He stole clothes?
Ah, nothing but old robes. 40 years of searching, and all I end up with is Collie Baba's dirty laundry!
Well, at least the box is pretty, Uncle Scrooge.

Animation is OK, but the problem is the script. It starts rushed up and ends with fairy-tale Disney ending that has always been annoying.
I saw this movie right after watching third season of the show (I grew up watching DuckTales but recently decided to re-watch just to watch the movie itself) and the drop in quality is very noticeable.
The animation done by a new studio feels rough, especially when they show whole Duck Berg or the first opening scene itself. Some characters like Launchpad do pretty much nothing while others like Gyro and Gizmoduck are completely absent like they never existed (not even a small cameo). Worst part is, this movie's failure meant Disney never bothered with another movie unlike Aladdin which has like 4 movies.
That said, is it a "bad" movie? No. Kids will enjoy it, even grown ups.. probably will. Just not enjoy it as much as the TV series itself.
