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.
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.
