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...

Geesh, you see Leah Thompson on a sidewalk and the first thing that you ask is about Howard the Duck??? Seriously dudes, stop having the infantile, mentally challenged doofus's ask celebrities questions. That movie was in the 80's for crying out loud.!!!!

I actually really loved this movie when I was a kid. And I wasn't thinking of the woman making out with an alien duck. I was excited that there was a talking alien duck!!!! Cult classic for sure!

It was a cheap movie based on a rather out there comic book series. Of course it sucked. That's what made it fun to watch.

Anyone here loving Howard The Duck must have had VERY low expectations. Or, they just have no good taste in movies what so ever.
