WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Queer Duck befriends an aging actress and must convince his friends heís still gay. Of course, along the way he encounters many compromising adventures.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
I donít get it. If youíre a fan and are already outraged by my low rating, then just pass it off that I donít get Queer Duck. I canít find any humor in this cartoon or anything of substance that would merit an entire film. It seems to me that the entire punch line of the idea of Queer Duck is that heís gay and heís a cartoon duck. If thatís really are there is to it, then heís about 20 years too late to be shocking or funny.

The problem is that Queer Duck lacks originality or humor. Itís a collection of one-liners that make it confusing to whether itís laughing at or with the gay community. The storyline is atrocious and itís obvious the creators knew they didnít have enough for a whole movie and so they pasted several cartoons together. But thatís not really fair to criticize the storyline of a cartoon of this nature, so then we have to focus on humor, of which there was none. Again, there was nothing here to grasp hold of. The dialogue was horrible and I expected more from someone associated with the Simpsons.

Also, Iím very curious as to whether or not the gay community finds this offensive or funny. Is the true goal of Queer Duck to offend or mock? Who is this cartoon marketed towards? Adults will be bored out of their minds with the scattered plot and outdated one-liners. So that leaves kids, and I wouldnít think the sexual material and innuendoes would be appropriate for the typical Saturday morning crowd. Either way, Queer Duck doesnít work and itís just plain bad.
THE EXTRAS
Getting Behind Queer Duck (10:33): The film was originally funded by two billionaires, but they backed out. I can only assume they backed out because a smart person wouldnít have financed this film and there are no dumb billionaires. The rest of this featurette involves the creators and the lead voice guy talking about the making of the film. Itís mildly interesting.

People Behind the Voices (9:03): This runs a bit long for what it is, but itís the most interesting of the bunch. I like seeing the real people behind the voices and this did a decent job of showing all the real people.

Getting the Right Homosexual (4:50): This involves the creatorsí search for the perfect gay man to portray Queer Duck. This is similar to the movie because everyone else seems to think itís funny to be a homosexual. Itís not.

How to Find a Partner if Youíre BiÖUm Coastal (3:39): Apparently, the internet is a great way to find a partner if youíre an animator. The creators did a lot of web cartoons before torturing us with Queer Duck. I donít know if thereís anyone out there that doesnít know the internet can connect people, but if youíre out there, then you should take a look at this.

Character Assassination (2:45): I donít know why ďfamousĒ people like to be made fun of in animated form, but they do. This looks at the celebrity appearances and how they were involved. At two minutes, itís worth a look if you have the time.

Queer Duck Shorts (16:55): A ďshortĒ is about as much as Queer Duck deserves. Iíll admit that heís funnier in spurts, so if youíre interested at all in it, check these out first.

There are also some Previews.
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
I canít recommend this cartoon to any demographic. Itís not funny, shocking, interesting or even cute. Queer Duck belongs in 2-minute intervals, not 72.
