Several of those involved consider this to be the single worst “creative” project they’ve ever worked on.
A Colombian (John Leguizamo) and a Brit (Bob Hoskins) play two Italian plumbers from Brooklyn. Dennis Hopper plays a half-lizard, half-man, which actually is only slightly different from the roles he usually plays. At one point, Hopper uses the Super Scope, an actual Nintendo game console peripheral, as a weapon. There’s so much wrong with this movie that The Wizard — which features a Rainman-like child savant trying to make his way to California to play Super Mario Bros. 3 — is actually the superior Super Mario Bros. movie.
The first video game movie, and possibly the worst.
