How were Gloria Katz and Willard Huyck such bad filmmakers?
And before you jokingly say, well "watch Howard the Duck and find out", I'm legitimately curious about this. I mean before Howard the Duck, they made Best Defense with Dudley Moore and Eddie Murphy. Best Defense is infamous in that the studio offered Murphy a shitload of money to "rescue" the movie (basically, the movie initially wasn't going to involve him at all) after poor test screenings.
I really don't know if I should look at Katz and Huyck as people who were simply hacks who just benefited from their association with George Lucas.
