LSOH is pretty much my religion. I'm not exaggerating at all when I say that it saved my life, as well as the life of someone else in my school. Yes, I was contemplating violent actions, and LSOH saved me. That's why I get so riled up when people say it's just a play. It's more than that. It's a tool for helping people. I wish I could say that about, say, Ren and Stimpy, which is very entertaining, but probably hasn't saved any lives.
As for the movie, I heavily dislike the theatrical ending. I'm okay with Seymour and Audrey living, and I think getting rid of their deaths wasn't such a bad idea. What WAS a bad idea was Seymour and Audrey living happily ever after in Somewhere That's Green. The story is all about how you're not supposed to feed the plants. Seymour may have defeated the plant, but he got out of Skid Row with Audrey using the money he got from feeding it in the first place.
If I was the director, and the studio told me to change the ending, I would, but I wouldn't reward Seymour. Eliminating the punishment is one thing. Replacing it with a reward is another.
If you excuse me, I have a dead horse to beat.
