Flushed Away

3So went and saw Flushed Away tonight, and the main thing I take away is how clever it is.  But it's not just clever, the cleverness is put to work supporting jokes, so it's funny too.  It's very much like Chicken Run or Curse of the Were-Rabbit, except the computer animation lets the Rube Goldbergesque action sequences run at a faster pace while still being completely understandable (and also lets them slip in more background gags.  I'm sure there's hundreds I didn't see).
