Few days ago, Shin and I went to watch this cartoon, Flushed Away. The story is about a pet mouse named Roddy St. James who lived in a rich family, being flushed out from his home by another filthy sewer rat named Sid. Roddy was trying to fool Sid of getting into the toilet bowl (which he lied to him as a Jacuzzi) but he was the one who flushed away into the bustling world down below. Underground, Roddy discovers a vast metropolis, where he meets Rita, a street-wise rat who is on a mission of her own. If Roddy is going to get home, he and Rita will need to escape the clutches of the villainous Toad, who royally despises all rodents and has dispatched two hapless henchrats, Spike and Whitey, as well as his cousin–that dreaded mercenary, Le Frog–to see that Roddy and Rita are iced, literally.
The cartoon is not bad actually. The songs are nice and its really funny. But if you really want to watch this movie, don’t watch the trailer because most of the funny stuffs are shown in the trailer. This makes the movie just a bit dull for me. Luckily the storyline is not that boring and there are some other funny stuffs that you won’t see from the trailer.
As I remember when I saw the trailer quite long ago, Roddy had 2 servants who served him. But in the actual movie, he’s all alone in a big house as a pet. Am I wrong then? Hmm..
Roddy and his big castle all by himself, before he was flushed away into the sewers.
Roddy trying to con Sid to jump into the “Jacuzzi” so that he can flush Sid out from the house.
Hoho… Bad guys captured Rita and Roddy..
A fly and whole crowd of frogs.. What will happen then?
This movie is very entertaining. Best for those who need to relax without thinking their brains out just to figure out the storyline. Haha~
