Review

Our Score
Making full use of a multi-million-dollar budget, Frank Oz here brings Howard Ashman's off-Broadway musical to the big screen in a way that Roger Corman (who directed a 1960 version) could only have dreamed of. It's packed with great doo-wop songs, a killer line-up of stars (Steve Martin shines brightest as the sadistic dentist) and clever horticultural special effects that underline, but never swamp, the charming theatricality of the stylised whole. The Four Tops's Levi Stubbs voices the alien Venus People-Trap that causes deliciously nerdy Rick Moranis to hack up victims for plant food and impress his Monroe-inspired lover, Ellen Greene, who reprises her award-winning stage role. This memorably weird musical is in the grand old Hollywood tradition.

Summary

A weedy flower-shop assistant grows a bizarre plant, which he discovers needs to feed on human blood to survive. It grows to a vast size and begins to talk, demanding he commit murder on its behalf. Comedy musical based on the Broadway show, starring Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Steve Martin and Bill Murray, with the voice of The Four Tops' Levi Stubbs.
