A scientific experiment unknowingly brings extraterrestrial life forms to the Earth through a laser beam. First is the cigar smoking drake Howard from the duck's planet. A few kids try to keep him from the greedy scientists and help him back to his planet. But then a much less friendly being arrives through the beam...Written by

(at around 1h 11 mins) During the diner scene when the Overlord levitates and begins spinning Howard, the rope was edited out, but the shadow of the rope used to suspend the actor is still visible. See more »
It is so cool to hate on this isn't it? So I am giving it a 10, mainly because of all the folks that gave it a 1 to be in the in crowd...and partially because Lucas was right, it stood the test of time.
The cult following isn't because it's a bad movie, it's because it's a funny movie. Just because a midget is wearing a duck suit doesn't make it bad. Just because there is duck nudity doesn't make it bad.
I mean...we loved it with Team America. It was hysterical then. It's not funny in Howard because you are told not to laugh at it.
If you give it a chance it's well worth the admission, for jokes alone.
