Super Mario Bros. 30-Second Summary

Once long ago a meteor crashed into earth and we all thought it wiped out dinosaurs. Little did we know the meteor split our reality into two sending the dinosaurs to an alternate earth where they evolved much like we did. In fact they just look human.

So in a movie that looks nothing like, and frankly has very little in common with, the video game from which it took it’s inspiration, two Italian plumbers named Mario and Luigi (played by Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo) must rescue Luigi’s new love interest who just so happens to be a stowaway dino person on our world from President Koopa (played by Dennis Hopper) after she is kidnapped and taken there.

Princess Daisy (Samantha Mathis) holds the only missing piece to the meteor which when made whole would thrust our realities back together. Koopa wants this to happen so he can conquer our world with his zany style, jumping boots, pinhead dinosaurs and fireball spitting guns that cannot hit a target.

Mario and Luigi are able after sorta doing nothing for the entire film to save the princess. Mojo Nixon has a small role which is pretty awesome just fast forward to 30 minutes in exactly. They also ruined Yoshi. I just saved you an hour and forty four minutes. You’re welcome. Paypal your thanks care of Shane T (Not that imposter Shane A) at Movie House Memories.
