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.
