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.

Ooooh, Howard the Duck...an 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. The 1980's equivalent of that would of course be filmmaking while coked up, which would explain more than a few movies of the era. Then there are movies from the 80's which you believed were created while the filmmakers were not only coked up, but wearing rainbow-colored clothes, constantly spinning around in …

The film gets a lot of flack from both being a George Lucas failure and straying from it's comic roots, but the SPFX work is great and Jeffrey Jones is worth the price of admission.

Howard the Duck is a 1986 American comedy science fiction film directed by Willard Huyck and produced by George Lucas. Loosely based on the Marvel comic book of the same name, created by Steve Gerber and quoting scripts by Bill Mantlo,[3] the film focuses on Howard, an alien from a planet inhabited by anthropomorphic ducks, who is transported to Earth, where he meets Beverly, a struggling singer. As Howard attempts to find a way to return to his planet, he helps Beverly with her career, develops a romance with her, and finds himself having to save humanity from an evil alien monster. The film stars Lea Thompson, Jeffrey Jones, Tim Robbins, and the voice of Chip Zien as Howard. It was the first theatrically released film starring a Marvel Comics character.

Lucas proposed adapting the comic book following the production of American Graffiti, and began production on the film after stepping down as the president of Lucasfilm to focus on producing. Huyck and producer Gloria Katz's adaptation altered the personality of the character, and placed less emphasis on satirical storytelling in order to highlight the special effects work of Industrial Light & Magic. Following multiple production difficulties and mixed response to test screenings, the film was released to very poor critical and commercial reception. Criticism was made regarding the decision to shoot the film in live action rather than as an animated film and the unconvincing appearance of Howard.
