A baby hatches out of an egg? I apparently missed that entire part when I played a Mario game. Full Review

Wildly overproduced and derivative. Full Review

Nintendo video game perennials Mario and Luigi come to life as plumbers who are thrust into a parallel dimension peopled by the descendents of dinosaurs. It seems that the meteor that hit the earth 65 million years ago (in Brooklyn, no less) didn't kill the dinosaurs, but hurled them into a world in which they have developed into a species of intelligent humanoids. And it is up to the Luigi brothers to save Princess Daisy, and life as we know it, from the megalomaniacal Koopa, who wants to merge the two dimensions and rule the world that will result.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
Super Mario Bros.
Buckle up and hang on tight -- the discovery of a parallel universe launches you into the adventure of a lifetime! Mario and Luigi, two wacky plumbers, undertake a daring quest to save a princess in "Dinohattan" -- a hidden world where the inhabitants evolved from dinosaurs! Mario (Bob Hoskins -- WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT) and Luigi (John Leguizamo -- REGARDING HENRY) face deadly challenges from a diaboloical lizard king (Dennis Hopper -- HOOSIERS) and must battle giant reptilian goombas, outwit misfit thugs, and undermine a sinister scheme to take over the world! Blast off for nonstop excitement with SUPER MARIO BROS., the live-action thrill ride that dazzled moviegoers everywhere!
- If the Brothers Grimm read Darwin and wanted to break into the movie business, this might have been the screenplay they would have written. Basically a fairy tale narrative with lots of cartoonish action and special effects. It does add a different wrinkle to the latest controversies in dinosaur scholarship, however.
- The Goombas are sort of cute (especially when they dance). And Dennis Hopper, as the pretender to the lizard throne, gets to chew up the scenery.
- Rated BBFC PG by the British Board of Film Classification.
