About the Movie
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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A full-blown movie musical, and quite a winning one.
Fresh: You can try not liking this adaptation of the Off-Broadway musical hit -- it has no polish and a pushy way with a gag -- but the movie sneaks up on you, about as subtly as Audrey II.
Fresh: A fractured, funny production transported rather reluctantly from the stage to the screen.
Fresh: Screen writer and lyricist Howard Ashman has mastered the essence of '80s humor, recycling the old with a hip knowingness, all with a morbid, outrageous edge.
Okay, I am NEVER one to say this unholy sentence, EVER... but... The movie is far superior to the off-Broadway version. With one exception... Ellen Greene needs to leave. Just... No. Her character voice works with the dialogue, I guess, but it ruins her singing for me. "Somewhere That's Green" makes me cringe every single time I watch it... But I still watch it, out of a morbid curiosity, trying to figure out how she possibly was satisfied with herself after recording it.
Rick Moranis just gets a "YES." from me. Nuff said. YES.
Vincent Gardenia is just great.
Steve Martin. Need I say more? :)
Crystal, Chiffon, and Ronette, those sassy lassies get a thumbs up. Love the sassafrass!!!
And I must say... The big lady with the opening solo in "Down On Skid Row" IS AMAZING!!!
Yup. That's pretty much it. Best movie ever. :)

Great Movie, Great Quality
Little Shop of Horrors
This is my all time favorite movie, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys the original off-Broadway show. I’m just a little disappointed the movie soundtrack and the Director’s Cut aren’t on iTunes Store.
