Penelope Cruz as Mario

Nintendo had the right idea about hiring Penelope Cruz to dress as Mario in a new ad. Where they went wrong is not having her dress in the Mario Bikini that may or may not exist yet.

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.

Luigi – Steeshy Mario Bros.

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.

Bald Bull

Bald Bull was a part of the Punch-Out series from Nintendo. He makes up exactly half of what I know about Istanbul. The other half is Omer Asik of the Chicago Bulls. So if anyone asks me about Istanbul I tell them that it’s 100% men, 50% of them half a mustache and 50% can only score if they are left uncovered for 4 seconds.
