Disney's classic 1971 comedy about the goose that lay the golden eggs returns in digital format, retaining its old-style family-friendliness, slapstick silliness, and good-natured predictability. Dean Jones plays professor Albert Dooley, a lab worker down on his luck, who lives in suburbia with his earnest yet scatterbrained wife Katie (played deliciously by Sandy Duncan). When an under-performing lab duck's life is in jeopardy, Dooley rescues him to become a family pet and soon discovers that some earlier exposure to radiation has turned the duck's eggs into gold. The Dooley's newfound wealth brings its share of pandemonium as they try to keep their proverbial "nest egg" under wraps, especially from nosy neighbor Finley Hooper (Joe Flynn), a government Treasury man. Such low-tech fare is not without touches of brilliance: Duncan gets to deliver the best lines and does so with great panache. If Million Dollar Duck falls short in inventiveness, this small serving of comfort food satisfies with ample amounts of warmhearted cheer. (Ages 4 and older) --Lynn Gibson
Professor Dooley (Dean Jones) and Katie (Sandy Duncan) are a married couple that is having a hard time making it financially. Now to top it off their son wants a dog, but they can't afford it. Dooley is working as a low-level scientist at a laboratory that uses animals as test subjects for intelligence, and his ownh duck subject is a failure. One day the duck gets gamma rays by accident and the boss says, "Get rid of that duck". The duck goes home with Dooley and becomes the boys new pet, Charlie. But trouble starts when he begins to lay golden eggs. The family wants to take the duck for their own use and gets greedy, upsetting the boy.

I bought this as I remember watching it as a child and being enthralled and wanted a trip down memory lane - can't believe how much I still remembered from decades ago! I still love it, though it's slow by today's standards but still nice to see what good family films used to be like. Would recommend to any parent of small kids :) Nice to see a film that had no CGI in it whatsoever!!

i like movies with Dean Jones in them as he is a very talented, funny actor; underrated as most truly talented actors always are.
it was funny, fast paced for a movie of the 70's. it was heart touching in parts as well. altogether edifying and left me feeling happy and refreshed as a movie should and used to when i was young. some parts were corny such as barking at a duck and a duck wanting to get irradiated, however it is still very enjoyable.
