    Rain Man for kids with a some Nintendo product placements throughout. Not that much of a Nintendo commercial though. Just a kid's runaway roadtrip.

              haha i love how insane the poster to the movie looks because you never get to see that many games get played but i still like it because it has some good points and lucas sucks at super mario 3 by the way lol

                Geez!...what can i say about this movie that hasnt been said yet?. Well its another childhood favorite of mine and is still a favorite of mine (im sure it always will be). And theres just something about this movie thats so..original.
                It never gets old and i found myself watching this over and over on YouTube recently and on one of the HBO channels last month. And its only people who grew up in the 80\'s or 90\'s that truly can understand what i mean.
                Im proud that i grew up in the 90\'s and got to have these movies and noone can take that away :) :) :)

                  It had to have been Toby McGuire, he looks exactly the same. It was towards the end when they are all outside the stadium, he was one of Lucas\'s friends (had on a pink shirt I think) He didn\'t have any lines, so he probably wasn\'t credited since he was basically an extra.

                    I never knew about the secret whistle in mario 3 until I saw this movie, and this was in 1995. A lot of my friends bag on this movie saying \"it\'s one big nintendo commercial but I still adore it. Fred Savage was such a great actor as a kid.

                      I still love this movie today just as much as I did when it first came out when I was 8 years old in 1989. It is my all-time favorite 80s movie. I think I wanted to move to California simply because of this movie.

                        i wish universal studios made a Nintendo competition every year. sucks that i was born in the 90\'s.
                          12 years, 9 months ago
                          man i love this movie

                            \"I touched her breasts. She doesn\'t have any breasts!\" haha classic! This movie is in my top favorites!

                              I just saw The Wizard for the first time in 10 years this week, and I loved it as much as I did when I was a kid.

                                This movie was marketed solely by having SMB3 footage in the commercials. Kids only went to see it because the game wasn\'t out yet.
                                  13 years, 5 months ago
                                  I liked this movie when I was a kid but I even @ 8 years old it seemed like the movie was made just to promote Nintendo. No offense intended, I would have totally died w/out my Nintendo.
                                    13 years, 6 months ago
                                    Liked this movie but was sad about the fact the little sister had died. Didn\'t quite grasp the concept of death at the age I watched it, I was 6.

                                      California!! California!!

                                        didn\'t i catch tobey mcguire in this movie? if it WAS him, then why isn\'t it listed in cast and credits?
                                          13 years, 10 months ago
                                          Sure, this movie was considered bad, but it\'s still mildly enjoyable (especially due to the extreme campiness).

                                            i spy jenny lewis from rilo kiley!

                                              I never saw this movie but now that I read the movie plot, I am also an autistic person that has a good talent for video games! I need to see this movie!
                                                14 years, 4 months ago
                                                This is one of many reasons why I had the most intense crush on Fred Savage. I think I still have this on vhs at my parents\' home. :-D
                                                  14 years, 5 months ago
                                                  I wish i could have adventures like you always used to in movies like that
