“It’s true! I chopped him up. But I didn’t kill him!”
The best musical yet about a homicidal alien plant, this zippy little wonder held a spot in the rotation of movies played most often on the store TV’s back at Videoville.
The songs are fun, the colors pop, and a great string of cameos (Bill Murray! John Candy! Steve Martin as a motorcycle-riding dentist!!) perfectly mesh.
Holding it all together is Rick Moranis, as a plant-selling nerd who stares down the big, green beastie with the unquenchable appetite.
“Wait for me, Audrey! This is between me and the vegetable!”
