Product Description

Amazon.ca

The off-Broadway comedy-horror-musical hit that ran for years makes a successful transfer to film with a bevy of big-name cameos and two perfectly cast leads. Rick Moranis is the nebbish Seymour, who pines for flower-girl Audrey (Ellen Greene) while living in the basement of florist Mr. Mushnik (Vincent Gardenia). Things start turning around for Seymour, though, after he buys a little plant during a solar eclipse, christens it Audrey II, and discovers that it likes to drink blood. Soon enough, though, Seymour finds out that Audrey II, now grown to epic proportions, is in actuality a "mean green mother from outer space" that is hell-bent on world domination. Based on the 1960 Roger Corman cheapie that featured a young Jack Nicholson, Little Shop boasts a hilarious, amazing score by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who would go on to revitalize Disney's animation arm with The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. Greene, the lone holdover from the original cast, is a ravishing, goofy Audrey, whose awkward demeanor belies a voice that could knock Ethel Merman off her feet. She's ably matched by Moranis, whose lack of a singing voice is perfectly in sync with Seymour's nerdiness. And Levi Stubbs Jr. of the Four Tops provides the lowdown, nasty-minded voice of Audrey II; his rendition of the Oscar-nominated "Mean Green Mother from Outer Space" is a showstopper. As for those celebrity cameos, Steve Martin's sadistic dentist is a masterful creation, as is Bill Murray's masochistic patient; John Candy, James Belushi, and Christopher Guest also pop up. And there was never a lovelier and funkier Greek chorus than the three Motown-fueled girls (Tichina Arnold, Michelle Weeks, and Tisha Campbell) who appear throughout the film. --Mark Englehart

By far, probably the second of the most funniest movies I've ever seen. Sure it has a little dark comedy in it, but it gets the job done. The actors are perfect for the job of the lame Florists, and the crazy dentist. No one could of done better. Being a fan of the stage play, I hade to see this once it came out. In fact, one of my friends starred as Audrey in the play just a couple years ago.
Dorkish Seymour, Squeaky voiced Audrey, and bossy Mr. Mushnik (Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Vincent Gardenia) aren't exactly in the most ideal place for working in a flower shop. Skid Row is not the best place on earth to live, and the occupants of the run down town all on it's own will tell that in their own way. Being a plant fanatic, Seymour finds a strange flytrap looking plant seconds after an unexpected total eclipse. It seems to be attracting customers, but there's one problem, what does it eat. After an extensive search for food, Seymour is the only one who knows that the only way to feed this thing is if you open a vein. The plant soon starts to grow. And it grows, and grows, and grows. Not only does it grow, it can talk. Surely a talking plant only comes around once in a lifetime, but how is Seymour going to keep feeding it? Audreys boyfriend, an adict dentist (Steve Martin) may just look good on a silver platter for a flesh eating plant.
I saw this when I was only a kid, and Steve Martin freaked me out. This is not for children. It may devastate them. Definetely for adults. A classic. Levy Stubbs was incredible as Audrey II. If they would've chosen someone else to do it, they would've failed. Instant 5 stars.

This is the first musical movie, i seen as a kid back in the late 1980's. It is a truly entertaining movie, it has heart and soul, moments of tasteful black comedy and it is a little mean-spirited with the "Audrey 2" character towards the end but it is all in the name of good fun. Rick Morains as the nerdy "Seymour" gives an terrific performance and he sings quite well too. Ellen Greene reprising her stage role as "Audrey". The movie has plenty of star cameos like Christopher Guest, John Candy, Bill Murray, Paul Dooley (In the "Director's Cut") and James Belushi (In the "Theatrical Cut"). But Steve Martin nearly steals the show in his small supporting role as a abusive sadistic dentist, he is a hoot in that role. The songs are outstanding, Frank Oz' direction is terrific but it is the planet of outer-space "Audrey 2" truly makes it an memorable presence. The special effects still looks great, check out the Director's Cut for the original ending. Seeing these planets destroying New York City is a real highlight! The director's cut version is darker, the characters of Seymour and Audrey dies. It is quite sad to see Audrey dies in Seymour's arms was pretty moving. I grow up watching the theatrical release, it is nice to have both cuts of this cult classic.

It was an modest success in theaters but on video, it was extremely popular. I remember watching the VHS tape, which i still have it and watching it on TV, time to time. The blu-ray has an clean if occassionally grainy anamorphic Widescreen (1.85:1) 1080P transfers for both cuts and an wonderfully digitally remastered DTS 5.1 HD Sound for both versions as well. Most of the special features are from the previous DVD's. But this is a Digibook with plenty of production photos and notes as well.

Frank Oz's masterpiece of Roger Corman's B- Schlock Horror movie of the same name. Originally produced off broadway, it had a very successful run. So... What is Hollywood to do but make it into a blockbuster with big name stars and cameos.
Ellen Greene as the plucky Audrey, who also played the part on stage, Steve Martin as the sado-masochistic Dr. Orin Scrivello, DDS, Rick Moranis as the milquetoast Seymour, Vincent Gardenia as the crusty Mr. Mushnik & the voice of Levi Stubbs as the people-eating, mean green mother from outer-space, Audrey II.
Bill Murray has a hilarious cameo as Arthur Denton, the pain loving dental patient. He screams CANDY BAAAAR whilst the dentist inflicts pain upon him! John Candy cameo as the radio announcer, Wink Wilkinson, Jim Belushi as Patrick Martin, Christopher Guest as the first flower shop customer.
Great musical numbers from all, especially Ellen Greene who has one of the best set of pipes EVER!
Great family movie with only mildly irreverent language.
Happy Watching!

Format: DVD
Little Shop of Horrors is the definitive modern musical comedy. The music, as written by Alan Menkin, is melodic and beautiful, with some of the best lyrics in recent memory. The pacing is quick, with sharp directing by Frank Oz and great comedic performances by Steve Martin, Ellen Greene, and Rick Moranis (and the very over-rated Bill Murray, in a painfully extended cameo as a masochistic dental patient). The film knows that it isn't art, or thought-provoking, which is what keeps it from being truly campy. But what prevents it from being great is the extremely controversial, oft-discussed original ending.
In the play, Audrey and Seymour are eaten by Audrey II, and the Greek Chorus sings a cautionary song to the audience. In the movie, Audrey survives, Seymour electrocutes Audrey II, and they all live happily ever after. It wasn't always so, however. Oz had filmed the play's ending, but in test screenings, the audience was angry and appalled, so Oz opted to reshoot the film for the ending as it is.
In 1998. a Special Edition DVD was released with a VERY rough cut of the original ending, but it was pulled from the shelves by the producer after only two days. A second release DVD came out in 2000, sans original ending. The first issue DVD has become a collector's item of the highest degree, often selling at online auction sites for upwards of $100.
Well, I own that first issue DVD, and having seen what the film could have been, I can't rate it higher than 3 stars. In that ending, Audrey's death is handled with dramatic emotion now absent from the film, never playing for laughs. There is a breathtaking Death March (Now available on the New Broadway Cast Album) as Seymour carries her body to Audrey II.
