    Howard the Duck is not the best film ever made, but it just might be the best film ever made.

    This is what you see when you lose your mind during a screening of Mystic River.

    The special effects barely earned this one an extra half-star. Other than that, this was even worse than I ever imagined.

    The terrible slapstick and never-ending duck puns suggest this is a movie for young children, but then there's incredibly inappropriate adult comedy — like Howard and Lea Thompson nearly indulging in bestiality — that make this decidedly mature. Nonsensical action sequences with garish special effects are so puzzling and incoherent, this eventually reveals itself to be a film with no intended audience. No one could derive joy or anything more meaningful from this tale of an expressionless, unlikable guy in…

    Yes, it was a bomb at the box office, yes, and it's cheesy. The idea of a duck from space crash landing on Earth and joining a rock band is nuts... but this movie is fun anyway. It's not great, but I enjoy it okay? Lea Thompson is great as usual, so that's another plus for this movie.

    Fritz the Cat meets Follow That Bird meets Streets of Fire. What a mess. Jeffrey Jones is wonderful, though.

    I know the movie was pretty old, but it seems like the duck could have a bit more of an "edge". I never really noticed in the Back to the Future films, but Lea Thompson was really hot in this one - if you were able to get past her penchant for beastiality.

    Howard the Duck boats a heap of incredible practical effects from the peak of the era that demand to be seen. The grande finale monster battle / light show has some tremendous shots that are pretty unparalleled.

    Perfectly adequate 80s sci-fi / action. Terrible as an adaptation. Still more fun that Blade Runner. While the whole package is fine if taken on…

    There's a certain level of "bad" that certain movies can achieve, and thereby become supremely entertaining, while there are certain movies that achieve another certain level of bad, and are maybe just a little too close on the side of "competent" to become thoroughly enjoyable. While I was hoping for a hi-larious experience along the lines of OVER THE TOP or NO HOLDS BARRED, what I actually got was.....HOWARD THE DUCK, a singular experience unto itself. The first 45 minutes…
