Movie Info

Born as a series of three-minute chucklers on Icebox.com (and aired later on the Showtime pay-cable network), veteran Simpsons-producer Mike Reiss' giddily irreverent tale of a homosexual duck (voiced by Jim J. Bullock) determined to re-define his sexual orientation comes flaming to life on the big screen courtesy of director/animator Xeth Feinberg. With special appearances by Conan O' Brien, Mark Hammill, David Duchovny, Tim Curry, Bruce Vilanch, and Billy West, this lightning fast collection of gags, pop-culture riffs, and catchy tunes follows the web-footed, unlucky-in-love fowl as he navigates the sometimes perilous gay scene.

A 72-minute non-stop gagfest.

Some of the songs manage to be both coarse and catchy... others are less inspired. The jokes have about the same hit-to-miss ratio, with dozens of groan-worthy moments mixed in among some smart satire.

Reiss takes advantage of the contemporary rift between '70s-born freewheeling gay lifestyle and modern gay domesticity.

As a satire, it flops miserably, and as loose comedy, it flops even more.

Audience Reviews for Queer Duck: The Movie

Simpsons producer Mike Reiss's feature length tale of Queer Duck and his friends Openly Gator, Oscar Wildcat and Bi-polar Bear. A gag reel of a film that will have you chuckling a plenty. Not all the jokes hit home and sometimes the silliness is just a bit too silly. Still the laughter out stripped the head shaking and the Family Guy-esque sight jokes are gold. Packet of Quentin Crisps anyone?

I enjoyed this thoroughly. It's crass. It's inappropriate. And it's hilarious. I could watch this over and over.

Arriving about a decade and a half too late, Mike Reiss' "Queer Duck" movie banks most of its humor on the not-particularly-startling novelty of having most of its animal characters being gay. Broadway showtunes, crossdressing, homosexual panic, and nudge-nudge-wink-wink innuendo might have been more of a novelty in, say, the 1980s, but in this day and age simply hauling the old cliches out of the closet and parading them around like you've never seen them before makes for some pretty lazy humor. The overall storyline, which has self-absorbed hero Queer Duck being turned heterosexual via some questionable brainwashing techniques, has some bright moments but largely feels like a squandered opportunity for what could have been a genuinely biting satire. While it may not be particularly hilarious, "Queer Duck" does feature some pleasantly affable characters, and it centers on a sweet-natured message about tolerance that's pretty hard to take issue with.
