Seymour Krelborn is a nerdy orphan working at Mushnik's, a flower shop in urban Skid Row. He harbors a crush on fellow co-worker Audrey Fulquard, and is berated by Mr. Mushnik daily. One day as Seymour is seeking a new mysterious plant, he finds a very mysterious unidentified plant which he calls Audrey II. The plant seems to have a craving for blood and soon begins to sing for his supper. Soon enough, Seymour feeds Audrey's sadistic dentist boyfriend to the plant and later, Mushnik for witnessing the death of Audrey's ex. Will Audrey II take over the world or will Seymour and Audrey defeat it?Written by
Some Fun Now is actually a cover of Little Shop Of Horrors, the show's theme song. (It may actually be the other way around; since Some Fun was written first and for another show; and then show writer Allen Menken poached that song and converted it for this show.) See more »
During the "Somewhere That's Green" number, Audrey dusts the house with a synthetic fiber static cling duster that wasn't invented until 1973, about 15 years after the movie takes place. See more »
On the twenty-third day of the month of September, in an early year of a decade not too long before our own, the human race suddenly encountered a deadly threat to its very existence. And this terrifying enemy surfaced, as such enemies often do, in the seemingly most innocent and unlikely of places...

"Special Thanks" are given to Paul Dooley, because his scenes as Patrick Martin were cut and re-cast with Jim Belushi. Dooley's scenes are restored for the Director's cut, and consequently Belushi gets the "Special Thanks" instead. See more »
Around late December of 2012 or early January 2013, Deleted and alternate scenes popped up on the Internet. They claim to be from from "the only work print ever shown to preview audiences." These scenes include: -A slightly different prologue with no titles and a different narrator. (This narrator is the one used on the film's official soundtrack)
-A deleted line from Audrey: "You don't meet nice boys when you live on Skid Row, Mr. Mushnik"
-There are various alternate shots of people singing in "Skid Row (Downtown)"
-There is an alternate shot of the 3 girls singing before "Grow for Me"
-A shot of Wink Wilkerson during his shooting sound effects, he says "What a rotten shot"
-An alternate orchestration and a few different "feeding" shots of "Some Fun Now" (Like the Prologue, this version, as opposed to the one in the movie is on the actual soundtrack of the film)
-In the dentist's office before he dies, there's a shot of Orin laughing and yelling "Oh God!" over and over. (Also far in the background it almost sounds like someone's saying "Cut!")
-Seymour feeding Orin to Audrey II is significantly longer, more violent, and has a different orchestration. There are more shots of Seymour chopping him up as well as a shot of Seymour feeding Orin's other leg and head to Audrey II.
-"The Meek Shall Inherit" is in it's entirety. The Limo driver says "...and you're a meek little guy" in a deep voice, it's unclear as to whether or not he may be Levi Stubbs. The song is, once again, the same as on the official soundtrack.
-There's an alternate scene with Seymour and Audrey where he talks about the plant and if she would still like him if he wasn't famous. It's pretty close to the stage version, except a gag near the end where they break out into "Suddenly Seymour" and then it abruptly stops. It was reused in the Theatrical Ending.
-The original ending sequence where Audrey II takes over and rampages through New York in a B-Movie fashion is in color. It differs only slightly from the Blu-Ray "Directors Cut", mainly the end, it just cuts to black and says "THE END?!?"(An abbreviated cut of this version of "Don't Feed The Plants" is on the film's soundtrack) See more »
I certainly don't understand the low rating on here for this film - if you've never seen it before don't let that put you off watching it.
LSOH was my 'family movie' as a kid, introduced to us by our dentist uncle. Everything about it is just perfect it - is funny, self-aware and contains too many brilliant scenes to count. The songs are consistently great and the casting is spot on. I especially love all the amazing cameos: Bill Murray, John Candy etc.
Whenever I'm ill or feeling down, all I need to do to feel better is just watch this film. I never trust anyone says they don't like this film!
