    There is porn that is less sexualized than the first half of the Howard the Duck film. The whole thing is just mental. Still I do like it, I just don't exactly know why.

    Película mala, mala. Pero tiene algo que la hace interesante (probablemente sea lo ochentera que es).

    Howard the Duck - 6/10. I can't say it really held up, but I still love this childhood favorite. Incredibly goofy with some awesome music.

    I did find a few moments in "Howard the Duck" enjoyable or at least tolerable, but it suffers from mostly weak gags, average performances, and it overall feels all over the place in terms of it's tone.

    A sarcastic humanoid duck is pulled from his homeworld to Earth where he must stop an alien invader. - IMDB

    Crazy. This film is really crazy. I knew nothing about the comic growing up and nor do I know anything about it now. I remember seeing it as a kid and thinking then, "What the fuck did I just watch?" I also remember being somewhat freaked out by Jeffrey Jones's alien overlord character voice. Specifically in the truck. That image…

    What were they thinking? Even in the best of hands this would be a dumb idea for a movie.

    I have mixed feelings about this.
    The bad: Horrible, horrible humour. Every attempt at a joke is cringeworthy.
    The good: It's so bizarre. The Dark Overlord and the eighties special effects are awesome!

    The notorious flop, HOWARD THE DUCK is a ridiculously entertaining with adventure, awesome special-effects, a cool monster, silly Tim Robbins and hot Lea Thompson. The humor here is surprisingly adult and bizzare, making the movie more memorable and never boring. For me, what doesn't work is the duck-suit, the character of Howard is actually somewhat interesting; not being stiffly-earnest, he has actual personality. Look at those eyes though, the duck looks so lifeless. Just a minor distraction, but once the…

    Equal parts amazingly, balls-out bizarre and tediously boring.

    George Lucas and fellow bad filmmaker/cocaine enthusiast, Willard Huyck, attempt to turn a surreal, satirical cult comic into a borderline pornographic alien invasion movie for children. It's almost a cautionary tale.

    Just awful. The pacing is just insane, absolutely insane. If you want a crash course on how not to write a film, this is it.

    Everyone in the film reacts to Howard differently, some think it's a costume, others think he's a monster, others are totally cool with him. It's nuts.

    I know it was the 80's but Howard looks like a Muppet nightmare.

    Despite being quite dark ( and duck tits level of disturbing) for what's supposed to be a kids film I don't really see the incredible awfulness that has given the film it's reputation. Even being quite fond of a pun the 1000 or so duck related ones grate and most of the laughs are unintentional. There's far too many dull periods but once the story gets going it can be fun in the right mind and as guilty pleasure/ prime example of 80's cheese I can see why people have a good time with it. Both stars are for Lea Thompson mind, god bless her

    What, in the name of heavens, did I just watch? I feel like I need Jesus after seeing this since everyone involved in the making of this film has to be beyond salvation.
