Little Shop Of Horrors My Secret Shame

Well last weeks admissions of secret shame was so much fun I decided to try it again this week.  One of my favourite movies is Little Shop of Horrors.  Now if asked in the real world, I would certainly fib and pick something more along the lines of The Usual Suspects, Dances With Wolves, Malcolm X, or even Fried Green Tomatoes.  Secretly I must admit however that I have a special place in my weirdo heart for Little Shop of Horrors.  I like it so much that I couldn't chose a favourite scene, and so this week I'm putting up two clips.  Hit me in the comment section with your secret shame movies.

Whatever! Little Shop of Horrors is one of my all time favorite movies! There is nothing to be ashamed of!

I'm with Constintina, if LSOH is something to be ashamed of then I'll be stoned. That movie is my shit!

As for an actual secret shame...I dunno, I have a special place in my heart for Star Trek movies. I'd never admit that in public so you didn't see me say that.

Hmmm, I'll admit sometimes I still like Disney movies...

I love Mrs. Doubtfire, no movie has succeeded in making me laugh and cry like that one.

Center Stage... making it as a ballet dancer in new york has never seemed more tough yet glamorous.

Mine would have to be either the sister act movies or the mighty ducks movies. I love them so much.
and LSOH is fucking awesome my husband has never seen it and it blows my mind

Renee said...

@mzbitca wow mighty ducks...I guess it could be worse you could have said Howard the Duck

mzbitca said...

Hey,
Ducks fly together

Can you get any more inspiring?

At least Little Shop of Horrors has some cult credit

Two secret shames:

The Bodyguard. The combination of Whitney Houston's incredible voice and Kevin Costner's character as a stoic, deadly, and hunky bodyguard is irresistible.

The Beautician and the Beast. Fran Drescher as a New York beautician and Timothy Dalton as an Eastern European potentate. How can it be anything but hilarious!

@Bryn you are a better woman that I, Drescher's voice sends me right around the bend.

I miss Mr. Levi Stubbs. He totally made this movie.

My guilty pleasure is Animal House. Awesome sound track.

I loved Babe, too. Great anti-conformist message buried in a movie for the wee ones. I cried like a baby.

Hey, it's not a shame: for our first Christmas together, I gave Mr. Feasance a copy of this film (he'd mentioned it as a childhood favorite) and a Venus flytrap. We still watch it together all. the. time; unfortunately, Audrey III left us about three months ago.

My secret shame is not so much the movie, but the fact that I dance along to Hairspray when I'm alone.

Best Little Whore House in Texas....does anyone remember that little gem? I watched it like 50 times in my teens...there is just something about Dolly and Burt romping in a bedroom in their underwear that really gets me to feeling fine....

I like anything with dancing - I do - I admit it - even Footloose - truly; excpet Flashdance, I really really don't like Flashdance- but Strictly Ballroom is my eat chocolate and wallow movie - AWESOME.

Canadian Stage Company (really reaosnable tickets too) - did a production of Little Shop last year doug and I saw - it ROCKED.

"Alarm goes off at 7 and you start uptown, you put in your 8 hours, for the powers that have always been . . . then you go downtown . . . where the cabs don't stop . . . where the food is slop . . . where the hopheads flop in the snow, down on skidrow" :D

Danyell said...

I agree! Why "secret"? Why "shame"? This movie is glorious!!

Charles said...

Conan The Barbarian. There's something about the Governator at his worst. Plus, James Earl Jones as the head of an incomprehensibly stupid snake cult. What's not to love?

What's wrong with LSOH? Only shameful secret I have is that unlike most people who watched that film, I cheered for Audrey II and was crying when he was killed at the end. As you can probably guess...I would have preferred the original ending they ended up cutting out.

Then again, I tend to cheer for Godzilla when he's on the rampage....someone has to stand up for humans always being the protagonists...;)
