Howard the Duck

Recommended Posts

Please do Howard the Duck! It's on Netflix instant, it's an insane, expensive window into the increasingly poor judgement of George Lucas. And it has duck boobs. That's right, duck boobs. If you've never seen it, trust me, it's an experience.

I lived over seas for a few years and this movie, along with police academy were the only english speaking films I could get a hold of for a while. Damn, I had a crazy childhood.

 

This is a great one, and until Troll 2 was often spoken of as the worst movie.

I AGREE!!

 

You guys have Howard the Duck listed in your iTunes description as an example of a bad movie, yet it hasn't been covered!

 

please oh please. It's the only movie where I've fallen asleep during an airplane chase.

Nothing says PG kids movie like a pornography reading duck and, effectively, suggested bestiality.

Totally do this!

I thought I had missed an episode because this is mentioned in the description.

 

I\m not crapping on this movie I just think it wasn't as good as I remembered it to be when I saw it when I was kid. Looking back on it now, I'd have to ask what was I thinking? And shame on my parents for letting it happen.

I watched this as a kid and loved it! I don't know what was wrong with me because I've tried to watch it as an adult and wondered what the heck did I like about it. It's absolutely terrible. And so much cheesiness that you can't help to smile. I believe this movie is the perfect description for a bad movie and you know that because it's in your description. That is why you should cover it.

C'mon... what woman wouldn't be sexually attracted to a toddler-sized-duck?

 

(Even when I was 13 I was kinda disgusted by the whole implication that Lea Thompson was about to get it on with Howard at the end of the movie... at least that's how I remember it?)

I had that same experience with Buckaroo Bonzai; I loved it when I was..oh, I dunno..ten years old or so. I tried to watch it last year, and couldnt even get through it.

 

Have yet to watch Howard the Duck as of late. Liked it when I was younger; but prob have the same WTFWIT? eureka moment if I try to re-watch it.

The only thing worse than paying money to see this flick in a theater (which I did) ... is seeing it on a date with a stupid girl who thought it was the funniest thing ever and could not stop laughing. When Howard started playing guitar at the end, I thought she was going to wet herself.

I love this podcast! I think Howard The Duck would be a great movie for a 'How Did This Get Made?' episode.

Come on, Marty McFly's mom fucks an anthropomorphic duck. This needs to be discussed!

If you think Carrie shows some awesome bush and tits in the openning credits, you haven't seen anything if you haven't seen the first 5 minutes of this thing.

The comic is actually one of the most acclaimed of it's era for Marvel comics. Apparently the producers where big fan of the anti-authoritarian satire of the source material. And this was made. Very depressing. DO IT!

I watched this as a kid and even then it kinda bored me. The only redeeming qualities: this was the first time I saw a woman in her underwear on-screen and I loved that there was a talking duck.

Good lord. This fucking movie. I saw this my sophomore year of college, and while the end credits were rolling, my friend eloquently stated "That's one for the ages." It is indeed. It's the rarest kind of bad movie; so insane it becomes accidentally sublime. This is an almost transcendent movie experience in the worst way. Duck boobs. Duck condoms. The glider parked at a truck stop. "I think I'm dead. YES YOU ARE!" "If you can't take the heat, geehhadddada kitchen!" And the crown jewel, "Musta ate the chili!" God, it just keeps going. Please, please, Paul, Jason, June, do this movie!

This is one of the BEST bad movies ever. I loved it as a kid. I love it now (because of nostalgia and how terrible it is).

Late summer of 1986, my friend and my brother were going to the movies to see "One Crazy Summer"...Over the walk there, my friend eventually convinced my brother and I that we should see Howard the Duck instead. We relented and lost 110 minutes of the summer of '86 forever. To make matters comically worse, the Detroit Free Press had a nice little parental guide on all the naughty things in movies...for Howard the Duck, it listed "brief nudity"...IT WAS PAPER MACHE DUCK NUDITY!...Q. What's more arrousing than paper mache duck nudity. A. Everything!....Nevertheless, this was enough to get me and my brother grounded when my mom found out we went to this movie...Yes, this movie is sooooo bad, it LITERALLY got me grounded.
