Storyline

Willard, a mild-mannered insurance investigator, checks on the claim of an old woman, the owner of a tattoo parlor, who puts out a claim listing her as being dead. She tells him that her Ouija board gave her a message that she would be killed by a wizard. Willard tells her that she will not receive any money until she is dead, and, suddenly, she dies of a heart attack. Her will states that her killer would receive possession of her duck. The Dirty Duck takes Willard on a quest to experience in life to the fullest. First, they are both thrown in jail. Then, the two arrive at a house of ill repute in order to get Willard laid. Written by Alan Smithee

Nothing But a Good Duck!
19 April 2003 | by (San Antonio TX.) – See all my reviews

I only recently saw this great film on DVD and I must say, its one of the best films of its kind! We follow Willard, an insurance adjuster who finds himself on one crazy adventure after another with one crazy duck. The music is great, the jokes (while dated) are very funny,and while the animation quality may not be as good as many of Ralph Bakshi's films, I found this far more entertaining than Fritz the Cat. Its a must see for those who love the more twisted films of the 70's
