Recently decided to get this again as i realised there are 2 versions and was intrigued as to how much adult content was there to start with, so i am reviewing the UNCUT version, as a film fan i only really ever want to see uncut versions of films so watching it again i did enjoy it, i remember when it was released in cinemas in '86 headlines were saying that parents were dragging their kids out in disgust as Howard was bedding women and swearing on screen..well yes he does but Howard has always been portrayed this way in the comics so they were just trying to remain faithful to those i feel.
At the end of the day there are a few bits which could seem unsuitable but considering what some 15 year old kids are allowed to watch like Inbetweeners and Ted , i don't think this would cause younger viewers any harm.
The effects hold up ok especially the final creature which was made using Phil Tippets Go-motion which makes it look more articulate like the Dragon Vermithrax in Dragonslayer.
The humour is cheesy but charming and Lea Thompson looks great in the now infamous pink panties scene which caused outrage at the time.
Seeing this again kinda makes you wish they could do another one and make it even more adult.

Ha - "Howard The Duck", more notorious for the way it cut a swathe through Lucasfilm's reputation in the mid-'80s than for anything as mundane as plot, is finally coming to DVD in an (albeit probably bare-bones) Metrodome DVD Region 2 only release. Yes, I realise that it hasn't been released yet, but as I have seen the movie countless times since it's 1986 release, I feel qualified to comment early.

The story - Howard is plucked from Duckworld by means revealed later in the story, only to find himself stranded in Cleveland surrounded by the "Hairless Apes" who treat him like a freak - Apart from Beverley, teased-haired Valkyrie who fronts a band that makes Kajagoogoo look like Black Flag, and Lab Assistant Phil Blumbutt (Tim Robbins! Everybody has to start somewhere) who soon find themselves caught-up in an adventure involving The Dark Overlords Of The Universe, An Experimental Piledriver (or something) and Cajun Sushi. How can anybody NOT be excited about this?

As an added bonus, this version is apparently the uncut film (two scenes involving a condom and Jeffery Jones plugging into a car cigarette lighter via a mouth tentacle have long been excised as being too disturbing for the kiddies), and lest we forget, "The Phantom Menace" is one of the top grossing films of all time, and this one knocks it out of the park. Okay, not the hardest of feats, but trust me on this.

Let me tell you something about film critics. It's easy to pick faults in someone else's work, even if you do not have it in your power to create an equal work of art. The average film critic, by his very nature, is just a pretentious know-it-all who is quite frequently talking from the wrong end of his alimentary canal. When HTD came along in 1986 it was the first true victim to the pop culture critic.

For 22 years it has been called 'the biggest flop of all time' and other such terrible labels. Well, it cost $30 million dollars (nothing compared to today's budgets) and took $37 million worldwide and that's not even counting the higher-than-you-think rental revenue. Add it altogether and HTD is most definitely NOT the flop it is accused of being. But since it was a rather eccentric family comedy (an easy target) and one of the first films to significantly under-perform at the domestic box office (George Lucas expected the returns to be astronomical) it became a scapegoat for bad studio spending and taste.

I guess that the world needs something or someone to blame when pop culture goes wrong and the jackass critics I mentioned already seized upon Howard's failings to make a name for themselves. Derogatory soundbites are easy to come up with and everyone who hated the film used some kind of duck-themed insult to put it down and make themselves feel clever. But, when you think about it, these are basically the same people who will deliberately give a bad film a great review just to see their own name on the poster (yes, I am talking to you Paul Ross).

The film also suffered a further bad rep when George Lucas publicly disowned the film.

Howard the Duck is a Marvel based superhero of some sort. The reason why I wanted to see this film, is due that the character appeared in the Lego Marvel Superheroes game. It's not that massive. It's a quite a good film about a humanoid duck from a parallel universe brought to our world in 1986. Howard the Duck experiences his curiosity on earth and meets up with an adult girl and there is another being coming to earth and Howard must stop the invasion.

Ok, so Tim Robbins and others may want to forget this but I really love this movie and have waited for a DVD release, shame there are no real extras but no doubt many of the big names involved here have "moved on" and would regard this movie as a blot on their past history.
Sure it's not aimed at the same adult audience who loved the comic book, there's no hard hitting satire but it is at heart a fun movie and the special effects are superb.
It's a simple story of a bored duck flung out of his own world by accident and now trapped in a world he never made. He befriends a female rock singer and her "scientist" friend and an attempt to send him home threatens to bring down alien dark overlords.
Lea Thompson looks stunning with 1980's big-hair.
Watch this with an open mind and a beer, just as Howard himself would.
