A very bad movie

What was George Lucas thinking with this piece of sh*t ?!? I'm pretty sure he needed some dough and thought he found his new cash cow. No way, this is maybe the worst comic-book adapatation ever... The story is rather moronic, the main character is completely obnoxious and even the special effects do look cheap, something you wouldn't expect from a movie produced by George Lucas. Just avoid it.

Thank heavens for KFC!

I actually read the novel whilst waiting for this movie to go on general release. The story that came from the pages was entertaining, clever and in places I actually laughed out loud at the humour contained within the lines. I was so eager to get to the cinema!

Sadly the movie ‘Howard the duck’ was a travesty. Anyone who also has endured this movie will know just how disappoi... read more

Wow... what can possibly be said about this movie that hasn't already be said a thousand times? It almost seems redundant and tiresome to keep shooting such an already over-satirized target... though this movie took moments off my life I will never have back. I watched it simply to see what all the fuss was about.

I understand now...

"The duck doesn't fly, but did anyone ever really think it would? - Pat Graham, Chicago Reader Choose the part that suits your taste, but this is a case where half a movie -- either half -- is apt to be better than the whole. = Caryn James.

Movies I Saw For the First Time in 2013 (135 movies items)

"(DVD - Own) So, I don't know that Howard the Duck is a terrible movie so much as that it's existence is baffling. It's amazing how many people believed in the movie, how much time, effort, talent, and money went into it. I mean, why? Even watching a retrospective now (yes the DVD has a retrospective), everybody seems to have taken this movie pretty seriously. I just don't understand. I mean, it's not necessarily that fun, either as a comedy or for camp value. It's a highly flawed film. OK, it'"

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"Howard landed on Earth on 8 September. It was on that date in 1966 that Star Trek premiered on NBC. Popular vocalist Tori Amos auditioned for the part of Beverly Switzler, eventually played by Lea Thompson. According to reports at the time of the movie's release, George Lucas was heavily in debt (having just built the $50-million Skywalker Ranch complex) and was counting on this film to get him back in the black. When it bombed, he was forced to start selling off assets to stay afloat. His f"
