I really love this movie and it's pretty not bad! This is one of the very best movie in 1993! 11/10!
GhostCollector Posted 6 years 15 days ago
I guess that's why there's no video game movies anymore.

Don't let what anyone says about this movie fool you. This is ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES OF ALL TIME. I grew up watching this. I watched it over a dozen times, and it got better each time. I bought it on VHS and DVD, it is that good. When I was a kid, I would pause the show and take pictures. That's right, I made my own screenshots before I even had a computer.

EPIC is the only way to describe this movie.

I love the AVGN and Nostalgia Critic, but I have to disagree with them. This movie was amazing, and I will watch it any day of the week.

This movie disappointed a lot of children. Myself included.
RN_JessieBear Posted 8 years 11 months ago
When I watched this as a kid, I seriously thought it was the best movie ever made. Now I think its corny, cheesy and horribly made.

LOL this was good movie too me.
I cry in the end tho...
MikoAmu Posted 9 years 4 months ago
This movie is disgraced to the real Mario Bros. Don't give me wrong, I love Mario Bros. Only the games, Anime, and the cartoons. But this.... Horrible.
Axle_Starr Posted 9 years 4 months ago
I understand how people can hate this film, but I still love it
Benjanime Posted 9 years 7 months ago
the writers from nintendo power magazine made it sound like this movie was going to be mindblowing as they were showing production photos in one page. and even with those photos you could see how rancid it would eventually turn out

BALLS.
retrodave Posted 9 years 8 months ago
i think Yoshi was the only thing that was closely related to the game. but most movies based off of game suck any way
xenomorph Posted 9 years 10 months ago
what was up with yoshi? They might as well have just used a cgi yoshi (as awful as it would've looked back then) it would still be better than the animatronic jurassic park looking thing.
CartoonKing2 Posted 9 years 10 months ago
Oh god, this movie SUCKED! It was just pathetic. A complete disgrace to a classic video game series
niksteve70 Posted 9 years 10 months ago
people rant on this movie but what did u expect when you heard live action mario bros movie
highwind1985 Posted 9 years 11 months ago
Haters gonna hate, I loved this movie as a kid and it's still a guilty pleasure today.
shockwavemotion Posted 10 years 28 days ago
I was very hopeful when i heard it was coming out but when i saw it a great sadness filled me then emptiness just a god awful movie to each his own i guess.
thedude89 Posted 10 years 28 days ago
I thought the fact that it was based on one of the greatest franchise games in history made this movie interesting,and i gotta be honest it wasn't as bad as people describe it.i would definitely pay to see a sequel.
Deleted Posted 10 years 2 months ago
It made me cringe watching the movie the first time. "Mario and Luigi use rocket boots, WTF?! Goombas and Koopas are big giant monsters with small lizard heads, WTF?! Yoshi is a real looking reptilian lizard. WTF?!" Over and over again pointing every small thing wrong with this movie.

I think the only thing they remotely got right was the Bomb-ombs. I mean, god. And this movie alone along with very few others before it, got the ball rolling for many more cringing video game to movie adaptations for years to come.

its been a looong time since i've seen this movie some people didn't have positive reviews about this 1 but i liked it
phoenixwizard Posted 10 years 2 months ago
This movie is so crappy, that's it's awesome.What did you expect? It's based off Super Mario, by people who probably didn't play video games.
blackranger238 Posted 10 years 4 months ago
I actually enjoyed this movie

Love_Lover Posted 11 years 7 months ago
This is the worst movie I've ever seen. I love the Mario games, but this movie stunk like a skunk.
TV1985 Posted 11 years 8 months ago
As much as Super Mario Bros.: The Movie still has mixed opinions, I do give some credit that Dennis Hopper did say years before this movie was made that he bumped into his long-time friend, Jack Nicholson while Tim Burton was directing Batman with him, Michael Keaton, and Kim Bassinger back in 1989, and then said he also he would like to be a villain in a kids movie like his long-time friend who he first met with in Easy Rider along with their other long-time friend, Peter Fonda.

