Before you've got to see him in Guardians of the Galaxy, he had his own adventure here with Lea (groovy music, too) he fought overlord Jeffery & sometimes found our world very different from his. It was still entertaining as I saw it twice back then, yet Marvel needs to release another film of Howard for sure because he's one cool duck but also has quite an adventure in our world. An underrated funny & weird classic!
OK, I had certain prejudices against this film. The DVD stayed for about seven years on a shelf before I dared to watch it. But there are also some movies by Angelopoulos and Pasolini I should have seen a long time ago on the same shelf. So it's not a personal aversion against George Lucas that was at stake here. I believe it was the title of the film that was so infantile. Anyway I saw 'Howard'. Already forgotten.
Every film fanatic has a past and I suppose this is mine. Certain films we see when we are young and impressionable mark us for good or for ill. Saw this back in the day with my mom. To my unsophisticated, pre-teen eyes the film was a hoot. Although, I can also understand why people are kinda horrified by it now. The general irreverence of the whole misbegotten enterprise still appeals to my perverse sense of humor.
Not very good, but it is notable for being the first (only?) mainstream movie featuring an amorous encounter an anthropomorphic duck. George Lucas should have tapped David Lynch to direct this instead of RETURN OF THE JEDI.
The 80's.... a magical time when movies with Duck Tits and Duck Condom jokes could be rated PG. The more I think about it, it's really strange that Lea Thompson is in one movie where she wants to fuck her son, and another movie where she wants to fuck a duck... and both of them have killer guitar solos.
