Queer Duck: The Movie is the relentlessly funny, feature-length extension of the animated series Queer Duck, created by frequent The Simpsons scripter Mike Reiss. Sexually scandalous yet sweet, the movie is a cascade of pop-culture stereotypes of gays in America, punctuated by rapid-fire references (as with The Simpsons) to, well, just about everything: classic movies, game shows, Gilbert and Sullivan, Paul Lynde. Hey, there's even a storyline: Queer Duck (voiced by Jim J. Bullock) and his partner of 18 months ("That's a lifetime in gay years"), Harvey Fierstein sound-alike Stephen Arlo "Openly" Gator (Kevin Michael Richardson), hit a relationship crisis when the fey fowl is wooed by a brassy Broadway broad. Queer Duck wonders if he'd be happier being straight. While Gator the waiter spills his problems to a compassionate Conan O'Brien (thanks for the cameo), Queer Duck goes on a personal odyssey that ultimately leads to a showdown with a television evangelist at a theme park re-christened Fairyland. One has to see it to believe it. With supporting vocal performances from Mark Hamill, Tim Curry, Estelle Harris, and Maurice LaMarche. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Saw It at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco! :-) June 24 2006
By Jokie X Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is incredible. I saw the shorts on the Internet years ago and was excited to find out that a movie version was showing at the Castro Theatre. I saw it this eveing and was laughing the whole time! The puns kept coming and the humor was sharp and quick and very queer!

I won't give away the plot, but to say it explores a lot of contemporary issues of what it means to be queer, both socially and scientifically. Add a little religion and you have our whole current gender paradigm turned on its head! Jesus is great too and saves the day at one point. The gay vs. straight jokes are hysterical. But, be warned: You *must* have a sense of humor to watch this. If you love cosmic humor, this will certainly tickle your funny bone!

For those at home, Queer Duck is the name of the main character who is a-- wait for it-- a queer duck. His partner is Openly Gator. A friend is Bipolar Bear. They have adventures together that are silly and poke fun at LGBT culture. There are a lot of puns, plenty of celebrity caricatures, and a lot of social satire. I highly recommend it as a part of everyone's transfiguration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh-a-nanosecond July 13 2006
By Beth Kopley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
If you don't laugh at one joke...wait a second, you'll be laughing at the next fifteen. Queer Duck has something for just about everybody. With his trademark saturation comedy, incorporating broad strokes of shtick, an onslaught of "in" jokes, and zillions of little digs, Mike Reiss follows the travails of Queer Duck, his long-suffering companion Openly Gator, and their pals Oscar Wildcat and Bi-Polar Bear. There are celebrity cameos aplenty and David Duchovny in a particularly well-cast voiceover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes a poke at everyone - very funny! Nov. 5 2006
By Ric Corless - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The film does a good job of bringing the Queer Duck web snippets to the big screen. The story lines take a solid poke at the morons who condemn without any knowledge or understanding, and provides some valuable information about our gay brothers & sisters. Also, it's just plain funny so it's great for a laugh break if your party is going slowly and needs a pick-me-up!

4.0 out of 5 stars If You Like Films About Homosexual Poultry, You Could Do Worse Jan. 3 2007
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What can one say about "Queer Duck"? You either know who he is or you don't. You either love his antics or you don't. It seems pretty simple. Originally broadcast as short films, Queer Duck and his entourage (Oscar Wildcat, Bi-Polar Bear, and Openly Gator) captivated many. Using conventional, and mostly negative stereotypes, they managed to be both raucously funny and surprisingly astute. I was never particularly in the "cult" of "Queer Duck"--I found them generally amusing but never sought them out specifically.

I must admit, I pretty much dreaded "Queer Duck-The Movie." How can you turn a minute cartoon into a full length feature? It's been done, I know--but often with disastrous results. Well, clocking in at just over an hour (a good length)--I found "Queer Duck" to be a nice surprise. It managed to maintain its integrity and be pretty darn funny, too. Skewering everything from Disneyland, the Minnelli-Gest nuptials, and gay conversion--"Queer Duck" takes on relatively easy targets, but still scores. There are lots of jokes, so if you don't like one--just wait a minute, they arrive fast and furious.

The film also benefits from nice cameos from Conan O'Brien, Bruce Vilanch, and David Duchovney as Baby Jesus (it's better not to ask). And I loved the thrilling climax straight out of the great thriller "Black Sunday" (go figure). Chances are if you like this kind of stuff, you'll like this. If not, then stay away. I'd give this 4 stars for the built in audience--if you don't know "Queer Duck," though, you might want to sample a couple of short films first. KGHarris, 01/07.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! Jan. 11 2007
By J. Erik Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I thought this movie was hysterical! The jokes and one-liners come at you in such rapid fire that you will surely be hitting the rewind button! The animation is funny, with lots of nods to classic cartoon characters. The voice-acting is perfect, also emulating classic cartoon voices. The writing is clever, making the jokes more high-brow than just cursing and toilet humor. I would not recommend this for young kids or for people who only like gay characters as the butt of jokes.
