What is the difference between a duck? (Hotel film quote)

Ok, in the last few days I have been at several friends' houses while "Hotel" was playing (the title of the thread is a silly riddle from the movie).

It looked like the ole arty but pointless disjointed flick but I'm willing to give it a shot if someone here says it's worth it.

The difference between a duck is about a half pound of quackers. I don't do movies, so that's my only contribution.

Is that question an oldie? I thought it was just deliberate absurdity in the Alice vein.

Both, I think. What's the difference between a ____________ is quite old. The duck may be brand new.

I used to work with a guy named Duckworth. He thought the quackers was old the first time he heard it.

"Hotel" is arty? Or is it Arty the Duck. Or, I hope not, Howard the Duck?

(It is a late 60's Hollywood melodrama potboiler which became an even worse TV series).

Or perhaps you're thinking of "Hotel Rwanda," definitely not a quacker.

That doesn't sound like the Jodie Foster flick at all.

You refer to "Hotel New Hampshire" from the John Irving novel, and who's novels have been successfully filmed before and after, "The World According to Garp" and "Cider House Rules." That puts a different light on Craven's quirky humor. Not nearly as successful a film as the other Irving filmations. One good line I've used from "Hotel NH" is "he has the virsatility of a lawn mower." At least, I remember that's a line in HNH.

Still, that film is worth seeing for performances even though they lose the thread of Irving's story at several points in the filmmation. I would think Craven should rather read the book.
