Hildegarde - a movie better on a dish than on the screen

Well the duck was okay really but the director and the producer should have been shot, stuffed, and roasted Peking Style.

The story consisted of a single mum that commuted to the city for work, leaving 3 kids to mind their own time. Their pet duck Hildegarde, lays eggs and gets kidnapped but local bird poachers. The story runs around how the kids get on and get their duck back. The kids have their moments, but the singing in the car would drive anyone bonkers, and the flashbacks Jeremy has made absolutely no sense at all. The adult actors were hopless, and the plot died 5 mins in.

Thank god the rental of it was free...
