We weren't particularly affected by Arthur's encounters with various strangers along the way. We think we know why: For the most part, we found ourselves watching a grown actor pretend to have a special connection. With a duck.

Writer-director Nic Bettauer can't decide whether to play Duck for tears or laughs.

Much of the journey becomes redundant, and the film likely would have been more effective as a 20-minute short.

There isn't much to it, but this odd little road movie from writer-director Nic Bettauer does boast a sincere charm, and fine performances from its two leading actors.

There are precedents for this kind of old-coot-and-adorable-pet cinema, but the director, a USC film grad, demonstrates little in the way of keenness or even sentimentality.

The filmmaker is good with actors, and in Hall, she has a lead with such innate authority that you can't take your eyes off him, even when he's manhandling flapping waterfowl.

Feature debut by scripter-helmer Nic Bettauer is a small, affecting road movie peopled with sharp vignettes.
