42 Word Retrospective: Howard the Duck dir. Willard Huyck

Howard the Duck dir. Willard Huyck (Lucasfilm, 1986) Though not the outright flop of lore, this hand-me-down from George Lucas’ Star Wars clique prevaricates disastrously between child-orientated performances and inexplicably adult humour. It remains a must-see film, however, if only for Jeffrey Jones as a demonically possessed Ed Rooney cross-pollination.
