Henry is a forty-year-old man still living with his mother who accidentally grows a talking man-eating (and potentially mother-eating) plant.  At least, that is what the movie is supposed to be about.  The softcore sex scenes and hideous interior decoration tend to distract the viewer from the botanical and social aspects of the story.

Hmm... I'm surprised.  You didn't mention anything about this being a horrible rip-off or spoof of the Little Shop of Horrors.  Even though I never seen this film (I don't ever plan on it), I could obviously see what a rip-off this film is from just reading Eve's character description.  Heck, even Eve looks similiar to Audrey... or maybe Audrey looks more like that plant thing form Jumanji?  I don't know... Question

Well, since I'm on the subject of this movie, what the heck is up with the title?  It's just stupid since you said his mom got eaten about halfway into the film.

But only 1 slime?  This is clearly not a good movie (I wouldn't own it), but it has to be seen by every self-respecting bad movie aficionado at least once.

Please, Eat My Mother indeed.  This sounds terrible. The inclusion of horrible softcore porno scenes in rotten b-movie horror/sci-fi makes me a sad panda.

Another fine example would be Starcrash 2 (or Giochi erotici nella 3a galassia), which I do not recommend.

I stress the word had.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

I can't be certain what my thought process was at the time, but I probably assumed that "Little Shop of Horrors" was so mainstream that most anyone would recognize the similarity.  The rampant soft-core scenes and blue and lime green paint scheme also might have completely screwed with my brain.

But only 1 slime?  This is clearly not a good movie (I wouldn't own it), but it has to be seen by every self-respecting bad movie aficionado at least once.


I did not enjoy the experience very much, and the rating scale is based on how entertaining the film was to me.  Sextette is such an awful movie that I would recommend everyone see it, but warn them that they are going to hate me afterwards.

Sometimes I feel like a canary, and my television is the carbon monoxide-filled mineshaft.

Also, and this was only hinted at in the review, Henry is played by the same actor who was Julius in the original Planet of the Apes.

Great review! Thanks as always for the laughs. I'm putting this movie on my wish list. Yes, I know. But keep in mind that I actually enjoyed The Howling II...  TeddyR

O. K., I know I'm a smart arse but I have  to get rid of this!
This is not a ripoff of "Little Shop of Horror"! It is the remake of a ripoff. The original "Please Don't eat my Mother" was made by the King of smut, David F. Friedman - from time to time also Edward D. Wood Jr's distributor -, shot on super 8 in black & white, in 1961.

Do you have any reference to there being a 1961 version of "Please Don't Eat My Mother?"  I ask, because it does not appear on the IMDb and I could not turn up any information via several online searches.  Nor is it in any of my reference books.

I'd never heard about this either.  I'm pretty interested as well - can't think of too many non-straight horror films shot on Super 8. 

Also, I agree with Andrew on this.  I haven't seen the whole film, but what I saw of Please Don't Eat My Mother was mostly just boring and poorly made.  Audio is pretty bad, at least on the version I saw.
