Love The Goomba Chorus Line
TITLE: Super Mario Bros.
GENRE: SciFi Comedy, video game based
CAST: Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo, Dennis Hopper, Samantha Mathis, Fiona Shaw, Fisher Stevens, Richard Edson and Francesca Roberts
PLOT: The plumber brothers travel to a parallel dimension Brooklyn to save their girlfriends. Not only do they save the two girls but the two Brooklyns as well..
RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 8.5 of 10; For just entertaining diversion with a taste of science fiction to it, this film works. The special effects, the costumes the stunts and the sets are all very good. The character development is there. Everyone has their clearly defined roles to play and there are no unexplained extra bits, which means it was well edited. Panned for not being true to the video game, by itself, it does entertain. The musical background does not distract and comes into play for the dancing Goombas.
DVD BONUS: None
ADDED NOTES: The ending leaves the sense that a sequel was planned. Sadly, too much time has elapsed for that group to do a follow up. Then again, maybe a new group could shine even brighter.