Barbarax Posted 11 years 10 months ago
Horrible movie... just horrible
BenJamin Posted 11 years 10 months ago
Bad movie. Didn't stay true to the video game. Koopa a human? Come on! And poor Bob Hoskins. At least he finally admitted that doing this movie was a mistake. Good thing Uwe Boll didn't make this movie.
Mbm744 Posted 11 years 10 months ago
this movie was lame, but i still like it. it was very different from the video games, and it was kinda weird.
AcidDrop Posted 11 years 10 months ago

This movie solidified my love for the Mario Brothers games and John Leguizamo.

i remeber it all being about the introduction to daisy not peach. great movie. i think i remember it being on disney. I miss it
MAdman316 Posted 12 years 4 months ago
This film was complete shite! Another example of a good game being turned into a lame film.
FrankyCash Posted 12 years 5 months ago
Great movie. Especially the elevator-dancing scene.... HILARIOUS!

lugigi had no stash like mario lol
TinyNietzchePose Posted 12 years 7 months ago
i never got the chance to see this all the way through. all i remember about this movie was not really being able to follow what was going on, but loving it regardless [on account of how much of a super mario whore i was as a little kid]
yup, good times..
Drageye Posted 12 years 7 months ago
Great movie whens the sequel coming out lol.

I love Mario this was so corny though you have to admit

I liked this movie when I seen it growing up. Good memories!
ythegreat Posted 12 years 9 months ago
This was probably one of the worst movies of the time, it was a disgrace to Mario, I only love it now because of the feeling of nostalgia.
Retrogamer92 Posted 12 years 10 months ago
I saw this movie on the Disney Channel a long time ago and thought it was pretty cool. I also have the movie storybook.

I'm not gonna lie. I loved this movie when it first came out. Now, well I can still watch it at least. It wasn't as bad as Double Dragon though.

Super Mario Bros., the movie, is what I expect they show to prison inmates who escape and then are re-captured.

an old friend of mine owns this movie and to this day he still watches it just to laugh at all the ridiculous stuff that was in the movie. the fat black woman with rocket shoes is just too much for me XD

I heard alot of people saying this movie sucked, but I still want to see it.
legendofganon Posted 13 years 8 months ago
I loved this movie! It had little-to-nothing to do with the actual game, but that didn't bother me at all. It had Mario and Luigi, and they were trying to save the world.

This movie sucked big time.
PrincessTana Posted 14 years 1 month ago
This movie was alright.....I mean Yoshi wasn't a cute little green dino in the movie, The koompas where not mushroom kids, King Koompa was totally wrong (but the actor who played him was good being a bad guy)...but that "snot" part of the movie now that was GREAT it was hillarius.
TV1985 Posted 14 years 1 month ago
Finally, I have seen the theatrical trailer of Super Mario Bros.

I do wish that the DVD could have had the trailer on its special features.
Benjanime Posted 14 years 1 month ago
mkay, i'll agree with the others who left comments. this movie wasn't even like the game. also, i don't even know how it could be possible. the game is basically in a cartoon-based world. i mean come on, yoshi was a dinosaur meant to be ridden on, not just some mystical creature like they put in the movie!
Melanie85 Posted 14 years 2 months ago
My brothers and I were the only ones that loved this movie out of all of our friends. Everyone would alywas point out how they are the Mario Brothers, not the Mario uncle and nephew. It's just a movie is what we would say... i need to find it.
MRCSL1 Posted 14 years 2 months ago
Best BAD movie ever, but I'm pretty much a stupid person.

I'm searching for the trailer of Super Mario Bros on YouTube. It's too bad the DVD doesn't come with it's trailer.

