Howard the Duck is a comedy adventure about a fast-talking, cigar-chomping, beer-loving duck from a parallel universe who somehow winds up in Cleveland. The incredible fantasy has Howard the object of everybody's desire, in love with a rock singer (Lea Thompson), and doing battle with the evil Dark Overlord as he attempts to return to his own planet. The wacky, elaborately produced spoof of life, love, comic books and horror movies from director Willard Huyck features the songs of Thomas Dolby and the special effects of George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic company.
