I know this movie is bad. I know this movie is insulting to the Mario franchise. I know this is incredibly inaccurate to the franchise. I know a lot of people hate this movie with passions.


But i'd put it in my top ten bad movies i like.

the reason people back then didn't like it because they were trying to put a real world spin on the movie the elements from the game are there if you watch closely. the thing that get me is that this movie was hated because though it took a lot of source material from the game it was altered to be real world like. people were so caught up in being pissed that they could no see it also I like to point out that movies base off of games & TV shows & comics today are doing the same thing in other world movies like resident evil & Spiderman get love for what the same thing the Mario bros movie got so much hate for.

Okay,,,its one of those movies you arnt supposed to take seriously. In fact, come on people, its the MARIO MOVIE, (what were they expeacting, and i honestly mean that as a honest question.) And back then, mario wasnt really fully developed. It really was just to plumbers who had to rescue a princess, why, the games never said, in fact it never actuallly mentioned that the two had a crush on her or way did bowse even want the bitch anyway...And so I guess the games did'nt have much plot then. So I really dont know how you can say, "It didnt follow the plot at all" I on the other hand LOVE this movie and consider it one of the greatest flims of the 90's.

I absolutely love this movie, one of my favorites

I think what a lot of people misunderstand, is a lot of video games/cartoons simply won't translate well onto the big screen. Take for instance Mario Bros..

it's a franchise, wit a bunch of game centered around a fictional plumber who rescues some princess by traveling through pipes, eating shrooms, and stomping on brown creatures to beat some huge fire breathing spiked turtle at the end...Can't really make a movie out of that..

So great. This really captures the Max Headroom kind of atmosphere Rocky and Annabel had tried to bring to the setting. Mario and Luigi just look so stoic, and the Goombas are undeniably a threat.

I help run [link] a fansite and archive devoted to the movie. Would you mind us featuring your piece on the site under our fanart section? :)

Thanks! I hadn't noticed that other piece, so thanks for the heads-up. Both will make great additions to the site! :D

And if you haven't already, feel free to check out the site. The last few weeks we've been interviewing members of the cast and crew of the movie and uncovering lots of information previously unknown, including deleted/alternate footage, development ideas, scrapped concepts, actor interaction, and all that good stuff. You can even submit questions for future interviews on the forum, though we've just about run our course on interviews so you're welcome to join if only you want to talk about the movie (though we do have several other projects in the work that are even grander than these interviews).

Super Mario Bros. is one of the only movies I can watch, then suggest that we rewind it, and watch it again.

I've seen it three times in the past month, and I'm STILL noticing new things. This movie is the greatest!

To be perfectly frank, I don't really think there's anyway anyone can make a Mario Bros. movie and NOT have it come out like some 60's acid trip. Yes, you could do it in animation, and it should have been done in animation, but then, as now, despite the advances made in that particular field, people still regard cartoons as 'kids stuff', and in the world of movie business, that tends to limit your audience significantly. So for all intents and purposes, you could regard this as the first "successful" video game film. How fitting that it should belong to Mario.

and don't worry. As long as you know the movies good and you know of other fans, it's all good. I mean, seriously, who wants to see a movie where Mario and Luigi die every 5 minutes? I sure as hell wouldn't. That's why I love this movie. :)

John Leguizamo and Bob Hoskins used to drink on set and then go shoot their scenes. Needless to say, Cockney Bob could handle his shots much better than Dear Johnny, haha. Well one day, they had a big stunt with Luigi driving the Super Mario Brothers van and Mario standing by the door. He yells something along the lines of "Hurry up, Koopa's getting away!" so John hits the gas real hard and then the brake real hard and the door slams shut on Bob's hand and breaks his finger. Bob was pissed at the pain, but not John.

In the last scene, look real close. Bob's hand is unnaturally stiff. He's wearing a cast that they painted pink to look like skin.
