Flushed Away movie review

The story of an uptown rat that gets flushed down the toilet from his penthouse apartment, ending in the sewers of London, where he has to learn a whole new and different way of life.

This animated movie is standard kids fare. There are adventures and 'heartfelt' moments and the like and if you're into that sort of thing, or your kids like anything animated, then this is for you. Basically, however, anything with this many writers is likely to suffer from a lack of clear focus and cohesiveness.
