The mid-80s were a crazy time. And there’s no greater evidence of that fact than “Howard the Duck.”
Produced by George Lucas, starring Marty McFly’s mom from “Back To The Future” as a struggling rock star who almost has sex with an alien duck the size of a kindergartener, before the pair go on the run from a scientist possessed by a space demon played by the principal from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” Oh, and it’s also the film debut of Tim Robbins from “Shawshank Redemption.”
It’s one of the weirdest movies ever made. I’m surprised it took us so long to get around to reviewing it.
