It's widely regarded as the WORST MOVIE OF ALL TIME -- and even Lea Thompson, star of the 1986 catastrophe, agrees ... "Howard the Duck" was a steaming pile of animatronic crap.

The 51-year-old actress was out in NYC yesterday when we asked about the cult classic -- and she bit her tongue, telling TMZ, "I'm happy that people like it, but I don't think it was a great movie."

No kidding, it won the 1987 Razzie Award for Worst Picture ... and critics PANNED the George Lucas-produced movie for years thereafter.

Then again, Lea did that incredible underwear scene...

Definately not an oscar winner, but it was a fun movie with a silly premise. As a kid I had fun with it. And thanks TMZ for the panty. scene. Haven't seen it in years.

I liked Howard the Duck. I thought it was campy. Lots of great Actors in it too.

All movies do not have to be block busters.

this is a movie that deserves a reboot! if some dam movie named "TED" could do well at the box office, then "Howard The Duck" would tear up the numbers. as for lea thompson, i'll blast my hugh blk missle up that pretty pink ass.

It's a classic guilty pleasure film. Esp. for those of us who were kids during that time.
