Well I finally got around to watching this mess of a movie. I feel really bad for the people involved in the making of this. The plot was bizarre and the dialogue was poor. The duck was more annoying then funny. The special effects were decent but overall it was not great. I'm glad some people like this movie but I'm not one of them.

Stupid movie, but the overlords are still kinda frightening to watch! Hey, at least it got me interested into checking out the comics!

Why do people hate on this movie? I loved it growing up and still do today.

Sometimes a film is unfairly maligned. This is not one of those times. Truly unredeemable; that Howard the Duck serves only as a permanent insult to anyone who ever moved to LA with a dream.

Too childish for adults and to adult for children, it's difficult to imagine who the target audience was for this movie, but it will find it's home in the welcoming embrace of stoned college kids thirty years later.

Howard the Duck is worth watching if only for its pop culture stature as one of the most beloved and widely known of all the bad movies. It's not at all entertaining in the traditional sense, even when trying to view it from the perspective of the movie's tongue planted firmly in its own cheek, but it's a good party movie that should elicit some laughter, intentional or otherwise.

Just what in the hell was this?

Probably the most ridiculous and silly, cheesy-looking adaptation of Marvel Comics when it's just a duck from a different home world just living on ours. The filmmakers should've stick to their first plan of having this as an animated film. But besides all that, the titular character does have his moments to make this slightly enjoyable. (B-)

(Full review coming soon)

BRILLIANT!!! I loved it as a kid and love it just as much now.

This is the first Marvel movie that got me into the comics and, despite what most critics say, it's worth seeing again and again. Without Howard the Duck, other Marvel movies would never have been made decades later. Think about it.

Okay, it's dumb as hell at times and nowhere near as clever as the comics were, but it's got Lea Thompson looking like a stone fox with big '80s hair and a few funny lines, so why the hell not give it another shot?

Worth a look kids, give it a rental.

This is why I know (1986) Star Wars prequels
will be a let down.

Howard the Duck has a lot of problems, most of them aren't too bad, but it doesn't help that the film isn't terribly intelligent. The characters are pretty goofy, the appeal is confusing (is this really a kid's movie?) and the plot is a mess, the long run-time doesn't help. It does have a amusing charm to it, and the effects are campy fun.
