Movie Review – Duck Duck Goose (2018)

Duck Duck Goose, 2018.

Directed by Christopher Jenkins.

Starring Jim Gaffigan, Zendaya, Lance Lim, Greg Proops, Natasha Leggero, Stephen Fry, Craig Ferguson and Carl Reiner.

Synopsis:

A bachelor goose must form a bond with two lost ducklings as they journey south.

When a movie’s opening minute features a poo joke, a butthole joke and a Twitter reference, you certainly can’t blame those responsible for misrepresenting the overall product.

Released in the UK this weekend to zero fanfare – arriving with virtually no marketing and not a single pre-release review – Duck Duck Goose is lowest common denominator animated fare at its most soul-suckingly bland. Your kids, nephews, nieces and proximate littl’uns – whatever their relation – deserve so much better than this, to say nothing of yourself.

Peng (Jim Gaffigan) is a carefree bachelor goose preparing for the upcoming migration, but his overconfidence results in an accident where two duckling siblings, Chao
