The Critics Were Wrong (Maybe)- Super Mario Bros (1993)

On the surface, converting a video game from the small screen to the silver screen seems like an easy task. The characters, plot and fan base are already in place. The only challenge is making the movie. Or so it seems.

In 1993, Super Mario Brothers was transferred from the small screen to the silver screen.

Mario Mario (the late Bob Hoskins) and his brother Luigi (John Leguizamo) are plumbers from Brooklyn. When Princess Daisy (Samantha Mathis) is kidnapped by the evil King Koopa (Dennis Hopper), Mario and Luigi must travel to another dimension to save the day.

Were the critics wrong? No. While I give the filmmakers an A for effort, this movie is just wrong for so many reasons.

Do I recommend it? No.