princess_of_power Posted 14 years 6 months ago
To funkenstein, I'm with ya all the way! And I love your avatar. And yes, I love this movie. Does it follow the video game well? Not exactly, but who cares. Oh, and John Leguizamo made me totally realize I was a woman because one of the things about this movie I couldn't get out of my head is how damn fine he was as Luigi (and still is)!
kamil1111 Posted 14 years 6 months ago
YEA I LOVE THIS MOVIE
retroguy78 Posted 14 years 8 months ago
I thought John Leguizamo was cool as Luigi, but I though Samantha Mathis as Daisy was fine.
Gabriel Posted 14 years 8 months ago
LOL i have just ordered this movie at a store.
I remember that when i was 8-9 years old i was home at a friends house and watched this.
I thought this was a realy cool movie.
So this last friday i went and ordered it at the store.
Im so excited to see this again.
blueluigi Posted 14 years 9 months ago
This is a good movie. Though it's kind of weird however. But there is a couple I got to say, WHO CASTED JOHN LUGISIMO TO PLAY AS LUIGI!?!?!?!?! I mean come on yo, he doesn't look like luigi, and the secrity character on Koopa's screen, I think THAT should have been Luigi I mean he makes the perfect role for him and also this doesn't really relate to the games except for the fact that Mario, Luigi, Toad, Daisy, and Bowser and his minions are in it. But other than that it was a great movie though I like the cartoons better but still.
MicroMan Posted 14 years 10 months ago
I recorded this movie and I have it somewhere in my attic. It's not a bad movie, but the enemies should have looked more like the enemies from the games. Is this movie supposed to be based on one of the games?
mr-funky Posted 14 years 11 months ago
John Leguizamo wasn't a Luigi at all...wheres the mustache?
MegaCatZero Posted 14 years 11 months ago
Super Mario Bros., yes, I knew him even better than I knew Batman when I was a little kitty.... I own this movie on DVD..... It's not good... It's not incredible... IT'S AWESOME!!! GODDAMNIT, AWESOME!!! THE BEST MOVIE OF 1993!!!
TV1985 Posted 15 years 1 month ago
I wonder where I could find the movie trailer or a tv spot of Super Mario Bros.: The Movie.
The_D Posted 15 years 2 months ago
The first movie based on a game.. but it sucked ALOT. to me it was just an atempt for hollywood to make money
BigFatPaulie Posted 15 years 4 months ago
Oh Bob, why did you do this to yourself? And why did they have a hispanic person play Luigi?
OldOldschooler Posted 15 years 6 months ago
everything was in the future it sukd but it was a tight movie it should have ben like the game where they are in the jungle and on plains or what ever the vanilla cave or whatever its called lol
retro_nerd Posted 15 years 6 months ago
Horrible horrible thing they did to the franchise.
I was four and knew the movie blew chunks. Everything was so messed up.
mrs-link Posted 15 years 6 months ago
HEHEHE i thought the princess was cool but the movie i thought was funny. crappy yet funny. so bad it was funny hehehehe
Daikun Posted 15 years 6 months ago
This movie is the worst video game-movie adaptation in history. If I were signed on to direct this, I would've made it much different and follow closer to the original games.
TV1985 Posted 15 years 6 months ago
There was a talk about making a part 2 of Super Mario Bros. back in 1996. But it never happend. I feel bad that there wasn't any sequils to this movie. I also admit that Princess Daisy was hot in that pinkish purple dress.

Maybe if they start over and make a new Super Mario Bros. movie, they could possibly make sequils with that new Super Mario movie.
Phantasmagoria_3D Posted 15 years 7 months ago
This movie was cheesy, but it WAS also pretty good! Maybe not the best VG adaptation I've seen, but it's still quite enjoyable and entertaining! During its theatrical release in 1993, it was considered a box office failure, but the reason for that was because it did not stay true to the game! Additionally, some of the characters looked almost NOTHING like how they normally would. I myself, was also a bit disappointed at first when I saw this, but after a couple more watches I started to understand it all better. This is a darker version of the Super Mario Bros. but with a little comic relief thrown in here and there. The only best method to make the characters look exactly how they did in the cartoon/game would be to use CGI, which wouldn't be all that convincing. Dennis Hopper made a decent King Koopa, though his character could've been more menacing, and Bob Hoskins made a very funny Mario! It's also cool that all the baddies are still there: goombas, koopas, bob-ombs, and even snifits! Those who bash this movie should take note of all this and re-watch the movie again with an open mind. It's not as bad as some say it is.
CheezNapkin Posted 15 years 7 months ago
Ugh, don't remind me.
eep Posted 15 years 7 months ago
talk about garbage. this movie had NOTHING to do with the video game storyline. sorry.
vennardio Posted 15 years 7 months ago
They didnt need a part 2 dickhead, fuck you you stupid dick, Dennis was a crap Koopa, you fucking wanker, cock-sucking twat!!!!!!
vennardio Posted 15 years 8 months ago
I know exactly what you mean about cooper, he had stupid blonde hair put back with grease. I loved those guys who were given the tiny dino heads, especially the one with the harmonica, i still look back and laugh at it now
TV1985 Posted 15 years 8 months ago
I loved Super Mario Bros.: The Movie! That is what I call it.

I think that they could have made Dennis Hopper look much more like King Koopa from the video game and cartoon series of Super Mario Bros.

For a movie based off a cartoon series and/or video game, I would have to say that Super Mario Bros.: The Movie was just as good as Masters of the Universe (1987) and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995).

If anyone ever makes a Super Mario Bros. movie in the future, I suggest make all the characters look like they do in the video game or cartoon series. And make King Koopa a C.G.I. character and make him look like he does in the video game and cartoon series.
