Flushed Away

Overall A

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.

Why is Flushed Away rated PG? Flushed Away is rated PG by the MPAA for crude humor and some language

Animated violence amongst personified rat characters puts some cast members in perilous situations as they try and escape from Mafia-like enemies. These “bad guys” are made up of an English toad and some French frogs—some audiences may interpret the latter to be a racial slur. Surprisingly, this sewer-focused movie has little “toilet” humor—other than a rat that burps very forcefully. The script includes a few mild sexual innuendos, a term of deity used as an expletive (uttered in French) and a colloquial slang phrase that may be a considered a little offensive by some cultures.
