About the Movie

George Lucas presents Howard the Duck - the comedy adventure about a fast-talking, cigar-chomping, beer-loving duck from a parallel universe who somehow winds up in Cleveland! The incredible fantasy has Howard the object of everybody's desire, in love with a rock singer (Lea Thompson), and doing battle with the evil Dark Overlord as he attempts to return to his own planet. One of the most talked-about movies of all time, the wacky, elaborately produced spoof of life, love, comic books and horror movies is a hidden treasure the whole family can enjoy.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: 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. – Caryn James, New York Times, Jul 9, 2014

Rotten: The movie is too scuzzy to beguile children, too infantile to appeal to adults. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jul 9, 2014

Rotten: 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. – Jane Galbraith, Variety, Jul 9, 2014

Rotten: For all those who cottoned to the charm of the comic books, the duck stops here. – Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times, Jul 9, 2014
