What rhymes with
Ooooh, Howard the odd choice for Marvel to make for it's first comic to big screen adaption and after it hit the theater like a rotten egg in the mid 80's, I'm surprised that they made it to 99 with X Men.      Even odder was George Lucas as one of the creators of the movie chose this for a movie.  Howard the Duck was a weird 70's comic about a duck who had weird adventures with his friend Beverly.  Howard wasn't the cute kind of ducky …

There are some movies which you see and honestly believe were made by people who were either high in marijuana haze or expected their audiences to be. The Wizard of Oz comes to mind.

This movie was set back in a time where graphics were new to all of us. A person in a duck costume is carried away into earth by some type of quake or so he thought....      This movie has a lot of twists and turns and I enjoyed it very much so. I think my girls liked it a lot but I do feel the movie dragged a little at the end. Overall I felt the movie was still worth a 3 and I think this movie is good for kids between the ages of about 7 years old and up.
