(Review originally written at 15 October 2004)

"Little Shop of Horrors" really is a movie that is fun to watch over and over again.

I'm not a big musical fan but I can appreciate a classic like "Grease", "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and a good Disney movie. "Little Shop of Horrors" is also on my list of classic musicals.

It was a good move by director Frank Oz to make the sets campy and musical like. It gives the movie an excellent feeling and atmosphere. Also the way of acting is very campy and over the top which works excellent for the movie.

The movie is filled with some nice cameo's by famous actors. My favorite cameos are by John Candy and Bill Murray both as excellent and fun characters that are good for some serious laughs. The other most fun character is played by Steve Martin in one of his best and most fun roles I've ever seen him in.

I can't say that I'm a big fan of all of the songs but still there are some good songs in the movie which makes it a successful and pleasant musical to watch and listen to.
