  • Based on the Roger Corman cult classic, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS slams together twisted humor, a singing plant, a sadistic dentist, and sweet and oblivious love between two skid-row denizens into a rollicking musical well worth watching again and again. Rick Moranis and Ellen Greene portray perfectly clumsy Seymour and bubbly but easily dominated Audrey as they search for a way off skid row. A strange and unusual plant Seymour found after an eclipse might be their ticket out, but the plant Seymour calls Audrey II also desires a strange and unusual food: blood. Audrey's abusive boyfriend, Orin, a dentist who enjoys inflicting pain (played to the hilt by Steve Martin), is the first to go, but who will be next? And will Audrey II's hunger ever end? Moranis and Greene sing with verve and passion, making each song a joy, and the cartoonish sets recall a stage musical even as Frank Oz wields the camera skillfully to make the most of the movie format. Fans of musicals shouldn't miss this movie, and nonfans will soon be converts.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...A full-blown movie musical, and quite a winning one....It's not hard to understand this good-natured material's durability..."
    New York Times

    "...[The] tech credits are excellent....[The] camerawork suggests a world like no other....On film the numbers are impressive set pieces, imaginatively staged with wonderful sets..."
    Variety

    "...Grandly loony, full-bodied and explosively funny. It's a movie that connects with its audience in a big way....The actors and lines are on target, the music has a swing and bite, the camera seems exuberant..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[T]he movie is one of the better movie musicals produced in our largely post-movie-musical era."
