"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 »
In 1998, Warner Bros. released a special edition DVD of the film, with the original ending as an extra. A black and white dupe made after the LA preview, it was still in rough form, with some music and sound effects missing, and various special effects unfinished. Days after the release, producer David Geffin had the DVDs recalled and replaced with a version without the original ending. As a result, the recalled DVD has become a much sought-after collector's item. The original ending, as seen on the DVD, has also been uploaded to various torrent and video sharing sites. See more »
I have known this film since I could crawl. And it was very cool when I was in it at my high school. Ah, memories. *sniff*, oh sorry! The musical is a lot of fun to watch. It is a little cheesy on some levels. But you'll enjoy it somewhat.
Rick Moranis is a wonderful actor. I really enjoyed him as Seymor. The rest of the cast delivers a great musical. Steve Martin is one of the best characters in "Litle Shop". And as well as the extremely talented John Candy.*hint* :D
I would recommend this for a fun time. But I am still curious about the original ending.
