5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible film set down the toilet !!, 9 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Flushed Away [DVD] (DVD)
I know that this film did not do too well at the box office which absolutely flummoxed me.I first saw it at the cinema with my 11 year old son-loved it so much that we then took along Grandma-then dad and then rushed out to buy the dvd upon release.The humour is without a doubt first class,some goes over the children's heads and are specifically aimed at the adults but without exception we all roar with laughter at every viewing.As with other reviewers I must point out the brilliance of Ian McKellen as Toad,Bill Nighy as the lovable but supremely daft henchman Whitey,Miriam Margolyes as Rita's crazy grandmother and Jean Reno as Le Frog.

There are lots of humorous references to other movies which will keep you on your toes as they come and go so quickly! Nemo is spoofed when Roddy sees a fish swimming around in a toilet bowl and is asked 'Have you seen my dad'(complete with liverpudlian accent!),Le Frog bears an uncanny resemblence to Inspector Clouseau with one of his henchfrogs being a mime artist called Marcel,an obvious reference to Marcel Marceau,there is a spaghetti kiss between two slugs (lady and the tamp)Toad mimics Larry Grayson in a 'Shut that door' imitation~I could go on as there are tons more but I shall leave you to discover then for yourself....

Please buy this dvd~laugh yourself silly and then watch it again to discover all the bits that you missed first time round.I cannot recommend this film highly enough so go on, get flushed away,you know you want to !!

Thankyou. A nicely phrased review which has just convinced me to buy the DVD having missed the film in the cinemas.
