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 ...

People need to understand, that sometimes everyone enjoys a light-hearted comedy, that sparks creative freedom. Okay, sure the premise is about 15 years too late, its about a gay duck and his silly adventures. But what makes this truly enjoyable comedy, absolute hilarious, is its ability not to take itself too seriously. Growing up gay and Jewish makes me relate to the entire characterization of Seymour Duckstein. But when this melodramatic comedy, has names of cartoon characters such as Oscar Wildcat, Bi-Polar bear,just too name a few. I cant recommend this comedy enough, if you want a funny, laugh-out-loud comedy that is so tongue-and-cheek it makes family guy look like the first seasons of the Simpson's. The only shortcomings, that the film has is it is 74-79 minutes , plus I would have loved to see a full soundtrack instead of musical members that last maybe a minute or two.
