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 ...

So, how did you finally tell them you were gay?
Oh, well, that's an interesting story. It all goes back to those crazy, turbulent, fabulous seventies...
Wait a minute...
Is this going to be a musical number? I'm mean, what is it with you people and musical numbers?
Just sit back and enjoy it!

And I thought Howard the Duck was the Height of Duck movie making!
This was a funny film. Lots of gay jokes, lots of camp funny, some wicked double entendres, easy on the eye, fast paced, enjoyable. MOst of the time watching it I was thinking about other people i knew who would be laughing their asses off too, When you see a film called Queer Duck you can't go in to the experience expecting drama, plot, gritty realising or anything of the sort. It's not CSI. If the very concept of a queer duck doesn't make you smile then you probably won't like this film. Also, and as the maker says, this is a stereotype of homosexuality based on a pretty select demographic - middle aged fags the maker knows. No real plot but a lot of fun and some real laugh out loud moments.
