"Little Shop of Horrors" (1986) - Not all of the songs and jokes work, but when they do, they work big time. Highlights were Steve Martin's psycho biker dentist character, Bill Murray's too short but hilarious-for-every-minute-it's-on screen dental patient who loves pain, and the amazing puppetry on the monster plant.

The "Somewhere Green" ballad was surprisingly gorgeous and moving in the midst of such a wacky movie, and the love story was truly heartwarming. As ridiculous as its lyrics were, I think Martin's song about how he became a dentist because he loves to inflict pain on people should have won an Oscar for best song.
