Flushed Away, the newest in the Aardman stable of fine sights, is refreshing, funny, hilarious, and the slugs have it (elaborating would give it away). With humor that children can get and adults can appreciate, and plenty of flashy eye-candy for those who disdain those lesser things such as plot and narrative, both of which this show does have as well. It’s definitely light fare, but you won’t consider it a waste if you’ve spent a precious $9.50 (plus popcorn tax) on it as an evenings entertainment.
Note, Aardman has moved beyond strict clay-mation with this flick, but they’ve worked hard to retain the charm that clay brought. The work that went behind this show is incredible. Hip Hooray to Aardman and here’s to many more.
