Beverly & Howard's relationship


I was probably about 12 when I first saw this movie, but I have to say I've always found the relationship between Beverly & Howard really disturbing.

reply

It's very muddled - one minute she's about to get her tits out, until Howard stops her, then she says she's only kidding about flirting with him. She later calls him her 'boyfriend', and the final shot suggests a backstage kiss. I hope they won't be using Howard's single unwrapped condom...

It's testament to Lea Thompson's acting that we care about their relationship when the writer and director don't seem to know exactly what it is. There's a clash between what seems like an innocent kids film, and a saucy adult comedy full of sex gags that also wants to fetishise its leading lady.

Its all innocent comedy, its not meant to be in a bad way, I always thought it was hilarious that she was in love with him, lol

Howard and Beverly were always a couple in the comics you know.

Nothing wrong with interspecies romance as it worked for Star Wars humans with aliens in SW stories/comics, Vinnie and Charlene on Biker Mice from Mars (Makes sense with Charlene being human and Vinnie being an alien anthro humanoid mouse as both are mammal beings), Trek humans with aliens, Rick Mayers Jr and Minerva Mink in the Lifestyles with Minvera mink fanfiction story series, Margaret's human dad Frank with his bird wife in Regular show, Eliza and Goliath in Gargoyles, Donetello and April in Ninja Turtles and more. i believe a person in comics/movies/sci-fi fantasy stories/fanfiction/games/animation has the right to love whoever they want to love whoever they want to love even to alien beings.

If Cleo from Heathcliff or Felicia from Darkstalkers or Lola Bunny existed, i'd date either one and have fun with either one, LOL.

and Star Trek! kept Shatner in business for years!

I always thought the best Star Trek movie would have been one that brought back a dozen of Kirk's bastard offspring pissed off at him for knocking up their mom and dead set on revenge. Lord knows as many aliens as Kirk banged over the years there must be a lot of little Kirks running around the universe.

That's a misconception. There are only a couple times in the original series where it can be confirmed with certainty that he actually did the deed. And one of those women died before she could ever give birth.

They are cute together

Indeed.
