Super Mario Bros. Movie Flashback

Vintage Geek: Super Mario Bros. Movie

If you dig waaay back into your memories of the '90s, you might remember a little flick called Super Mario Bros'. Starring Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo. Do you remember, or did you block it out of your mind forever? I am a professed Mario super fan, so I don't like hating on anything where the lovable plumbers are involved, but this movie just didn't do it for me (or anyone else for that matter)!

Despite the success of the Mario franchise, the movie was a total flop at the box office, only bringing in $20 million to cover its $48-million budget. A pretty big number for '93. But who would have thought that a movie about two plumbing brothers who get sucked into an alternate universe via an interdimensional portal under the Brooklyn Bridge and end up fighting the evil King Koopa would be a flop? Hey, you can't blame me for its failure, I paid my four bucks to see it!

Back in the day I watched it, and thought it was really bad, but couldn't bring myself to hate it. It was about the Mario Brothers, after all!

I loved it when I was young and saw it (in theaters... :oops: ), but I don't remember much except how WEIRD Yoshi was! I think I should add this to my queue for old time's sake....

Actually I think this movie pretty much rocks. For real, I thought it was amazing. But I'm a dork and love anything Mario related.
