Bob Hoskins and Why The People In Charge Of The Super Mario Bros. Movie Probably Never Worked In Hollywood Again

Surprisingly, the people in charge of the Super Mario Bros. movie got it right that Mario should have a mustache. That’s where their success stopped. We’ve already established that they blew it on Luigi’s mustache.

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.
