|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Very entertaining black comedy/musical about a nebbish (played to perfection by Moranis) whose ``unusual'' new plant brings him good fortune--but turns into a Frankenstein. Greene (repeating her stage role) is a delight as his squeaky-voiced heartthrob, Martin hilarious as her macho boyfriend. But when Audrey II, the plant, turns really mean and monstrous, with super-duper special effects, the fun drains away. Based on the off-Broadway musical by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, which in turn was based on Roger Corman's 1960 low-budget black comedy (written by Charles B. Griffith).
