Little Shop of Horrors

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Trivia: To make the effects of Audrey II look convincing, the animatronic was usually shot at a lower frame-rate, such as 12 frames per second, and then played back at the standard 24fps. This sped-up the shots and made the animatronic's motions look more fluid and lifelike. In order to compensate, whenever a human actor would be in-shot with Audrey II, they would have to act in "slow motion" in order for their movement to look right at 24fps. (You can kinda tell in a few shots if you look closely).

Question: Near the end of the song "I am a dentist", is Orin saying "and a success" or "and I say sit"?

Answer: He says "and a success". He's singing about his mother telling him he'd become a successful dentist.
