Narrator:A long long time ago, the Earth was ruled by dinosaurs. They were big, so not a lot of people went around hassing 'em. Actually, no people went around hassling 'em cuz there weren't any people yet. Just the first tiny mammals. Basically, life was good...

Not-so-Super Mario Bros., 24 April 2006
Author: srobi280 from Hungary

This movie was a bad idea to begin with. First of all, it has nothing to do with the game. I know your next thought... "But if it was like the game then the movie would be boring LOL" Exactly, which is why this whole entire project should have been scrapped. I mean, what were they thinking? "Hmmm, the idea of a plumber running around, breaking bricks, killing enemies, and rescuing the princess is a boring idea, instead, let's just make up an entirely different plot."

So after having pulled this totally unrelated and awful plot out of their rectum, they decided to go ahead and make the movie. Making video games out of movies is one thing, but making movies out of video games is a completely different story. You can make an excellent game out of a movie, but it is very hard to make an excellent movie out of a game. In this case, the game would need to have a plot to begin with, not a shallow plot like the Mario games. The shallow plot works really well in video games, but it bombs on the big screen (just look at Street Fighter! Who's the genius who came up with that idea?) Don't see this movie. Stay far far away.
