly appealing are the funny little slugs who are easily frightened (they're classic Aardman Animations characters -- the folks behind Wallace and Gromit and Creature Comforts). There's also a message: It's a big world out there, if you're willing to venture out of your comfort zone and experience it.
