Back in the 80’s when the Nintendo Entertainment System came out, the world changed for millions of kids. The world was introduced to Mario and the game was a mega-hit. Sequels to the game soon followed and before long Hollywood came knocking. Skip ahead to 1993 and the world is now introduced to the live-action Mario and Luigi. Brought to life by Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo with Dennis Hopper playing the evil King Koopa. The film was a big flop at the box office, which isn’t a huge surprise. This film is weird. But how do you adapt a video game about a plumber in Mushroom Kingdom? These filmmakers sure gave it a try, and failed pretty badly. Check out what the guys have to say about it below!
