Howard the Duck (1986) Reviews

  • Cult Classic


    This movie was made the way George and others wanted it to be!! It's a fun loving funny movie that was meant to be just that!! Just watch this movie with an open mind and looking for a laugh. I'm not going to give anything way so those that never saw this gem will see it not knowing what happens.

  • Best Marvel Movie Ever Made


    Howard was an inspiration. A hero. Best Marvel film ever. Best film of 1986. Best performance of Tim Robbins' career. Cherry Bomb was the best 80's band of them all. Howard sharing a bed with Lea Thompson's Beverly was more life changing than Slave Leia. '86 Howard (along with Ed Gale's signature voice) should have been there in the stinger for that well-received but lackluster 2014 film. Very dark day for all ducks on all planets.

  • A painfully funny 80s time capsule that should be embraced!


    Considered one of the most notorious box-office flops in history (next to the 'Road to Morocco'-ripoff 'Ishtar' with Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty the following year), 'Howard the Duck' became the laughing stock of critics and movie-goers alike when it was released in theaters in 1986. If its executive producer, George Lucas, had his way, he would have canned that movie for good. But thanks to the home video boom in the 1980s, 'Howard' would follow suit and find his way into video stores across America. Nearly twenty years later, 'Howard' is slowly being pulled from video store shelves. But it is now that a film of such poor quality can be truly appreciated. Here's how it all goes down: You are dropped onto a planet from a far-away universe, where ducks are human-like and are running the world, only to be pulled out again moments later. An everyday working-duck by the name of Howard gets sucked out of his living room on his recliner after returning to his apartment after a long, hard day. After the opening title is shown in the thundering tradition of cinematic heavyweights like '2001: A Space Odyssey', we see Howard's decent toward the planet Earth. Once he has reluctantly gotten his feet on the ground, he clashes with the dregs of society and saves the lead singer of an all-female punk band named Beverly, (played by 'Back to the Future's Lea Thompson). She tries to give him a hand, and help him get an explanation as to how he got sucked out of his living room and landed in Cleveland, Ohio. That explanation never actually makes any sense, but that doesn't matter, because better plot developments hinge upon it. With the help of a goofy lab janitor Phil (played by the immortal Tim Robbins in an early comedic role) and a big time nuclear scientist Dr. Jennings (none other than Jeffery Jones), Howard finds out that a giant laser Jennings was using went haywire, and pulled Howard down instead. But going back isn't going to be so easy, because one of Dark Overlords of Evil hitched a ride on that laser, and has plans of planet domination and destruction. And who better than to save the day than the 3'1" (3'2", that is) wise-"quacking" title character, Howard T. Duck! Although George Lucas got ripped apart for having his hands in this one, I have yet to see a movie that is so awful, so terribly bad that I have been brought to tears crying at simply recalling scenes from this flick. The opening sequences on the duck planet contain countless parodies of American pop culture, and Howard's implausible hurtle through space is enough to make even the most serious chuckle. Audiences back in 1986 didn't seem to, however. But something about watching this flop nearly two decades later makes all of these scenes so much funnier. The way I see it, our teen generation now has a funny fascination with the decade in which they were born, the 80s, and anything from it has a distinctive look and sound. American pop culture was throwing away Three's Company for MTV, LPs for tapes, and the Bee Gees for the Brat Pack. The youth took yet another step in distancing themselves from their parents, and although they furthered that schism, they too felt a strong connection the past few decades. What was happening when I was in utero? Taking my first steps? Saying my first words? Today's generation has 'Howard the Duck' as one of the most endangered time capsules of the 80s. You've got a one-of-a-kind performance by now Acadmey Award Winner Tim Robbins, whose his explanation of duck's evolutionary scale is priceless. George Lucas's own Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) special effects studio must be embarassed to have itself credited with the horrendous effects (the Dark Overlord, for one). You've got a helplessly catchy theme song, revelling in all of its cheesy 80s pop-synth glory. The jokes are terrible, the dialogue sub-par, the plot laughable. But you know what, you'll laugh you a$$ off. Join me in saving Howard from being pulled from video store shelves. Today's generation will love the waddling fowl more than the angry movie-goers who saw this dud in the theaters. Keep him alive!

  • Sexy Chick


    Sexy chick that is super slim and rocks a upskirt. No wonder the duck fell for her. Human, duck, robot everyone would fall for a chick so thin and so flaunting. Watch it for fun, watch it for fx and watch it for glam rock from the 80s Pure MAGA pure woman

  • Worth Seeing at Least Once


    This movie seems to be tragically underrated here. It's definitely not the best movie out there, nor is it the worst. It worth seeing at least once for sure. I've seen it a lot more. The movie has some great lead actors (Jeff Jones, Lea Thompson, Tim Robbins)and keeps your attention from the first scene to the last. Howard is a great character. He's not only a "duck out of water", but also a "reluctant hero" that the average person can identify with. It is not boring and combines sci-fi / fantasy with comedy, action and monster elements all rolled into one. As with many 80s movies like Back to the Future, Teen Wolf, Goonies, etc - it is great for kids, but also has jokes or situations that grown-ups can appreciate too. One of the great 80s movies that used lots of "practical" special effects. Very young kids might be frightened by some of the monster elements near the end, but it should be fine for ages 8 and over. Like I said, it is definitely worth one watch - for Lea Thompson in her underwear - if nothing else, which caused what I believe was my first boner.
