Can you make a movie out of a video game? That's the question that is answered by this film. Mario Mario and Luigi Mario, two hard working plumbers find themselves in an alternate universe where evolved dinosaurs live in medium hi-tech squalor. They find themselves the only hope to save the Earth from invasion.Written by

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 ...

Less to do with SMB than pie has to do with solar-powered laser beams
The truth about this movie is that it really isn't all that bad, it's just that this movie has so little to do with Super Mario Bros. other than the characters' names, it really isn't even a Super Mario Bros. Movie. It's just a movie that has Super Mario Bros. in the title.
Take Toad, in this movie. In the game, he was a cute little mushroom dude, in the movie, he's some weird guy who plays the guitar on the street and sings songs. And Bowser is not a menacing turtle-creature in this movie, he's a dude with funky ridges on his head.
This movie has an interesting plot, but no one will notice because they're too busy trying to figure out where the SMB stuff is at. Where are the funny-looking mushroom guys? The turtles with wings? Is that Yoshi? Why doesn't Mario ride him while he's slurping up enemies? Where are the perilous lava pits and the green mushrooms that give you extra lives? And where the hell is Kuribo's Shoe?
The movie would have been better off if they had just done away with the SMB license and released it as an original movie. So, if you want, you can see it, but try to imagine that it's not a Super Mario Bros. movie.
