Description

Seymour--an orphan and a nerd who works in a run-down flower shop on Skid Row--spends his time doing menial tasks and dreaming of his co-worker, Audrey. Then, one day, just after an eclipse of the sun, Seymour discovers a strange plant. The exotic plant draws customers, saves the flower shop from bankruptcy and makes Seymour a hero in Audrey's eyes. But the plant has a rather unique appetite ... and it's getting interested in Audrey too.

    Help.
  • Best film adaptation of a Broadway musical. Ever.

    Frank Oz chiseled his name into the cinematic history books when he made this film. The smash hit Broadway musical that was itself an adaptation of an old Roger Corman B-movie, (go look it up – it’s Jack Nicholson’s first on–screen performance!), the gonzo absurdity (intentionally) over-flowing with hilarious anarchisms “Little Shop of Horrors” is nothing short of pure cinematic bliss. No review of this film, (or original Broadway musical), is complete without mentioning the jaw-dropping performance by Ellen Greene as Audrey. As if her star-power and perfect Broadway vocal chops weren’t enough, this is a movie that also boasts – to name just a few – the talents of Levi Stubbs (as the voice of “Audrey II”), Rick Moranis, John Candy, BILL MURRAY, and of course Steve Martin shows up to give THE BEST CAMEO PERFORMANCE OF ALL TIME. There are masterpieces and then there are Masterpieces. File this one under the latter, and MAKE SURE YOU WATCH THE DIRECTOR’S CUT because the “theatrical version” is the stupid studio-managed version of the film wherein the ENTIRE THIRD ACT IS COMPLETELY CHANGED FROM THE ORIGINAL BROADWAY ENDING BECAUSE THEY ARE COWARDS WHO WERE AFRAID OF UPSETTING AUDIENCES.

    This was my first introduction to musicals in movie format, I must’ve been about 7 when i first fell in love with Menken’s master piece ! Great film, cheesy, quirky and fun. Most definitely a must watch!!!

    Awesome musical with hilarious performances by Steve Martin and Bill Murray. Levi Stubbs is excellent as the voice of the alien. Very entertaining!
