Little Shop of Horrors

Little Shop of Horrors (1986)

9 mistakes

Factual error: When Steve Martin dies with the mask on, the inflation bulbs (the little black bags that inflate and deflate) deflate completely. Actually they should INFLATE completely and stay that way. The gas is still on full blast and Steve is no longer inhaling (which would cause them to deflate). It was done only to emphasize Steve Martin's demise but it's factually incorrect.

Continuity mistake: When Seymour tries to kill the plant he pulls a gun, the gun is a six shooter, the plant grabs the gun and fires at the guy, then he fires some more, in total the plant fires 9 shots with a six shooter...

Continuity mistake: look carefully at Rick Moranis' mouth throughout the movie- he goes from having braces on his teeth to not having them, especially in scenes where he has to sing and they would have messed up his enunciation.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Audrey 2 calls Audrey (just before she gets 'eaten'), a piece of hair is in front of the phone. Then it zooms in and all her hair is behind the phone.

Add time

Character mistake: Both in the movie (and stage) versions, Mushnik makes a verbal mistake. Seymour shows Mushnik his new plant (Audrey II) for the very first time, but seconds later when the plant suddenly droops, Mushnik asks Seymour, "Why is it always wilting like that?" Always? He's just seen the plant! The line should be, "Why is it wilting like that?" Some smart stage directors of the play version have wised up and changed the line.

Continuity mistake: In "Suppertime" (reprise) the inside of Audrey II's mouth is a vibrant purple, but during "Mean Green Mother" it is a fleshy pink.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Audrey II calls Audrey, and throughout the remainder of the film, the wedding dress is completely white. However, when she drops the phone on the floor, the skirt is blue and a different style.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Seymour is in the waiting room, holding Audrey II, the plants tongue reaches for the woman bending over and the tongue is bright yellow. At other times it is red.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Seymour has just met Orin, DDS, when Audrey and Orin are leaving on a motorcycle, and Orin asks, "You got the handcuffs?" you can see that he would have to turn right to go down the alley, but in the next shot, he just goes straight.
