This is as entertaining a musical as you'll find on dvd.

It's got it all--catchy tunes that you can sing along with on the second time through (and the third and fourth), a glitzy-glammy chorus of Motown beauties, a bespectacled zero who grows into a love-motivated hero, an overblown blondie who finally finds what true love is, and a cast of living-color minor characters drawn from the pages of lurid fifties magazines. Oh--and a monster villain with a marvelous singing voice that will drink your blood and eat you whole, if given the chance.

The producers took an off-Broadway hit to film with nary a misstep other than changing the ending (In the original, the monster wins.) after movie audiences proved unwilling to accept a tragic ending for the heroic couple.

I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. Violence was an underlying theme (girl with abusive boyfriend, etc.)

Feed Me Seymour!
R. J Metz | Blacksburg, VA | 05/17/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"What can I say, I think that this is a wonderful movie and musical. The setting takes place in a plant shop that is on the verge of bankruptcy. Mr. Mushnik is the boss and Audrey and Seymour work for him. Seymour buys a human eating plant for Audrey and names it Audrey 2. Seymour is hopelessly in love with Audrey, but unfortunately Audrey already has a boyfriend, Orin. Orin is a dentist and treats Audrey like dirt. Deep down, Audrey would rather be with Seymour than wit Orin. Finally Seymour kills Orin and feeds him to Audrey 2.OK, here is why I did not give this movie five stars. As I imagine you all know, the play and the movie are different. In the play at the End Audrey 2 eats Audrey and Seymour feels so lonely without her that he commits suicide by feeding himself to the plant. In the movie on the other hand the shop caught fire and the plant didn't survive, but Audrey and Seymour got married. Another problem with the movie was that the poignant love song, "Suddenly, Seymour," was well overdone. Missing also is the catchy song "Closed For Renovation."Other than that, this is a wonderful movie, and I would chose to watch it time and again. So go ahead, buy it. You will not be sorry."
THE version to have (so why is it not available?)
05/25/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recently checked this out over the weekend, prepared to merely re-watch an old favorite-but boy, is there a lot of cool "add ons" in this version made for DVD! First of all, the film comes letterboxed-only (some people like having the choice, but if you've seen this in a movie theater, you notice a LOT of stuff cut off at the edges by "blowing it up" to full screen), a walk through commentary by legendary puppeteer (voice of ms. piggy/grover) turned director-Frank Oz that lends a humourous and insightful (if sometimes technical)overview from the one guy most qualified to talk about its behind the scenes trials and tribualations. You'll be surprised at just how much work and planning really went into it. And, best of all-the legendary original ending! Yes, it's true, the off-broadway musical (and even the Corman B-movie original) had a VERY different ending. This is where Oz's comments come in particularly handy as first hand guide to the very tough decisions a filmaker has to make regarding his work if the people paying for it ultimately call the shots. So why is it not available? Well, turns out the lost ending footage is owned by producer David Geffen, who did not clear or approve its inclusion on the disc. Could be because presented with another choice, fans of this movie may agree with Oz (and screenwriter Howard Ashman, who died in 1991) on the original ending having a much greater impact. So if you can find this disc, by all means check it out!"
People, It's the Original Ending to Little Shop!
David W. Sinclair | 08/06/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Alright. If you saw Little Shop, you saw this ending;
Seymour electrocutes Audrey 2 and Audrey and Seymour escape.
This is how is really ends;
Audrey 2 tries to eat Audrey but Seymour pulled her out. They go outside, but it was too late. Before Audrey dies, she sings a reprise of Somewhere That's Green that will tear your heart out. She sings it so Seymour can understand that as soon as she dies she wants to be in the plant. So he'll understand that they'll always be together. As soon as she's done singing she sadly dies.
Lyrics to Somewhere That's Green (Reprise)
You'll wash my tender leaves,
You'll smell my sweet perfume,
You'll water me and care for me,
You'll see my bud and bloom,
I'm feeling strangely happy now,
Contented and serene,
Don't you see...
I'll finally be...
Somewhere That's Green...
Seymour feeds her to the plant, runs to the top of a building and tries to commit suicide, but a man named Patrick Martin, tells him that he took one of Audrey 2's cuttings and made hundreds of Audrey 2s. Seymour walks back in. Audrey 2 sings Mean Green Mother (as he did in the present version)
but swallows Seymour whole. It turns out,when people buy Audrey 2, they all are talked into feeding it blood. It all comesto world destruction and a song,Finale (Don't Feed the Plants).
Audrey 2 had won.
The script is on [...]"
