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...

Now she says it sucked??? Maybe she should have said this when the movie came out and saved a lot of people a lot of money.

:) I love the movie myself. Yeah, I know it can be very (very very) corny but I always loved it; probably because I was a kid and it was very weird when I first watched it.

Stan Lee offered George Lucas any of the Marvel properties and he selected Howard the Duck,,,,,Perhaps he needed the write off ?
