In Flushed Away, an upscale house mouse named Rodney and a scavenger mouse named Rita must save the underground sewer city from an evil toad who hates all rodents. In his travels with Rita, Rodney finds out that what he really wants most is a family. Rodney is truly lonely until he meets Rita and her huge family. This is the must-see movie of the year filled with laughs and some tears. As a kid, I totally enjoyed it.
