Being a New Zealand movie, still it was a trash.
25 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

LOVE BIRD – TRASH IT ( F ) We've seen dogs, cats, horses, penguins, lions and even chicken movies so its time to see a Duck movie. sadly, its really average, trying to be funny and enjoyable but becomes pretty predictable and cliché.

I didn't get why they can't be funny rather than pointless and boring.. the movie with animals or birds are usually funny because of the moments of actors with the birds sadly this doesn't have any moment than that. Except the duck was Quaking time to time. No comments on Ryhs Darby and Sally Hawkins, they were strictly okay. Being a New Zealand movie, still it was a trash.
