In the absence of anything resembling structure, character, point of view or sense of purpose, there is no place else for this empty project to go.

Reservations aside, it's hard to fault the tongue-in-bill high spirits of a movie like Howard the Duck.

For all those who cottoned to the charm of the comic books, the duck stops here.

The movie is too scuzzy to beguile children, too infantile to appeal to adults.

Daffy Duck will be pleased to hear he didn't miss any career opportunities when he wasn't chosen to star in Howard the Duck, although producers certainly could have benefited from his talents.

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.
