26 December 2003 | SSJAniFan
A very dark version of the light-hearted series.
Okay, I'll avoid everyone's usual comments of why they hated this movie and such. My main gripe with this awful film is one reason: the setting. In all Mario games, from Super Mario Bros. to Mario 64 to Mario Sunshine to Mario Party to Mario Tennis to Mario Golf to Mario Kart to Mario RPG to Super Mario World, and even in the 3 cartoon shows and in Smash Bros. I might add, the settings have always been happy, light-hearted, and made the person playing feel welcome to world of the Mushroom Kingdom. However, in the motion picture, we are taken to a very cold, hi-tech, dismal metropolis. Instead of a light-hearted, happy-go-lucky, feeling, we are now facing a dark and even depressing tone. Nothing of this setting makes the viewer feel welcome to the world like the games and cartoons did, which is why this fails to capture the real spirit of Mario(and Luigi).

Quotes

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 ...

Crazy Credits

After the closing credits, some Japanese business men ask Iggy and Spike about appearing in a video game based on the incidents in the movie.


Alternate Versions

In 2015, Discovery Family aired the film. Some scenes were edited/omitted because of time and content.

  • After Mario throws Luigi the water bottle, there's a wide shot of NYC that's been removed.
  • There's a commercial break, so the establishing NYC night shot before the Bella Napoli dinner scene is gone.
  • In the flooded construction site, Iggy and Spike's conversation after "What percent is that?" is cut out.
  • It cuts to Mario asking for Luigi's hand, cutting out the fun bit with him fixing the leak with multiple tools.
  • preparing some fried Tweeter on a bun.
  • After Big Bertha steals the rock, her Thwomp Stomper escape is missing the landing in the central walkway before stomping off again.
  • In the worst cut so far, Toad's entire monologue about parallel dimensions is gone.
  • Koopa: "Goomba." Toad's "Ahhh" response is gone.
  • Koopa: "Your de-evolution will be a living nightmare if you don't tell me where that meteorite piece is" is cut.
  • The prison escape sequences with cheering inmates is chopped down quite a bit.
  • Police Chase alteration--the shots on and around Luigi's: "Hey Mario, you're going the wrong way!" are gone.
  • Koopa: "Do you know what I love about mud?" lines are cut.
  • Iggy/Spike wanting to formulate their own strategy, "tete-a-tete, inner circle" lines are cut.
  • The wide shot of Dinohattan is gone, as well as the following Daisy/Yoshi scene.
  • Mario/Luigi using the Snifit masks to sneak past security is gone. It cuts straight to the Boom Boom Bar after the fight scene.
  • Mario "acquiring" the crystal from Bertha is trimmed down, likely to make it less risqué.
  • Mario and Luigi's "impossible" conversation in the Sludge Gulper is gone.
  • Koopa's scene with Daisy's father is cut short for a commercial, and it picks back up after it's over with Mario & Luigi.
  • Lena's "If not with you, then on my own" conversation with Koopa is cut, making her storyline pretty confusing afterwards.
  • The scene where Luigi begins to make the Goombas dance is cut in half.
  • The dancing Goombas being interrupted by their higher-ranking officer is trimmed down.
  • In another painful cut, Luigi's "Luigi Mario, you got a problem with that?" line has been removed.
  • Mario's "come and get it, ruffle-head" scene is cut so they can only show one shot of the Bob-Omb falling through the foundation.
  • After the merge back to Dinohattan, you won't see the Bob-Omb and the clown shoes guy.
  • The "Super Mario Bros." logo is missing from the end of the film.
