They also kind of ignored a few key details from the video game, like that fact that Mario and Luigi are fraternal twins of Italian descent. Instead of getting two Italians that look similar, they chose to hire a chubby British guy and a jittery Colombian.
It seems fitting that there are three directors listed on IMDB, because with a movie this bad it’s important that the blame is spread out.
After posting the previous picture of Luigi, I just assumed that I could search out John Leguizamo and see his beautiful steesh from the 1993 live-action Super Mario Bros. movie. Boy was I wrong. He played Luigi as a bald-lip.
At least he has had a mustache at some point in his life, as evidenced by the picture above.
But where is his integrity? People want to see movies that are true to the original story. What’s next – Romeo and Juliet set in a modern Florida town where the feuding families use guns instead of swords?
Luigi is portrayed as the slightly younger fraternal twin brother of Nintendo’s mascot Mario. Luigi first appeared in the 1983 arcade game Mario Bros. It’s sad to say this, but I just now realized that Mario and Luigi’s last name is Mario.
