Audience Reviews for Lord Love a Duck

Hokey smokes! Where did this tantalizing hidden gem of a dark comedy come from!?! I never even heard of it, but zowie, it's a keeper right up there with The Graduate and You're A Big Boy Now insofar as subversive, in-your-face, us-against-the-establishment-with-a-smirk, 60's style movies go. Think ... if Altman's M*A*S*H and Hitchcock's Psycho had a kid. Its sorta like that. Loved it.

This is a fun movie, I loved Roddy McDowall and Ruth Gordon together in the movie they were hilarious. This comedy is really zany and very funny. I really liked it.

Dark and somewhat evil satire of the shallow "want" society of Southern California where appearance and desire are the be all end all of existence. Everything is attacked here: religion, school, psychiatry, age, the movie industry, love and "Wild Bikini" beach movement of the 60's. Perhaps the funniest thing is that no matter how bad and shallow the writers and director thought things were at the time in this society 44 years later it is sooo much worse. Hmm, perhaps nobody watched this movie and got it's message.
