Howard the Duck

type
  • Movie

After a clutch of Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies, George Lucas turned his gold-plated producer’s touch to a duck from outer space, Howard the Duck. Huge mistake. Finally making its DVD debut, the notorious flop remains a cautionary tale of big-budget ineptitude. And a bedroom scene between Thompson and her feathered pal is just creepy. Lucas doesn’t turn up on the EXTRAS, where we learn John Cusack auditioned to voice Howard. D
