    Wow! after all these years, it still totally rocks!

    What can i say that hasnt already been said about talking ducks in movies? it just goes well together, and it most certainly fits here. Howard the Duck captivaes you and never lets you go. From the beginning when the duck is reading 'playduck' magazine to the tear jerking ending when lea thompson kisses howard, you want to see them together forever...but at the end howard does play a wicked guitar, which in my humble opinion makes him the best duck ever in a movie, bar none, if you have a VHS recorder and a dollar rental store around, go out right now and rent it! you wont be disappointed!

    My God.

    Perhaps the greatest film starring a talking duck, of all time! I challenge you to name a worthy challenger. Howard the Duck is just a cool movie, watch it, buy it, and watch it again.

    A timeless movie.

    A timeless movie.

    Howard was a movie loved by many children. This DVD is for the inner child in each fan.

    Not for young kids

    My husband had to have this movie... why...I am not sure. It was OK, but not great.
    Some of it would probably scare little ones, IF they scare easy.

    It also had some partial nudity that I was NOT expecting, so I don't think it is properly rated.
