Trivia

Tom Hanks wanted the role, but Nintendo worried that the star of Turner & Hooch (1989) and Joe Versus the Volcano (1990) couldn't headline a blockbuster. See more »

Goofs

At the ledge just before they enter the alternate dimension, you can hear the words "Watch it!" as Mario and Luigi switch places. It's obviously Mario speaking, but if you look, he isn't. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: A long long time ago, the Earth was ruled by dinosaurs. They were big, so not a lot of people went around hassling 'em. Actually, no people went around hassling 'em cuz there weren't any people yet. Just the first tiny mammals. Basically, life was good. Then something happened: a giant meteorite struck the Earth. Goodbye dinosaurs! But what if the dinosaurs weren't all destroyed? What if the impact of that meteor created a parallel dimension where the dinosaurs continued to thrive ...

Why is everyone taking this so seriously?
29 July 2003 | by (Orlando, Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a cheesy movie for people who play video games. I don't understand why some people adamantly insist this movie should never have been made. It's cute and entertaining. It doesn't stay completely loyal to the game storyline, but Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo are perfect for these two roles. Worth watching if you see it on TV.
