Trivia

For unknown reasons, the entire ending of the movie has been cut for the Italian release. In this version, the film ends with the Goombas dancing in queue outside the de-evolution machine, waiting to return normal. Even the end credits were altered, with the inclusion of scenes from the whole movie and with the Roxette's song, "Almost Unreal", replaced with "Speed of Light" by Joe Satriani, which it's also part of the soundtrack of the film.

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 ...

Daft fun.
30 March 2002 | by (Belfast, N.Ireland) – See all my reviews

The plot:Two plumbers who are known as the Marios, meet a strange young girl that has a rock on her neck. Two idiots from another world kidnap the strange girl known as Daisy, after kidnaping other girls from Brooklyn. The two Marios decide to rescue her from the Two Idiots that have taken her to another world ruled by an evil king known as Koopa.

The View:Performances aren't the major thing here, but the special effects and creations are to be noticed more. The movie itself isn't bad and as a comedy, will have a few(just a few)giggles. It's all really just a fun fantasy movie that just doesn't shine through and doesn't make any effort to make an historical movie, but the film is fun and you will enjoy it as a complete no-brainer. ***
