Little Shop of HorrorsThis 'the looniest, nuttiest, most outrageous movie musical comedy in years' centers on a skid-row florist's 'mean green mother' of a monster plant that seems to have a craving for blood and soon begins to sing for his supper.

Critic Reviews of "Little Shop of Horrors"Chicago ReaderMay 25, 2011
The best moments in this 1987 release belong to Dr. Steve Martin as a dentist with a professional yen for pain.TIME MagazineAugust 25, 2008
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.VarietyAugust 25, 2008
A fractured, funny production transported rather reluctantly from the stage to the screen.Time OutJune 24, 2006
This wild and witty musical is great fun.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
A full-blown movie musical, and quite a winning one.ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
I have seen a lot of musicals (probably more than most people under the age of 50), and few are as lively and fun as Little Shop of Horrors.Cinema CrazedOctober 01, 2014
A pulp pop twist on the original Roger Corman horror comedy that's funny, fun, catchy, and well worth its reputation.Empire MagazineMay 25, 2011
Some of the slower tunes tend to grind but the sort of musical/ retro irony is still amusing in places. Not if you don't like dentists though.Common Sense MediaDecember 19, 2010
Comic book creepiness, jazzy tunes, and fab cast.Filmcritic.comAugust 04, 2009
As a whole, the story is uninteresting, most of the characters contrived, and the vast majority of the 94 minutes is almost instantly forgettable, especially the man-eating plant from outer space.Film4August 25, 2008
One and a half hours of freaky, scary nonsense set to a killer doo-wop soundtrack.TV GuideAugust 25, 2008
For all its expensive excess, fails to recapture the spirit of the original.
