Flushed Away

Flushed Away ★★★ 2006 (PG)

The Aardman studio ventures from its usual clay figure stop-motion look into computer animation but the inventiveness remains. Roddy (Jackman) is a posh London pet mouse who is unceremoniously flushed down the loo by baddie sewer rat Sid (Richie). Roddy discovers a raucous underground community that is threatened by evil gangster The Toad (McKellen) and his French cousin Le Frog (Reno). Fortunately, the pampered Roddy is taken in by tough working-class rat Rita (Winslet) as they try to save the day. The harmonizing singing slugs are an added highlight. 84m/ C DVD . US GBD: David Bowers, Sam Fell; W: Dick Clement, Ian La Frenais, Chris Lloyd, Joe Keenan, William Davies; M: Harry Gregson-Williams; V: Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Ian McKellen, Jean Reno, Bill Nighy, Andy Serkis, Kathy Burke, David Suchet, Shane Richie, Miriam Margolyes, Rachel Rawlinson.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
