Super Mario Bros.
Bob Hoskins and Dennis Hopper




Overview -
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.

Notes:
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.

Reviews:
"...[Fiona Shaw] is an impressive, larger-than-life villainess..." - 06/07/1983 Variety
