Still shot from the movie: Flushed Away.

Flushed Away

In an attempt to get rid of an intruding sewer rat (voice of Shane Richie), a pet rat named Roddy (Hugh Jackman) lures the unwelcome guest into the bathroom with the promise of a "whirlpool" bath. But when it comes time to pull the handle, it is the luckless host who ends up being Flushed Away. This hilarious computer animated movie follows the city slicker's hapless adventures in the world below the streets of London, as he tries to return to his cushy, penthouse life.
