Ugly Duckling And Me (2006)

Starring : Morgan C Jones, Anna Olsen, Justin Gregg, Kim Larney, Aileen Mythen, Drew Lucas
Director : Michael Hegner & Karsten Kiilerich
Running Time : 85 mins

A city rat named Ratso (Jones) travels into the country in search of fame and fortune at a carnival in which his penpal Ernie (Lucas) lives, but along the way he finds himself on the run from a rat named Phyllis (Olsen) and her menacing brothers, and becomes trapped in a chicken coop where he mistakenly becomes the carer for a newborn duckling he names Ugly (Gregg & Larney).

This is a lovely little road movie, which brings all the characters on a journey of self discovery as they get to know each other. Granted, it’s predictable, simply because everyone knows most of the plot already, but the additional plot twists are fun and well conceived and make for an overall enjoyable film.

Verdict : 8/10
